My scooter hasn't been ridden in over a year, and needs some love. I know I need new tires and battery, but would like to spruce the girl up a bit. Maybe more power? Bigger exhaust? A charging outlet for the phone? Better horn?

I'm looking for suggestions here. If you had $1000 to put into your scooter, what would YOU do?

Greetings:

Your described and necessary replacements, for sure. I wouldn't hesitate to spring for the Malossi 187 kit, along with a stronger Delta clutch and variator to go along with your new belt too. As is, the acceleration will wake up! If you go with an upgear kit, acceleration is still better than stock, and opens up 70 MPH with the cylinder. You might even have some change left over from the G.

My 2 cents.

That's a definite maybe. I've thought about doing it every season; maybe this year is the time.

Any idea where I could find a kit to wire up a phone charger?

Welcome to the forum, here is the list of things I did, all thanks to this forum.
I use the usb charger a lot and also the footpegs for my daughter when she comes along
