Most Common Service

Diagnostic - Won't Start
Your scooter won't start. There is nothing more frustrating than a scooter that won't start. There are many possible causes to a no-start problem. Our service technicians will look into your scooter and determine the cause of why it's not wanting to start. From the diagnosis they will be able to further recommend solutions to get you back on the road again.
Diagnostic
- Won't Run
If your scooter starts but won't rev or run well, there are basically five most probable areas of trouble and could be a combination of problems stemming from fuel flow, spark, Air/vacuum leaks, the carburetor and with the valve clearance. Our service technicians will look into your scooter and determine the cause of why it's not wanting to run as intended. From the diagnosis they will be able to further recommend solutions to get you back on the road again.
Oil service
Service is recommended during the first 300 miles and then every 1,000 miles thereafter. We'll change the engine oil, check lights, tire pressure and inspect brakes. Note: An Oil Filter maybe required for some models at an additional cost.
2 Stroke Oil Service
Service is recommended during the first 300 miles and then every 1,000 miles thereafter. We'll change the gear oil and spark plug, check filters, lights, tire pressure and inspect brakes.
Basic Tune Up
For the health of your scooter and preventative maintenance, our service technicians will go a little deeper into your ride by inspecting the intake manifold, vacuum lines and fuel lines for hardening and cracking. We will check the turn signal switches, horn and starter switches and brake light switches. We'll change the fuel filter, engine oil, gear oil, check lights, tire pressure, valve stems and inspect brakes.
Valve Adjustment
An oil leak under your scooter is commonly caused by the Valve Cover Gasket getting hot and wearing down, this is a wear part and needs to be replaced. While we are there we will adjust the Valves.
Valve clearance can affect the way the engine runs. This is the clearance between the camshaft and the valve stem. If it is too large, the valve won't open all the way (and you'll get a loud "clattering" noise) and if it is too small (or non-existent), the valve may not properly close. Either way is a problem. You either won't get fuel/air into the cylinder properly or you won't get good compression and/or exhaust and the valve may overheat and suffer damage. To adjust the Valves the engine MUST BE COLD so we prefer to have your scooter for a sleep over /overnight stay.

Transport services are generally available through your insurance company or road side assistance service.  We also recommend Pegasus Towing (208)890-5774 or Abyss Towing (208)288-0471.

Carburetor Clean -
The carburetor is the most common problem area in all small engines. The carburetor is where the fuel mixes with the air to be burnt. When an engine sits for a long period of time without being run, the fuel will start to break down resulting in clogging up the jets We will remove the carburetor and clean it, including the jets. We replace the fuel in your tank with fresh stabilized fuel and change the fuel filter after cleaning the carburetor otherwise you will just recreate your troubles.
Belt Service 
-
The scooter's engine will rev up but the scooter won't move forward. It's possible that the Belt broke. The Transmission Belt (CVT Belt) is a common wear part with the Belt life being anywhere from 2500 to 10,000 miles. We will remove the Transmission Cover and change the Belt, Roller Weights, inspect the variator and the clutch while we are there. Additional charge for parts
