    That's it. I bought it. woooohooo~!

     
    Got my Ls on Monday, had loads of fun even though I regretted not buying my own gears prior so I don't have to use ones provided. Ick!

    Pop in the shop yesterday and the rest is history. Bought the scoot, box, helmets, jacket, gloves with delivery thrown in all at 4Ks! Thanks SGarage!

    I'm over the moon, a few more sleepless nights to go. Stick out tongue   Thanks to everybody here, the info in this forum helped me heaps. Smile

    Re: Hello to all Bee Wee riders and Scooterists!

    Quick update. Miss Beewee was here on Friday, didn't ride it until the insurance and roadside assist are settled. Then had a mere 1 hour test drive around my block, it was fun but she grumbled a little at the lower speeds 30-70km. Still a long way to go. Anyway, yesterday morning I woke up to a totally flat battery! *cry* No I didn't leave any lights on. Couldn't even kick start the thing which is weird. I hope I didn't get a lemon. Now trouble shooting starts. I'm going to disconnect the batt and bring it down for a charge or exchange, by Public Transport Tongue Tied Pics will be up tonight.

    Re: Hello to all Bee Wee riders and Scooterists!

    hey bikenoob, make sure your centre stand is down and your side stand up when trying to start or kickstart your beewee!!

    i thought i had a flat bat a few weeks ago at golf and then kick starting wouldn`t work, i had the side down, (cuts the engine) and centre up (kickstart got caught on it) so check these things first Geeked

    Re: Hello to all Bee Wee riders and Scooterists!

     thanks zuma. Yes Miss Beewee here was on the center stand whole time when I kick start, at risk of pulling all my hair out I rang the dealer who was helpful over the phone, that's good. It really could be just the silly batt *pray*, otherwise I'm fried, I'm very noob at mechanics. Tried removing the spark plug for a lookie yesterday (have to learn it somehow) and didn't have the strength, will try again this evening.

    Re: Hello to all Bee Wee riders and Scooterists!

    Yeah - check that your kill switch is in the correct position and remember you have to hold the brake on when you press the starter. 

    I know that these sound very, very obvious, but you'd be surprised how many times we get furious customers phoning because their scooter won't start - and strangely when we give them the instructions very few of them actually phone back.

    I wouldn't expect you to get a flat battery quite so quickly, unless you left the ignition on...

    Returned home earlier with the new battery and installed it, turn on ignition, nothing, only the lights came on. Kick-started a dozen times, nothing. The battery was tested at the shop to be good. This scoot is brand new, should I return it for a thorough check? I'm quite reluctant to having to go back and forth taking time to troubleshoot a brand new scoot. Do you guys think it's too much to ask for them to collect it for a full check then deliver it back to me? May I hear some opinions from any dealers here?
     
    I'm quite frustrated with the situation, having to take public transport in the rain just dampens my mood further. I've been taking time off work to try to solve this issue, which should not have happened in the first place as its a new scoot. comments?  /rant off.

    Re: Hello to all Bee Wee riders and Scooterists!

    I'm not wanting to offend you but the correct starting procedure is normally (kick start or electric start)

    1. scooter on centre stand
    2. check kill switch is not in the off position
    3. hands on handle bar holding both brake levers firmly on
    4. use the kick start or the electric start


    OK, you can just hold the left brake lever on the on position, but I've got into the habit of using both brakes when starting.

    If you use the side stand, some scooters will not start as they have a cut out switch fitted to the side stand, likewise no scooter will start unless you have at least the rear brake on.

    Some 2 strokes can be a little difficult to start at times, especially if you have flooded the engine, if you are kick starting, try at least 20 - 30 kicks before giving up.
