    Go Bubba!!!
    Bubba's got skills, he will start the famous #43 in the top ten tomorrow for the Daytona 500.
    Funny how a recent article in the Washington post indicates were I live in Randolph county, Randleman is a very unfriendly place for his types.
    Looks like the Post forgot to tell Randlemans #1 citizen Richard Petty and his new driver Bubba Wallace this.

    Are you/does your Scoot have a vacuum operated fuel pump?
    Is the fuel cap vented?
    Is the Fuel coming out of the fuel line to the carb?
    You can check carb float operation by leaving the float bowl off and attach a or the fuel line and see if she flows fuel.
            Good luck

    Your introducing starter fluid as fuel and she fires and once that fuel introduced is used up it dies, so gas is not getting into the engine.
    You can introduce a small amount of gas directly into the port if ya have the carb off and she should fire right up with no carb on.
      Good luck..

    If she starts and runs on Stater fluid for a few seconds that tells you she's not getting fuel.
    The other thing with starter fluid have you confirmed with a Compression gauge your Compression?
    How much starter cranking have you had to do to get her to start with the upgrades?

    Here are a couple threads on 61mm pistons Including the Higher Compression Taida piston.
    We don't know the Dome volume of this piston so I can't say what your compression ratio would be using this Piston.
    The Higher Compression will Compliment a non stock hot rod cam..

    Here is a 61mm Cylinder thread.
    Note what NCY did to the piston to clear stroker applications,  terrible!

    On a Weld Re-Grind I've only had first hand experience with the girls over at Web cam..
    And yup I ponied up for Adjustable Cam gears to properly complete the project. we need some nice adjustable cam gear for the GY-6                                                     Isky, Lunati, Crower etc all prove a fine product these days.
    I know Dan Crower got into the Powersport cam market but unaware if they do one off customs to your specs like Web..
    Tryong to provide a link to Web Camshafts and its not happening...

    I had a bad pin/post on my coil, the tach would go crazy jumping all around the rpm board, she never died but ran funky. must been firing off a spark any time it felt like it.
      Good luck
