ya drain the gas and use the right mixture and right oil ps i race and build gopeds put in new plug and clean out the carb then pull the hell out of it till it fires the nice thing about my goped sport is i can kick start it
I am also in need of help.I bought a petrol scooter and my engine stopped working within a month.I was out on it when the engine stopped running and when i go to pull the pull start it is jammed.Anyone got any suggestions?
make sure the engine ain't froze. its either that or the pull string is stuck. etc.
matyio chances r its seized i reccomend buying a goped and junk the china scooter as they are garbage and dangerous
i have bought three of the little headaches and the first thing i had to do is change the fuel lines :freak: then the wheel bearings ,, now all three are sitting collecting dust with broken chains ,, anyone know where to score chain for them ? sounds like to me maytio has one thats locked up ,,if it is still under warranty i would march it right back in there remember the ole mantis tiller engines that had the lock up problems lol same engine -- i think they were echoe ? wrong gas oil mix along with low rpm use could lead to stopped up ex port ,fouled plug or fuel filter plugged first thing i would is change the fuel lines ,, man guyes these things are cheesie for the $$$$ they cost , , i dont even want to start on the electric ones :mad: total junk just my 2 cents :thumbsup:
No warranty.I think i used the wrong oil mix by mistake.Do u think i should change the fuel lines?
If you can't turn the motor over you have far more problems then fuel lines.

remember the ole mantis tiller engines that had the lock up problems lol same engine -- i think they were echoe ?
I work for an authorized Echo service center that has been working on Echo equipment and Mantis tillers for a very very long time. I have never heard of an Echo engine having a "lock up problem" unless it was run on straight gasoline. In fact, a large majority of the Echo engines that I have seen run on straight gasoline can be salvaged with some light cylinder honing and a set of rings.
by no means dogging echo they have a great product ,, just saying i have seen alot of mantis tiller engines go bad with verry little use on them ,, faulty wrist pin bearings !!! i think the only problem echo has is not enough dealers ! i also do warranty work no the little scooters and have had on problems getting short blocks same with mantis
GOPED GOPED GOPED GOPED when r upeople gonna learn to stop buying junk from places like pepboys go to www.davesmotors.com and buy something thats worth the money that isnt gonna break in a day ive had my 1 ped for 5 years drove all the time with massive high performance parts and porting never broke
i bought a panterra scooter from pep boys(chinese built) it is really junk.the first problem i had was the charger melted in my garage outlet.(lucky not to burn down)
now the armature for the generator/starter is out of round and rubbed in the case causing the motor to bog and melt the armature.30 day warranty they wont do anything about it. my loss. never got the $100.00 rebate either. you get what you pay for.i learned my lesson and peppy boys lost a good customer.

new engine

I have a new engine\clutch if youre interested. just broken in. Im switching to a four stroke.
I have a 43cc petrol scooter, i was riding it one day and it cut out for no reason and wouldn't start, ever since when i try to start it it only fires once, if you catch it with the throtle when you pull it, and then refuses to start again. I think it might be flooding as the spark plug is soaking when i take it out but if so why is it flooding so easily after just one atempt at starting. dose anyone know whats wrong. pleas help

How to fix Panterra Scooter

Hi, Do you have the gas or electric version? We created a 200 page service manual that covers the Freedom, Fusion and Retro scooters. The information contained in the service manual is relevant to both the gas and electric.

We just included an addendum which are an additional 20 pages on information regarding the proper removal of body panels as well as service on the electric scooters.

Cost is $25 for an electronic version of the service manual sent via email. I will also include an electronic version of the consumer manual that came originally with the scooter and a parts list.

Add $5 if you want it on CD (includes shipping).

Add $30 if you'd like me to include a printed version of the service manual (includes cost of materials and shipping). This is in a convenient 3 ring binder format used by most service centers.

I accept payments thru paypal. To order send your
