Recall Summary: PIAGGIO IS RECALLING 1,260 MY 2008-2009 APRILIA SCARABEO 200 MOTORCYCLES. THE FLOAT LEVEL IN THE FLOAT BOWL OF THE CARBURETOR WAS NOT SET CORRECTLY IN PRODUCTION, DIRT AND THE VARNISH RESIDUE OF DRIED GASOLINE NOT ALLOWING THE FLOAT NEEDLE TO SEAT CORRECTLY, AND A BLOCKAGE OF THE EVAPORATIVE EMISSION HOSES THAT DID NOT ALLOW THE FLOAT BOWL TO VENT CORRECTLY. THE CARBURETOR WAS NOT ABLE TO MAINTAIN CORRECT OR CONSTANT PRESSURE IN THE FLOAT BOWL. INCONSISTENT PRESSURE IN THE FLOAT BOWL WOULD EITHER PUSH TOO MUCH OR NOT ENOUGH FUEL TO AND THROUGH THE JETS FOR ANY ONE THROTTLE POSITION WHICH DOES NOT ALLOW THE CARBURETOR TO CORRECTLY METER FUEL TO THE ENGINE.
