Review of a Peace Sports 840 VIP 150cc Scooter

by Lisa
(North Carolina)

The price on my Peace Sports 840 VIP 150cc scooter was right. The scooter needs to be checked regularly. I would advise to anyone purchasing a new scooter, with less than 100 miles, to check the scooter after every 20 miles for loose screws and bolts.


The person this scooter was purchased for was not aware of what vibration can do to screws and bolts. The screw in the fuel line fell out within the first couple of days, causing the scooter to cut off. No problem, the screw was found on the ground where the scooter cut off and was reinstalled.

The next problem was six months later. A couple of the brackets on the muffler broke off. Again, I feel this is because the bolts holding the muffler on were not checked.

What I am trying to say in this review is if you purchase any scooter, pay attention to the scooter. Follow the owner's manual directions and service your scooter on schedule like the dealer recommends. Check screws and bolts regularly. If the scooter starts to slow down or does not seem to have the get up and go any more have the belt checked.

Make time to call the dealer or your scooter mechanic if you feel something is wrong. You will have a new friend to help make your scooter last longer.

Use caution if you drop the scooter. This scooter was dropped on the slick road markings and the key broke off in the ignition.

Treat any scooter with more attention than you would a car if you want it to last.

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.
