Disconnect it at the bottom on the wheel. Now you have all the slack you need! BE CAREFUL - do not let the internal cable fall out of the sleeve onto the dirty ground. Tape it, wrap it in a paper towel, or hold it. Use some blue Loctite on the top end - having that come loose after twenty miles of ...

Your scooter looks fantastic, I want to buy the same now The combination of design and colour is something! Thanks :) There are great chance that it will be on the market to be sold next year. I want to get my motocycle license and then look for a scooter with 400cc. This one is 50cc and 45mph is n...

Speedometer wire?

Hi there This afternoon I’ve tried changing my headlight bulb. I was able to open the handle bar cover, then detach the speedometer wire. Unfortunately the led bulb from amazon wasn’t compatible. It didn’t fit in the hole. My problem is where I’ve tried to reattach the speedometer wire. It i...

Oil?

What type of oil do you run you small 2 stroke with? Mineral or synthetic?
The shop that I bought it told me the best mineral that I can find. So I got Castrol GO 2T. Am I doing it good?

thanks

If it can help
When I bought mine I had acceleration problem and speed. Brought it back to the shop, they changed the muffler it was full of carbon. Then I changed the spark plug. Apparently the previous owner didn't used only to go around and didn't rev'd it high enough.

Re: front rack ?

So it's more about the look than the utility. I'll save my $$ for other things.

Yup, I'll use the little seat bag that I've found at 50$ on Amazon. In addition to the limited weight you can put on the steering column, I don't care for the look of the front rack and don't like drilling holes in the front plastics. You could bungee a duffel bag onto the seat behind you while you ...

front rack ?

Hi anyone use the front folding rack? Is it useful? I need more luggage space to go to work. Sometimes the space under the seat is full, my backpack is heavy too. Like said earlier in another post I just can't wait to get my top case. I was thinking about the front rack, a backpack and bungee cords....
