I traced it coming out of the air filter compartment. When I went to start the scooter it ran rough and took a bit to get to a good idl...

Installed this LED about 2 weeks ago and is a HUGE upgrade from the stock headlight. Sometimes the high beam will flicker and go out completely, but always comes back. Has anyone had this issue? Its only the high beam. Maybe my connector is a little loose? I did put a zip tie around the connector bu...

You can do it by yourself, but it is easier if you have a friend squeezing the lever. You have to remove the top part of the headset. Get a small clear hose to fit over the bleed nipple. Remove the reservoir cover, and drain out the old fluid w/ a turkey baster or syringe. Fill up close to the top....

If like me, you plan on transporting your Buddy a lot, I would highly recommend getting the hitch mounted Versahaul Motorcycle Carrier. It's more expensive than your run of the mill hitch mounted carrier/rack, but it is very high quality and comes with it's own ramp. I use it to haul everything bet...

Buddy weighs right in at 200 lbs. You don't need to spend $500 or more for a hitch carrier. Buy a handlerbar harness and some good cam straps. Save your money for something else: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Steel-Motorcycle-Scooter-DirtBike-Carrier-Hauler-Anti-Tilt-Hitch-Mount-Rack-Ramp/111800414973?e...
