Did this video help you?

Bulgdoom: Wow, I hadn't seen such a low resolution video before. I can actually count the pixels.

John Speed: Love you and mean it. Thank you for your help. I have the same bike. I changed the oil, that went ok, but gear oil. Seamed to look easy but I was not sure how to fill the gear oil. You have been a big help. I love a girl who knows how to fix and use tools. You are awesome. Thank you again. I have one question to ask you, if I need more help fixing my bike, I would love to ask you again, if you dont mind. Thank you again. Your new friend.

Christopher Spohr: I'll be doing this in a few days!! Will fix my squeaking on take off..

Squeek nesmith: Thanks for this video now i saved 75 bucks rather than getting it serviced.

AlltooSerrious: looks like you did the recording with your toaster oven... but thanks for the vid man it helped

DJ Nomad: Thanks for the info. I'm about to change mine and you made it easy to find everything. 

Walter Chase: lol love your security sign.

A Chaivo: I like your video but just a tip, and a big one. Its not a good idea to start a bolt with socket and a ratchet. You want to start a bolt by hand. The reason being if you begin to cross the thread you'll feel it with your fingers. You have way too much torgue with a wrench, easy to mangle the threads...then you're SOL

JitterBob: I just bought a 50cc 2 stroke Roketa and I can't figure out where the oil goes. I feel like an idiot. Is there 2 kinds of oil I need? I only bought 2 cylinder multi-purpose oil but I'm afraid to put it in because I don't know where it goes. lol My scooter doesn't appear to have those nut sealers. It just has a plastic twist off cap with a warning next to it about "gear oil" I had no idea I needed "gear oil". So far I haven't been able to find a single person who can help me identify what goes where on my bike so it's just sitting there brand new and I can't use it yet.

lauriejennifer: Thanks a ton for that! Glad I could entertain. Actually, things are turning around! I found work for August (it's just July that will be tight now). And... I just bought a 250. It's in my driveway right now. But, shhhhhh.... Don't tell anyone yet. ;)

Rob Son: Generally speaking, the fill hole is located at the fill line. Assuming that you have parked the vehicle on a relatively level surface before starting the work, you fill until it starts to leak out of the fill hole. When it starts to leak out, stop filling and let it leak out until it stops. Then finger thread with a new crush washer then torque down. Same with Automotive differentials and manual trans fluid.

lauriejennifer: Ha. Thanks. It's a keeper, for sure. The sticker, I mean. :)

gelfling6: Glad I ran across this video! I just got a MD50QT-5 last Saturday (06/30/12) and you're right, the 'Engrish' manual is a bear to follow the broken dialect. I've dealt with similar, on an old 1999 Tomos Targa, which used ATF automatic transmission fluid. (granted, that one, the E35 engine was a 2-stroke.) the MD50 looks like it has Aluminum seals, which is moot point, but exact identical engine/transmission LOL, Only had it 2 days, and already I've got 70 miles on it. Thanks for the How-To !

babyboy10492: i just checked it and yes it needs to be changed i just have to figure out how lol(the manual doesnt explain or show where it is :( )

Travis Kearney: I put a little in the top screw of the three screws before I realized it was wrong and then I put it in the center hole with the copper seal. My question is does anybody know what happens to the oil I put in the top hole? Before I filled the correct center hole I opened up the drain plug below a second time but nothing came out. That makes me worried that the oil in the top hole is just sitting there maybe soaking up an oil gasket or something. Thanks.

boobtubeviewr: & btw I can't wait to see some gunplay (by a motovlogger no less) whether on foot or riding, after some poor fool tries to mess with ya again :-D ps. I read your account of the HOT pursuit & subsequent recovery that prompted that sticker... I have a feeling ur vlogs are gonna be good! :-)

jojolemonkey: @lauriejennifer just on small tip, on cars, scooters or motorcycles. After you remove the drain plug also loosen (in this case removing) the fill plug, this way you relieve any vacuum pressure which can stop all of the oil from draining. The oil will flow much faster too, clearing out more debris.

CB7ism: good video thanx! but? how much gear oil, exactly, should i use so that i don't create a seal leak?

December Twentynine: Just read the description and it brought something to my attention. For laughs, in case you mess up on any gear oil or motor oil changes, here's what my owner's manual shows: (In perfect Chenglish) When your motorcycle is out of order, please send it to service team, we are sure you will be satisfied.

martinthegenius: this is a gy6 engine, standard on lance scooters too. pdf manual is available on google: FOR CAPACITY IT SAYS .12|-40ES --- who cares wtf that means, it states that YOU FILL IT TILL IT RUNS OUT THE ADJUST BOLT (the one with the sealer washer that she fills it with. Make sure you scooter is not on the center stand and your foot rest is propped up with wood

Adam Steele: @daWhiteRabit haha no crap what a big peepeesucker he is.

