Speedo goes crazy NEW
by: Dingo

Can anyone tell me if there is a fix for my speedo needle racing all over the gauge, but my odometer just cruisers like it should. Cable seems ok, front wheel hub seems intact. Haven't much hair left on my head trying to work it out. Cheers.

other possible solution
by: Cody

If your like that other guy and your cable isn't broke then its the actual hub on the wheel itself. just go to your nearest shop with the old one in hand and see if they have what you got.

Next step?
by: T

I have a problem with my speedo as well. The wire is not broken, and the needle wiggles if I simply spin the cable with my finger, but I can't seem to get the cable to engage with the wheel.

Is there some trick to it?

Check Cable
by: Jim Zeiser

Most times a broken cable is the problem. Disconnect it rom the bottom and pull out the inner wire to see if it's broken.

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...
