The last amount I paid the dealer was $425 in repairs. I was 19yrs old. Now I'm 22 and can rebuild the whole buddy motor. It takes time, but you will learn it all and won't have to rely on the dealer for easy fixes.

if your starter button is not working, the fuse in the battery compartment may be blown. also, if the scooter isn't starting without kicking and your battery is fine, it may be your stator that has gone out.

good luck :)

i use a stubby hand ratchet with a 21mm socket on the end of it and tighten it as much as possible with one hand on the stubby ratchet handle. At least it is tight but not over torqued since you dont have the leverage with a longer handled ratchet.

You'll want to have your plug looking like a choolate color. The best way to do a plug chop is run the sscooter at wide open throttle and hit the kill switch while you have the throttle twisted all the way. Then coast to a stop and pull out the plug.
