Hi,
It seems you have a 2009 MP3, I have one the same, I am interested why you are doing this, can you write the reason, how you picked it out ? like what you felt while riding, did you hit something? or it is just from the age of the scooter - wear and tear and usage of the scooter,

I am interested to see if I need to do that too,
thanks a lot,

I'm wondering what on earth caused it to fail - there should be bugger-all vertical forces on it.
