Who manufactures the Venus MS scooters?

by Kathryn
(Gainesville, FL)

I am having a lot of problems with my 2008 Venus MS, which I bought brand new last August. The dealership where I purchased it is not doing much to help, other than tell me that I don't know what I'm doing.

Within two months of purchase, it wouldn't start unless the gas tank was completely full. Then, it quit working completely. They looked it over and said that there was nothing wrong.

I paid to have the valves adjusted (less than 400
miles), they brought it back (pick up and delivery fee), and it quit again the next day. They took it back, told me there was nothing wrong, then said that the wire harness needed to be replaced and needed a new battery. Ordered it, said it was the wrong harness. Retrofitted it to my model and brought it back (pick up and delivery fee). It quit working after a month.

They won't replace it. They won't trade it for another one. I keep spending money on pick up and delivery. Now, the owner is telling me that they don't make the wire harness for the 2008 Venus MS anymore.

I want to write the manufacturer, but I don't know who to contact. Can you help? Thanks!

Any other scooter repair shops in town?
by: Anonymous

Hi - your shop does not sound helpful. Any other scooter repair shops, or individuals (check Craigslist) in your area? I'd find someone else.

I'm a bit confused by the MS on your scooter. Keeway made the Venus which was a 2 stroke 50cc scooter. Keeway had rather good quality for a mainland China made bike (quality control is an issue on the mainland). If it is a Keeway, it should still have parts availability.

If your scooter is a Keeway Venus...you were ripped of with the valve adjustment - you can't adjust the valves on a 2 stroke scooter. However, if they did adjust the valves, you have a 4 stroke scooter and it's not a Keeway Venus.

I'd check here and find the manufacturer based on VIN: http://2strokebuzz.com/scooter-vins

Then, I'd go to scootdawg.com and post on the forum if your scooter is other than a Keeway... heck even if it is - there are a lot of folks who work on their own scooters on the board who can help you repair or find a repair person in your area.

Good luck, and keep us posted.

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.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

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