What happened to my lights?

by George Jennings
(North Carolina)

I just replaced the stator in my 150cc Roketa scooter with a high end stator, now I have no lights. Just my stop light and my clock. I put in a new rectifier and replaced the CDI.

I checked all the connections and everything is good and snug. What can I do to cure this problem? Any reply will be welcome. Thank you.

Your friend is correct. If the voltage regulator was bad it could have let too much voltage through and fried all the bulbs. A new one should solve your problem.

I had to replace the old stator. It burned out. I had a friend tell me that I might have to replace the new voltage regulator with another one. He has several that were bad when he bought them. A quick note: Every bulb on the scooter is burnt out except the stop light, turn signals, and clock light. The bike starts and runs good.

Check for voltage at the battery. Start the scooter and see if you have 13.5 volts across the battery while it's running. If not you may have a defective stator or bad stator coil. It happens. Your clock and stop light run off the battery. I would also put the old stator back in and see what happens if I could.

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.
