What model,size engine do we have here,50 CC scooter or more than 50 C
C ,or a motorcycle class Elite.My Elite "petcock" is engine vacuum
operated.Engine off,fuel valve off.Engine running,vacuum keeps valve
open.Look under the gas tank and see if you have one on yours.It has a
vacuum line and the fuel line.Trace them out.ORIGINAL PROBLEM---If yours
is like mine,allow engine to warm a bit ,before heading directly into
traffic.I know that is the normal operation for mine,every cold
start,and that is the way it operates.If something changes,than you may
have a problem.Till then,ride and enjoy it.Old saying here in the
Colonies,"If it ain't broke,don't try to fix it."
May your day be blessed.       N. P. J. F.

hi matthew,
sounds like a gas flow problem to me, the choking etc. clean the carb and
see what is does. do you close the gas-tap while it is 'sleeping' ? other
poss. could be a seal leak causing a bit of oil entering the cranck case
with same result.
or a leaking gas line or floatcap , than the mix what is in the gas line and
carb could drip in the cilinder while a sleep over riching the mixture after
start.
about the long winter sleep, make sure no moist can enter the gas tank, best
way to do so is keeping it full of rich mix gas. if the storage is dry by
nature you can drain the gas tank to prevent unwanted gas fumes.

 Hi All,
My honda Elite, once started after being off for a number of hours
(overnight or even my 8-9hr work day), chokes and sputters for about 30
seconds or until I get it to about 25-30mph then it sounds great and works
fine. It's a little frightening as those 30 seconds are ususally the
moments when I'm turning on to the buisy street near my house.I took it to
the place where I bought it and they told me it was possibly a fouled
plug,
 which they replaced, but the problem persists. Any ideas?
Also, what is the best way to store my scooter for the winter? I've heard
very mixed advice from leaving it with a full tank of gas to emptying it
completely. Any other suggestions? It will be covered with a nylon moped
cover and placed inside an enclosed shed.
-Matt
