Thank you Abhinav and Vikram for those insightful posts.

Well, yes, my wife is 5.1 and weighs around 60kgs so she is not exactly light.

My concern with the Scooty Pep/Streak is their power delivery. Are they not underpowered for a place like Blore/Pune which hardly have any roads without gradients and speed breakers?

Do we have any owners of Scooty Pep/Streak on the forum who can pitch in?

I ride a Flyte. I live in Bangalore. I have found that Scooty Pep/Streak with one person on it can easily keep up with me up to about 45kmph.

Take a test ride of a Scooty. They are definitely not underpowered for city use - where most of the riding is under 50kmph.

I think I spoke too soon about my Wego not having any issues.

Over the past couple of days, I have observed a few drops of oil underneath the vehicle after it's parked overnight. Since these drops are on the rear left of the vehicle, my guess is that this is transmission oil, and not engine oil.

The 3rd servicing is due on Jan 24 anyway; however, I'm planning to avail the service tomorrow itself, lest this leakage gives rise to anything more serious due to a delay in going to the ASC.

Gurus, is this anything that might cause a major headache? I just hope that I've not damaged anything already! :-(

Cheers,
Vikram

Hi Vikram,

I too had the same problem with my Wego almost at the same time as yours.

But, once I went to the service centre, it was rectified immediately. But, in my case, the problem happened after the second/third service (couldn't remember the date). And the transmission oil started to leak a lot.

After that, I haven't faced any problems with my Wego (completed 5th service).

Hope your case with the Wego is solved fast. Good luck.

My father bought a scooty pep+ few months back, and I rode it often. I had absolutely no issues riding it in Bangalore. It didn't feel undepowered at all, and I have driven it with a passenger too. I think it makes good sense for city use. My father too is around 5' and he wanted something which wasn't too high, or weighed too much. Pep+ was right for him. I think the current pep is around 90cc. He likes the pep.

I don't own a Scooty Streak, but used it for more than a month when my friend was out of town and did not want the new scooty to stay put in her home. Its really nimble and has sufficient power to ride within the city. My road inside the SEZ in which my office is situated is a mix of hilly terrain and large speadbreakers where the Streak performed superbly. I weigh 90kgs and when riding solo there is no lack of power, only when you add a pillion you will feel that it could have had a bit more. What i liked the most is how easy it is to guide the scooter in the pothole infested roads. Its just very easy. Take a test drive and you will know what I mean.

Guys,

Need a help. How do I check engine oil level in the Scooty Pep+.

The filler cap does not have a dipstick and I cannot locate the Watch Glass either.

Please help!

Not sure if any of the access owners have faced this issue, when i try to ride in slow speeds, say around 20kms, the vehicle vibrates a little but smooth ens out once it reaches 40. Brought this to the SA's notice couple of times, but i dont seem to find a solution. Is it just me or is it a common problem?

The same behaviour is observed on my HH Pleasure. It is not observed during stop and go but when you are steadily riding at low speeds. It is a sort of judder observed, as if the vehicle is in too high a gear ( except that there are no gears) for the speed. Maybe its a common problem to all CVT two wheelers. Experts may clarify, but I wouldnt worry about it too much.

Have observed the same in my Honda Activa too at low speeds. Nothing to worry about.

Centrifugal clutch lining could be worn out. Or could be a worn out V-belt. Mostly these things cause "judder", when taking off/at low speeds, on belt-drive CVTs.

Thumbs down Re: The Gearless Scooter Thread

Even I have the same problem on my Aviator. Between the speed of 20-30. There is a Zzzzzrrrrrrrr..... kind of sound. After the speed of 30 kmh the ride is smooth.

I will check it with ASC on next service.

Have been hearing this judder like noise very recently(maybe past 3-4 months), has this anything to do with the age of the scooter? Anyways I will be checking with the workshop as my Activa will go for the scheduled service this week end, will be asking the SA to check the V belt/clutch specifically.

Could be. My daughter's 18-month old Access has some of that judder at low speeds, but my son's 3-month old Access does not have it so far.

I had the same issue, forced the mechanic to test ride it along with me.
It was found that noise was from front number plate and they loosened some tight suspension (??) or something like that.

Haven't faced the issue again, from that day onwards.
Talk to your mechanic/supervisor.
