Downtown 300 / Re: CHECKING MY BELT?
« Last post by Nireen on Today at 06:17:14 AM »
OK good I am now at 13000 km's :)  I think the belt looks good.  I have made a video and will show it soon.

Owner's manual suggests the main belt to be replaced at every 20,000kms.

I am curious as to how long do we normally get before having to replace the belt?

I am located in Malaysia, the Downtowns here do not have the front signals at the front of the side mirrors, ours are those in the main headlight housing next to the high beams as your described.

I notice a tare/split in the outside gasket sealer.  How can I repair?  Is it OK?

OK got it off but how now do I turn it so I can view the whole belt?

Mine was difficult to get it too. As has been suggested, a few decent taps from a rubber mallet will start to move it. If you look underneath the casing you will see a pry point. Using a sturdy screwdriver, pushed not too far into it, gently separate the casings.

Some consider the black panel under the rear plate to be least attractive area on any scooter/motorcycle. Painting it white will certainly draw attention to it.
I'd  continue the white down the sides of the front leg shield,  and return bottom sides to black.  Committee design decisions brought us the Edsel.....and those goofy names on some Kymcos! °¿° !!
Advise you to keep on doing your own thing....which I suspect you will....the world doesn't need another Edsel, or a bet and win, like , bean dip, happy 250 or Noodoe EFi 127.
Ride safe,

Pretty cool. Thanks to you both for posting.
Our fellow scooter riders in the far Pacific sure have lots of rides to choose from. That is as it should be......we gringos barely give scooters a thought in this country, judging by the small numbers of them we buy each year.
I am in Florida at present - and understand why so many Chinese scooters are putting about the streets here. Cheap, and they get you where you need to go with some basic upkeep.

Technical | How To / Re: Sourcing panel spares after crash!
« Last post by Stig on Today at 04:18:19 AM »
My condolences to your son!
And to his scooter (long time LIKE200I  rider here).
There are lots of used LIKE parts and panels for sale on USA eBay....most are too pricey compared to new from Kymcopartsmonster. Then there'd be the shipping cost.
Hopefully you will be able to source some parts from a wrecker yard, or get some leads from local scooter repair shops?
His is not the first LIKE to go down in your country....so, chin up - things will work out.
Having dealt with a son who recently dropped his Honda bike, I  know what you both are going through.
Good luck,
Stig, in Ohio
