 Post subject: Does fuel tank have petcock? Not getting gas, wont start
PostPosted: Fri Jan 13, 2017 10:49 pm 
Hey i just bought a craigslist gy6 swapped ruckus (not my best idea) and im used to normal chinese scooters, im not crazy with knowledge on these things but know some basics about scooters, i have a fuel problem just fixed my spark problem and im pretty sure i have no compression cause im not getting any fuel meaning i dont have good vacuum considering i put a brand new mikuni fuel pump in and its not getting gas at all and since i had spark i tried spraying starting fluid in the air filter side of the carb and nothing,
My other question is does a 07 ruckus gas tank have a petcock? Cause when i unplugged the hose from the gas tank no gas came from the tank from simple draining, is that normal? Or could it just be clogged ? Any help would be appreciated, i spent 1400 on this thing and id like to see it run

Gas should drain through out the bottom of the tank.
