If your scooter tips over for any reason, oil could find its way into parts of the scooter that it shouldn’t go. The best thing is to sit it back up and let stand for at least a few hours. If the scooter is not running right after a spill get it to a mechanic immediately.
Our scooters miles per hour are typically based on the size of the motor, how heavy the unit is and the weight of the driver and passenger. Most 49cc scooters average between 30-40/MPH.
All of our scooters come with a manufacturers mechanical parts warranty. View the scooter pages for additional details.
We handle warranty claims by working with our customers to fill out a simple parts request. Sometimes the manufacturer requests to pull the part and send it to them. Shipping charges may apply. Once the replacement part is received our mechanic will install the new part at our discounted customer hourly rate. If a mechanic other than a Campus Scooter mechanic works on a scooter, it voids the warranty. If a scooter is involved in an accident it voids all warranties.

Yes all scooters sales are final. They are titled and ownership and responsibility are transferred to the purchaser.
