How to make the center stand work easier

Lift extention tube

Lift extention tube

In a prior posting I said what I planned to do to make it easier to get my scooter up on its center stand.

My solution was to build an extension on to the stand's bracket thereby making a longer lever-arm and less effort to lift the scooter.

In order to get the rectangular tube on to the bracket, I used a lump hammer so that the tube conformed to the bracket's shape. The tube easily comes off the bracket for easy storing elsewhere when not in use.

Hi Ron,

Great idea and an exceptionally good photo. Any chance you can be my local mechanic for future tunups and repairs? I'm trying to add an additional mirror that extends farther out so I can see around my "he-man" bulk (haha). Any good ideas with easy to follow directions for the mechanically impaired?

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.
