Top 6 Ways to Maintain Your Scooter

    • 1

      Check and change the oil. Mopeds are much like cars and they need an oil change  every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.

    • 2

      Moderate all fluids on a weekly basis.For top performance, keep the fluids full

    • 3

      Check the air filters. You can clean them by either shaking them out, flushing with water, or if they are really bad, replacing with a new filter.

    • 4

      Inspect the belts for wear and tear. A broken belt can leave you and your scooter stranded.

    • 5

      Check the spark plugs on a regular basis for rust and any corrosion.

    • 6

      Wash the undercarriage and motor of the scooter. The salty air can corrode metal and this can be easily avoidable with weekly washes.

Scooters Around Dewey Beach Delaware

Did you know that Rehoboth / Dewey Beach has a scooter club? If you didn’t, they are a not for profit organization that hosts several events a year. One of which includes a scooter parade for charity. In the scooter parade you will see a ton of different varieties of scooters. There are many popular brands of scooters in Dewey Beach but one scoot trumps them all. Thats right, the Honda Ruckus. If you were a true Dewey Beach Scooter fanatic, you would know the term “Ruck Rider”. The Honda Ruckus looks like it could survive a nuclear blast and still have enough mojo to fight the zombie apocalypse.

The Ruckus is great for many reasons:

  1. Sex appeal – 194lbs of sexy
  2. Great gas mileage – 114 mpg great!
    • With a curb weight of 194 lbs, you can still cruise after all that boardwalk junk food
    • 49cc liquid cooled engine is tuned for maximum efficiency and torque
    • With a 1.3 gallon tank, you can go 148.2 miles without having to fill up! (seriously)
  3. Upgradable options
    • We’ll get your Ruckus going 50 mph! Stop on in and ask us how!
