2007 50cc Chinese Scooter Review

by Chris
(Spokane, WA)

I bought this bugger, a 50cc Chinese Scooter (they're all the same) over the internet for 700 bucks in 2007.

What I didn't like -

1. No bill of sale, so I had to take it to the state trooper's office to get inspected... there's another 50 bucks. If you purchase from a brick and mortar place, you'll get one. If not, you can go back and raise hell. Hard to do when the guy you're emailing just ignores you now that he got your money.

2. Wouldn't run for crap - turns out the spark plug was just bad enough to where it would spark out of the cylinder but as soon as there was air pressure in there, it was too much resistance and it wouldn't spark - fix? Get an NGK plug from your local parts places the day you get the bike.

3. Very little power. Max speed of 30.

What I did like-

After I got the spark plug thing fixed, it was great. In town, great commuter if you don't have to go over 30 mph. I put over 1k miles on it before I moved out of town and got a full size motorcycle. I sold it for 100 less than what I paid for it.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
