Notes About This Repair:
scooter was hard/not starting = checked the fuel system, and ignition system, then I found the compression slightly low, did a valve adjustment. got scooter to then start. however it ran poorly, Also it was smoking when you throttle up, so I installed a new carb. still not any improvement. after riding around -15 to 20 miles it got worse. double checked the valves, readjusted and test some more no improvement. — At this point I was pretty certain that the motor was starting to suffer from a bad top end.
This bike had a broken exhaust, previous to this repair. I believe that the valve train received some damage from running with a broken exhaust header pipe.
I pulled the head off and you can see from the pictures how poorly it was running.
Thanks for everything,
Hawg Scooters Savannah
