Chinese Scooter Assembly
Examine your Scooter shipment
Before you accept the shipment, you must make sure that your Scooter has not been damaged during shipping. You should inspect the box for any tears or oil stain. Sometimes the shipping company may place heavy items on top of these Scooter and bend the crate, which in turn may damage your Scooter. If you suspect your Scooter has been damaged during shipping you should make sure that the driver signs the damage on the bill of lading. It is important that you note the damage on the bill of lading as shipping companies only reimburse you or the shipper for the damaged incurred during shipping if the driver sign it before they hand the Scooter to you. Here at Power Dirt Bikes, we use only the best shipping companies to ship our products and inspects every shipment before it is sent out.

What to do first?
How to adjust Carburetor?
The small gold spring screw on the side of the carburetor is the idle speed screw. This screw controls the idle speed, the tip should extend about an 1/8 of an inch (4 mm). Adjust it so the engine will idle at a fast-enough speed to stay running.
The brass color screw located below on the side of the carburetor, next to the choke lever is for the fuel and air mixture. Start by turning this screw (clockwise) until it stops. Don't turn it in tight, just until it stops. Next, turn the screw out two full turns (counter-clockwise). This is the factory setting. You should be able to start and operate the scooter with this setting. Once you have it running, you can adjust it. Never turn the screw more than 1/8 of a turn at a time. Turning it in too much will cause the motor to run lean at full speed and may burn a piston. Also, running too lean will cause a loss of low-end power. Once you get the mixture set you can adjust the idle, it should be low enough that the engine doesn't vibrate. Finally, make sure you have the choke lever down completely after the scooter is started and warmed up.
There is also a main jet adjustment screw dead center on the top of the carburetor. This is frequently set at 1 full turn out. If this is not adjusted correctly, your scooter may not run or run very poorly. Once again, turn the screw all the way in (clockwise) and then out (counter-clockwise) 360 degrees (1 full turn).
