Bulb, fuse? Service with the source of purchase or other equally licensed mechanic. It will save you money in the long run.

I filled up the oil, always use full synthetic (motul) however may have put in too much as since then oil has been leaking when the bike has been switched off. Bike starts easily. Is it a matter of just waiting till the level drops down. It's been about a month since refilling it, done about 500km since. Any good advice appreciated.

If you overfill it will leak the extra but the leak should be gone after your first ride. If not there could be a leak in the system

Hi Franco I've had a flat battery but didn't notice blinking lights. You could also call a piaggio dealership and ask them. They are the experts.

Hi yes it is! When the battery is really dead and the electric start doesn't work anymore, the oil and fuel lights will start flashing constantly. I phoned the dealership where I bought my zip (2017) and am getting my battery replaced tomorrow to fix this.

I topped up oil but overfilled and I assume the excess dripped from the ? overflow something. Now the oil light is on when ignition is engaged and the moped won't start. Ideas?

That's a job for your mechanic. Could be the oil pump.

Hi, I am interested in buying a 50cc Piaggio Zip scooter 2t year 2018. The question is does it have pre mix fuel? Thanks

Hi there is a separate tank for Two stroke synthetic oil. Both tanks are accessible under the saddle. One litre of oil lasts many tanks of petrol and there is a warning light to let you know when to refill.

Why doesnt my oil light come on, when turning the key switch it use to light up for 2 to 3 seconds along with the gas light.. the gas light is fine but the oil light stopped coming on.. any suggestions?

I would put it in for a service as the oil pump may be dodgy. If so the engine could sieze.

My friend said her Zip has daytime sidelights that are permanently on. Mine looks like it does but when My husband took the indicator/daylight bulb holder off there was no place for a daytime running bulb. Is this normal because there are different models? Mine looks exactly the same as my friends. It only has the main headlight which is either on or off.

Hi I'm not sure about your friends model but mine is a 2016 and only the headlamp is permanently on. The scooter only has a small battery that needs replacing approximately every 18 months to 2 years. Extra permanent sidelights would be a further drain on the battery. It might appear that the sidelights are on but this is probably just light reacting with the reflector surround. Kind regards.

Hey fellas is it normal for the zip 50 2t head lights to be dim on idle and brighten up a bit when given some throttle, high beam is crap so also are there replacement hid or led globes? Cheers

Check the battery is ok, fluid level is ok, and terminals clean, and it is normal the headlight gets brighter as the revs increase, this will be more obvious if the battery is not holding full charge.

Just use a good two stroke oil,i was using outboard two stroke oil ,as it produces less smoke emissions,making cleaning out the exhaust system less frequent,

how old is the bike,and does it put out a little, bit of blue exhust smoke,when first started
.sounds like the fuel tank my need to be removed and cleaned out,and remember to change the diff oil on these bikes when due,and that will do over 20,000 kms no worries,if u keep them serviced.

hi bruce there is a brass restrictor plate inside the inlet side of the carburetor,pull that out,and u will get better performance,there is no restrictor in the exhaust discharge, so no need to pull the exhaust system off .
