Piaggio problems

I have had my Ciao for about 4 days now, and the first 1 or 2 days it ran perfect. Now when i come to a stop it dies unless i keep giving it gas. if it does die it cant start unless i let it sit for about 3 minutes. this is getting incredibly annoying and its taking the fun out of this good ped.

Did you change and gap the plug? is your fuel mix right? its the air vent in your gas cap working?


Re: Piaggio problems

thanks it may be the plug. i shall check tomorrow. ive used the fuel mix before worked fine, and i know the vent is working because ive taken the gas line to the carb off and the gas flowed at a solid rate. it looks like an older plug. ill prob buy a new one. is there a certain size plug for a moped?

Re: Piaggio problems

For my Ciao I used NGK B5HS and B6HS, both worked fine depending on how hot you want your spark. Though I trust NGK more, you can also use Champion L86C.

Check your idle screw and your throttle slide too.

Re: Piaggio problems

should i tighten or loosen the idle screw?

thanks for all this help

Turn it in to increase the idle.

Re: Piaggio problems

do a search on "Idle jet" and another on "brake light bulb"

the results you find will fix your problem
