Re: the best chinese scooter?

How do you propose the first owner caused this in just 2000 miles? I could see an owner wrecking a higher milage scooter that uses a bit of oil by not checking it, but in the first 2000 miles an owner isn't really supposed to do anything, so short of draining the oil or something I don't see how thi...

Re: Crickets

Seems like the spammers are pretty much gone. Hopefully it lasts. Fingers crossed.

Thanks for the kind words about the new look. I think the smaller logo is better and less brown.

Re: Yamaha Razz 50cc Battery

I didn't realize you're in South Africa. Unfortunately I don't know anything about buying batteries there, but the UB4L-B battery should be available for a low price from whoever does sell them in S. Africa.

Re: Yamaha Razz 50cc Battery

You can pretty much use any 12V battery that has enough amp hours and fits in your scooter, but sticking with the right shape is probably easiest. The UB4L-B is a replacement option that has the same dimensions/capacity. Its nice to buy a decent battery (e.g. YUASA) but there's also something to sai...

Re: Crickets

Okay. The forum logo is now a link back to the main site and I'm pretty happy with the colors, so it's essentially finished. I think the increased use of greys and less bright red makes the forum a bit easier on the eyes. If you guys have any requests get them in soon while I still remember how to d...

Re: Crickets

Alright, I'm back on the project. Forum is coming along and it looks like the spammers are stopped at least for now. I'm going to tweak the layout a bit more soon and try to make the top logo a link back to the main site.

Re: Crickets

Looks like the holidays are packed/busy for me, so I'll get on top of the forum mods in another week. The spammers should be stopped now.

Re: Crickets

Okay it sorta looks like the forum again. I've got some more work to do (getting rid of the blue, background colors etc) but if you've got any requests now is a good time to get them in since I'll probably forget how to tweak all this stuff once a few weeks goes by.

Re: Crickets

Okay will do. I switched the main site to a white background a year or so ago and I'll switch the forum now.

Hopefully I can also get rid of that silly question that is now appearing under the avatars ("what year did....") that was used for registration only.

Re: Crickets

Okay I'm doing some big updates. Should stop the spambots. It might be a day or two until I get everything looking normally but the site should be working.

Re: slow speed

Did it slow down when you loosened the nut? Or just gradually over time?

Put the scooter on the center stand and see if you can spin the rear wheel by hand. It should turn pretty easily with only a little resistance. If it's hard to turn you've probably got brake rub.
