Ok so I had a problem with the ignition. The scooter would go for a klm or 2 and then stop. I thought it was a fuel problem, so I cleaned the carb bowl, jets and fuel filter. The scooter went well for 2 or 3 days and then the problem started again. Ride 1 or 2 klms and then the scooter would stop. I cleaned the carb again and this time it did not work as before.
I could ride 1 km and then the scooter would stop. I would then wait 2 or 3 min and kick start and it would go 500 meters and stop again.
I changed the cdi unit, the problem continued.
I changed the pickup unit, on the stator, and the problem continued.
The bike went a lot better for 1 or 2 klm and then the scooter stopped as before. I waited 2 or 3 min and kick started it. It went 500 or 600 meters and then stopped.
The decompression that activates when starting with the starter is used (clutch pulled in) cannot be deactivated.
That is when I try to kick start the kick starter has no resistance. The flywheel still has resistance.
I can start the engine with a fully charged battery. If the revs drop below a quarter throttle the engine dies. The clutch will engage 1st, however when the clutch is released the bike won't move.
Any ideas as to what the problem might be.
