A month or so ago I turned on the key to my CF Moto Fashion and saw only dim lights all around. I looked through the basics and found nothing so I took the scooter down to a shop in Town. This shop is run by a pair of young men who specialize in Motocross bikes but don't shy away from fixing anything with an engine. They fixed my Honda Nighthawk's directional signals last year and didn't say a word when I brought them the scooter.
After removing all the plastics and much investigating they found a wire deep inside the scooter that had been rubbed through. It was only carrying a minimum of current. They replaced the wire, taped it in a place away from being rubbed through again and it's back in my garage.
I always heard that no one works on Chinese scooters, well guess what? They have a Tao Tao there with a clogged carburetor from years old gas, a JM Star with ignition troubles and a Kymco Like 50 two stroke with a burned piston from being run without oil.
There are people out there who will work on Chinese scooters. You just have to look for them. Plus they're only four miles away.
