Will I be OK just changing the oil and air filter in a new 150cc Jonway scooter?

I just bought a new 150cc Jonway scooter... the dealer told me all I have to do is change the oil after 300 miles, but I'm worried about the gear oil.

The manual I have does not have a good picture, so I'm not sure how to do it. But I think I should be OK. Please let me know what stuff needs to be done so I can keep this bike nice... I'm at 209 miles.

Gear Oil
by: Jim Zeiser

I changed the gear oil on my GY6 at 180 miles (300 km.) as most manuals tell you to. Metal chips and stuff. The drain plug is underneath and is a 10mm head bolt. The filler is also a 10mm head bolt. All the rest back there are 8mm. You drain the oil and then put the drain bolt back. I squirt 85W-90 oil in the filler hole until it overflows. Once it stops running out, put the bolt back in and you're good to 1000 miles.

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.
