AlltooSerrious: looks like you did the recording with your toaster oven... but thanks for
the vid man it helped
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.
P 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
DJ Nomad: Thanks for the info. I'm about to change mine and you made it easy to find
Walter Chase: lol love your security sign.
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
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
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
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
dxfx1: That must be a QMB engine...mine's identical except the gearbox is black.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
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
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.
061992kingbob: WOW!! I feel blonde. Ive been having problems with my moped lately maybe
beacuse im 18000 miles over when i should have changed it! THANK YOU!!!
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 ?
Bob Chindblom: This was great!!! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate this video
Michael Weinberg: @wasillissor WTF, go die and stop being a moronic pickle, maybe you should
say, Hey, I'm a freaking idiot and thankyou for showing me how to change my
lauriejennifer: @wasillissor First world problems.
