Hi Paul.
Sometimes when they have been sitting around for a while you need to let them run at idle for a little bit then eventually start to accelerate. Back off the acceleration if it is going to stall. It could also be a couple of other things if you have not started it for 9 months. Best would be to get a mechanic to look at it. Your carby could be clogged up with dried up fuel, the rubber seals in carby and rubber hoses may have to be replaced if there is an air leak somewhere.

If you have any questions you are welcome to contact Torino Motorcycles on 02 9557 6180.

Hi Asna

Thank you for the enquiry. The compliance plate on the Famosa is on the bottom right hand side of the frame rail near the engine. You have to look up from underneath the bike where the right hand side skirt ends.

Hi Stephen.
Thank you for your inquiry.
Turn the ignition switch on. Make sure the kill switch on the right hand side controls is in the on position. Put the side stand to the up position. Hold in one of the brakes and press the start button. You may have to give the throttle less than a 1/4 turn while starting it.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact Torino Motorcycles on 02 9557 6180.

Hi guys,

The speedometer and odometer are not working on my Torino Famosa. I changed the cable but still not working. Do you have an idea what it could be? Also, do you know where can I by a new speedometer and odometer (The screen at the top is yellow).

Another question, the kick is not working. It looks like stuck. Any idea how I could fix this?

Thank you for your help.

It will more than likely be the Speedo drive which is located in the front wheel.

Thank you Gerard. You are right. I've investigated this yesterday and the sensor is not working anymore. I will get a new one. Thanks mate

Torino
Torino M.Torino

Hi

It may be the speedo pick up at the wheel or the cable may not be installed correctly. It should be a simple and quick fix.

We stock the parts for Torino Scooters, you are able to purchase parts by contacting us on 02 9557 6180.

The kick starter has some gears inside the cover which need to be in the correct position otherwise it may get stuck. I would suggest you go to an authorised mechanic to have the bike serviced.
