Any idea why my scooter belt won't pull my wheel when on the ground?

by Austin Christian

My scooter belt broke, and I changed it. It is the right size now, but it won't pull. When it's on its stand, the wheel will spin, but on the ground it won't.

I thought it might be water in the tank so I emptied it and put some clean gas treatment in with my gas and that wasn't the problem. I just don't know. The type of my scooter is mc-02-50b.

Cuts off when off center stand

I'm having that same problem, but I made sure the rollers were in right. Can you explain about the clutch? Because I'm pretty sure that it's not an old one.

I had the same problem

It's the rollers on the front pulley where your belt goes. You said your belt broke... when they break, it sometimes throws out the rollers. If it's not that, then it's the clutch.

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.

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