Rear Tire and Carburetor

Hello,

Ok so i have a turbo 5000 GT gas scooter and we rode it for the first time yesterday but we stopped when we realized that the rear tire was leaking air. It was around where you inflate the tire. It has a new inner tube.

Second (same bike) when you start the bike you put the carburetor into the first position (more air) then you switch into the second position it gives less air and is in the driving mode. When we switch it into the second position it just dies.

Thanks, Suction Cup

Re: Rear Tire and Carburetor

Not sure what a Turbo 5000 GT gas scooter is. Is it new or old?? What is the engine size, 43, 49cc. There are many different scooters, does it have a brand name like Go-Ped?? Does it have a twist throttle?? Sounds like a China made. Does it look anything like this.

Garage
start up should be choke on which is less air then after it's running choke off which should be more air if you start it and you have to ride it with the choke on that means that your carburetor is clogged and needs to be cleaned out or replaced

the tube might have gotten pinched when installed it happens

Welcome to the forum....What you described sounds like you have choke on choke off mixed up.......


When the flap is blocking the carb entrance the choke is on...This means the engine gets extra fuel and lesser air to get it to initially start-up...

If you can get your bike to start with the choke flap not blocking the carb entrance you need to tune-it in as its set too rich...

Good Luck with it

Re: Rear Tire and Carburetor

A new China carb is around $10, You have a Walbro clone 15mm pumper carb, There all over eBay. If you do, also get a 15x44mm V-stack and hp air filter. You might look for an inner tube to fit your rear tire. See photos.

Its cool....It happens...Just giving you the 411...You definitely got the engine size right so don't sell yourself short...

Those things were also manufactured by APC.....

First thing Id do is replace the sparkplug...Its NGK BPM6A/ BPM7A


Also if you have a jewelers screwdriver you can adjust the carb via the LSN ? HSN adjustment screw on the top of the carb....





But for starters try turning the screw on the side of the carb about 1/8 turn clockwise to lessen the fuel rate...
