How do I change the key switch on my chinese scooter?

by Anonymous

I lost the keys to my scooter, so I used the kick starter for a while then it broke clean off. Now I'm just trying to replace my key switch.

Any one know how to get to the screws to take it off? Or should I just go to a pro?

Might have a hard time getting an answer to this

Because this question is posed by many people who have stolen a scooter (and I am NOT saying that you stole this scooter), most reputable scooter forums will not offer advice on how to change the key switch.

They also don't offer advice on how to get into the pet carrier. It's a common question, both for thieves and legitimate owners who have locked their keys in there (yes, I am one of those legitimate but stupid owners who have done that, and at the DMV no less!).

Anywho, if you have a hard time finding someone to help you with this, don't take it personally. While they want to help other scooterists, they don't want to help someone who has stolen one.

I'm not trying to dodge your question, but it will be impossible to tell what you should do without knowing the make, model of your scooter. How about a photo of the key switch in question?
I think your question would be handled very well by the pros at this Chinese scooter forum, but you'll need to give them some more info...

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.

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. 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...

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.
