Look for vacuum leaks in hoses and gaskets. If you feel comfortable I would remove it and rebuilt it. Could be the float is sinking because it has a hole in it. Parts are relatively cheap but hard to spec out. Should have a number on the carb body that the shop will want in order to find the parts. May be a number on the bike, not the model number. Check the book if you have it or ask a shop where it would be. Do not use wire to clean out ports!. I use brake cleaner (green can).

You need a new battery installed and have it at a full charge. If you needing to jump start it then the battery that is in it has gone bad. When you have the jumpers on all you are doing is giving it enough to turn it over a couple time that is why you need a new battery.

Please advise going price on a 2nd hand Kymco 500 scooter
Arriving at a fair price for any secondhand vehicle is very difficult and many variables should be considered though in the final analysis anything is only worth what the market will pay - if the seller asks too much the buyer will walk away.
There are many publications providing guide prices for all manner of vehicles - but these are only a guide and some models tend to command higher prices because of a good reputation while other models with a reputation for trouble or high running costs can fall far below.
No vehicle should be bought without a thorough inspection and price adjustments made for faults found and any pending work, taking due consideration of fair wear and tear.
A service history is important but will affect the price only if it can be fully verified by the presence of official invoices and a vehicle should only reach the guide price if the literature pack, the full complement of keys, tools, accessories, etc. is present. The replacement cost of some of the modern keys can be eye-watering so it is important to think ahead.
The presence of local dealer expertise and a spares service is worth a little extra and the absence of a local dealer drives the price down a little.
I hope this helps...
