Re: ‘New’ Buddy 125 Owner here

Congrats on the new scoot. If you're going to haul it in the truck, I'd suggest buying (or making) a canyon dancer or similar handlebar harness. You want your tie straps to attach on the top of the bike, front and back. I will definitely look into this. When I picked the bike up, I just strapped to...

Re: ‘New’ Buddy 125 Owner here

Got the Shinko 421’s mounted. Ran tubes inside of these. Not too difficult a job, but certainly not the easiest tires I’ve mounted. They came labeled as ‘Golden Boy’ instead of Shinko. Filled in the lettering with yellow paint marker. I’m not mad about it at all.

20210214_091156.jpg Here is the 3.00 421 on mine. Let us know how your 3.50 fit. The tires are so cheap I might put one on the rear if there is good clearance even though I don't even have the scooter registered anymore. My interest in the scooter sort of waxes and wanes, currently waned. That thin...

Re: ‘New’ Buddy 125 Owner here

I wound up ordering the Shinko 421 and some inner tubes that should arrive on Friday. Now I just gotta figure out what hardware I’m missing and put the bike back together. Fingers crossed I can have this thing assembled by the end of this weekend and ripping around.

Re: ‘New’ Buddy 125 Owner here

It’s looking like the Shinko 421 might be my best best then. I was hoping Kenda made their K761 in the right 3.50-10 size, as I’ve heard nothing but good reviews on that tire. But unfortunately they smallest thing they make is a 120/90x10 and I think that’ll be just too tall to fit without major mod...

‘New’ Buddy 125 Owner here

Hello MB! I just bought a 2009 Buddy 125 for $300 and I’m super stoked! I first fell in love with these scooters back in 2010 when we bought one for my ex-wife, and I’ve been casually looking for a scooter ever since. Couldn’t pass up the deal, so I jumped on it. It’s got 23,xxx miles on it apparent...
