GY6 50 cc chinese scooter won't start. What could it be?
I bought a 50 cc scooter that was sitting for some time. It's 2008 model and it had around 400 km when I got it. That's pretty low in my opinion. Well at first it was running fine. I mad around 100 km on the first day.
Well the second day it didn't start. Thankfully my friend helped me and he said that my carburetor is dirty. He celaned it and scooter started up. I made around 60km on the same day with no problem.
In the morning the next day my scooter wouldn't start. I tried to do the same as him. I cleaned carburetor and fuel filter but scooter still wouldn't start. It doesn't start electrically or kick start.
It's like 5th day and my scooter still won't start.
What happens when i turn it on:
- sometimes it sounds just like a dc motor spinning but nothing happens (there is no cranking sound)
- usually it makes cranking sounds but doesn't start
- when I let it sit for a while (for 30min, 1h, day ...) it makes a sound like it almost started up but then dies
Thank you all for help!
I would like to apologize for my lack of english words in engines and bikes field (not a native english speaker and I'm not specialized in those fields).
