So you buy a scooter and something breaks. Who is going to fix it? Well, if you've bough in person from a Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Vespa or similar Japanese/Italian scooter dealer, they will. They'll have access to parts, shop manuals and they will have mechanics trained to fix your model of scooter. All you have to do is pay them!
But what if you have bought a Chinese Scooter via mail order (off the web or eBay)? Well, there's no dealer to fall back on. Even if whoever you bought your scooter from is more than an importer, they're likely in another state and shipping scooters back and forth across the country would be very expensive. So what do you do?
You can try contacting local motorcycle (or better still, scooter) repair shops, but many of them won't be very enthusiastic about working on a Chinese Scooter. First they won't have any sort of shop manual. Second they won't have easy access to spare parts and third, they really don't want to take a chance on fixing what's wrong only to get blamed for something else that breaks a week later. Some may work on your scooter, but it's certainly not a sure bet.

You might also get some help from a lawn mower repair shop. They are used to working on small engines and the engine in a scooter isn't all that different from the engine in a lawn mower. You can also try snowmobile and ATV repair shops. If you're lucky you may find one willing to try their hand at Chinese Scooter repair.
CVT (transmission) belt. Price ~ $40. Belt life anywhere from 2500 to 10,000 miles
If all else fails, it's up to you, which is why it's a good idea to have at least some mechanical aptitude and experience if you are a Chinese Scooter owner. There are several websites which sell spare parts and you can find quite a lot of repair and replacement items listed on eBay.
The major difficulty is usually in figuring out exactly what you have, so you know which spare part to order. Not everything will be in stock of course, so you may be waiting several weeks for a part. Having a Chinese Scooter as your only means of transport probably isn't a great idea. It's not a bad idea to keep a few spares (such as a spare spark plug and CVT belt) on hand, just in case you need them (and eventually, you will). It's a good idea to remove the CVT cover on your new scooter and read the number on the belt BEFORE you need to change it. Belt sizes vary, even on the same nominal scooter "model" and by the time it fails, the size markings may have worn off! The belt size is usually three numbers such as "835-20-30". This would mean the belt is 835mm long, 20mm wide and has a cross section with a 30° bevel angle.
The best way to avoid needing repairs is regular maintenance, which means changing the oil regularly, changing the fuel filter and spark plug at the proper intervals, checking the CVT belt and air filter, checking the tires and going around the scooter at least once a month and making sure that all the bolts are tight (especially the bolts holding the muffler on). Use the recommended grade of gas (usually higher than 90 octane for most Chinese scooters) and add fuel stabilizer if the scooter isn't going to be driven for a while.
Though you won't find individual repair manuals for every different Chinese scooter, they are all pretty similar and many use the same engines and transmission parts.. There are a couple of books which may help and they are listed on the left. The Haynes guide is probably the best general reference for the repair of "generic" (i.e. Chinese) scooters. The "Complete Idiot's Guide to Motor Scooters" is pretty basic and really doesn't give much detailed information, though it's not a bad introduction to scooters if you really know nothing at all about them.

SINGAPORE: Three men have been arrested for dangerous driving after they were caught riding their electric scooters at speeds of more than 100kmh.
Police said that the three, aged between 32 and 37, were arrested for dangerous driving along Nicoll Drive last Saturday (Oct 14) at 2.05am. Investigations are ongoing.
Channel NewsAsia understands that the e-scooters were travelling at speeds of more than 100kmh.
Facebook group Use Your RoadSense reported that the highest speed clocked by the e-scooters was 130kmh, although Facebook users who commented on the post expressed incredulity that the personal mobility devices could reach such speeds.
"All road users are urged to drive and ride safely and to abide strictly to traffic rules and regulations," police said. "Such dangerous and inconsiderate riding behaviour has to be taken seriously as it endangers the rider and other road users. The Police will not hesitate to take firm action against such offenders."
There were 90 accidents involving power-assisted bicycles and personal mobility devices for the first six months of this year, resulting in four deaths and about 90 injuries.

