#6 How do I adjust my Rocket Pocket Bike Carburetor?

Adjusting your Carburetor is quick and easy. Tuning your Carburetor will make sure your Rocket PocketBike starts with ease and goes super fast.

1. Check your fuel lines and make sure they are connected properly.

2. Make sure your fuel on/off lever is turned to the on position to let the flow of gas through. The on/off lever is the white thumb tab on your carburetor. If gas is leaking out of your pocket bike as soon as you do this, you will want to go to a scooter or pocket bike shop and get a fuel filter to put on your gas line of your pocket bike.

3. Put your choke lever to the on position. This may not necessarily be the same as how the on/off position is labeled on the pocket bike. (When the choke is in the on position the lever will be covering (blocking) the intake hole, hence choking the pocket bike out) When the choke lever is in the off position the intake hole will be open letting in as much air as possible.

4. Now find the screw on the side of the Carburetor that has a little spring on the shaft of it. This is your air/fuel mixture screw. If you have a Full Fairing (Fairings are the side plastics on the pocket bike) Pocket Bike you will have to take the Fairing off to see the carburetor.

As a good starting point you will want to gently turn this screw all the way to the right till it stops. Then turn a full turn to the Left. Put your rocket pocket bike on the bike stand with the rear tire off of the ground. From here you will start the pocket bike with the choke lever in the on position. (blocking the intake) Then turn the throttle lever a little so the pocket bike starts easier. Now you can pull the pull start with a short quick stroke. The bike should start with in 10 strokes. Make sure you follow instruction #1 above.

If your Rocket Pocket bike does not start, use Carburetor Cleaner. Take the spark plug wire off of your spark plug. Then remove your spark plug. Spray some Carburetor Cleaner into the hole. Screw your plug back in till it is snug. Put the spark plug wire back on your Rocket Pocket bike carb and pull the pull start with a short quick stroke. Turn the throttle handle a little or have someone help you. Your bike will fire up with in 10 strokes.

Leave the rocket pocket bike warm up for a few minutes once it starts. Twisting the throttle handle (giving it gas) to make sure it does not stall out. You will want to throttle the pocket bike and listen to the motor to see what kind of pitch and power the motor is giving off. Then tune the air/fuel mixture screw (screw with the little spring on the shaft of it) a 1/16th (remember this means ever so slightly) of a turn to the left. Then follow it by turning the throttle and listening to your rocket pocketbike.

The immediate goal is to be able to turn the choke off and still have the rocket pocket bike idle. The next goal is to be able to have the carburetor finely tuned so your rocket pocket bike will go top speed (Super Fast).

Why does my chain fall off my Gas Racing Scooter or Gas Skateboard?

This is caused by a bent sprocket the chain not being aligned properly, or the motor not being aligned.

The chain can be adjusted in 2 ways. First you want to make sure the rear tire is straight. Just eye ball it and you should be able to tell if it's straight or not. If it's not straight loosen the nuts that hold the wheel in place. Adjust the chain tightening screws in the back until wheel is straight. If your chain still looks crooked then you need to adjust the motor. To adjust the motor simply lay the scooter on its side so you can get to the bottom of the motor. You will see 3 screws. Loosen all 3 screws a little. Put some lock tight on the screws before tightening the screws back. Then straighten the motor until the chain looks straight and your chain will never fall off again.
