Boris The Spider

Boris The Spider

"Boris" lives in Colorado. It's a 2005 SunL 150 that has had a custom 2009 Honda Element Tawny Gold metalflake paint job w/3 coats of clear overlay; its "ugly box" air cleaner system was removed & replaced with a chrome cone custom unit to help the engine breathe better.

The belt drive cover was sandblasted & painted a nice semi gloss black, the bug eye rear view mirrors were replaced with a matte black set of Valkyrie mirrors, the stock grips have been replaced with some nice black foam with custom eagle chrome end (extremely comfortable on any ride) grips, and the entire Scooter body panels have had graphic design spiders & spider webs (in black)put on.

"Boris" used to be an ugly neon Chinese blue in color. Now "Boris" is a head turner wherever he goes. The air cleaner swap added 4 miles per gallon in mileage & added another 5 mph in speed (a simple modification that added to performance).

"Boris" and his owner belongs to a Northern Colorado scooter club with ever growing membership.

"Boris" got his name from the old Who rock band song "Boris The Spider" (video available on YouTube).

Wow! I'm really impressed by your Boris. I mean you have changed its looks thoroughly. You have really modified it. The way you changed it's eye rear view mirrors with Valkyrie mirror set, it has totally changed the look. It does not look like an ugly blue Chinese neon. You have upgraded it well. It looks like amazing bike now.

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.
