Where is the oil filter (screen) on my 2009 Chongqing Bashan VIP 49cc scooter?

I need to change the oil on this scooter. The owner's manual refers to an oil filter that is a screen that just needs to be cleaned. However, the manual does not say where the filter/screen is located.

Oil Plug
by: Loosegrit

These scooters have no oil filter as we think. The screen is located at the oil plug. When you unscrew the plug at the bottom of the engine the little screen should come out with the plug. If not put your finger in the hole and pull it out gently. If no holes just wipe it off and it is ready to go back in.

Remember the oil itself is the only filter. It finds the dirt and holds it. Not good for the engine.

You need to change the oil every 500 miles or 3 months... whatever comes first. If you want your scooter to last, that is.

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.

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...
