Starting a Derbi Diablo C5

Vincent Vanbraughn /

I recently become the proud owner of a Diablo C5 moped. It's in great condition but I am having trouble starting it. If I take the engine cover of and manually spin the crank I can get it to turn over and it purrs like a kitten. But if I jump on it and try and pedal it to start it I get nothing, in or out of gear.

You need to make sure the shift lever on top of the engine is in drive mode, not pedal mode. Then, squeeze the decomp lever, and push the bike..once you get moving and hear the engine turning, release the decomp. Should start up

You will not be able to pedal on the bike to start it, unless it's on the center stand.

Nice bike, I'm jealous.

You can start by sending it over to me.
