I have a JM Star 150cc (Tank Clone)

I am trying to find out what is the purpose of the two very small bulbs that are located below the main headlight bulbs. They have turned my headlight reflector black above them. Could I just eliminate them?

Know of any service repair shops? I have a JM Star F8 and don't know what kind of motor it has?

When I don't know I always say the same thing. Go to www.scootdawg.com forum and ask there. Somebody with a similar model will be able to tell you what they're for.

I do not have any switch on my headlights. When the engine is running, the lights are on and when there is no AC from the alternator, the lights are off. These small light bulbs are not very bright, and I thought they might be some kind of voltage regulator or something, but I just do not know. Glenn

On my mopeds I have what would be the equivalent of daytime running lights. I can run without the headlight on but have a small light illuminating the headlight so it looks legal to the "Authorities". That's probably what you have. Do you have a three position switch for your headlights or do they just come on automatically? It sounds like you have DRL bulbs in there that can be removed if they bother you.

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...

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.
