SOOOO IM NEW TO SCOOTERS I JUST GOTTA WOLF BRAND V50 ITS USED, THE SCOOTER HAS IDLE PROBLEMS AND THE LIGHTS DIM AT A LOW REV.
NOW SOMEONE RECENTLY KNOCKED IT OVER AND IT WAS LAYING DOWN SPILLING GASS AND SOME KINDA RUSTY LIQUID NOW ITS REALLY RUNNING BAD IM TAKING IT TO A SHOP TO GET OVER HAULED. MY QUESTION IS WHAT IS THE FIRST THING I SHOULD UPGRADE ON MY SCOOTER AFTER ITS FIXED
I WANT A LITTLE MORE GET UP AND GO BUT I DONT WANNA EXPLODE LOL.
The lights dimming at low revs is totally normal with most scooters. Typically, the lights are powered by AC from the stator. When the engine is at low RPM, the stator isn't putting out a lot of power so the lights may dim till RPM increases and more power is generated. They can be wired to DC (battery) power so they don't dim, but that can create charging issues. The good thing about AC lights is that they only use what the stator can supply at the time, rather than discharging the battery to operate 100% at idle. You may be able to up the idle speed a little if it bugs you.
A big bore kit is going to be the best power for your money. 47mm bore kits are a bit easier on the engine than the larger bores. There's a bit of info in the 139QMB section of the FAQ. www.49ccscoot.com/faq/faq.html

47mm bbk, a9 cam, bump the timing with a cdi or 90s pickup mod, then you can take the restrictor out of your stock air box and maybe the outter snorkle with a modified exhaust with a carb rejet.if you shop around you can do all this for under $100 if you can turn the wrenches yourself.

YES THANK YALL I NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET SHOUT OUT TO THE GUYS HOLDING IT DOWN. IM MAKING A NOTE OF YOUR ADVICE I ALWAYS SHOP AROUND BUT I DONT HAVE ANY TOOLS AND I HAVE NO OWNERS MANUAL SO I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO GET TO CERTAIN AREAS ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO TAKE OFF THE FAIRINGS OR WHAT TOOLS I NEED TO COLLECT? THANKS FAM
You only need pretty basic tools aside from feeler gauges. A torque wrench is nice, but plenty of people do BBKs without them. To tune the CVT, you'll need and impact or a method of holding the variator and clutch bell. There's some general tool info in the first link below.
I haven't taken the panels off of that body style, but generally it requires just a phillips screwdriver and maybe 8 or 10mm socket, extension, and ratchet. Take your time and you can figure it out. You just need to examine things to figure out the order (what's on top of what). Many models begin with taking the seat bucket out if you're working on the rear section. Don't force things because it's easy to break tabs. If it doesn't come out fairly easy, look it over again and see what you've missed.

I like to add some style for my cry for help lol ill see what I can do about those tools and I'm really thinking about replacing the clutch and belt soon to avoid any damage to the engine its skipping on the clutch and it seems to be running good except for the clutch should can I even wait to replace it?
If you plan to keep the scooter for a while, it will likely pay off in the long run to learn to service it yourself (properly) if you feel confident in your ability. It's hard to say you should or should not do it for certain, as some are more or less mechanically inclined. I'd advise watching the vids above and the one below and seeing for yourself if it looks do-able to you.

MY FRONT BLINKERS ARE MISSING OH NOOOZZZ! NOW WHEN I GOT MY SCOOT SCOOT SHE DIDNT HAVE THE FRONT BLINK ASSEMBLY NOW MY QUESTION IS SHOULD IT BE CONNECTED TO AVOID ANY ISSUES WITH THE ELECTRICAL OR DO YOU THINK IT WILL BE OK?
If your missing the front turn signals, they should be installed and connected mostly to avoid issues with other traffic.
You can wash a scooter with a bucket and hose, but you need to avoid spraying any electronics the best you can and don't spray water into the airbox or onto a pod filter. I put a plastic bag over my inlet or filter and use a rubber band to secure it before washing. If it's not really dirty, you can clean it with something like Simple Green.
Ah, so you have some sort of auxiliary turn signals in addition to the standard ones up front? If that's the case, I don't see why they'd need to be connected. If the other signals work, then whatever is disconnected is not needed for operational purposes so safety would be the only concern.
