Changing a VIP 50cc belt NEW

You absolutely do not need to remove the front pully.It will most certainly cause you headaches as even experienced techs get into trouble doing that.
Just rotate and squeeze the rear clutch use a wedge or have someone hold it all the way open and force the belt into the rear of the clutch.Wrap it around the clutch until both the top and bottom of the belt are together. I use a small wire tie sinched tight to hold it there. Then insert the belt around the top of the front pully use a rathcet to turn it towards the starter gear the belt will slowly work its way in between then past the starte gear teeth rotate about 1/4 turn until ratchet interferes with belt. Reposition ratchet to the other side of belt and turn final 1/2 turn till belt pops into place and you are done.Takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.

I learned by going to YouTube and searching for CVT belt change... there are at least 100 videos.

49cc belt size 669-18-30

Don't let these instructions scare you. Watch YouTube... they will make sense.

The belt can be changed without an impact wrench. After 6 or 7 changes I broke down and bought one at Pep Boys for $50.00 (12v type). Harbor Freight has one for about $35.00.

Without an impact wrench, it is easier to remove the front pulley. Helps to have 2 people to hold the pulley by placing a large flat screwdriver into the gear with a heavy bar to support it as you take off the nut.

Front pulley is in two pieces... it is best if you can keep the back piece from moving. If the back piece has already moved, you will need to take it off and put the weights (little round wheels) back in their place.

Once the front side of the pulley is off just put the new belt one the rear pulley then over the front shaft. Then reinstall the front pulley.

All scooter owners need to know how to change a belt; it is just part of ownership. I always carry a spare belt and tool with me.

Good Luck and remember learning is where the fun is.

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...
