02 Honda Met 50 loses power instantly when key is tuned

Hello I am brand new to this forum and this is my first post. I recently found two scooters that were in like new physical condition but didn’t run for a couple hundred dollars. One just needed a battery and carb clean and it is going but the second one needed a bit more.

So I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel lines and filter, cleaned the carb and replaced the battery. When I turn the key the scooter lights up for about a second and then there is an audible click and then the scoot loses power.

My buddy said it sounds like a bad solenoid but my local parts dealer had to order one so I thought I would post to see if anyone else recognizes the issue.

Thanks so much!

Ok so pretty dumb but after I posted my question I sat down and tried to walk back through everything I had done to the bike and I ended up discovering I forgot to plug the fuel pump in after I replaced it.

Dumb but the good news is both bikes are running!

Those Honda’s will almost run without gas! Great purchase, are they Metropolitans ?

What Year ? Thanks

Almost! Yes 02 Honda Metropolitan and an 02 Yamaha Vino, both in really great shape. This is the first time I have ever tried this and it was awesome.

If you think those are fun, wait til you discover mopeds!

Neat little bikes tho. Good deal too

Those scooters are awesome! I just picked up a 1965 C100 Cub, probably wasn’t a great deal but it runs perfect and everything works,getting the cosmetic issues fixed now
