How to remove the magneto
by: SeeEmcoming

First you have to get the nut (17mm) off. You'll have to hold the flywheel somehow to do this. A strap wrench will work or there's a special tool which engages those two holes in the flywheel to do it.A much easier method is to simply use an impact gun (electric or air),with this method you don't even have to hold the flywheel.Once the nut's off you are going to need the special tool which threads into those threads in the flywheel (note:there left hand so to insert tool turn counter clockwise).Now tighten down on the tool's center bolt while holding the tool on the flats provided for that purpose with a open end wrench(21mm as I recall).By the way ,apply some oil to the threads of the tool so as not to gall them.The flywheel should pop off easily,now the rest is self evident.

You need a special little tool to do it or your going to have to beat it off with a hammer.

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.
