Most Common Service
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.
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 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.
