What is wrong with my scooter?

by Tylor
(Virginia Beach, VA, United States)

My back tire of my scooter wont turn when I give it gas. Yesterday i was riding, and I heard a "pop" sound and I started to slow down. I pull off to the side of the road and my back tire wouldn't turn as I gave it gas.

I turned off my scooter and turned it back on hoping it would get the tire going, but it didn't turn. I'm thinking it could be the belt, but I don't want to start taking apart my scooter and mess something else up.

Any suggestions or ideas? I'd prefer not to take it to a shop, I don't have the money to spend, so I was hoping someone could help me out.

Scooter wont go.

It sounds like your drve/CVT belt has broke. Thay are pretty easy to replace. Just take off the drive cover and use a impact wrench and remove the roller weights and put your new belt on and put everything back together. Be sure to remove all of the old belt.

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.
