Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Gas prices go up and down, but mostly up, and that trend is unlikely to change any time soon. To win the battle at the gas pump, more and more commuters and recreational riders are turning to motor scooters. Though scooters are entertaining to ride and provide accessible, economical mobility, they do have specific maintenance requirements and repair procedures to keep them on the road. How to Repair Your Scooter provides step-by-step instruction for repairing and maintaining each of the scooter’s various mechanical systems, including:
  • Fuel-Induction
  • Exhaust
  • Electrical components
  • Transmission and final Drive
  • Suspension Brakes
  • Bodywork
With extensive projects for repairing and maintaining both two- and four-stroke scooters as well as detailed troubleshooting guides, this book is an essential component of any scooter rider’s tool kit.

The manual met me expectations. Although the scooters depicted are of necessity generic, the instructions and photographs are clear and informative.

Interesting book, gives some basics on maintenance but not as good as a manual for your model. Take a pass.

the book was ok wonderful color pictures but it lacked in the actual .how to do the repair. it wasn't very clear.it left a lot guess work for those who might not be mechanicly incline....so I'd wouldn't say it was a book for easy repair manual because it lacked that..
