Question about 2005 Kymco People S 200

Carburetor isues? 2007 kymco people 50 2 stroke

Just bought people 50 off craigslist for great price. The bike was banged up so I took the body apart and gave a fresh new paint job and new chrome. I put in a new spark plug and air filter.After all this when I start the bike it runs for a sec and dies. If I give it throttle it dies. The only way I can get the bike to stay running is to cover the air filter and manually choke. I have tried to play with the air and Idle screws but I dont know what Im doing so it is trial and error at best. At one point while adjusting the Idle srew gas started leaking out of the air filter cover where i was choking it. I want to learn to do this on my own but cannot find much info online. I was however able to download the service manual. it gives this 1º ± ohms as the setting for the air screw opening but I have no clue what this means. Help

    I have the same problem, coupled with a faint clock but its a 2005.  Sometimes I can ride it for nearly 2 miles, then it chokes and dies.

Hi, Jennifer and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
14. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
15. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
16. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
17. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
18. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
19. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
20. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
21. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
22. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
23. Check for engine trouble codes.

Descibe me please where to find serie nrs on the kymco topboy please engine,frame,enz. greetings wolf

VIN, model number, date of manufacture, and EPA information is required to be on the steering head of all motor bikes imported into the USA. If it is not there then the DMV must assume that your bike does not meet U.S. standards and was not purchased from a dealer in the U.S.
Good luck, hope this helps.

I have a Kymco People 50 brand new in May, 2011. It won't start, initially tried to turn over but now nothing happens. I checked the battery which over read 80% charged, charged it to full anyway. ...

have you checked the spark plug? take it out and lay it on the engine touching a metal part and kick the bike you should see it sparking if not then replace the spark plug
if thats not the problem then give the carb a clean and check the air filter that its not blocked

2 stroke bikes need three things to work air spark and fuel as long as you have these it will work

hope this helps

I will recomend you to clean the carburetor and change the spark plug. If the spark plug is bad it might get problems to set fire to the gas. so change it and you might get your motorcycle working again. Good Luck.

How much oil do I ideally put into a full gas tank on my 2 stroke Kymco Like 50? can you put too much?

Hi, not familiar with this bike,does it not have a separate oil tank,?, if your machine is pre mix this means you mix the correct amount of oil and fuel together as. Single form of lubrication, this way the oil gets directly to the engine parts, when the fuel,oil,and air mixture enter the engine the spark ignights it and the engine running process is started, the mixture is atomized to a form of mist, to much oil would render the mist to sticky, and seizure may occure from overheating, as would also be the case for to little oil, MY RESEARCH DOES NOT COME UP WITH A 4T 2 STROKE
