New Vespa ET-4 owner....well, I should say used Vespa owner. Could use some help. She starts fine but bogs down when trying to accelerate to a point where it will stop running. Start back up fine; it just won't accelerate. Where should I start?

I'd start with a comprehensive tune up and rebuild the fuel system- carb clean, new lines and hoses, check the manifold for cracks.

Definitely drain and flush the tank.

There's a lot of great info and how to stuff here, use the search function to get acquainted with your bike and figure out some of the jobs.
