it's not a bug - it's a feature....some people would say...
- actually it happened on mine too after some time when it was new on both brake levers, that means it cannot be a short or something.
but, after some time I got used to it and even got to like it like that.

Hi, Anonymous your right-hand control housing starter button has shorted out with the front brake light switch what you need is a wiring diagram that is in the back of your service manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Vespa, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

SOURCE: VESPA 2008 LX 50.Will not

The poor performance of the engine can makes these faults to come up. we need to check from the fuel tank , check if the fuel contains impurities and specially water. If so this can come up when the tank gets empty and produce misfiring, splutter and jerks. So a check on the fuel filter will confirm this as it will be seen, if so remove and clean tank and change the filter. We then come to the carburetor as the fuel mixing is determined in this section. You need to have the carburetor removed and all ports washed and cleaned if there is traces of dirt or clogging noticed in the fuel chamber.

Secondly we need to check on the electrics. The spark intensity is most important .Remove the plug to check gap and condition of plugs. The black plug indication will confirm that the performance is bad whereas a fully fired plug without deposits must be the ideal view. Check the HT coil and the HT wires, if the intensity is bad the ignition system must be checked. DO NOT CHANGE any part without a confirmation--- trying with a replacement from another vehicle. Finally the LT trigger to the coils must be checked be it from the platinum points or an electronic ignition unit. The voltage of the trigger must be high to give the best HT output.

Finally check the Timing on the engine. Also check compression of engine since you experience starting fault.

Thank you for using Fixya

Pull the hose that goes to your carburetor from underneath the fuel tank and crank the engine for a second. You should see fuel coming out of the hose.Pull the spark plug's cap, remove the cap by turning it counterclockwise like unsrewing a bolt, and while holding it far from the edge, take the ignition coil wire's end close to the engine creating a gap of 1cm (less than an inch) and crank the engine. You should see a spark between the cable's edge and the crankcase.If all the above turn ok but you still cannot start the engine (even by replacing the spark plug with a new one) then you shoul have your compression check at a dealer.

How to decrease the exhaust sound of Vespa PX150


Hi, Saleh that all depends on your current muffler if it's a stock OEM muffler that is in excellent condition then you would have to seek the advice of a muffler expert to fabricate something for you but if it has rusted holes or has a broken baffle or you have an aftermarket performance muffler installed then a new OEM muffler would quiet down the offending noise..

Vespa engine won't start


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the 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.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

The starter dosent function when I tress the start button. No sound at all.


Don't want to sound patronising ( you may have just bought the scooter) but have you got a manual clutch ? If so you might need to pull the lever before pressing the starter.

My Vespa ET2 will not start when it's off the kickstand. Starts fine when the bike is on the kickstand. Engine cuts out when i push the bike off of the stand.


I'm not familiar with ET2s but I had a similar problem with a Vespa 100 years ago. After hours of messing about i discovered a bolt had fallen and blocked one of the air inlets on the bottom of the frame. Was fine when i kicked it but when my bum was on the saddle it kinda 'sealed' around the tank area and starved the engine of air. As i say, i don't know about new ET2s but sounds kinda similar symptoms.

WHERE CAN I FIND THE BATTERY OF THE VESPA SCOOTER


you need to tell the exact model type, eg. ET4, GT 200 as every model has the battery on another place...!

Vespa ET4 125. Elecric start doesnt always engage properly.


- did you ever push the starter button while the engine was running?
if yes, the gear on the starter motor is damaged and needs to be replaced...

Check for bad gas -- water in gas , it is likely you have left the choke on.
