How do I find a quality scooter mechanic for 49cc scooters?

One old scooter riding Grandpa!

I just bought a used 49cc X~treme scooter. It has no pull starter and I had to fix the disc brakes and front end. I got it for $40 and it was a mess. I need someone to tell me if it runs and has a pull starter for it.

I also need someone to look at my 33cc engine and tell me if in fact it is a 33cc. I'm here in Tigard, Oregon. Can you help me? I'm handicapped and need a mobility chair, but I'm to proud for that so I went with the stand up gas powered scooters, I have 3, a 26cc/33cc/49cc and I need help finding a shop and mechanic. Thank you all very much. John Milligan

It's a scooter town, John.

Hello John Milligan,

I'm sorry that you're having some mechanical problems.

I'm new to scooters myself, but there's a ton of scooter dealers and scooter shops in this town. Just let your computer mouse do the walking and Google scooters in Portland and get your list of places to call. Under X-Treme Scooters, I got

Oregon X-Treme
9131SW Hill Street
Tigard, OR
(503) 310-3659

… as far as regular big scooter places might be able to help you, but then again, they may only service what they sell, call and ask:

P Town Scooters
3347 SE Division St.
(503) 241-4745

Bob Lamphere's Beaverton Motorcycle

Factory Motorsport

Sargent's Motorsports

Best of luck in your search.

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.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
