My scooter use to run like a charm, but later it would only start when I directly prime the carb with gas, would a gas line have a hole in the line or is it also the CDI

I am amazed at how many scooter owners don't know what the CDI is or does. It causes about 5% of all the problems with scooters and gets blamed for 50% of the problems. They do and can go bad, but the percentage is very low. The CDI is the ignition, it provides spark to the plug. If the CDI was shot, it wouldn't start whether you primed the Carb or not. You have a fuel delivery problem, carb, gas pump, gas line, etc.

The pump on mine is part of the carb assembly.
Your scooter is Chinese, so the engine is probably a GY6 which is standard in 99% of all Chinese scooters. scootdawg.com is a Chinese scooter forum. It would be the place to get some help.

Checked the gas, cleaned the filter, battery is good, in-line fuse not blown. The scooter used to start fine but now it won't start. Turns over but doesn't seem to have any spark. Only has 1200 miles. Any suggestions?

I's your scooter and you can do with it what you want. But if it were me, I would go for the cheapest repair possible, or just get rid of it. Chinese scooters are junk. You fix this problem and another will come up. They are money pits. After awhile you have more money in the scooter than you would have spent on a good quality name brand in the first place. Not to mention the lost riding time because your great bargin Chinese scoot is in the garage broke down. BTDT

So I have a 2009 50cc peace sport scooter. I have some of the same problems as some of these other people. I start it up and it usually dies after a few seconds. Once I get going the speed is really slow. When I come to a stop the scooter stalls again. This happens for the first 3- 5 minutes. After that it tends to run better. Sometimes it stalls and sometimes it doesn't. Adjusted the carb and makes it worse. Seems to be getting worse. Need help and detailed descriptions, not very tech savy.
open up the seat and there are hoses check these for cracks or where sometimes they break and will cause the stalling

I have a peace sports 2011 50 cc scooter, under 1,000 miles. When I first got it, it would do 40 to 42mph. Now it only will do 30 to 35 mph. Now it will cut off when I come to a stop at a stop sign. Sometimes when I turn it on it will idle and then die. I have cleaned out carburetor, replaced the spark plug, drained the gas, ran new gas lines, checked the air filter, and cleaned jets on carburetor. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas on how I can get running right again? You can e-mail your responses to [email protected] Thank you in advance for any information that you are able to give.
