Hi guys for the ones who didn't scroll past when they saw the word scooter, cheers :)

A mate of mines brother bought an absolute hunk of crap on his 16th, italjet formula 50 :/

Any way when he bought it it all worked but wouldn't idle but he was fine with that so he kept riding it and left it at home when he came back to it, it wouldn't start :o

So I told him bring it to mine and I'll have a look at it for him and after cleaning the mucky carbs and blowing an air compressor clearing all the pipes the bike started first time from the electric start but won't idle whatsoever it just dies like it did before :/

I've checked for an idle screw on the carb and its not even got one 0.o and the tube which goes from the carburettor to the air box has a massive cut in it :(

Would the massive cut in that pipe prevent idling and should it have an idle screw?

yess the split could stop it idling wrap some tape round it as temp fix to see if that helps also the idle might be set from where the cable goes into the carb check to see if there is an adjuster

 

Hi, so i did that and now it idles for about 5-10 seconds and then stalls :/ as it's such a weird make there is like no spares for it :/
