Free Scooter is Gone
« on: 08/15/18 10:14AM »
Update: She gone! thank you!


Yup, it's free. Putting in the free section on Craig's to see what kinds of freaks show up, so I figured I'd post it for you freaks as well.

This is a Kymco 150, circa 2009 or so. It was a pit bike at my old job that sort of followed me to my current job.
It ran, then was parked for a few months. It clicked when you hit the start button, and had a hard time starting on the kick starter. I cleaned the carb, replaced both the starter solenoid and the starter, gave the battery a good charge, and it still just clicks. Stumbles on the kick starter.

I'm tired of dealing with it. It's rough looking from being pushed around in race trailers, not title, no license. Good for parts, I guess.

It's in Rancho Santa Margarita at my office if anyone is interested.

I was kidding. Got all the bodywork off and I'm going through it.  Starter just clicks and sometimes calling it names and kicking it works.   Next time I'll try the kickstarter :)  Gonna find some wiring and hose diagrams and see how far that gets me unless there's some scooter experts who want to give me advice haha

Highly technical; spray wiring with WD 40, wait and hour, try again.

WD-40® literally stands for Water Displacement, 40th formula. That's the name straight out of the lab book used by the chemist who developed the product back in 1953. The chemist, Norm Larsen, was attempting to concoct a formula to prevent corrosion—a task which is done by displacing water. Norm's persistence paid off when he perfected the formula on his 40th try.
