Haya.

Just bought a used Ditech yesterday, and yea today after staying over night indoor in a kinda factory sort a, it wont start! :( Might it be the battery? Because the store said they would give me a new one.

Oh yea, and is it true that there shall be gaffe tape on 3/4 of the radiator behind the front shield? The store said that its to cold here in Denmark to the scooter gonna use that cooling system that the radiator does, so they need to put gaffe tape on it? True thing?

Concerning the battery, how to know if you don't check it properly ?
Concerning the tap, its true. The temp needle won't rise with temperatures around zero.

What model year is it? Is it an 'R Factory' Ditech?


When you turn on the injector switch before starting, count how many seconds the injector runs before it stops. (This will help us determine which software version you have)

Well, its the SR50 Ditech from 2002, the injector is lighting all the time, but when i want to start it it just can't.... I'm getting a new battery of the store so well.. should be that

Is it cranking fast (drdrdrdrdrdr) or slow (tuf tuf tuf tuf) ?

theoreticly - no! because of the thermostat that(if you didn't know) with the temp below ~85degrees C doesn't allow the cooling liquid circulate through the radiator.. as for reality.. maybe..

If it were flat battery your fuel pump wouldn't prime and the lights in the dials wouldn't give you anything.

If you're injector light is coming on when you switch the ignition on then it's something else in your electrics.

This may be a stupid question but are you turning your ignition all the way over ? :rolleyes:

If the scoots been neglected and left out in the elements alot you could have a broken wire somewhere in your loom, normally happens around connections, just look closely and give me a light pull to check. Could also be a short, have fun pulling your fairings off. If your SR had a previous owner similar to mine you may find an interesting assortment of screws and cable ties holdig things together :)

Good luck !

I did buy a recharger ^_^ I did charge it for 30 mintues, had a trip yay :D! And then well it went flat :P So the store is giving me a new battery after the holidays ^^ I was wondering if you guys out there normally recharge your battery? And how often? Cuss its kinda sucky if I drive to school which is 16 km away from me, and then suddenly the power goes off >_>

Wulffez
03-19-2008, 05:14 PM
Eum så yea! I bought a recharging thingy :)! I did charge the battery for 30 minutes, and yay! It did finally start :D! Thanks for the answers anyways! The battery is getting replaced with a new one after the holidays cuss it went flat again after 5 minutes of driving -.-' But yea, im getting the new battery for free, so why not? And it's 6 years old the one which is sitting in the ditech right now.

I was also wondering if you guys ever recharge your battery in ditech? Because it's kinda sucky if my ditech's power goes suddenly of midway to highschool ( 16 km away from me )

Thanks for the quick answers ^_^

Ciudale
03-19-2008, 05:33 PM
Yes, better to keep an eye on the battery with that bike. But unless there is a shortcircuit somewhere this won't suddenly discharge. When the cranking becomes much slower than usual, its time to charge it.
You can also install a kickstart if you are that much frightened by such issues.

Wulffez
03-20-2008, 03:21 AM
How can I install a kickstart? Is it hard? How much does it cost? Does it effect the machine badly ?

deathwest
03-20-2008, 05:13 AM
It's not easy to install and is usually useless since you will get a new battery. Mine never failed since 7 years....

You got to install the whole SR2000 aluminium vario cover assembly (for Morini engine, around 150 dollars new) or simply the kickstart assembly (for Piaggio engine, around 50 dollars). No bad issues reported by those who installed it.

TiminIndy
03-20-2008, 07:43 AM
New battery and this problem is solved. While you wait on the new battery, you should try to fully charge the battery with your charger. If it has a "trickle charge" (1.5 amp-2 amp), it is best to use that and keep it on there until it is fully charged.

Otherwise, how does the scoot run? How many km's on it? Can you tell if they did good maintenance on it?

Where are you from? (you should fill this in on your profile)

Welcome to the forum and the world of Aprilia!!! :burnout:

Wulffez
03-20-2008, 10:18 AM
ey i did fully charge it today, I got home from a little trip to sweden ( i live in denmark) its fully charged yay! I turn it on... and sounds weird, and goes off.. Then i power it up again, and wuptie dies again ! and then the battery is flat -.-' It worked for 10 minutes yesterday for only 30 minutes of charging >_> I have had this bike for three days ! Have only been able to drive for one lol -.-'

And thanks for the welcome :) I bought it for 12.000 DKK aprox. 2100 USD it have run 6700 km aprox. 4163 miles.. It did run smooth and nice the day I tried it before I bought it.. And it also ran smooth on the day I got it home. I haven't really been able to test its acceleration but its the 50cc since in Denmark we may only drive 30 km/h *shait* But the variation ring is off so it runs 50-55 km/h on the speedo (I got no clue how to put the variation ring back in? Any got a guide or so :)? I'm 16 in 2½ months, so I can drive legal yay ! ^^ Its the red/black one and yea.. my problem is this: http://wulffez.com/Ditech.MPG

NEW VID: http://wulffez.com/battery.MPG
(sorry for my crap English -.-)

But as you can see the steer lock wont work? Do I only need http://www.aprilia-scooters.dk/product.asp?product=14575&sub=109&page=1 this kit? Or do I need more to fix it? Because it will lock the right side, but not the left.

Wulffez
03-20-2008, 11:34 AM
How can I start it?! What about through a car?

TiminIndy
03-20-2008, 01:29 PM
OK - In the first video it sounds like you definitely don't have a full charge on that battery. (When it is cold out, you need a full charge to start it) In the second video it's clear that your battery is fully charged and it is cranking fine, so the next step would be to check your spark plug. It's very possible that your plug is fouled. Take it out and inspect it and see if you can get a good picture of it for us. Even if it doesn't look too bad, it would be good if you could try it with a brand new plug. An NGK CPR8E would be fine to start with.

Do you know if the petrol you have in there is new?

If the plug doesn't do it, we can move on to your injectors, etc..., and if all else fails you might want to just see a dealer. Is the dealer you got it from an Aprilia dealer? I don't know how far you are from Mosta Hill, Sweden, but Dragster Pilota (http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/member.php?u=553) is a dealer there and a forum member here. He is one of the most knowledgeable people about Ditechs that I know of anywhere in the world.

Your ignition lock appears to be broken, but I couldn't tell - did you turn the handlebars to the left and then turn the key all the way off (to the left)?

By the way, for a 16 year old Danish guy, your English is pretty good!

TiminIndy
03-20-2008, 01:51 PM
I figured out that you aren't real close to Dragster Pilota's shop. He is in Enköping, northeast of Stockholm. Probably at least 325 km from you.

I got no clue if the petrol is either new or old, but if I should be honest, I think its more than a month old. Euhm. The thing is, with the second movie, the front lights can't light up 100%. And yeah.. Where is the plug? Do you got any guide with pictures how I get into the plug.

The dealer I got it from says its the battery, and comes with a new one here next week.

Yes I did take the key out and I did turn it all the way to the left.

And I live in Denmark :P So it wouldn't be able for me to get that scooter into Sweden.

THE MAX
03-20-2008, 02:07 PM
A great chance you fucked up the sparkplug with the many starting atempts with low battery power.

-Get a fresh plug and ventilate the engine by making a few starting atempt before you put the new one in

In second movie start power seems to be fine ,but give battery a overnight charge instead of the sort periodes

Wulffez
03-20-2008, 02:15 PM
But I wonder why after 5 hours of recharging that I could get the engine up and running, but then it went off after 6 seconds, then I did a second attempt, it was on for few seconds and since then I couldn't get it up and running...

What's the purpose of the EU if you can't take a scooter over the border?

To get to the spark plug, lay on your back and put your head under the middle of the scooter and look up. It is right above the center stand. Your scoot may have come with a tool like this:

http://www.1977mopeds.com/catalog/images/Spark-Plug-Tool.gif

...or you can use a 16mm spark plug socket (better):

http://www.mytoolstore.com/wilmar/w1127c.jpg


You should take several hours to read the "sticky" threads, how-to tutorials, etc... You can learn a lot about how the scooter works and see pictures of it disassembled.

Hopefully, that petrol hasn't been sitting in there too long.

Your dealer may be right that it needs a battery if that one isn't holding a charge, but we could see that even when fully charged, it isn't starting. I think it's your plug. (hopefully)

A little further back, behind the belly pan. You will access it between the rear wheel and the center stand. If you use a socket and ratchet, you will need an extension:

http://www.mytoolstore.com/wilmar/w801c.jpg

You can get to it from the bottom without removing any body parts. For some reason the manual tells you to remove the fairings next to the battery.

Edit:

This pic has several body parts removed, but you can see the position of the plug on the bottom of the engine:

The thing Max posted is a tool that comes with the scooter when you buy it new. I prefer a spark plug socket if you are going out to buy anyhow. They are deeper than normal sockets and they even have a rubber insert that holds onto the spark plug and protects the porcelain part. I use a 16 mm spark plug socket, a 5" extension. I also use a U'Joint adapter to make it easier, but that isn't necessary:

Might as well go buy a 16mm spark plug socket, a 12-14 cm extension, and a U-Joint adapter, as well as a new spark plug (NGK CPR8E). You will get plenty of use out of those tools.

You will want to gap the spark plug at about .55 mm

I got a guy to help me today ¨_¨ he didnt knew wtf was wrong with the scoot, he knew also only to old puchs ^^ Typical 1950 danish moped :P But he learned me and gave a tool to take out the plug ^_^ We did clean it, it was still working, or it looked like.. But it still couldn't start. So I'm up for a new battery and spark plug in my local hardware store tomorrow. I JUST WANT TO GO OUT AND DRIVE :worship::bangwall:

12v and 5 amp aye?
But DO it need to be 5 amp?

