Looking for manual for a Bowell Le Grande Scooter

I was given this scooter by my daughter and son-in-law (who had it stored in their garage for two years) when my car broke down and would have cost to much to repair. However the scooter has gone through a bushfire and was damaged (eg plastic melted)but my daughter's in-laws' house where the manual was stored was completely destroyed and therefore no manual. I am new to riding and would like to look up a few things (eg fuel capacity, how to set clock, there is a symbol on 'dashboard' I don't know what it stands for; why when it is turned on it flashes lights on the dashboard twice - don't remember this happening when first starting to ride). I'd also like to know how much it weighs - I am sure it is heavier than a motor bike I owned when I was younger (when in my 30's and now in my 60's with a L plate and in two weeks get my license I hope!. I don't do the mechanical side, I let the 'experts' do that for me. Also not sure about tyre psi for best riding. I live in the country and I don't think the place I take it has seen this model before.

Testimonial: "Previously did search for Bolwell. Couldn't find the company - lots of people with that name however. Do you have any idea what the business name would be and what country they are located? Tried searching internet for manual also and all I could find was something about SYM Bowell Le Grande but when I clicked on it, it was a repairers manual and way too technical for me. I am new to scooters so I don't know whether SYM is a company that took over Bowell or what? thank you"

SOURCE: New motorcycle laws 2013

Newer fuels have alcohol in them,AKA ethanol.This will not mix easily with gasoline and it also has a tendency to attract moister into the fuel.Looking at your video,I'd say you have alcohol and water mix that has settled out of the fuel.The mix is heavier than gas so it goes to the bottom.The fuel can be carefully recover by syphoning it off the top of the alcohol water mix.Just be careful not to disturb the container while the syphoning is happening an stop it just before all the gas is syphoned off.

SOURCE: Why won't my lights work?

Have you checked the wiring to the lights. Sounds like you have a wire that has shorted to ground. Would also explain your battery drain. I'd check the wiring before the ignition switch since it is draining your battery with the switch in the off position.

Hi, Stuck_record sounds like your mechanic is blowing blue smoke up your skirt you may want to try a different shop if that's possible for a 2nd opinion. Motor scooters performance can vary from country to country. If you are looking for more top speed try going up one size in the main jet and make sure the butterfly plate in the carburetor is completely "HORIZONTAL" when the throttle grip is wide open the slightest deviation will slow you down.

E20 razor rocket electric scooter will not charge and someone said you need to insert a fuse but it doesnt tell you were or how. i have only purchased this as a christmas present for my daughter but it...

If it is a fuse problem then try looking for a fuse box in the controller or charger. If not then take it back, unless stated in the manual that you need to enter a fuse before it will charge, the scooter should charge right out the box.

Another thing you might want to try is to turn the scooter off before charging.

I an looking for a MANUAL for an ULTRAGLIDE Mobility scooter.

Thanks for writing back, I really do appreciate that.
Yesterday I found another person on E-bay who was selling the same scooter which my husband has been given, and he was very helpful. His scooter was already sold, but he took the time to answer my questions about where to find the serial no. of the scooter, what kind of batteries I'd need, and where to get them cheaper than the official site.
The scooter new, costs about £4000 + but 2nd hand it will only fetch about £700 - £1000. My husband is going to try to use it, and if that doesn't work out, we will just try to sell it.
I have a friend in S.Africa (where we lived for many years, and I have tried in vain to get an instruction book for her ...I think French cooking stove, so I will contact her again for details and see if you can help her.
Thanks again for writing back.
Sincerely, Mabel Farr.
