How do I replace the headlight bulb in my Roketa MC 54-150 scooter?

I'm trying to find out how to get the old headlight bulb out on my Roketa MC 54-150 scooter and replace it, but cannot tell exactly how to go about it.

How much of the cowling do I need to remove before I get to the bulb? Can it be changed by taking off the head light fixture behind the head light?

The head light bulb can be changed from the backside without taking the front off as I have done it but use caution and have someone else to help hold the light assembly. Good Luck

Replacing Head light bulbs in a Roketa 150
by: Dale

There is no simple fix to this. All of the front fairings must be removed. That means the front plastic grill, the windscreen, the plastic cover over the instrument panel, all the screws that hold on the plastic farings.

It is not a difficult task, once you determine that it all has to be removed. Then it is just a matter of taking it completely apart and keeping the screws, bolts and nuts in a safe place.

The top two screws on step plates on the floor boards have to be removed and then the two screws that hold the front plastic fairing have to be removed. Once that is done, then the front end basically lifts front ward and loose from the rest of the bike.

Be careful not to pull the fairing too far or the turn signal light wires may come apart. Once that is done, you can get to the back of the head lamp casings.

There are 2 screws on the back of the lamp casing which allow you to get access to the bulb base. Once they are removed, then the lamp has to be turned about a half of turn to release the old bulb. Then replace the bulb.

Because it is such a pain in removing all this, I just replaced all 4 bulbs at one time, the two headlights and the two running lights. Now it all goes back together in the reverse manner.

There are no manuals out there that I can find, so it really is trial and error, but there really isn't that much that you can do wrong. Just be patient with yourself and take each part off completely. If I can be of further assistance, let me know. Dale

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.
