When I bring my throttle to an idle the scooter just stalls and turns off. Also, when I start it I need to give it some throttle to start. Even when it is warm after driving for a bit it will still not idle.

Not sure how to solve this. Will attach photo of engine.

If adjusting the idle end-stop doesn't help, you'll need to clean the carb, especially the idle jet. Also check the air filter is clean and lightly oiled.

The screw clamp holding the intake manifold tube and the carburetor looks loose. The mark on the body of the screw clamp doesn't line up with anything on the screw head, and on the clamp at the other end of the carb it does line up with a mark. Try pushing the carb and manifold together and tightening the screw clamp. A vacuum leak could be your problem.
