Regular Scooter Maintenance Tips

Scooters and mopeds should be taken to a motorcycle mechanic like those who work at Wildside instead of a regular auto mechanic. We're more likely to have all the necessary tools at hand and also be more familiar with the working parts. This includes all kinds of engines including the special GY6 designs.

Getting the most longevity out of your scooter requires regular maintenance. Here's a list of the basic scooter parts that should be regularly inspected and serviced, replaced, tightened or topped up. It mostly refers to gas scooters but some of these parts also need to be checked in the electric scooters.

  • Spark Plug - When you ride your scooter, carbon builds up on the spark plug which means it needs to be cleaned out or replaced.
  • Air Filter - The air filter keeps dirt and impurities out of the intake and carburetor. They should be cleaned every 1000km and replaced every 5000 km. Consult your manual or your technician.
  • Fuel Filter - Removes any impurities remaining in the fuel for better combustion.
  • Belt - As your belt wears out, you will lose top speed so it will eventually need replacing.
  • Clutch and Rollers - As rollers wear, they will start to square and you lose top speed. It will also affect your take-off on acceleration.
  • Oil Change - After the initial break-in of the scooter, an oil change can be done with synthetic oil or with your regular 10w-40 (most common for scooters). Oil change should be done every 2000 km.
  • Gear Case Oil Change - Change this when it is dirty or top it up when low.
  • Throttle Freeplay - The throttle needs a little free movement so that when you turn corners, the scooter doesn't accelerate and you end up doing a wheelie (oops!). Most freeplay is limited to 1/8" movement on scooters.
  • Valve Adjustment - Engine pistons need to stay in the correct timing for optimal performance and fuel efficiency.
  • Carburetor Adjustment - Your scooter's Air/Gas mixture and idle should be measured and adjusted for proper performance.
  • Carburetor Servicing - The carb is completely disassembled and rebuilt to check all the jetting and main holes.
  • Ignition Timing - Serviced only if the cam shaft needs adjustment.
  • Compression Test - Make sure your combustion is good. Check when the scooter has a hard time starting and/or exhibits poor performance.
  • Tire Pressure - This one is fairly easy for you to manage alone. Tire pressure should be stated in your manual, but most need to be around 200kpa to 225kpa (29psi to 32 psi)
  • Brake Adjustment - During scooter repairs, the mechanic will usually check for safety items like your brake fluid, and alignment of brakes. However, it is always a good idea to ask them if they need replacing and if there is any noticeable wear and tear.