in Hong Kong, any sort of vehicle with propulsion other than human powered is considered a motor vehicle, and must be registered as a car or motor cycle. In practical terms, this makes any kind of e-bike illegal, even pedal assist bikes. You can use it in your living room or backyard, if you are wealthy enough to have such an area.
on the other hand, stiff and police state type of regulation bans any kind of modern light transportation. Trucks and buses spewing out clouds of black smoke can be seen all the time, while taking a (non-assisted) bike is not very practical in the hot and humid Hong Kong summer. An electric bike would make it realistic for many people to commute on bikes, even when it is too hot otherwise to move around.
Electric bikes, no-no, skates and skate boards while allowed are usually not welcome, even in parks and other suitable areas.
- Pedal assist bikes
- Electric bikes
- Child toys with any sort of motor
This is on public "roads", which is interpreted quite wide. In a convention, an exhibition centre, in a closed off area, Segways were being rented out - not allowed!
First offenders are invited up to a 3 month jail sentence and a fine, second time offenders 6 month jail.
The dual faced fight against pollution in Hong Kong is pulling in both directions. On one hand, pollution must be decreased,
Electric Bike Range Tips
Okay, let’s get the most obvious one out of the way. Make sure your battery is fully charged. The reason I mention this is because sometimes it is easy to forget about charging your battery after a hard day at work. Create a routine so that you immediately plug in your battery when you get home.
Another big tip is to pedal harder at the right time. A lot of energy is consumed when you accelerate from a stop. If you pedal hard to get your bike off the line this will help conserve your battery energy. Additionally, hills take a lot of energy so pedaling a little harder on the hills will help improve your range.
Buy a second battery? If you have a really long commute or ride route that you like to do it may be worth buying a second battery to add to your bike. Some electric bike manufacturers offer the option of adding a second battery to double your range. Check with your local shop or e-bike manufacturer for more info.
Keep your tire pressure up. This will make a big difference in how much energy (electric & human) is required to move you and your e-bike around. Low tire pressure can make your electric bike feel sluggish. For normal city style e-bikes I recommend a tire pressure of 50-60 psi. Don’t over inflate your tires though because it can lead to a very rough ride! Here is a floor pump I recommend.
Take care of your battery! If you can, store your battery at room temperature. Batteries don’t like really cold or hot temperatures. In general it is a good idea to charge your battery often to keep it topped off. If you don’t ride your electric bike much in the winter, store your battery fully charged and charge it every couple of months. Try not to leave it plugged in for more than 24 hrs.
Are you concerned about your electric bike’s range? Would you like to know some tricks for extending your e-bike range when you have that extra errand to run but don’t have that much charge left in your battery?
Electric bike range is a common concern among e-bikers and I would like to offer some tips that will help you make the most of your electric bike ride. Some of these tips are obvious but I have thrown in some additional tips that may help you add a few more miles or kilometers to your e-bike range.
Pedal harder! This may be obvious too but it needs to be mentioned. For instance you may need to run some extra errands and realize that you don’t have that much juice (charge in your battery) left. You could reduce the assist setting (or use less throttle) and pedal more to compensate for a low battery. I have limped my e-bike home this way without totally draining the battery.
Take it easy and enjoy a slow ride. Wind resistance can really drain you and your battery’s energy. If you need to extend your range, riding a little slower will reduce the wind drag. Oh yeah and riding slower is usually safer!
Consider a second charger. If you have a long commute to work and errands to run, you may need more range than your battery can provide. You could have a charger at work so that you can recharge during the day. And if your boss is concerned about the electricity bill you can tell them it will cost pennies to charge your e-bike battery!
Replace your old battery. If you have had your e-bike and battery for a while, the amount of energy your battery can hold will most likely have decreased. I recommend replacing your battery once the decreased range gets annoying. Your local electric bike shop can help you with this or you could contact your e-bike manufacturer.
Use the regenerative braking feature. Some electric bike systems have a regenerative braking feature (Bionx for example) that turns the motor into a generator in order to act like a brake and put a little bit of charge back into your battery. Typically this is activated by a sensor on one of the brake levers (usually the rear brake lever). Please note that there is debate in the e-bike world as to how much energy is actually recaptured using regenerative braking.
I hope these tips help you to improve your electric bike range. The best way is to implement these tips today and make them a habit.
Do you have any questions on these tips? Do you have some electric bike range tips of your own that you would like to share with the PEV SINGAPORE community? Please leave them in the comment section below.
