Combat Commuter: Screwy Drivers and Belts

Combat Commuter: Screwy Drivers and Belts

The Combat Commuter has a great post up with some general advice on maintaining your scooter, and some specific hints about inspecting and replacing the drive belt on automatic CVT scooters.

Take it from a former mechanic: Much that gets replaced in the shop doesn't need to. It's not necessarily the mechanic's fault, either, because the only ones in this business really making the money are the shop owners and those who invest in the manufacturers. The mechanic is usually just trying to keep his job. This really should extend to many facets of life, such as religion, politics, etc. Be informed. Don't blindly follow the masses, or anyone, for that matter. Investigate for yourself, and know the facts behind your beliefs.

Truer words were never said.
