     You should be filling before your light comes on.  With a 2 stroke, get into the habit of topping up every fortnight, when you do your normal checks like tyre pressue etc. 

    Just a question.  When you bought your scooter, did your dealer go thru these things with you.  They should have advised what oil to use, how to check the oil, and when to check the oil etc.

     Most 2 strokes i have had i normally topped up the oil tank on every 4th fill up of the petrol tank plus i would check the oil level weekly when doing  my other checks .

    Also check that light & indicators are working . Brake fluid level is OK & a general look round the scooter to see if anything is working loose
