    ahhh okay because i need it running and working perfectly as i dont have any mechanical knowledge, although my brother is a mechanic for Mercedes Benz he has never worked on a motorcycle before so he said he cant really help me with that much on a scooter Sad

    I know you don't have much mechanical knowledge, but these scooters are simple and you WILL have to tinker with them to keep them going.

    If your carb get blocked to clean it, if your spark plug needs changing. Or your bulb goes. There is plenty of help on forums and if you join a local scooter club people will be able to you out too.
