Shenke YY 50 QT - 50cc Scooter Review

by Five-0
(Maui, Hawaii)

My Schenke moped lasted about 1 day before breaking down... first hard to start then gas just started pouring out overflow tube till no gas left... Carb was removed and floats cleaned... repairs lasted until first time moped not started for a couple days then won't start again...

Now my moped has died and rigor mortis has set in, it starts for a few seconds if I'm lucky, then stalls out again... in my opinion they are not worth the scrap metal they were made out of!

Oh I almost forgot, following a right rain while making a slow turn at 5 mph into a parking lot the moped back tires spun around and became the front tires, I was thrown off and badly injured my shoulder. My shoulder still hurts 3 months later from the spill... I wish I could sue and get my money back...

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 to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...


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.
