    Get ready for culture shock. Nothing gets done quickly, especially traffic, from November until April.

    I can't get the link to work, but, not being a techy type guy, I bought used rear shocks from various scooters and bikes until I hit upon the right ones for what I wanted. While not very scientific, it worked for me. Different lengths from differing sized bikes, and they were dirt cheap. For the front, I just varied different weight oil in my standard forks and got very close to what I want.

    Bubba done good! I met him a few years ago, and he struck me as a hard working kid trying to soak up all he could about his chosen trade. He wasn't about to play the race card, either. He earned his way and it was nice to see him get a good break.

    That isn't the fault of the seller, regardless of who it is. That is, plain and simple, the type of thing you have to expect when dealing with china manufactured parts. Some things are a given on Chinese scoots, ie., brittle plastics, casting flashing, poor wiring and connections,etc. Not trying to be a smart ass but If you've got a dremel and a steady hand, that should take all of less than a minute to fix.

    Sounds to me as if the float in the carb isn't allowing fuel to flow, if all else is good.

    That's a lesson for those who shop for price only.Great service and service after the sale are hard to put a price tag on until you need it.

    When vacationing in Mexico, I saw some cool scooters and small bore bikes that are generally unavailable in the states. Heck, they even sell them at Walmart!

    Importing Scooters/Bikes
    With all of the cool bikes and scooters ( and even cars) available elsewhere, is there any possible way to bring them into the U.S. for private use? There has to be a way other than waiting for them to be 25 years old. I remember there was a 'grey market' loophole back in the 80s, but I think that's been closed.