lauriejennifer: Check under the gear box, like on my scooter here. Most generic made-in-China scooters are pretty similar. Look for the screws that have copper washers with them. That would be where you would add and drain the gear oil. Or post a video of a detailed walk around (especially of the gearbox area, like where I'm showing here on this video) and I'll see if I can help you spot it. Or, if you live in the Chicago area, send me a Youtube message.

dxfx1: That must be a QMB engine...mine's identical except the gearbox is black. Very helpful!

ballm0use: @lauriejennifer a girl that rides, hot^^ I miss my ride sooo much!

lauriejennifer: No, not HD. I wish! I'm still unemployed. And, actually, I have some sad news... I just sold the scoot. I had to. I need/want something bigger, and I have bills. And I'm not in the position to have my cake and eat it, too. The video of the sale will be the next one, put up later this week.

Greggri M: THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I COULDNT FIND IT TO SAVE ME .. HAHAAHH

Beau Jones: This video sucks balls

cycledayz: if i change my gear oil should my scooter go more than 20mph

lauriejennifer: LOL! Thanks. Yeah, it's too bad I didn't get that one on film, right? (Not that I could run with all that gear on...) Except it would have been like an episode of Jerry Springer and just one long continuous "Beeeeeeeeep!" My language, normally very clean, was [understandably] atrocious.

34boo: Your a boring idiot,what a waste of time

Adnan Khurshid: my EMAIL adnan_12@hotmail.com

Steve Claussen: I have a question. I watched another video and he said to use 10/40 oil on it. 80/90 sounds more right. so which is it.???

Tanner Anderson: Are you a boy or girl??????

lauriejennifer: With a little mechanical know-how, they can be alright. Keep in mind that you *do* get what you pay for. So, if you're only paying $700 for a vehicle, well... you get a vehicle worth $700. I had all sort of initial issues with mine. But now I know that you have to carefully and *thoroughly* go over these bikes before you first ride them. Inspect everything, even (especially) everything that came "preassembled." Most issues you would otherwise have can be avoided right there.

lauriejennifer: You pick the strangest videos to troll.

Keith Confidentialiality: Thank you!

lauriejennifer: I know most manuals say every 600 or 1000 miles. And many people have gone as long as 3000 miles, because they're used to a car. But this isn't like a car and going that long has cost many people the longevity of their scooter. If you change the oil more frequently, the engine will last longer, plain and simple. Remember there's only barely one quart of motor oil in there (and much less for the gear oil). And for the motor oil I changed mine every 300 miles, which was half the time...cont.

boobtubeviewr: Laurie seems like you've kinda switched from parkour to scooter-vlogging - is this a new direction for u with ur account & if so do u plan on getting a better cam? Just curious is all. Luv the parkour vids too, there hasn't been a motovlogger with those interests that I know of, so u might be the first :-)

lauriejennifer: Good luck with that! If anyone can keep it from falling apart, it's probably someone like you. But I don't actually have this scooter anymore. I sold it before I got my Ninja. No moolah for both, you know? I had to pay rent. LOL.. I can't wait for my job to start in August. Living on credit is no bueno.

Shab A: How much oil?

itsallabouthejourney: The instruction manuals for these Chinese bikes are the most crappest thing I have ever seen! they say waht to do, but never tell you where everything is! so weird.

lauriejennifer: And, by the way, I had an absolute blast with this scooter. And once I fixed a few things (they were a result of poor assembly at the plant, and shipping damage), it ran like a champ. I put 2100 miles on it in less than 4 months. :-)

john bowman: did you record this with a potato?

nickadiemus: thread the bolts in by hand first. also try turning the bolts backwards first to find the start of the threads.... thanks for the tips, you should put a link to sell them stickers

Drum09Bum: which one is it? this one? :D

lauriejennifer: @DaRidge69 No worries! Check out 49ccscoot dot c om. That forum is an awesome, awesome resource, with an entire subforum of tech tips and howto's.

KrZxBleach: srsly though how much oil. i dont have a manual. anyone that does, does it say a measured amt in there somewhere?

lauriejennifer: Your friend Austin has good taste. :)

Igor Barić: Thanks for the video and all praise to the author.

babyboy10492: is the scooter belt drivin? why does it need gear oil? i have a 180cc scooter its a JMStar i havent seen anything about gear oil ?

Petter Danckwardt: I have read some of the comments saying this is a bad sci-fi movie, and that the concept is good but that the movie does not utilize its concept in a good way. I viewed this movie in a different way. For me, this movie is not a sci-fi movie, but purely drama. The other earth is not as much a sci-fi plot as it is a symbol and a meaningful tool for the truly interesting plot: reconciliation added with existentialism and questions regarding freedom; it is a philosophical movie, compared to for example Solaris or Vanishing Waves. You can also compare it to Melancholia. – The Blue planet is just a tool for the characters self-realization. For those who actually want a sci-fi movie with aliens and disasters and explosions, I do not recommend you watching this movie.
