Mitch’s videos are the best. Amazing…and I don’t even have a Hooligan.

Like Robot but with cool hair! This guy needs to buy a Royal Alloy and do some disassembly videos. But seriously, these kinds of videos are very helpful to the community.

Slightly off subject. What was the worse scooter you ever worked on in regards to panel removal? My nomination is a Suzuki BUrgman 200. I just ended up breaking all the tabs and used velcro tape to reinstall them. Totally ignorant design with a bunch of hidden mounting points in tight places and the service manual is poorly written. Honda manuals are the gold standard and it was obvious Suzuki didn't reference one for their service manual layout.

The Scarabeo line of Aprilia scooters is pretty bad. They’re designed like armadillos, with very few visible fasteners, and it takes about 45 minutes to disassemble starting from the rear (removal of top box and mounting bracket) to be able to get to the engine. I can’t imagine paying shop time to do that work.

The Buddies are incredibly easy to access for maintenance. My only observation would be that the Vespas have Buddies beat because the “pet carrier” under the seat just pulls up and doesn’t have any fasteners.
