Is there an oil filter on Znen Chinese scooters?

by Amanda

I own a Znen 150cc scooter. I want to change the oil and my manual alludes to an oil filter but I cannot find it. Does it exist? If so, where can I locate it? Thank you.

Your Znen scooter oil filter is located at the bottom of the engine crankcase. Below where you check your oil, there is a drain plug, where you drain the oil for an oil change.

When you unscrew the plug slowly and catch the oil filter and spring, have a pan under it to catch the oil, the oil filter is seated above the plug with a spring.

The filter and spring should be cleaned and reinserted and seated the same way it came out and the drain plug screwed tight so there are no leaks.

Most small scooters have a screen where you drain the oil and sometimes it is mistakenly called a filter. Its purpose is to catch small metal burrs.
For most scooters the oil is truly the only filter and that is why you should change often. I recommend every 500 mile or 3 months whichever comes first.

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.
