Lifan Motorcycles Wholesale - Review

I think he skipped to avoid honoring his 3 yr. warranty, at least I have not been able to find him. I bought a 2007 JM Star "Street Racer" 150cc scooter. It had a broken exhaust stud in the head which I had to drill out and oversize tap out. The battery would not take any charge.

I modified the compartment under the floorboard (left side) to take a 7amp battery and installed 2 wheelchair batteries, and have never had any battery trouble since. (They were dead once, when I forgot to turn off the hand warmers.)

I just finished welding the exhaust pipe back together after it broke in two. I have replaced the spark plug wire twice (and always carry a spare coil and wire). A camshaft bearing went out and I replaced the cam with a A-9 cam and at the same time installed a Uni Filter and was surprised at the increased performance. Now it will do an easy 65mph and goes uphill with ease.

I have 8100 miles on it, and usually get about 78 mpg (going not over 55mph and using 90 octane). I am a retired tool maker and was an aircraft mechanic years ago, so I do not have any trouble maintaining the thing. I would not recommend it for someone who is not mechanically inclined, as there will probably be quite a bit of maintenance involved.

If you want something better, maybe you should look at a Honda, as I rode a Honda 175 street bike for 10 years without any maintenance at all. (a 1973 CB) I am real happy with my scooter and will continue to ride it (weather here in Mich. permitting) Glenn

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.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
