Hi, Leeramsey3 after you disconnect the battery, remove the starter solenoid cap and break away the contact plate from the shoes and clean/dress all electrical arc residue. In order to diagnose the starter circuit, you must start with a fully charged battery, 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a proper load test if necessary. The battery cables and terminals must be clean and tight. The "NEGATIVE" cable is famous for corroding and or breaking inside the harness, check the connectors at both ends. Check your starter relay with a test light for continuity, it could be faulty due to corrosion and sticking in a closed configuration, another claim to fame. Finally, there is the starter solenoid, low battery voltage or faulty battery connections will cause extremely high amperage at the plate and contact shoes and rob the hold in coils of much-needed voltage. In extreme cases, the solenoid plunger plate will literally weld itself to the contact shoes, keeping the circuit closed and thus permanent engagement. Another scenario is unacceptable voltage drop to the starter solenoid from the ignition switch to the starter relay to the starter button, and finally to the solenoid. Remove the green wire from the starter solenoid and hook up the positive lead of your voltmeter to the green wire connector and ground the negative lead. Turn on the ignition switch and depress starter button, the voltage reading should be no more than .5 volt less than the battery voltage. If it is more than .5 volt you need to backtrack that part of the circuit with your voltmeter until you find the voltage robbing offender. Next, remove the 3 screws that secure the solenoid cover and remove the plunger, dress the plate and the contact shoes of arching residue and make sure the contact shoes are tight and secure. If you have done all of the above, replace the green starter button wire, hook up your voltmeter to the battery and check the voltage drop when you start the engine, anything below 9 volts could indicate a faulty battery and a proper load test should be performed.

is this a 2 stroke scooter? if it is, try to premix your gasoline. and try to test it. if it works, then your autolube has a problem. if it is a 4 stroke. try to check your coil. and try borrowing another coil and test it.

Check the fuse panel to ascertain "no power" because a fuse had blown. If fuses are OK, use an ohm meter (multi-tester) to ascertain there's zero resistance between the ground wire and a nearby nut, bolt, or metal surface. If ground wire is OK, change setting on multi-tester to 15 DC volts and touch each wire (while black probe is well grounded) to ascertain there's power when the ignition key is "on." If power wire and ground wire is OK, then more likely, the clock is a factory defect. It be cheaper to wear a wrist watch than to replace the clock. You can also get an LCD stick-on clock to attach to your moped instead of spending $$ to replace a non-critical component.

check voltage coming out of low beam side of if there isn't any,you got a bad switch,replace switch.

Probably the regulator is faulty and leaking the battery power away.

Been using before a scooter, Preferably changing the belt is actually depends on how you use your bike everyday i.e, you use it to go to work or use it as a utility vehicle. If you are just using the bike just to go to work I can say that you change the belt when it reaches 6 to 8 months, and if you are using it as a utility vehicle and carries a lot of loads everyday my advise is change it every after 2 to 3 months just to make sure.

Cheers . . .

Please check your ignition and fueling system for malfunction.

Engineers make a living using the manual they have had to purchase. There is not a fat chance of finding one on line from a reputable source.
If you find one, please let everyone else know where it came from.
Thank you.

if your charger has a 'start' function on it ( it will say this in writing on the charger itself ), then you should be ok to start the bike using it. but if it is just a standard charger then do not try it -- it could damage the charger. as far as removing the battery from the bike to charge it ( wires to short ),, try and loosen the wires and remove the wires from the battery and then remove the battery and charge it. if this is not possible -- then at least try and remove the negative cable from the battery and then charge the battery in the bike. the next thing to try is to just use a cars battery to jump the bike and get it started,, once it is started - use a volt meter and test to make sure the battery is being charged by the bike. there is also a chance that the battery needs to be replaced.
