Parts can be had at or

Only you can tell if the scoot is worth it. If the price is not too bad and it's reasonably sound mechanically, go for it.

Before buying an off-brand scoot, check with local dealers and repair shops. If they can't get parts for it, or won't work on it, stay away. I'm sure there are good Chinese scooters out there, but it's real easy to get stuck with an orphan that will become a back-yard queen. A scooter is a substantial investment both financially and emotionally. You don't want to start off with something that will disappoint. Why not look for a used KYMCO, Buddy, SYM, or Honda? Parts are readily available and there are well-developed dealer networks. The initial cost will be higher, but you'll save big bucks in the long run.

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.
