Winterizing

Should I winterize my scooter?

Yes, Winterizing your scooter for extended storage can significantly improve its performance and decrease the risk of mechanical failure when you return it to regular use. 

How do I winterize my scooter?

Here are several steps we recommend for complete winter storage protection:

 1. Run your engine out of fuel. Gasoline that stands in tanks and carburetors for weeks unused will accumulate moisture and not burn efficiently. Simply draining the tank or siphoning does not get all the fuel out of the system. Fuel additives for long-term gas storage are not recommended – they can cause plugged filters, lines and carburetors in some engines.
  a. Note: If you plan to use your scooter for short periods of time during the winter and do not fully drain the tank, a fuel stabilizer is a good idea for short-term storage. When you use the scooter, drain the tank as above and refill it with fresh fuel. Once you return to storage again, add the fuel stabilizer.

 2. Do not drain crank case oil. Oil will thicken and thin with temperature changes but will not degrade. An empty crankcase is more susceptible to moisture invasion and removes necessary lubrication of critical engine components.

 3. Disconnect and store your batteries, if possible. Batteries store more successfully when kept sealed and stored in a dry location at normal room temperatures. Check the charge before reinstalling and charge accordingly.

 4. Store your scooter in a dry and temperature stable enviornment as possible. For those who do not have a garage or other inside storage, we recommend securing the scooter with tarps or other appropriate covers in an area out of exposure to the most extreme winds and weather. Covering the scooter will not only protect your finish, but help prevent moisture invasion and freezing of sensitive components.

With proper care and preparation, you can safely and securely store your scooter under almost all weather conditions. These steps should help you extend the life of your scooter for many years.
