This video shows the removal of the PAIR system that introduces air into the exhaust stream on a GY6 50 powered Chinese scooter ( Tao Tao ATM50-A1 ). There really isn't a performance benefit if the system is functioning properly, and some believe removal of this system can lead to clogging of the catalytic converter. PAIR systems and the air they move into the exhaust stream could be detrimental to the accuracy of user-installed exhaust mounted metering systems.

Information about piston to valve (P2V) clearance. What is P2V clearance? What affects it? How can piston to valve clearance be changed? The information in this video is relevant to many four-stroke engines, with specifications intended for small engines like scooters and motorcycles. Larger engines, like V8s will generally use larger clearances, for example 0.080" intake and 0.100" exhaust, but the other information should be useful for most applications. Thanks for watching!

This happened to me yesterday. I had numerous ideas before I made it home. I'm posting the clip so you can see if you can guess what it was (solution at the end) and so people can hear and see what happens just in case it's of use or ever happens to you. ***Spoiler Alert*** The sounds heard are commonly telltale signs of a fuel delivery issue. The "waaa" sound is usually a lean condition. In addition to what's seen in the video, check things like petcock operation, float height, fuel line routing, carburetor jetting/adjustments, airbox/filter condition, vacuum hoses and connections. Four-strokes don't suffer them much, but the first scene is somewhat similar to a soft seize. Sometimes the engine just stops, other times it dies slowly. The engine usually starts after being off for a short period of time. These are caused by the piston expanding more than the bore and seizing up. Usually from improper jetting (lean) because of the heat the piston is subjected to. Some engines will do this quickly if WOT is used before the rest of the engine gets up to operating temp. Scuffing or scarring of the piston and cylinder bore at 4 corners is a common result of a soft seize. Keep those ideas in mind and if your scooter ever does something similar, maybe it'll help you diagnose and fix it a little easier.

How to check the resistance and voltage output of the pickup or pulse coil and the exciter coil with a multimeter. These test are useful for no-start / no spark troubleshooting. The pickup coil checks should apply to AC or DC CDI ignition systems on scooters, ATVs, and go karts. DC CDI systems use battery power rather than AC power from an exciter coil in the stator so the exciter coil check does not apply for models using DC ignition systems. I've never seen official specifications published for checking AC output, so these are numbers that usually work for me. Resistance values are from service manuals and you can find them at 49ccScoot.Com or by using your favorite search engine. Please Like, Favorite, and Subscribe for more if this video was helpful.
