First check to ensure the batter has held the charge you put into it. Just plugging the charger in does not mean the battery is holding the charge. If the battery is bad, it will drain as fast as you put it in. if the batter holds a charge, should be able to disconnect the charger and battery will show charge. if so, you have a bad connection or motor.

SOURCE: Scooter won't start with electric

  1. Try depressing the brake handle when starting.
  2. The battery has not been charged.
  3. The battery is hooked up wrong. This is often the reason for blown fuses.
  4. There isn't enough gas or two-stroke oil in the scooter.
  5. There is a gas flow problem, especially on the Euro Scooter or Yamaha models.
  6. The spark plug wire is not connected.
  7. A low battery or bad relay can cause the scooter to only start by using the kick starter.
  8. There is no spark to the spark plug. The coil is bad and needs to be replaced.
  9. Turn the key to the "on" position.
You need to check for a spark. There are a few ways to do this. The easiest way is to remove the spark plug and put it back in the spark plug cap. Then ground it to the engine - you should be able to lay it against a non-painted portion of the engine. Make sure there is good metal-to-metal contact. In a semi darkened area, attempt to start the scooter. You should see a definite spark at the tip of the spark plug. It's hard to see in direct light. If the color of the spark is blue, that means it's a strong spark. A white color is less strong, and a yellow color is weak. Most scooter starting systems are a bit weak (compared to cars). Even a yellow spark should start your scooter just fine.
The spark must occur at the right time. Just about all scooters made since around 1980 have an electronic ignition. These systems can rarely be set. In general, the spark occurs just before the piston reaches the top of it's stroke. There is a slight delay between the spark plug fire and the fuel-air mixture ignition. That's why the spark occurs a little early. Most ignition systems have an advance unit build in. As the engine speeds up, the time of the spark retards a little bit. This helps the engine fire the mixture at the proper time

There are a lot of tiny fuel and air passageways in the carburetor that must be kept clean it order for your scooter to run right. Carefully, take the carburetor apart. This can be relative easy (on a 50cc scooter). The carb has tiny passages that can get gummed up. Your scooter will not run correctly if the carburetor isn't completely clean, so take your time. I use a gallon container of carb dip (you can get a gallon at your local auto supply store).
First, remove all of the rubber and gaskets or they will get damaged. After a 20 minute soaking in carb dip, I blow out the carb with compressed air. You have to get all the jets and the passageways clean. Be sure the jets are clear, especially the starter jet. Sometimes carb cleaner won't clear out these tiny jets. Use a guitar or a piano string, a strand of copper electrical wire, or a tiny drill bit pin vise. Be sure not to increase the size of the hole in the starter jet or you'll change the tuning. Carefully reassemble everything, checking for cracks in the rubber carb boots and the gaskets. Replace them if they are old and cracked. Be sure and remove all rubber and gasket material first or they could get ruined. Spray carb cleaner also works if you're diligent.
If you have an electric choke, check it to make sure it works. Check the resistance between the wires - you should see around 10 ohms or less. Measure the length of the choke assembly. Remove the choke from the carb and plug the wires into a 12V source for 15 minutes. The choke body should be warm. Measure the length again - it should increase by around 1/8".
Next, consider whether your exhaust pipe is clogged. This is especially a problem with older two stroke scooters. The unburned fuel/oil mixture builds up in the exhaust pipe along with carbon over time. If the exhaust pipe is clogged, your scooter will run terribly or not at all. It can be difficult to tell if the exhaust pipe is clogged. The easiest way to tell is to remove it and try starting your scooter. It will be a bit loud - two strokes will sound like a chain saw. If it runs with the exhaust pipe off, you know that is the problem

hope this helps

SOURCE: BIKE WON'T STAY RUNNING AFTER JUMPER CABLES ARE TAKEN OFF....

Sounds like the battery may be either low or shot. Place it on a trickle charger overnite to see if it will take a charge. Once you get the bike to run without needing jumper cables to keep it running, check the charging system. Easiest way to do this is to get a battery voltage reading with a multi meter before starting the bike. After the bike is running, place the meter leads on the battery and work the throttle to get the revs up to about 2000. Meter reading should be somewhere around 13.8 to 14.2 voltsDC. It not close to these readings, you have a charging system problem.

Sounds like your stator is shot. That usually happens when you run it with a dead battery. Stator over works

How to extend the battery life of Razor Scooter Batteries


You can extend the life of your scooter's battery if you take proper care of it. Most people report trouble in getting more than a year or two out of their razor scooter battery set. This is actually a common problem with vehicle batteries.

  • Keep your battery charged
It is recommended to keep your battery fully charged to avoid the build-up of sulfate-ion inside it. Sulfate-ion accumulates when the battery is in a discharged state for a long time.This is the most common reason of premature depletion of lead acid batteries. This can be easily avoided if the scooter battery is kept in a constantly charged state.

  • Charge you Razor Scooter Battery during the Off-Season
Even if not used Sealed Lead Acid Batteries will self discharge over long periods. This will leave the battery in a not fully charges state which will enable the sulfate-ions to build up inside the internal plates which will slowly deplete the battery's capacity. In order to prevent that, you should charge the razor scooter battery at least once every three months when it is not in service.

  • Use a Battery Tender
Battery Tender chargers are a great way extend the life of your SLA batteries as they are designed to fully charge and maintain a battery at proper storage voltage without the damaging effects caused by trickle chargers.

Just bought one of these and it seems like it doesn't hold a charge it goes pretty good and thanafter 15 mins so slow??


Battery powered vehicles like scooters and golf carts have trouble going up hill because smaller electric engines aren't powerful enough or made for nothing more than flat land. You could have a bad battery or the battery isn't being charged enough. I know someone that has a golfcart and it takes approximately 48 hours to charge full. You may want to check the manual about charging times.

Charge the batteries. If still no power than replace the batteries because they are dead. The batteries in the scooter need to be kept charged. If the scooter has not been charge in two weeks to a month and over. They are probably dead and need replacing. Find replacements at razor.com

E20 razor rocket electric scooter will not charge and someone said you need to insert a fuse but it doesnt tell you were or how. i have only purchased this as a christmas present for my daughter but it...


If it is a fuse problem then try looking for a fuse box in the controller or charger. If not then take it back, unless stated in the manual that you need to enter a fuse before it will charge, the scooter should charge right out the box.

Another thing you might want to try is to turn the scooter off before charging.

Razor e200 runs slow


This could be a sign of a dying battery, although it charges and lights the green light it cannot maintain enough juice to power the machine when it has weight on it.
