Ooops with my KYMCO 150i

Post by Bear45-70 »

It seems if you don't ever check the oil that you will eventually blow up your motor just like I did. The motor let go about 5 miles from my house and I had to wait for my step son to get off work and then come and get me, then the scooter. We haven't touched it yet due to health issues between me and my step son. He almost died from his and mine have been years in coming. At least he found me a 2005 Yamaha 125 Vino scooter to ride while I wait on the KYMCO's rebuild.

I count 14 scooters in your signature Bear.
Do any of them run ?
Just wondering why you need a big Vino to ride with so many bikes already on hand.

Oh yeah several of them run, the Spree is a runner and the 1983 Aero 80 is a runner and the 2005 Yamaha 125 Vino (which isn't listed) runs almost everyday. The KYMCO also isn't listed which I should fix, but probably won't. Oh and a 1984 Aero 125 runs but not great, so I almost never ride it.

Which model is that Kymco ?
People ? Never owned one, but rode them a few times.
I've never ridden a Super 8 or 9 though.

That would be the screamer Like 150i which with the windshield on it will do over 66 MPH on a flat road.

I respect everything you have contributed to the Spree.My findings and documented readings are 52mph tops speed on the AF05E dyno tested but not proven in real world because of preservation priorities in my personal (THEY ARE MY SON'S) Spree's and dyno testing.. Please read: viewtopic.php?t=33591

Well the KYMCO still isn't fixed and my boat outboard is also not fixed. The Yamaha 125 Vino still runs but I can't do it because I had CHF and after they fixed it after I almost died from it I am still in rehab and it ain't easy. I laid the Yamaha down in a ditch a year ago on Oct. 10 2022 and then was in a car accident on the 29th being hit in the right hand door where I was sitting, Broke my right hand and bruised my right shoulder and right knee. After a week in the hospital I went to a care facility in Bremerton for a week and a half then finally got to come home. But the CHF, That's Congestive Heart Failure to you unknowing types, started to kick my butt and got progressively worse unknown to anyone and I finally ended up at the VA Hospital emergency room and my wife claims I told her twice that I thought I was going to die and she got the nurse who got a Cartologist who check me out and after 4 days I had lost 42 pounds from peeing like a mad man from two a day IV heavy duty Lasik which was not fun but it did cure me but I was weak as a kitten and am still not doing great. The wife says I can't ride unless I can walk without a cane or a walker so the scooter just sits.
