Type of bulb Peace 50cc
by: Jenni

I have the "Peace" 50cc (49.5cc) made by Bashan, it uses a 35W-12V rounded bulb. Parts for scooters website has them. I am going crazy now that I have mine trying to figure out how to change it. I found this on the internet (it is cited at the bottom of the 3 different instructions) I believe my peace is a type 3 change and needs the entire front plate off but I'm nervous about pulling atg it.

Type 1

• 1
Unscrew the screws anchoring the plastic headlight protector onto the body of the scooter. There will be two to six screws, and they will be located around the perimeter of the scooter's headlight.
• 2
Remove the outer plastic headlight protector by carefully popping it out of its plastic moorings.
• 3
Unscrew the old bulb and replace it with your new bulb.
• 4
Reattach the outer plastic headlight protector and rescrew the anchoring screws.
Plastic Headlight Protector With Clips

Type 2
• 1
Remove the outer plastic headlight protector by unlatching the plastic clips that hold it into place.
• 2
Unscrew the old bulb and replace it with your new bulb.
• 3
Reattach the outer plastic headlight protector by latching the plastic clips that hold it into place.
Replacing the Bulb Compartment

Type 3
• 1
Unscrew the anchoring screws holding the entire headlight compartment using a hex or standard screwdriver.
• 2
Remove the entire headlight compartment by gently pulling it free from the body of the scooter. The back of the compartment will be connected to the electrical systems of the scooter through either a plug or a series of wires which you will need to disconnect.
• 3
Insert the replacement headlight compartment and anchor it to the body by rescrewing the anchoring screws.

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.

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.
