Hey everyone, Iím hoping someone can help. Iíve scoured previous posts and videos but my current problem is quite tricky to search for...
I bought an ET2 that was having trouble starting, it turns over but no fire. Iíve been working through all the recommended steps, Iíll list what Iíve done so far at the bottom. but the only time it has actually got running was when the fuel was not hooked up. I was testing whether the vacuum was working so had the fuel hose off and going into a bucket, the scooter started(!) Then without fuel it started again and again perfectly. I thought maybe the engine was flooded so I rode it down my drive until it burned off whatever fuel was in there (maybe this was big mistake?) and then reconnected everything. The engine hasnít started since. Iím flummoxed. It seems logical that the fuel is the issue but Iím not wise enough to know what my next steps are.
Oh yes and now when I try and start it sounds much more pathetic than it has done previously like itís battery is low but I still get a 11.46 on the multimeter at the batt and have one of those external charging things telling me the batt is fully charged. perhaps I need to check the charge is actually reaching the starter? Or somewhere else?
So far I have -
Drained and replaced the fuel
Changed the fuel tap
Tested the vacuum line
Changed the spark plug
Tested the spark
Charged and checked the battery and fuse
Checked the automatic choke
Changed the air filter
Cleaned the carburettor
I think thatís it, thereís probably some key info Iíve missed out.
Hope that makes some form of sense and sorry if Iíve misnamed things.. I am quite good at following internet instructions but this is my first scooter so I am a novice
Thanks so much
