Have a flat tire on a Chauffeur Scooter rear wheel.

I have a Chauffeur heavy duty scooter that is about 9 or 10 years old. The serial number is 00 60322. I removed the nut in the center of the wheel, then a inch long key wedge was removed that lays on a sleeve. The wheel stii doesn't want to come off. Do I need to disconnect the batteries? Are there brakes holding the wheel?

Thanks so much for any help you can offer.

I just removed the right rear wheel from my Chaffeur scooter. I first removed seat, plastic cover and batteries. Then removed wheel center bolt, set scooter on it\'s side and used a short 2x4 and rubber mallet to drive the wheel off. A shot of penetration oil helped. It is an extremely tight fit.Can\'t figure the two piece rim out though. Anyone have suggestions on why it is a two piece and how to remove tire from rim?

SOURCE: Battery location on scooter

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, have to inform you, have not worked on one. Being in the Philippines most that I have laid my hands on are Japanese with a sprinkling of Italian but don't recall ever working on a French scooter. Sorry.

Still as you posted "Any advice...", allow me to do some guesstimate:

  • most scooters would have the battery located low;
  • would not be more than 50 cms away from the starter motor/engine;
  • being a 125 engine, battery would have to be about 7A/H, a bit heavy, therefore battery holder would not be on any of the plastics, chances are to the frame;
  • likely to be under the seat but there would be the helmet compartment, so maybe lower.
With the above assumptions:
  • either under the helmet compartment front of the engine (but would have an easy access panel/lid; or
  • under the footrest/floorboard.
Pls update how close or how far, curious myself. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

SOURCE: Cannot unfold our Bratz Musical Stars Fold Scooter

Call MGA toll free 1 800 222 4685 and they will walk you through the procedure. You have you put one hand on the slanted bar with the yellow label on it and one hand on the foot board and push in and down at the same time. Push at the same angle as the slanted bar. I couldn't get ours open either so I called the company - Good Luck!

SOURCE: 50cc Two Stroke Scooter Engine - Poor Idle

I had the same problem- from out of nowhere the scooter started dying at every stop. I adjusted the idle screw to 2000 and it still idled up and down. I bought some injector cleaner but this will take a while to work (several tanks of gas) and then found this link- seems to be a very simple thing to do once you read this link. I hope it helps. --

SOURCE: Need service manual or electrical wiring diagram.

one ofthe best ways to work it out is the find the motor controller, normally it's a black box located under the seat,

Now remember you have two wires from the batteries B+, B-, two wires to the motor, M+, M- and some smaller wires on maybe a ten connector block that leads to the tiller where the throttle on the handlebars is located.

Hope that helps

How do I put air in the tires?

It is possible that your scooter may have solid tires which means no air is required. You should be able to see a hole in the wheel rim where, if air tires were fitted, the valve would come out. No Valve=No Air. The rims are of the split type which you have to take the bolts out in the middle of the wheel to split the wheel to change the tires.

I have the exact same problem. This is a Fortress Scientific 2001LX C series. Not sure what exactly the free wheel lever is, but I'll assume that it's the lever that touches the tire? You can't budge this...

MaryJain The scooters freewheel lever should be at the right rear of the scooter under the shroud and no it shouldn'd be touching the tire. To put it freewheel you should push the lever down. Now if the lever is rubbing the tire you can try to get someone to push it sideways toward the left tire to get it away from the right tire. It should move easily into and out of gear. Be careful not to break it or the small micro switch on the brake. Hope this helps you
