Hi George - I just now pulled up your post ad I know what you are going through . I have been suffering from diviticulitus for the last 15 months and I have great sympathy for your Dad . I am 87 and was told I am too old for surgery so I took matters into my own hands and started self help I started taking lots of fibre and vegs and have been able to get the problem under control. I know it is too late for your Dad ,but keep on praying and he still can pull through this. If he can pull through there is a very good chance he will be able to live a normal life.. Keep thinking positive thoughts and don't lose HOPE . All the best to you and your DAD. Crawdad 27
I was 83 when I finally got around to get interested in scooters .Buying my first scoot and putting it together and doing the DDI was the best investment I ever made .Chinese it was and I never had a bit of trouble with it except I couldn't keep my balance on it. so I sold it with 10 miles on it and bought a Q6 Trike .That made a new life for this old codger.It ran like a charm and never a problem . I spent hours puttering with it and as I didn't get a licence for it I ran it around my neighborhood only. As I was planning to move I had to sell it and ran it on Craigs list here in my town ,got a few inquiries but not takers ,so I ran it in Vancouver Wash and in about three days I had a buyer . The buyer didn't care if it was Chinese as it ran like a charm and was the prittiest Burgandy and Black and looked great ! You will never convince me that these Chinese scoots and trikes are't any good ! As far as I am concerned you can't beat then Easy on the pocket book , reliable if you keep them up and a pleasure to own . I sold mine four months ago and I still miss seeing her parked in my garage ,but there comes a time in life when you need to slow down and my time has come .I am just sorry that I didn't get my Trike 20 years ago . I sure have missed a lot of good riding !
Well I''m back --- Installed a new spark plug today (still don't know why this plug is different from the spec plug ,anyway it is installed .I also switch the gas and return lines as they were in backwards . Put gas in and tried to start but nothing ! I will check the plug for spark tomorrow .Carburetor seems OK from the outside .It is clean and there are no leaks in the gas lines or around the carb. I put a little oil through the plug hole and let it sit overnight without the plug in it pulls OK , but once I put the plug back it is a hard pull. I watch on You Tube and they all seem to pull real easy .There is compression .If no spark what do I check next? These don't have a magneto do they ? I don't see anything on the specs lay out. I cleans up the air filter and filter and lightly oiled it .the red switch is tight and works OK.I used the rubber button and it is OK also and has no cracks and is easy to push on ,not stiff. There is a screen missing from in the air filter area that I am going to replace tomorrow ,but that shouldn't have anything to do with not starting. I looks like a simple motor so what ever the problem is it should be easy to figure out except I haven't been able to that yet. Do you have any more ideas . I have your information on the carburetor and I will adjust it but I was going to wait until I got it started but if you think I should do it now ,that's Ok . Would you suggest that it start from scratch on it ,like a new carb as if I can't get it running I really can't do a tune up to it . Let me know OK ?? alleyoop started a post earlier but hadn't finished when I hit the wrong button so disregard it! alleyoop

alleyoop Thanks Al - Haven't got it started yet as one thing the spark was not the one for the motor and I had a hard time find Inga one to match the original one .Have done that now and I find that the gas lines are installed in the wrong holes intake has to be in the top hole I understand so have to take lines out and reverse as the filter is hooked to return line . I tried to start today with new plug but re reaction ,so I will change lines and try again. I sold my trike last week .Sure hated to let it go but I would have to licensed etc and that would be $184.00 and then I doubt if I would be out in traffic that much Age is catching up on me ! Thanks again if I have any more problems I will be in touch Verne
