    Re: How To Repair Your Scooter

    If I was to arm myself with this book, a reasonable level of common sense, an acceptable level of motivation and a desire to repair and maintain my scooter, what tools would I need?

    ... other than a hammer, some explosives and a sound-proof room.

     3/8 inch metric socket set  Metric combination spanners  Set of screwdrivers  Torque wrench  General purpose pliers  Multi meter Home made variator hold tool

    Re: How To Repair Your Scooter

     What sort of tool is a clever guy? How much do they cost? How long do they last? Are they adjustable? Do they need maintenance? Do they fit into an average size cupboard? Can you leave them out at night or do you have to lock them up? Do you have to be careful how you handle them? Do they break if you drop them? Can you get them anywhere second hand?

    non wickapedia explanation of 'clever guy'

     it is debatable weather it's a tool.   it cost me a harley.   it's lasted 7 yrs so far.   adjustable? ... yea i guess.   yes, it needs maintenance yes indeed.   i can get it in the cupboard but have found it rather difficult to keep it there, unless the cat is also in the cupboard..it likes the cat.   i can leave it out at night but it gets a bit bitchy. then i need to lock it up. you wouldnt like it when it's bitchy.   careful handling? yes.   i reckon you would have to drop it from a great hieght to break it and i am willing to give that a try.   this one is mine and its not for sale but if i were to sell it, it would cost you a harley.

    Looks like I'll have to find a way to become a clever guy. Hopefully the book will help.

     you should be able to get the do it yourself book off the internet. thats what my guy did. they have everything you need to know about maintenance and repair.  its been a god send for us as he is learning as he goes and has managed to rebuild a wreck and lately he used the internet manual to find and replace the busted parts of my pcx after i stacked it. its good as gold now. He built a 74 triumph from the ground up the same way. he has since sold that and bought a harley.  now he's using the online manual for that bike to keep it maintained.  they are priceless.
