Viza Venom scooter won't run for more than 2 mins? Answered

My son's Venom scooter has a Mitsubishi TLE 33cc motor on it and it starts just fine and warms up just fine but after a couple of mins of riding on it, it bogs down and dies. I had a guy look at it and he thinks the motor is cracked. Does anyone know where i can get a replacement Mitsubishi TLE 33 motor?

You have nothing to loose by stripping the engine down, you will learn a lot, may find the fault and may even be able to fix it. Replacement should be a last resort.

Apparently the John Deere string trimmer uses the same TLE33 motor.

Might have a stuck choke causing a super rich/flooding condition, when it dies smell at the exhaust area to see if theres an abundance of fuel fumes.

Check the compression to see if the motor is cracked, if you dont have a compo tester, pull the spark plug and hold the port closed with your finger, good compression will tend to blow your finger off the plug hole.

Might be easier to take the motor to a scooter place and check for a swap over.
You only need the right electronics for the motor and on most small engines they are similar.
So the only thing of real concern would be the motor mounts and fittings for exhaust and carby.
Otherwise go to your local harware store and by a brush cutter / lawn trimmer - a lot of them use your engine.
