My First Yamaha C3 Scooter

It’s been about weeks since I got my Scooter and I’m loving the freedom from the I’ve only filled up two so far, and both times, been able to fill up change in my pocket. The first of $5.14 did me for around 170KM’s and I’m that mileage will up as the engine breaks in more.

I’m in a neighborhood with a lot of hills like a bowl) so I’m sure has the potential to hurt my maximum gas which most people are that it’s around the of 200KM’s per fill up.

Since I’m not one to well enough alone, I had to do a few to my scoot to make it more and custom to my needs. While my is still under warranty, decided to just do mods increase my comfort on the bike.

The first thing that I immediately were the grips. The Yamaha grips were and uncomfortable. I swapped them out for Scott SX Motocross grips have a diamond pattern and are grippy for those times I’m stuck in the rain…like at Pink Dot Com Dim Sum.

I had some problems the left grip off because superglues it to the bar so I had to cut it off with a box cutter. The grip was also a nuisance the throttle is fluted so when I the grip on, it was a little bumpy. Its settled down so no problem.

My next upgrades came an online store called I shopped all around and not only did have a really good of parts, but they were reasonable. They also USPS so I wouldn’t get dinged ridiculous courier customs I categorically refuse to shop at any US that ships via UPS or FedEX. guys also shipped

Like literally, from the that I placed the order, the was on its way the next day. I watched the info they gave me as my came up to the border…and then was by Canada Customs for nearly a Stupid.

I Hate The Taste Of

From my order, I received a JDM windshield that is much than the hideously large style plexiglass thing Yamaha calls a windshield in accessory catalog. This is made from smoked and was actually quite thick. was quick and easy and only me to remove two bolts on my Yamaha C3 assembly. The bracket mounts it, and the windshield bolts to the bracket.

I was done in about 10 minutes.

I like the styling. I’ve some of the goofy full windshields and I have to say that I want to look much than I do already on my scooter. they might keep a few bugs off me and offer a little wind protection, but I’m sure I can live with the happy

So far, in my limited testing of windshield on my usual route to the office, I’ve picked up an 3 – 4 KM/h. On a scooter, that’s NOS…two bottles…

Covering Thy Ass…

The other I got was a JDM Yamaha Genuine C3 Seat This cover, made for the JDM Vox and European Giggle, fits the original seat and gives the area a little more and a bit more wet resistance. The cover is of smooth which aids in removal and prevents my … sticking to it on a warm day. I hated how the old seat would and not let go of my pants.

Fit and finish was good and like it belonged. Installation about 5 minutes.

Can’t Without the Proper Gear…

BattleScooter also included one of nifty Battlescooter T-Shirts. actually had a Battlescooter Ninja with a Ninja dude on it, but didn’t have my size. they’ll have some when I order from again.

These guys want to have one of their T-Shirts so it was a bonus to get one of them for free so I can my Scooter Lifestyle inspired

I Need Two Bottles and I Need By Tonight…

These did not come Battlescooter. They came 7-11. Although it would be (yet cool) to put a NOS fogging in my scooter, it doesn’t mean I can’t have two bottles I need to stay awake in traffic. At least the floor pan drop out of my scooter in the heat of

Yes folks, these are all reference to and the Furious” so go rewatch and enjoy my at Paul Walker and Vin Diesel’s What’s even more is that there is nothing or “furious” about a scooter.

Stay tuned for more adventures. Don’t forget to me and my scooter on Twitter to see what of mischief we’re up to.
