Dammit, I wish stuff would break down more often so I could fix it :wink:
The only streaks worth complaining about are ones that are fully clothed :)
Good luck with the job.
That's not going anywhere

Then throw a small piece of wood under the engine case to hold the back wheel up to do the work.
The balance point of the stand makes the scoot pretty light on the back end, so you could probably do it with no one else around if need be.
Just make sure the scoot cannot roll foward when you tilt it or the stand will fold up and the scoot will go down.

This is a pro tip I will remember. Thanks.
Its a long walk through the city in the rain, its a long walk from train to train.
