Assembly and Maintenance
Assembly and Maintenance
Our products require mechanical knowledge in order to be properly assembled and maintained. Many items will be shipped in a crate and will come 90% assembled. Purchaser is responsible for making sure the item is properly assembled. We strongly suggest that you take your vehicle to be properly assembled and inspected by a certified and licensed mechanic to ensure everything is done properly and safely. Assembly may include, but is not limited to, attaching mirrors, trunk (if included), front wheel, fender, handlebars, kickstand, battery, checking tightness of nuts and bolts, changing oil, etc. Occasionally, some units may need other routine items checked and adjusted such as the carburetor idle and mixture screws, chain slack, alignment, clutch, ensuring wire connectivity, etc. Be sure to check for appropriate engine fluid levels to ensure your vehicle is operating under the recommended conditions prior to use.
ScooterMadness.com will not be responsible for any liabilities, losses, costs, expenses, damages, medical expenses, injuries or deaths incurred due to improper assembly and/or improper maintenance. Not having the vehicle initially assembled and continually maintained by a certified and licensed mechanic may, in certain cases, render your warranty null and void or may shorten it. Your mechanic must also fill out our Post Delivery Inspection Form. Please complete this form upon receipt of your vehicle and email it to [email protected]. If you elect to assemble and maintain the vehicle yourself, please do so thoroughly and safely. Please read our Post Delivery Inspection Guide, though this manual may not encompass all checks or modifications needed for safe use of all units and products sold on ScooterMadness.com, and watch our scooter assembly videos and scooter maintenance videos on our YouTube Channel.
We will gladly try our best to answer any question you may have, although it can be difficult troubleshooting over the phone. Ultimately, it is your responsibility to get your scooter assembled and running. We provide online documentation on how to assemble and troubleshoot many models. We also have a helpful YouTube channel that you can refer to. It is filled with how-to videos and assembly videos of various models.
Our vehicular products come crated and partially unassembled direct from the manufacturer. A common misconception is that these scooters are "Assemble & Go" type scooters. Our scooters are guaranteed to have everything needed to run. They are NOT, however, guaranteed to run out of the box. Most scooters will start up after assembly, but a small minority will not and will require maintenance. Issues may include, but are not limited to, unplugged connections, bad fuses, bad CDIs, clogged carburetors, bad starters, faulty spark plugs, kinked fuel lines, etc. When you purchase a scooter in the crate you will pay a fraction of what you would pay at a physical dealership, but it is your responsibility to insure that your scooter is set up and runs properly.
