Does anyone know if i need to change the gear oil on a 49cc 2007 VIP scooter? I don't know a lot about them so I just want to make sure that it is properly taken care of if I need to do so...

It hard to find because it looks like one of the bolt holding the case together. You should notice that it slightly away from the edge of the case.

The only way I found to refill the case was to purchase one of the old fashion pump oil cans.
Harbor Freight carries them. I just keep pumping
it in until it overflows.

Hope this helps

I have a Turino ssr 150. I see the gear plug but
I cannot locate the opening to fill the gear into.

Gear oil change for VIP scooter
by: Anonymous

Yes you have to change it during the first 300 miles break-in and every 1000 miles to prolong the life of your scooter. NOTE: the gear oil drain plug on this is the one facing the ground. Hope this help.

Yes, I change mine first when new ( 200 miles ) then every 3000 miles. If you are not sure how to change check YouTube.

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.

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