Gas prices go up and down, but mostly up, and that trend is likely to continue for the foreseeable future. Because of this, people are increasingly turning to motor scooters. In addition to being entertaining to ride and providing extreme mobility, scooters often travel up to 100 miles for each gallon of gasoline burned. How to Repair Your Scooter is divided into chapters according to the scooter's various mechanical systems. For example, brakes, suspension, intake, exhaust, etc. each have their own chapter. Each chapter begins with a simple explanation of how the subsystem works and what its strengths and weaknesses are. The chapter then takes the reader through a series of common maintenance and repair projects, each illustrated with step-by-step sequential photography with captions. Content covers two- and four-stroke scooters and is relevant for machines from all markets.
