Roketa 110cc Engine KnowledgeI've been a mechanic for 40 years, and I know most engines have characteristics that make each one unique, and some can even be difficult. The Rocketa 110cc Go-Kart I worked on wasn't starting, so I called JR for advice. He ran down all the usual troubleshooting, and then came up with just a small… View All

Step 3: Put unleaded gas into scooter (premium gas recommended). Note: Make sure you have the fuel line connected to the carburetor. It is located on the left side of the bike underneath the seat. There is a compartment that exposes the carburetor and what you are looking for will be either a brass nub 3/4 of an inch long or a hollow nub. You may not see it, however, you should be able to feel it if you are standing on the left side of the bike.
Step 4: Kick start scooter 6-7 times to build compression. Note: Do not pull on throttle or it will flood the carburetor.
Step 5: Now use the electric start (hold in rear left brake lever and press button on right that looks like lightening bolt). Hold for 3-4 seconds. Note: Do not hold it in any longer than 5 seconds at a time or you will burn the starter.
Step 6: Repeat sequence 6-7 times.
Step 7: Once started, adjust idle speed if needed. Note: To adjust idle lift up seat and in engine compartment on the top towards the farthest side of the carburetor, is a Gold Phillip screw attached onto a spring. Turn clockwise until it is set to your preference.

We have been selling atv's for 20 years and in that time we have only sold 2 50cc atv's. The reason is that the child quickly learns how to ride the atv and can't even climb out of a gutter on the sidewalk. The 90 cc and the 110 cc sell more to young riders. All of our 90cc up to 300cc atv’s have a safety throttle governor. This device is all well and good if the child doesn't listen. The important thing to understand is its all about training. The more time you spend training your child the more pleasure they will have with the ATV and the happier you will be with your purchase.
By training we mean the following:
1. Practice stopping and starting and make games out of it, like stopping on a line with the rear wheels touching and stopping on the line with the front wheels touching. spread out the lines until they have a football field of distance between lines.
2. Making a circular track. This will make your child slow down automatically around corners instead of you telling them to slow down.
Remember if you tell them they will not listen. If you make a game out of it they will learn control on their own terms.
