Can anyone tell me anything about Compeller scooters?

by Christine Roy
(Winooski, VT)

I thought I had done a good job researching dealers/trikes. Believe it or not I bought from County Motors. I had to wait 2 extra months before my bike arrived because they probably sold my ordered bike to someone else and told me that they had "run out" and had to re-order.

I finally got the trike and it is adorable. I love it EXCEPT for the fact that
1: The speed keeps everyone waiting for me on a road with a limit of 50 mph; so I'd say 35 is a comfortable speed for the trike,
2: It sounds like it's going to fall apart any minute, and
3: I need to CONSTANTLY adjust the screw which makes it rev more/less. (Sorry, I don't remember the name of the part--I'm a woman not a mechanic).

Legally, at least in Vermont, a 150cc is NOT allowed on the highway. So to make my life easier I wanted to upgrade to the 300cc Compeller. I was just about to purchase when I read that the Magnum, Compeller, & Tornado models are crap and a major headache to keep on the road. Thank goodness I was told because I cannot afford to live at the repair shop.

In lieu of the Compeller I wanted so badly, I was advised to buy a Spyder, which has the 2 wheels in the front. I personally think that it is the ugliest model so far. It looks like someone took a car and chopped the back half off! But it IS said to be very reliable and well built.

Anyway... Does anyone know of a reputable, honest dealer who carries Compellers that would be sold ROAD-WORTHY? I've read some reviews but no one has mentioned the brand new Compellers. Any input would be appreciated.

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.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

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