headlight and tail light burn out at the same time NEW
by: robert

I am a technician for a scooter shop in utah, and run into this problem every once in a while. The general cause for them to burn out is due to the voltage regulator or regulator/rectifier not function properly. It is no longer regulating the voltage going to the lighting circuit, and the excess voltage causes the bulbs to burn out. You may notice that the high beam and the brake light still function, this is only because they are controlled by the rider. If left on the high beam would likely burn out as well.

If your lights just stopped working all together, but are not burned out, I am currently looking into common problems causing this issue.

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.

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