Hey Guys I haven't been on for a while but now I need some advice . I recently got a Goped Sport 29cc on E Bay and here is what I found According to the seller the scooter was in good shape .Had upgraded the exhaust,handle bars and installed a new carburetor . On inspection I found No filter on gas line ,Starter rope housing had one piece broken off, the welded tube that the kick stand was connected to was damaged .some part on the exhaust is missing ,and there is a part of the filter screen behind the carb that is missing .The first problem I found was when I ordered some parts to fix up the motor I find that the new plug that came is too large for the plug hole and on contacting the dealer they don't have a answer as yet. One thing I noticed was that there is what seems to be a size reducer ring in the plug hole that fits the existing plug but is too small for the plug that is listed should be there. I have tried to start the motor but there is nothing and the pull seems harder then it should be. The overall appearance of the scoot seems pretty good but I would doubt if it has been ridden in a long time .One clue was the gas tank was BONE dry which would indicate to me that it was not used for some time before it was sent to me . I don't have any history that came with the machine so I am kind of in the dark and could use some advice. This Goped is listed as using a Zenoah G430 RC or (G43LS ) motor 41.5 cc motor 29cc 2 cycle with compression of 7.5 and 2.5 HP .Walbro carburetor . I am using 30:1 ratio gas and oil according to the seller and spark plug is NGK CMR 7A 9specs call for a ( NKG BPM7A) he plug end is black and carb seems to get gas OK .Bulb fills up and return is working OK Bought parts from Goped .com for first time as I figured they would be more familiar with this model. Any one out there have got one of these Gopeds ? I could use some advice Thanks Crawdad 27
There sure seem to be a lot of problems with Chinese . . Are they possibly all made by the same manufacturer? I have bought 2 scooters made by the same Chinese manufacturer and neither one had any serious problems . Possibly mine will pick up problems later with miles on them ,but on the initial arrival and PDI .problems are minimal .
I have 2013 Q6 Trike and the only thing I have found wrong was the rear brake assembly was attached a little off causing the left turn to be a little short .I readjusted the brake handle assembly and fixed the problem . I checked the trike over carefully with the PDI and everything seemed to be done in a professional way .Welds were good ,no rust and nothing loose. The only negative thing is that it takes time to remove all the bolts holding the under seat container so it can be removed . I am very satisfied with the assembly .
Hey Dave you need a Q6 ,it already has a trailer hitch attached .and I have seen small trailer on web sites on the internet ,can't remember where but I saw one ad just last week ,looked small and had good tires on it .
I rode my Xingyue 150 for seven years, and did a lot of mods. I found the exhausts and their mounts vary SO much on these that it's basically not possible to determine if a given exhaust will bolt onto a given scooter. They are all similar, but have many different mounting setups.
I'd recommend you choose the exhaust you like, and plan on making at least some simple mounts from aluminum bar-stock, or similar material. It's NOT hard, and you can get the setup at the exact angle, length, etc you want.
Here's a setup I put on my GY6 for an example.
I did not want to use the factory header which is SMALLER than the exhaust-port. So I got a used generator header and cut it off, extending it with RV flex-exhaust tubing to muffler. You CAN buy ready-made full-diameter headers however, often WITH a hi-perf muffler.
I found the larger header made MORE difference than the muffler itself. Don't be too concerned about making your own mounts. It's not difficult. I even used the original factory muffler clamps on the tapered 2-stroke style can simply by bending and cutting. No tools needed except a vice, large Crescent wrench and a hammer.
Hope this info may help,
Leo in Texas
PS: The reason I went with a 2-stroke-type expansion/contraction-chamber (this one was for a 50cc 2-stroke, if I recall) is that the expansion portion works very well on a 4-stroke. No "supercharging" effect like on a 2-cycle, BUT better scavenging than even a straight-pipe on 4-cycle. They WORK!
Hey Leo -Looks like you did a good job! I have a question for you -My muffler is pretty loud on my 1P 39 QMB 50cc trike without going through a lot of work is there any muffler or any way I could cut down on the noise . The one on it now is factory equipped.
My 50cc trike has shown up with very excessive noise by the throttle arm .It rattles constantly when running unless I hold on to it. I have adjusted for side play and that seems OK but the end play (back and forth )is constant. Any suggestions on a fix ,doesn't seem to be a problem but is irritating to have loud rattling when in idle .
Hi try ebay scooter parts .Seller is called wm59 . He has some manuals for Chinese scooters. I got one Called Scooter Repair & Service Manual 4 Stroke 50cc engines. It has ALL the information on the 139 QMB engines .He has others also .
