Eagle Pony 50cc Scooter Review

by Randy
(Chicago, IL)

I had bought one my Eagle Pony 50cc scooter at a dealer back home in Elkhart, Ind. Within 2 wks, the throttle cable broke, I did the break in fluid changes, about 2 months in, dead cell in battery cost me $50.

Ran like a champ after that (with me weighing in around 280-290 or so) on this 50cc. I buried it at 56-57mph! I could easily cruise at 40mph after finally getting there due to my weight I eventually noticed a lag in over all power.

Now I'm about 6-7 months and 8,000 miles later and second tune up I could barely reach 35 like I was on my old 86' jog and was half beating to death (it never went faster than 35, 2 stroke 50cc) about 3 weeks later it wouldn't start anymore.

At the time I was OK with that because it was starting to get cold again, yeah I started riding before temp reached 50! In the end, the kick start wouldn't return to rest position, would not start without exhausting my self and the battery AND stay running for more than 3 minutes and soon enough it wouldn't start again.

All I got from the 50cc 4 stroke was rotation with some "putter" from the exhaust but that was it, it was done for.

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...
