I have been away for a while traveling so I did not ride or have issues or even answer in this forum. Now I am back and I will be write more.
In the past two weeks I worked on my scooter: Piaggio MP3, 400ie, 2009 model.
In the past two weeks I worked on my scooter: Piaggio MP3, 400ie, 2009 model. The issue was the parking brake cable got damaged, so it needed changing. So I put my sleeves up and got to it. This job required to strip the Scooter till all is removed, just the chassis and the motor, what a job!!! it took me 3 days with a help of a mechanic for when I got stuck. I enjoyed it and it was a learning curve. As mentioned I striped it down and put it back, one note, I had few extra screws.....
the mechanic told me it is normal , the issue is after I put everything back and attaching all the cables etc... once I put the tilt lock on and then use the throttle to move, the scooter does not release the tilt lock and does not move, the motor hicks up... until I have to remove the tilt using the button on the scooter, and if I push it, it will turn off a (in the video from start till 0:39, and from 1:35 to 1:50). Once I unlock the tilt manually, it will run beautifully, see the video.
I like to know if anyone experienced this? Or knows what is the most probable cause/issue, before I strip it again. Any advice or comments will be appreciated.
I did a video in Youtube, please see it to know what I am mean or facing:
