    Exclamation 2008 50cc Aprilia Sportcity Idle/Throttle Problem

    I recently looked at a 2008 50cc Aprilia. It runs awesome until you sit at a light idling for more than 30 seconds, then it will stall out.

    Before it stalls out though, you can tell by listening to it that somethings wrong. It starts to spit and sputter. I read a thread here: http://modernvespa.com/forum/topic48831 that talked a spark plug wire problem throughout all the the different cc's in all models of Aprilia. But I don't think that that would affect idling. Would it?

    Other than that everything else was good except for a bad batteries. So is this a big problem? How can I fix it?

    dont play with the battery it can short out the system and lead to ignition problems and burn out the whole electrical system
    replace the battery with a new charged one and clean or replace the spark plug with a new one
    then if it sputters again we will fiddle with it further

    But wouldn't spark plugs affect it all the time, not just at a full stop?

    it will affect it the most when it idles when the stator coil gives the least electricity
    and therefore the dead battery creates a sputtering
