After coming home from work late at night my scooter often stalls at traffic lights and junctions etc. I thought it was the valves but then realized that because my scoot has been sat in the rain for days that water had caused the stalling.
So if you have this problem I.E
* Scooter stalling and then dieing when restarting and applying revs*
* Not starting*
and it's been in the rain then it is most likely damp causing this. After talking to a few bikers the best product to solve damp was this.
WD 40 - Tadahhh.l
Cheap and cheerful old faithful oil. It also solves damp as it creates a layer between the object and the elements. Spray it on all vital parts. Starter motor etc and hopefully this will work if not then it is your valves.
This is my first maintenance guide tip thingy so don't 'diss' me that much!
Should I be glad because we are friends, or sad because that's all we will ever be?
No reason to recieve 'diss' from any one, lots of newbies to scoots and perhaps not-so-newbies will be glad of the advise, thanks to your effort. By the way WD stands for Water Dispersant, the 40 is for either the trial times to get the recipe right, or the number of times it took to get it marketed, cant quite remember. It has nothing to do with 'War Dept' as a lot of people think.
