Just saying hi.,
I bought a low milage Medley 4 months ago, I was happy with it, having researched what I wanted to ride after taking basic rider Training on a forgettable Chinese scooter.
But I now have a problem, the bike has 4000 miles on the clock, I have put 800 on myself.
The last time I took it out, it inexplicably conked out on me, no warning lights, oil lights, engine lights, it just stopped! I assumed an electrical fault ,got it rescued , but at home took out the spark plug, to check and clean, and found it mangled, the electrode bent, my assumption was a major mechanical fail.
I contacted the dealer( it was 2nd hand) , the garage has stripped it and told me the piston is seized, through lack of oil, now I may be a noobie , but I have been motoring 45 yrs so I am wel aware of doing engine and brake checks before setting out.
I can categorically state the engine oil was within parameters, there is no evidence of oil leaks or burnt engine oil, so my question is, where has the oil gone?
I hope to have this rectified by the seller, but what I want to know is there any history or problems with the i-get125 engine, I am asking, so that if the sellers try to squirm out of responsibility to repair, I can say any reasons they give are not valid.
Under Consumer rights act in Britain, anything sold in UK has to be of merchantable quality for 6 months, if it goes wrong or breaks within that's period , it has to be repaired ,replaced, or refunded, regardless of whether it's brand new or used.
It's kind of galling to be asking advice in this circumstance, but I believed I had sought & bought a sound bike, for my needs.
I welcome comments
