You do not want to use the oil that is in it when shipped. That oil does not give enough lubercation. If you do use it you will be taking life away from the motor.

Good Luck

Why does this performance cdi not start the motor but the stock one does?

Performance parts on a mobility scooter! Are you sure lol. Mobility scooters are electric, they don't have an internal combustion engine. As my old dad would have said "they saw you coming"!

My guess is that you haven't connected it correctly.

Hi there 1. looking for service and repair manual please. 2. I understand that oil change is every 2500 miles =4020 kilometres is that correct? Thanks and awaiting your reply Alan

If you have a new Fiddle II 125 and you still haven't changed out the factory lubricants, you need to change them out a.s.a.p. They should have been drained-out and replaced somewhere pretty close to 300 kilometers (around 186 miles), which is according to the Fiddle's owner's manual (see periodical maintenance schedule, pg. 23).

For first time engine oil replacement, use a good brand of 10W-30 conventional motor oil. For the first time transmission oil replacement, maybe use a conventional or semi-synthetic SAE 85W-140 gear lube.

Once you reach around a 1000 miles, I would suggest the switch-over to synthetics in both applications. Amsoil 4-stroke Synthetic Scooter Oil is touted as the best engine oil for your machine.

My manual says to use 5w-20. I have a 2006 chrysler 300 v6 2.7. Which brand is best and would using a synthetic be better or worse?

any brand of oil is ok but you have to do the oil change every 3k miles or under
this motor will go bad if you don't do the oil change
synthetic will be better and cost more but you still have to do the oil change every 3k

go only and search chrysler or dodge 2.7 engines

If the bike has knobby type (bumpy tread) they do make noise.Just be sure they have the correct air pressure in them.
Try to support the bike so you can manually spin the wheels like if the bike had a center stand.Feel while turning, to see if the wheels feel to tight or loose.And try to feel any play in the wheels. Or hear any stange noise.
While your are at it go ahead a drain the oil and change it with a good quality oil. The bike should have come with a book to tell you what type oil it wants.Dont be afraid to change the oil more than it is suppost to be.They dont hold that much oil and the shifting of the gears will generate alot of break in metal dust that needs to come out of the engine.
To say if you made a mistake in buying the bike remains to be seen because their is no history of the Chinese bikes in this country.
If I could ride the bike I could give you a better opinion.
Another thing you could do is, while riding the bike with it makeing the sound,pull in the clutch and put it in neutral.Is the feeling gone?
This can help to be sure the noise is not engine generated.

Thoughts on Used Atlantic 200 Pricing

I'm still looking for a Scarabeo 200. I'm in the SF Bay Area. Funny thing happened at a restuarant the other night a gent pulls up riding a 4 year old Aprilia Atlantic 200. I expressed interest in scooters and the next thing out of him was Want to buy it? Short story is that it has 5000 miles on it. He's the original owner. Said he's done all the service himself, which after quizzing him about it further amounted to changing the oil every 1,000 miles. No problems, just wanted to buy a new scooter. His asking price was $3500. Kelly Blue Book rates a 2004 Atlantic to be worth $1800, so his price seems very inflated. Plus the fact that a brand new Scarabeo 200 can be had for $3399 plus tax and prep. Would a fair counter-offer be $1800?,yes possibly soo ..lemme ask you youre obviously not trying to fly under dmv radar lookin at over 50 cc bikes. why you wanna stay so small why not 4-500 cc near same mileage when not beating on it and plenty of power when needed? btw.... i paid 2000 $ us for a o3 beo 150, 7 months or so ago i couldnt find one anywhere without piles for shipping/delivery and mine was 1 owner under 2800 miles and twas in near mint cond adult owned..ive this thing about buyin new vehicles .. and isnt the atlantic a lil wheel scoot like 13-14 on it ??,,,
