hi out there hope you are getting enough riding in the british summer. anyway bought a peugeot speedfight 2 100cc as a little money maker fixed body work but engine takes a long time to start and when it does it smokes like a trooper and will not tick over no matter what i do with idle or mixture screw. i have fitted a new piston and rings cylinder ok new plug ad oil pump checked and jets cleaned out checked crank no play either way any help would be good and who said two strokes easy give me my fjr 13 anytime easyer to fix just returned from rhone alps excellent if you need a place to stay there i will forward an excellent hotel

age / mileage? Any recent work?
First thought: IIRC your bike has an automatic choke - does it work?
You say it won't idle properly - does it cut out / stall, or run rough / at the wrong speeds?
Peugeot Speedfight 2 100cc Year? miles?
If all the work you have done is sound?i would be looking at crank case oil seals first for the poor starting,as AdieR says the auto choke as these at start up are on choke and close automatically as the engine warms up,if its not closing off the choke jet it will run very rich all of the time causing it to smoke and probably foul the plug.Also it is commen for these scooters to brake a reed valve which causes poor starting,spit back out of the crankcase into the air box wetting the filter causing a rich mixture.Also very commen for the exhaust to be very nearly blocked with unburnt oil and carbon.Good Luck
sorry for the delay new choke fitted and crank and seals starts first time but smokes like a bugger
