Most people use what is called a Battery tender... which is just a fancy way of saying low amp (2Amp) battery charger...
Buy one , and hook up the quick connect harness provided... plug it in... and you are good to go... It is said that use of this battery tender system extends the life of the battery by as much as 100% ( double the life expectency !!).

so , dont remove it... Tend it...
For storing your bike in an are without electrical outlets... use the solar battery tender !

How do I winterize there is no place to put the fluid


Hi, Marvin not sure which fluid you're talking about back in the day I use to slowly pour about 4 oz. of clean motor oil down the carburetor while the engine was running to coat the combustion chamber so rust doesn't move in the following is geared towards Harley's but it will work for any motorcycle, if you know your bike is going to be idle for months or longer here are some tips you can use to make restarting whenever that day comes to a hassle-free breeze.
A. Remove battery and keep it close to a battery tender/charger that you can hook up to at least once a month for 24 hours.
B. Drain the fuel tank and inspect the inside for rust, dirt, ethanol sludge, etc, remove and clean the petcock filter if you are carbureted, remove the fuel pump and check the pickup filter and the plastic delivery line for pin holes as these are common with age.
C. Drain the fuel lines going from the fuel tank to the carburetor/induction module.
D. On carbureted models remove the main jet access plug and drain the float bowl or, if necessary, remove and drain the float bowl!!!! this is very important as old fuel can turn to sludge and gum up your jets.
E. Drain engine, transmission, and primary oil this will eliminate wet-sumping and other various leaking situations during the storage time.

How do I winterize a mobility scooter


If you are storing it over winter. I would charge the batteries and disconnect them. Check them periodically and charge once a month until the warm stuff comes around. It can sometimes be better to take the batteries indoors as extreme cold or heat can adversely affect your battery life and performance. If you intend to use it through winter, just keep it dry, warm (if possible) and lengthen your normal charging regime (around 10-14 hours overnight should do it) You can get any number of waterproof dashboard covers and things that keep moisture out of the sensitive parts. It is also worth getting a full lubrication and service from a reputable local dealer.

Thanks Dave

Starter motor has not enough power to turn motor over when cold


A couple of issues could be causing this issue.
First thing is to check the engine oil and see that it full and not to thick or the incorrect grade of oil.
Secondly, I would make sure that the battery has a full charge and that you check all the connection.
This issue is most often caused from batteries not being removed in the winter and the battery goes dead and in the the summer months it's charged often enough to start. However batteries loss some of their ability in cold weather to crank as hard. so therefore a battery that has froze or been disharged in the winter is usually the culprit.

I have the same problem as jeffwater. seldom use the car in the winter and battery is dead if I don't run the car every two weeks or so. I don't see a switch on the trunk light. is it possible...


Hi, Car batteries lose their power over time if not used or charged. If you store your car in winter, take the battery out and give it a slow charge every month. (just like you do with a motorcycle battery). Or, start the motor and let it run 15-20 minutes every couple weeks. I would recommend doing that anyway to keep the engine oil from draining completely out of your bearings and possibly siezing up motor upon startup a few months later or bearing/engine damage due to excess wear on dry bearings. Thats the nature of the beast, there is no cure for it. Mike

Kymco midi foru,less than 6 months old batteries will not charge.


This will be due to the batteries being left uncharged for a long period of time. Should ideally be charged once a fortnight for at least 12 hours if the scooter is not used for any period of time. Unfortunately, the only real solution is new batteries.

Engine not turning over in the winter months. sometimes it will start and other times it won't. it rarely happens in the summetime, always the winter.


Its probably time for a new battery. Try taking the car to an auto parts store that will check the condition of your battery for free. Advance Auto or Auto Zone are usually good places to check.
