VIN Questions

  • Why do I need a copy of my VIN?
    • The VIN is for your records. If the vehicle is lost or stolen, this is your proof of ownership. Keep this important information on file.
  • I need my VIN, do you have a copy?
    • No, we hand over all documentation at the point of purchase. We do not keep VINs on file.
  • Where can I find my VIN?
    • The VIN is 17 characters long and is located on the body of the vehicle, usually etched into the frame or on an engraved plate. Locations for reference are provided in the pictures below.           

Vehicle Maintenance Questions

How to Ride

  • I am having trouble getting my bike cranked, can you help?
    • The most common reasons a bike will not start is because the kill switch is engaged, the battery is dead, or the bike is not in neutral. Ensure the bike is in neutral, your battery is charged, and the kill switch is in the proper position, not engaged (pictured below). Still having trouble? Give us a call at 478-788-4551
  • When stopping my ATV, the front brakes are not halting the vehicle. Is this normal?
    • YES! The front hand brake is a helper brake only. The back foot brake is what stops the vehicle. Always use the foot and hand brake in tandem to bring the vehicle to a complete halt.

Chain Lube

  • What do I use to keep the chain lubed?
    • Motorcycle chain lube is highly recommended! It is water resistant and will stay on the chain better than any other lubes. This can be purchased from All Star-Scooters or any auto parts store.
  • How often/much should I lube my chain?
    • The chain should always be lubed, we recommend checking it each time before you ride. The chain should have enough grease that when you touch it, you get grease on your hands.
  • Can I use other lubes, like WD-40?
    • Yes, HOWEVER, the chain has a much higher chance of drying out and breaking. We highly recommend using only motorcycle chain lube for this purpose.

Oil

  • How do I check the oil?
    • Screw out the oil dipstick. Clean it with a cloth and put it back in place. Take the dipstick back out, your oil level should read within the hashmarks on the stick. When you are reading the oil level, it should be near max. Never on max as the engine will take in too much oil. If the engine is smoking, you have added too much oil. Still having trouble? Give us a call at 478-788-4551
  • When do I need to check my oil?
    • Check the oil after every 2 hours of riding. If it has gone down, add a little more back into it. This is ONLY required until it has undergone its 1st service. After it’s 1st service, check the oil periodically.
  • What kind of oil do I use?
    • Using your engine without proper oil will cause engine damage! We recommend using 10W40 Synthetic Oil. This can be purchased at All Star-Scooters or any auto parts store.

Gas

  • Do these vehicles use gas?
    • YES, all our vehicles use 93 octane premium gas or ethanol free gas.
  • What kind of gas do I put in my tank?
    • ALL vehicles use 93 octane premium gas or ethanol free gas. DO NOT USE regular or mid-grade gas or it will not run!

Battery

  • How do I keep my battery charged?
    • We recommend using a maintenance charger or a float charger for 12V batteries. These can be purchased at All Star-Scooters or from an auto parts store.
  • What if I do not plan on purchasing a charger?
    • Simply disconnect the battery if your vehicle will be sitting up for more than a couple of days. This keeps the vehicle from draining the battery of its power.
  • What size battery does my vehicle take?
    • All batteries will have a strand of letters & numbers located on the battery. Please refer to the chart below for battery sizing.
      YTX4L-BS Size 4
      YTX5L-BS Size 5
      KJJ7A-5 Size 7
      KJJ9-5 Size 9
      YTX14-BS Size 14
