Or maybe I’m entirely wrong – perhaps you’re excited about getting your hands dirty (both literally AND metaphorically)?
Either way, one thing’s for sure – maintaining your scooter is a must.
But if this is brand new territory for you, you might feel intimidating. So, to help you get started, here are 4 easy scooter maintenance tasks.
Job #1: Replacing the Air Filter
Job #2: Changing the Oil and Oil Filter
All you need is:
- A spanner set or socket handle set
- A pan or container to catch the old oil in
- An oil filter socket
Job #3: Checking Your Tire Pressure
It doesn’t take a genius to know why – your tires are what keeps you on the road, and underinflated tires can cause everything from poor fuel economy to increased stopping distance.
Fortunately, checking your tire pressure is easy – you only need a tire pressure gauge and a tire of course).
Job #4: Replace Your Spark Plugs
That’s assuming, of course, that you replace your old ones once they’ve become worn out or covered with oil and soot.
Fortunately, removing a spark plug is almost like removing a regular screw or bolt – and it’s all possible with a socket handle.
