Can anyone help with setting up the mixture/idle. The scooter is quite difficult to start. Once warm it runs ok but its just starting thats a problem when its cold. Cheers.

start off with a real warm motor ;15 min running or more.
adjust the idle until the rear wheel just starts to move.

see what that does for starting the scooter.

Ok, it doesnt start very easily at all. Im gunna check the auto choke is ok. Is there any good starting point with the mix scew ? Leaner or richer as its screwed in.
