Bill - Proud Owner of a 2006 United Motors X-Peed 50-r Scooter

Hi... I'm Bill and I just moved to North Carolina and have been riding scooters since 2006 in Maryland. I currently own a brand new out of crate 2006 United Motors x-peed 50-r.

Found it by accident and after getting the cobwebs out of it and some minor adjustments have managed to ride for 200 miles on it since the 13th of May.

Now all I have to do is get the gas gauge to work on it, not fun running out of fuel when you don't know where you are. lol.

Gas Gauge
by: bill benson

If you are clever you can take the sending unit out and repair it. Chances are, the float is disintegrated. Get some corks from a hardware or home depot etc. Put them on in place of the float and coat them with epoxy. Also the swivel point of the arm gets worn and causes trouble. It might be that after market gauges are better than originals.

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.
