Speedometer Cable Bolt for Scooter Front Tire

Speedometer Cable Bolt for Scooter Front Tire

Hi there... I changed my speedometer cable 3 days ago on my scooter. The old cable on the bottom where the thin metal part goes into a golden bolt, which connects into the font tire, was broke. So in order to take that out, I had to remove this golden bolt, thus chewing it up pretty bad.

Now I need to buy another one and I can't find it anywhere online. I don't even know what the proper name for this is. I've checked ATV Eagle parts, PartsForScooters, and several other sites with no luck.

I also went to Pro Caliber with the piece I needed replaced and the associate said, "I don't even know what this is called... to look it up. Maybe under wheels, or engine, or speedometer, but I think this is not an independent part you can buy..."

My scooter is a Chinese Tank Touring 150 A. Is this part available anywhere, single or in a kit of other parts?

The business loans seem to be useful for people, which want to start their organization. As a fact, it's very easy to receive a financial loan.

That's the unit that fits onto the front wheel. You should only have to put it between the fork and wheel, screw in the speedometer cable and it will work again.

Did you try calling Eagle parts? 1-888-400-3253 and ask for John. He's the best parts guy in the universe. I would think the whole speedometer sensor should be available and be cheap.

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...
