|Why won't my scooter start?
First make sure you have the proper gas and oil mixture
before trying to start scooter. This is the most common
mistake people make. Mixture should be 32:1 regardless
of what the manual says. Then you have to pump the primer
bulb on the underneath side of the carburetor. Pump until
you can see that gas has reached the carburetor. Try and
start your scooter. Don't pull the cord more than 4-5
times. If the scooter doesn't sound like it's about to
start then turn the throttle a bit while pulling the cord.
Try this 4-5 times. If you still are not started then
your carburetor may need adjusting.

|Adjusting the carburetor for
all models except the charger.
From the left side of the scooter you will see a flat
head screw toward the bottom of the carburetor. Turn this
screw all the way in or clockwise then turn it out counterclockwise
2 1/2 turns. This is the factory setting for the air mixture.
If your scooter doesn't start right up and you have gone
through the start up troubleshooting then call our tech
support at 702-889-1741.

|Why does my chain keep falling
This can be caused by a bent sprocket or the chain isn't
aligned properly. The chain can be adjusted in 2 ways.
First you want to make sure the rear tire is straight.
Just eyeball it and you should be able to tell if its
straight or not. If its not, loosen the nuts that hold
the wheel in place. Adjust the tension screws until wheel
is straight. If your chain still looks crooked then you
need to adjust the motor. To adjust the motor simply lay
the scooter on its side so you can get to the bottom of
the motor. You will see 3 screws. Loosen all 3 screws
just a little. Straighten the motor until the chain looks
straight and your chain should never fall off again.

|How do I adjust my brakes?
You will see an adjustable screw next to your brake lever.
Turn it counterclockwise until brake is how you want it.
If brake still doesn't work good enough then you need
to adjust the wire where it connects to the caliper or
drum. Loosen the nut that holds the wire. Pull the wire
tighter and tighten back the nut.
