  1. I have a 150cc scooter with the GY6 clone engine. I received it in the crate and assembled it myself. When I went to start the machine it was running really rich. I then noticed gas in my oil. I changed the oil and it has not happened since. However, it still was running rich. I got a new carb from the manufacturer and when I replaced it I still have the same symptoms. When you start it up it wont idle and it blows white smoke. I put my hand over the exhaust it was covered in fuel. I have checked the machine over for any pinched lines or blocked vacuums. It sounds like a carb issue, but with the new carb on I cant believe the symptoms would be the same. Anyone have any suggestions please help.

    I was thinking the same thing. I must have received a faulty carb when I got the new one. And yes, I did check the oil and there was gas in it. Thats when I ordered a new carb. When I replaced the carb I changed the oil, obviously, and now my oil is fine, however I am still running rich. There are no other possibilities?
  5. I have a chinese 150cc scooter. It seems to be running really rich. Rich enough to have raw fuel coming out of the exaust. I have already diagnosed the carb not to be the problem. Not only did I clean it, I replaced it with a new one. I can get the bike to run, not idle, but it continues to blow white smoke and when I put my hand over the exaust it was covered in fuel:foul: . I have checked the valve clearance also, and it was okay. Anyone have any suggestions please help.

    yes they are checked cold. Im not sure the exact measurments but a good place to start would be .012 to .014" on the intake and .018 to .020" on exhuast, youll be able to hear the valves ticking if they are to loose.
