Genuine Motorcycles - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


While I don't own a Roughhouse, I have owned a couple other Chinese made scooters. There is a very good chance the battery is located under the floorboard of the bike. I looked at a few photos of the scooter online ad it looks like there is a small door in the middle of the floorboard. I believe they like to put the batteries low on these bikes to help keep the center of gravity low.

Good luck.

Hi, Rochan91 and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely drained or faulty battery.
2. Faulty regulator/rectifier or high output coil.
3. Faulty power valve, solenoid or installation.
4. Clogged air filter or exhaust.
5. Cracked or incorrect float level.
6. Float needle is not seating.
7. Faulty reed valve.

Hi, Nameisonlytwoltrs what a strange name, by the way, nice novella. The solution to this is simple, most ignition switches for motorcycles/scooters have identifying letters stamped near their connection terminals, B/BAT/+ for power input, I/IGN for the ignition circuit, L/LT for the light circuit, A/ACC for the accessories circuit. Now if your switch has no markings you going to need a 12-volt battery, a test light, and a jumper wire with alligator clips. If your switch has 4 terminals there will be 16 different possible combinations for the process of elimination. Connect your jumper wire to the battery positive terminal and connect/hold the other end to any terminal on the switch. With your test light connected to the battery negative terminal start probing the remaining terminals with the ignition key switched to the on position and observe when the test light illuminates completing the circuit. Move the jumper wire to a different terminal and repeat the process. Keep doing this until you find the right combination that makes everything work.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

The light does not buzz, but if the system wants to warn you, it will give a warning light and a buzzer. If it comes to both it is really time you should fill oil. When the oil is low, the parts in the motor are not lubricated enough and the motor can become seriously damaged. So don't start the engine, before you filled correct and enough oil.

Usually this is caused by a leaking float valve in the carburetor. It seeps into the engine (when not running), past the piston rings, into the oil. Also you should check the float level.
