How to Check the Oil in a Scooter


Whether your scooter is powered by a, two-stroke motor or four-stroke motor, it relies on oil to lubricate its internal moving components. This requires your scooter to contain a certain amount of oil, that if left to diminish will create premature engine wear. Most scooter manufacturers have provided amenities to help you check the oil level.

Step 1

Start the motor and let it warm up to provide an accurate reading of the oil level. Turn the motor off once the scooter has warmed up.

Step 2

Lift the scooter into an upright, vertical position. Place the scooter on its center stand, if it is equipped.
