Piaggio Ciao shuts off from time to time.

Postby simmisj » Tue Oct 09, 2012 3:20 pm

Hi.
I am new to mopeds and just bought an old Piaggio Ciao.
I have been driving it for about two months now and two weeks ago it started to shut off in the middle of a ride. Typical ride: I start it in the morning to go to school, I drive it nicely/slowly and eventually get to school. I stay there for between 4 and 8 hours. Then I start it again to go home, I drive it nicely/slowly and eventually get home.
Sometimes in the middle of a ride it simply stops firing and stops. Then I wait for some minutes and start peddaling again to start it and it works.

Also a very wierd thing, I bought a new air filter. After I changed it, the moped did not want to put any power from the motor to the wheel. I changed it back to the old one and it worked like before. Very wierd. Maybe someone can comment on that.

Thanks guys/girls
