So my girlfreind has decided against getting a motorbike and is getting a scooter instead. fair enough! problem is she assumes that since i know a bit about bikes, i must therefore know abit about scooters (wrong) a couple of questions. firstly how hard is it to do your own maintinance on a scooter? (since ill be the one doing it) looking on scooters for sale some people are talking about replacing pistons and rings after only 10000kms??? this must be for a 2 stroke right? and so how many ks on a 4 stroke is alot of kays? she'll be doing about 100kms of commuting on it daily, so engine longevity is important. secondly which brands are from where? bug and bowell seem to represent good value for money, but im guessing they are chinese? do chinese scoots have the same quality control issues that chinese bikes do? anything else to be wary of or considerations to make? many thanks in advance!
