What should I check on my Motobravo scooter if my gas gauge and speedometer are not working?

by Mike
(Medford, Oregon)

I purchased a 50cc 2008 Motobravo scooter and gas gauge and speedometer are not working, what should I check? After purchasing this scooter, I noticed the gauges were not working.

I found a blown fuse, and quickly changed that, but still to no avail. The battery was also dead and had to crank start it, I will probably replace the battery as it does not charge up even after running it for extended periods.

I would appreciate any help you might be able to give me; I have never owned a scooter before. Thank you!

Sincerely, Nogo

Mine did the samething and i took it to the dealership. it was the "rectifier" is what he called it but it was a part that recharges the battery and runs the bike. I worked fine after that.

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.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
