Scotty for President: fix cars, fix the U.S.! Scotty, my 2004 Vino 125-cc Scooter w/ 4,923-mi. has ALWAYS taken a few attempts to start when I crank it, despite always using a Battery Tender. Lately she just cranks but won't start if engine's warm. She rarely starts w/ kick-starter. But! If I push her quickly down the street 100-feet... hop aboard, turn the key on quickly & crank it, she starts right up! Bewildering! Where all should I look to fix this? Thanx for helping. Nearly got stranded last week.

No. 1-1


remove the carburetor and replace or rebuild it. scooters eat up carbs
