Vuka xl125 Engine Troubles
« on: February 27, 2017, 09:40:24 AM »
Hi there

Been having a really difficult time with my Vuka xl125, bought it second hand and have had some problems, been able to sort the minor problems out but now I'm unfortunately stuck with a new one.

My bike had to have the drive belt replaced as it had broken along with a couple of bearings, everything has been replaced as it was and put back together. The problem I sit with now is that there seems to be no power at all, when its on the center stand and the wheel stands and runs freely when you give it a bit of gas. Put it down on its wheel, or hold the wheel in place and the engine just dies.

If anybody has had this problem or may know of a solution, please help  :help:

Never heard of this before, but I suspect the carb diaphragm might be torn/worn.

Check the transmission for faults. Also what blujeenz said. It could be many things. Another culprit could be the clutch assembly( torque spring) the big spring. It could have twisted and could be pre engaging

take it to a mechanic!

edit: it's quite obvious that the clutch and the drum are engaging. Reasons could be:

- clutch shaft nut has come loose (then you would have a bulge on the outside of the transmission cover)
- broken clutch spring
- broken clutch shoe

whatever is wrong, you are not going to find the answer until you remove the transmission cover and examine your clutch.
