Connecting an Electric Start on a 50cc Scooter Without Keys

Have you lost your scooter keys and can’t seem to find them anywhere? The good news is that there is a way to connect the electric start on a 50cc scooter without having keys for ignition. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process, step by step. Keep in mind that this method should only be employed in emergency situations and you should consult a professional to replace your lost keys as soon as possible. Disclaimer: This information is not offered as professional advice and should only be used at your own risk. Step 1: Access the Ignition Switch
Firstly, locate the ignition switch on your scooter, which is usually near the handlebar. Remove the screws securing the ignition switch cover in order to access the wiring. Step 2: Locate and Disconnect Wires
Now that you have exposed the ignition switch, you’ll find several wires connected to it. Look for two specific wires – one red and one black, which are responsible for powering the scooter. Carefully disconnect these two wires from the ignition switch. Step 3: Connect the Wires
Once the red and black wires are disconnected, connect them together using a wire connector, a small piece of wire, or by twisting and taping them securely together. This will create an electrical circuit that allows the electric start to function without the use of a key. Step 4: Test the Connection
Now that the wires are connected, it’s time to test the connection. Press the electric start button on your scooter. If everything is connected properly, your scooter should start up without an issue. If the scooter doesn’t start, recheck the connections and ensure that the wires are connected securely. Remember that this method should only be used in emergency situations and is not a permanent solution. Be sure to consult with a professional locksmith or scooter repair service to replace your ignition and keys as soon as possible.
