“Take care of your scooter, and it will take care of you!”

OIL CHANGES

The best way to ensure a better running, longer lasting engine, is to change your scooter’s oil regularly.  Lobo Scooter recommends your initial oil change be done after 300 miles.  In fact, we offer this service FREE to everyone who buys a new scooter from us.  After the initial oil change, we recommend that you change your oil every 1,000 miles, thereafter.  Lobo Scooter recommends using 10w40 oil.

SPARK PLUGS

When you ride, the spark plug can develop a carbon build up.  Lobo Scooter recommends you replace your spark plugs every 2,000 miles – or every other oil change.

AIR FILTER

Albuquerque is a windy, gritty place. Your air filter keeps all that grit from entering your engine. So, clean your air filter every 500 miles and replace every 3,000 miles.

FUEL FILTER

Fuel filters remove impurities that get into your tank, before they get into your carburetor and then your engine’s cylinders, where they can scratch your cylinder.  Lobo Scooter recommends that you change your fuel filter every 2,000 miles.

BELT

As your belt wears out, you will lose top speed.  When it breaks, you’re stuck without a ride.  Replace your belt every 2,000 to 3,000 miles.

CLUTCH and ROLLERS

When roller bearings wear, they become more square.  This affects both top speed and acceleration.  If you’re experiencing either, have your rollers checked to see if they need replacement.

VALVE ADJUSTMENT

Check every 2,000 miles or every other oil change.

TIRE PRESSURE

Low tire pressure will reduce your top speed, reduce gas mileage, diminish handling and increase likelihood of getting a flat.  Check regularly.  Recommended tire pressure is printed on your tire.  The most common recommended pressure is 32 to 36 PSI.  To reduce likelihood of a flat tire, avoid riding on the side of the road or shoulder, where there is more debris.

DISC BRAKES

Disc brake pads need replacing at intervals that depend on your use.  If disc brakes are squishy, then you might need to have the lines bled, to remove bubbles that can occur when there’s a leak in the system or when your bike is tipped over.

DRUM BRAKES

When drum brake shoes wear out, they create more play at the lever.  This can be adjusted.  Brake shoes need to be replaced when they can no longer be adjusted.
