Hsun HS150T-2 Scooter Review

by D Morgan
(North Wales, UK)

I bought a brand new cheap Chinese scooter over the internet (supplier in Leeds). The basic shape is identical with many other types of Chinese bikes. First the petrol gauge wasn't working, supplier didn't want to know, then the main stand started bending so the rear wheel wouldn't clear the floor.

They coughed up for another Chinese type, bit stronger this time, but does not return up tight which means it catches on tight corners.

The battery failed after 6 months, now I've noticed that there is lateral play on the main pivot from engine assembly to frame,one long bolt goes through the engine block then through 2 bushes finished with a single nut, holding the rear wheel and moving it sideways back and forth shows quite a lot of play, is this normal?

On a motorbike there should be no lateral play only up and down. The local bike garage won't touch anything Chinese, so I'm left to search for someone who might know something about this problem, if indeed it is.

The tires are made in Taiwan but are poorly moulded, which gives a wobbly ride,the engine is very game tho' and is more than capable of 65 mph.

Frame paint is a joke,as no paint is applied inside tubing and so rust is there from day one, I used Hammerrite on most of the welds and seems to do the trick, pity the manufacturers can't use the same, or is it I suspect a limited lifespan built in?

Cheap ignition and lid locks look like they've just come out of a Christmas cracker. I'd love to know what metal it is, biscuit tin metal comes to mind. Matching the paint is also great fun--there is none available!

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.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
