It is a 2 stroke and this means that oil is mixed with the petrol to be burnt in the combustion chamber. If the engine runs without popping and *******, you shouldn't worry about it.

Hi, Mr Juergen,

From your explanation, it is clear the problem is on your jetting system i.e. the main jet on your carbureter.
When in idle the main jet is not in use but pilot jet. While you increase the RPM the main jet has the main role to accelerate the RPM/speed.
You can try re-clean again the main jet nozzle on your bike and let's see what happening.

Please note : over time your main jet can be deteroirated and if this is happen you may need to get new carbureter kit. It contains jettings, seals, o-ring etc.

Best luck.

Put your battery on a charger. It is low in amps and the starter is robbing power that is needed for the spark.

you can also clean the carburetor and choke assembly.

Try Walmart- they list numerous batteries for Piaggo fly. what size is the scooter?

Piaggio... | Answered on Apr 18, 2019


There should be a mechanical release fitted. Insert your ignition key. Push the key away from you, further into the key hole. While pushing the key turn it counter clockwise, the wrong way. The seat should 'pop' open.
