Starter Motor problem

Postby mspeed810123 » Wed Apr 21, 2010 2:13 pm

I recently bought a second hand scooter and i think theres someting wrong with the electric start. The starter motor sometimes just clicks instead of spinning the motor and it takes 3 or 4 presses of the button to get the engine started. This happens when i first start the scoote on each day, but it goes well right after every ride. Is this the battery problem or? Also the scooter sometimes makes some squeaking noise when i apply the brakes (forgot which brake), not too loud but can actually hear it. Does that mean i have to replace the brakes?

My scooter has the same problem. It's not a battery problem, I've just replaced the battery and the same thing. Unfortunately, it's not just the starter motor... you'd probably be best taking it to a mechanic to look at it, but some things to check are the spark plug for a weak spark and the automatic choke unit. The brakes squeaking means the brake shoe is getting worn. Pretty sure you'll need to replace them. Hope this helps some.