TiminIndy
03-21-2008, 02:59 PM
The recommended battery is a YB9-B, which is a 12 volt, 9 Amp/Hr battery with 130 CCA (cold cranking amps). I would not buy anything less than these specifications.

Make sure it has 130 CCA.

This battery goes in a lot of motorcycles and scooters, you should be able to find one.

I thought the dealer was buying you one? Are you sure that your battery isn't holding a charge?

Wulffez
03-21-2008, 03:23 PM
but but.. Can't I use less than 9amp :S? Cuss that I got now is like 5 amp and did run smooth for some years? What about the 6 amps? THE MAX, do you got a 6 amp and what scoot do you got? Yea the dealer is buying me one but I need to freaking drive on it, can't wait till next week... :P

When I got my first Ditech 5 years ago, it had a 5 amp battery with 70 CCA. It ran fine most of the time, but on cold days when it sat outside all day at work, it wouldn't start at the end of the day. If you want your scoot to start on cold days, get the 130 CCA battery recommended in many threads on this forum. YB9-B



I already gave you the plug twice in this thread.

TiminIndy
03-22-2008, 09:26 AM
First of all, exactly what spark plug did you get?

Secondly, it is very important that you get it threaded in properly to start with, or you can damage the threads on your engine case. Try to start it with your fingers so you can feel it--and make sure you have it at the same angle as it was when you took the old one out. Do not force it--it should turn fairly easily, and do not over tighten it once you get it all the way in.

The other thing you might need to do is clean the threads in the hole it goes into. I had this problem once because the threads were caked up with carbon. I used a Q-Tip soaked with carburetor cleaner, and after I cleaned it the plug went right in.

You might need some help on this. Hopefully you haven't done irreversible damage. Start out by cleaning the hole the way I described.

Are the threads on the new spark plug damaged? Can you get a picture of the hole? Did you see a lot of black carbon inside the hole in the upper threads?

You have to drain cooling fluid then disconnect all wires, then take the engine off the frame, then open the cylinderhead (easiest part)

It's a very expensive operation since he has to remove some fairings (assemble and disassemble is easy one hour). Try at least to remove fairings yourself. It's easy and worth it.

Ciudale
03-23-2008, 01:21 AM
^^Good suggestion^^
But at that point, this won't take much more time to disconnect the engine and re-install the head yourself. All this depends on the energy you have to spend on the bike, and sometimes, there is just no more...

Wulffez

TiminIndy
03-23-2008, 06:24 PM
Man, somebody really fooked up those threads. It looks like it was done before you got it. I don't see any of the carbon build up on the inner threads like I had, but they are mangled pretty good inside, not just at the opening. I think it's worth a try to see if a shop can use a tap to fix those threads before you replace the head. If you do end up replacing the head, you might as well have them clean or replace the piston and rings and inspect the cylinder for any damage, since the whole engine will be apart anyhow. I know you must hate this, but it will all be worth it in the end.

For only 4400 miles, the bottom of the engine looks like they rode this hard and didn't keep it very clean.

Are you sure there is no way you can get the scoot to D.P. in Enköping?

He could rebuild that thing into a dream machine.

If you sold it to me and I found that, I would come knocking at your door.

Maybe you should take it back to the dealer you got it from and show him how fried the spark plug hole is. Someone has fried that thing and then managed to force a plug in there to sell it. I'm sure the dealer doesn't have to fix it since you bought it used, but maybe he'll work with you. Do you know how the dealer got this scooter? There's a good chance they knew of this problem. Changing spark plugs is something you need to do fairly often.

Maybe D.P. can recommend a shop near you if the dealer won't help.

Well in denmark we got some thing called "14 days return right" So I'll see if he accept that I get all my cash back and he gets that crap scoot right in his neck.. And I'll buy a new SR50 Ditech Factory instead

Absolutely. Don't let him try to blame that damage on you. You can tell that has been there a while. Maybe he'll offer to fix it instead of taking it back.

You can look up Aprilia dealers in your country here:

If you get another Ditech, take good care of it. Spoil it, shine it, learn all about it. My last Ditech lasted 14,000 miles and ran great until the end when it was stolen. Only problem I ever head was some carbon build up at the end, which I was able to clean out. It started on the first try for years. My new one has only 250 miles on it now, but that will go up now that spring is here (almost).

I would ask him to put it in writing (on paper) for you. If you have 14 days to return it, what day does that end? Are you sure he isn't just putting you off until the 14 days are up?

Perhaps you should tell him you want to return it and you will buy it back after the repairs are done. You could offer to pay $200 more for it after the repairs.

Hi All. I have a 2003 SR50 Ditech with about 4000 miles on it. It had been running great. I live in Miami Beach Florida. The scoot is kept outside. About 2 months ago, after a stong rain storm, the scoot would not start. With the ignition on I hear the fuel pump run, the injector light comes on steady and the begins to flash constant. It cranks fine but will not fire. Where do I begin??? Thanks
