No engine too small

Not every customer has a large vehicle that needs attention, sometimes our customers bring-in their scooters for a mechanical check-up, overhaul or just regular maintenance.

Connie is one of our customers with a small engine that needed attention.

At Finish Line Auto Repair we like to assist our scooter customers by encouraging them to focus on regular maintenance — this means changing the oil regularly, changing the fuel filter and spark plug at the proper intervals, checking the CVT belt and air filter. It also mean checking the tires and going around the scooter at least once a month and making sure that all the bolts are tight (especially the bolts holding the muffler on).

It is also important that scooter owners use the recommended grade of gas (usually higher than 90 octane for most Chinese scooters) and add fuel stabilizer if the scooter isn’t going to be driven for a while.

If you take all these precautions and still find yourself needing a little mechanical assistance, don’t hesitate to call on the staff at Finish Line.
