Scooter Type: GTS250
I'm looking for some help with this issue I'm having, after not being used for about four weeks my GTS250 will start but just stalls immediately when cold, if I ride until warm it's fine? It back fires when slowing down, I seems to be over fuelling and has done this for the last three mornings and once when leaving work today. I have had a look at the spark plug cap and that seems nice and secure. The bike has about 8000 miles on the clock if that makes a difference. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you using an after market exhaust? If so is it on its last legs? Needs repacking?

I have this exact problem. But I’ve just installed a new exhaust and it is still doing it.
I also replaced the fuel pump because I heard that might be the problem but it hasn’t solved it.
