George... I have no clue what you're talking about, but thanks for what looks to be a very informative tutorial on changing the belt. I'm sure it will be very helpful to the person who asked the question.

I appreciate you taking the time to spell out all the steps! :)

Belt replacement
by: George

Tools needed: Impact wrench. proper size impact socket.

  1. Start by taking off the drive side cover.

  2. With the impact wrench, loosen the nut on the front pulley (variator).

  3. Take off the face plate.

  4. Check to make sure that the roller weights are still in place. If not, put them back in the slide.

  5. Place the belt over the rear clutch pulley, then put it on the drive pulley.

  6. Put the face plate back on and tighten with the impact wrench.

  7. Start the motor and let it idle. Rev the motor a little to make sure that everything is working.

  8. Put the cover back on and you're ready to ride!

I hope this was helpful for you.

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.

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...
