Motor Runs But Scooter Does Not Move
Inspect The Power Transmission System
Inspect the power transmission system for missing parts and proper operation. Replace any missing, worn-out, or damaged parts. Power transmission problems can be caused by a worn-out rear wheel freewheel clutch, a damaged or missing belt or chain, or a damaged or missing belt cog or chain sprocket.
Make Sure The Chain Or Belt Is Properly Installed
Inspect the chain or belt to make sure that it is properly installed onto both the motor sprocket or cog and the rear wheel sprocket or cog.
Motor And Chain/Belt Spin, But Rear Wheel Does Not Move
If the motor and chain or belt spin when the throttle is applied but the rear wheel does not move the problem is a defective rear wheel freewheel clutch mechanism.
Motor Spins, But Chain/Belt And Rear Wheel Do Not Move
If the motor spins when the throttle is applied but the chain or belt and rear wheel do not move the problem is either a chain or belt that has fallen off, a belt that is not properly tensioned, or a sprocket or cog that is damaged, missing, or not properly attached to the motor's shaft.
