Big Boy Pulse cuts out when you sit on it after starting
« on: February 14, 2018, 11:13:58 AM »
Hi Guys, My son got a scooter recently , suddenly the scooter will drive a few meters and cut out , it was found it was only when he sat on it that it cut out though.
I have checked all the vacuum hoses and fuel lines but dont see any pinches , has anyone had issues similar to this i can check first before dismantling his bike to find it something simple.
Any help will be great thanks

Have you tried checking the carburetor? It's located under the seat under the removable plastic cover. What rpm is the scooter idling on?

Sound like it's be pinching/kink somewhere, the weight of sitting on it - obviously difficult to diagnose once it's stripped, as the bits pinching are no no longer there - look for any rubbing or residue on the fuel line and vacuum hoses. Else, the fuel filer is clogged.
