Is there any way to comfirm that my Carino 150 le Chinese scooter is 149cc?

I own a Carino LE 150 scooter and would like to know how to figure out if the engine size is actually only 149cc.

PLEASE NOTE: Jon... I posted this question for you, but if you want answers, it would help if you would provide more information in the future. We are not mind readers. Why do you want to know this? Is there some kind of issue you're dealing with?

Also, please use proper capitalization and punctuation in the future or I will have to delete your submissions. Thanks for your cooperation.

Information that I was given when I purchased my scooter was that in California a 150cc scooter is freeway legal--A 149cc scooter is not legal on the freeways. So that 1cc is critical if you are ever stopped by an officer. Check on the Identification plate. Mine is located under the seat.

If you don't mind ;). If the scooter is not too old you may find the size on the scooter mfg tag. FYI the engine is 149 something. 150 just sounds nicer.
You can always take the engine apart and measure the cylinder walls. But for me, I say just enjoy the ride.

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...
