Why is my relatively new scooter having trouble starting?
I'm having trouble starting my 50cc scooter. It doesn't happen all the time and has just started and I have only 1100 miles on it, only 9 months old. It turns over but takes several times before it eventually starts.
And other than adding oil, I haven't done any maintenance yet and not sure what maintenance I need to do at this point. So I guess that's two questions.

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.
