I purchased a shenke 150cc slingshot scooter and experienced difficulty steering. Thinking it was lack of experience I had my son drive it. Long story short, this drive turned into a crash. I returned it to the dealer and I was told to take it to my insurance company. Upon independent inspection it was found to have excessive play in the steering. Now I am out the money and a scooter and don't know if it's a defect or improper assembly prior to, or after, delivery.

Buying a Shenke Whip 150
by: Jim Zeiser

Most China scooters bear watching no matter where they come from. If you buy this scooter join and get info on how to do the post delivery inspection. Tightening bolts and screws, checking fuel and vacuum lines and seeing that all the electrical connections are good will save you many headaches later on.

After that doing the valve adjustments and oil changes will extend the scooters life for a long time. Riding them within their limits is also important too. You wouldn't drive a Yaris like an Indy car and expect it to last, you can't flog a China scoot either.

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.

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...
