Eagle XY-150T 150cc Scooter Review

by Steve Ward
(Dayton, Ohio)

This was my first scooter purchase as an adult. I had a Honda Spree (49cc) in 1985 with no concerns at all! Anyway, I purchased this Eagle from ATV Discounter from the Internet and they have since went out of business.


I purchased this scooter in Feb. 2009 for a total of $997. We live in Ohio so we did not really ride it until April 2009. Everything was fine until August 2009 when I was at a stop sign and it stalled. I was unable to restart the scooter so to the shop it went.

It needed a new ignition coil, rear ball bearings and new valves. Grand total=$545.49. Summer of 2010 it developed an oil leak. This winter I was in the attic getting Christmas decorations down and a piece of cardboard (not a box just a piece of cardboard) that weighed an ounce or two fell from the attic ladder hit my left side mirror and broke the mirror stem in half!

I went to start the scooter about 3 weeks ago. It started just fine but stalls after 5-60 seconds depending on how long I wait between tries. I cleaned the carb, checked fuel flow, and that is why I am now looking for another scooter which I have found.

***My advice:
  1. Google company name and the word "complaints" read what comes up.
  2. Google the bike name and complaints.
  3. Research the engine name.
  4. In my opinion "parts" made in Japan and Taiwan are far superior than Chinese.
  5. If you like to ride double (like we do) consider a 250cc bike.
  6. You get what you pay for. My bike was under $1000 but five months later I paid $545 in repair costs and
  7. Remember it is a scooter not a motorcycle. It is not as hardy as a motorcycle and it needs to be treated as such.
  8. Oh and remember people will always pull out in front of you.

Be careful and happy scootering... Steve

CHINESE BIKES..... NEW
by: OLDTIMER

I HAVE BEEN A LICENCED CYCLIST SINCE 1969 AND HAD A LOT OF BIKES BIG AND SMALL AND A 1959 HARLY TRIKE. I HAVE BEEN RIDING CHINESE SCOOTERS SINCE 2005(CHINESE VESPA KNOCKOFFS) I LOVE IT BECAUSE I CAN CARRY SO MUCH STUFF AT MY FEET,BUT.... THESE CHINESE BIKES ARE CHEAPLY MADE BUT PARTS ARE ALSO CHEAP IF YOU CAN FIX IT YOURSELF AS I CAN AND DO NOT RIDE MORE THAN 15 MILES ONE WAY. I just bought a beautiful sweet running 4 month old 2013 150cc with radio,480 miles from a dealer for only $600. NOW WHY DID HE SWELL IT TO ME SO CHEAP??? THERE HAS TO BE A REASON! WELL I HOPE I HAVE FOUND IT AFTER 2 WEEKS OF FRUSTRATION.(IT STALLS OUT INTERMINTINTLY) I HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH A LIST OF POSSIBILITIES AND....... I THINK IT IS MY MAGNITO, WEAK SPARK BECAUSE I CAN HOLD SPARK PLUG AND CRANK IT... THIS IS NOT SOMETHING I ADVIZE BUT I WAS RUNNING OUT OF POSSIBILITIES, WISH ME LUCK WITH THE NEW MAGNITO

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.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

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.
