Hey guys i am trying to take the belt cover (kick start cover) off of my scooter. I took all the screws out and it wont come off. It feels like there is something else holding it on from the inside. Has any one ever taken one of these apart??? i really need some help on this if any one can point me in the right direction that would be great!
Heres the scooter info
2006 MT50QT-2 Engine reads - MT139QMB The scooter has 12'' rims The belt cover says RSM on it my vin # is LXKTCB0266M860285 It was sold by Red Streak Motors
You sure you got the bolt in the very center of the cover? Sorry if that seems like a dumb suggestion, but I've seen people miss that one because it's behind the kick start lever and they don't notice it.
If the cover has never been off before, you may wanna give it some light taps with a mallet to kinda "break the seal".

Whack the cover with a rubber hammer on the back to break the seal. If the gasket rips it's no biggie. Just peel off any loose pieces and install the cover back on there. It'll be fine. You do not have to remove the kick lever on a 50cc 139QMB to get the cover off.

kevin55950: I had a koso Sunworld (low quality) and I needed 2 to make one. Cheaper to buy a good one first

raelhi: how do you remove the bushings on the mounting bracket?
Nov 24, 2013 20:40:57 GMT -5
90GTVert: Sometimes you can use a bolt, nut, washer, and socket to remove bushings. Put the bolt through a nut that is small enough to pass through with the bushing, so bushing diameter or just smaller. Put that through the bushing. On the other side, put a socket..

90GTVert: large enough for the bushing to pass into it, but able to line up with the mount so it has something to be pulled against. Then you'll prob want a washer on the end of the socket nearest the end of the bolt. Then a nut. Tighten and it should pull out.

90GTVert: Pay close attention as you do it so nothing gets crooked and you don't damage anything. Bolt and nut could actually be on either side, could use a threaded rod and 2 nuts instead of a bolt. As long as it's all braced it can only pull one way.

twowheelinjim: I've really grown to appreciate these scooters. They respond like a furry pet when given some attention. And, when neglected, they let you know... I've already run into the classic hard starting issues. It is usually caused by a component

twowheelinjim: like oldsman stated. My 50cc scooter liked the throttle cranked several times allowing the accelerator pump to squirt a bit of fuel into the intake and she started right up. That's how I prime my old Harley. I bet the two bikes were having a chat one night

twowheelinjim: and that's where the scooter picked up this habit.

90GTVert: My Tritons are both a few years older, but they're BA20D. I assume the newer are the same.
