I can't seem to get to where the spark plug is, or even find it (the "manual" is totally useless). Someone told me I need to take off the bucket under the seat, etc. but it does not come off, even after all screws are out.

Does anyone know where the plug is on this thing? and how to get to it?

Very disappointed with this 2011 scooter. Will not start with only 300 miles on it. sometimes it will start with the kicker but have been left stranded on the road about 5 times now after it was good and warmed up.Do you think I need a new plug after only 300 miles??The batterry is good and charged but just wont start while crankig it. when I bought this they said its Italian made, .Beginning to think its from China!! Any tips out there that might help me??? thanks in advance

You see the cover by the floorboard with the holes in it? That comes off and you can see the plug from there. But to really get at it you have to take off the seat, the two fenders and the front panel under the front of the seat. Once you've bared the scooter then you'll have excellent access to the plug. A pin, I know, but less risk to cross threading the plug when you put it back.

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...
