Parts & Repair
He is just a cool and total polite guy. He was in the middle of moving and still took the time to give me great service. He is extremely knowledgeable about his line of work. The prices are always reasonable and JR def. will shoot you straight.
Thanks for your great customer service.
JR for President
Big brain fart day had me ordering two headlight assemblies instead of just the one I wanted. What other vendor would see that as a red flag and call to question it? No one I ever encountered on the Internet until Thrifty Scooters. JR& Co. recognize what others do not. Integrity is what wins business and keeps more customers. Your average shabby vendor gets rich quick but blows it in the long run. Thrifty has all my scooter business (guaranteed since I cannot help but tinker with things I should not)and they should be around for along time. Thanks peace, love, dove and 60mpg scootering.
DB-07 200cc Enduro
Got the bike on Friday. It arrived in perfect shape, the metal frame inthe box took a hit, but in a good place where it could not have hit thecontents. The only damage I noticed was that the front axle bolt wasslightly bent, which I noticed only when turning it, but it didn't seemto affect installation fit or performance so I didn't worry about it. Anyway, bottom line, the bike is awesome! I followed all instructions andcarefully put it all together over two days including tightening/checkingall bolts, using loctite including on the front axle and lower suspensionlinks, changing the oil, oiling the air filter and adjusting/testing allcables and electrics. Fired it up yesterday and put 13 slow and carefulbreak in miles on it riding it around the self storage facility. It ridesbeautifully and has great power, sound feel etc. I'm not sure how long itwill last but right now it feels and rides to me just a like a Honda. Infact, I have to say I'm generally quite impressed with the quality of themost of components. The only exceptions are the gas cap and the headlightwhich appear a little crude, but no complaints. One additional thing, Inoticed some websites had a line in the specs for remote start/remotealarm and all listings I saw said "no", but guess what, this one hasboth, including two key fobs with lock/unlock, start, and alarm and theyall work great! You should probably include that in your listings, if you can rely on it. On a side note: the box had a correct color picture ofthe bike, but listed the "ITEM NO." as "RDZ-200-BLACK AND WHITE (DB-07H).On the web the RDZ appears to be a dirt only bike, so once again it seemslike the Chinese are still working on model designations but in this caseit all turned out well. Overall I'm very satisfied, thought you shouldknow. Thx, JTW
MC-95-250 cc Spider Replica
My Red MC-95-250cc Spider Replica I purchased from Thriftyscooters is a real attention grabber. JR has been prompt and helpful in responding to my questions about assembly. maintenance, and paper work. I love riding this bike! I would definitely recommend this company for future purchases. Check out my pictures on this site.
Very Good Company to Deal with' We purchased a Roketa MC-51 250cc Street bike and I plan on buying another motorcycle from them for my son! Thank You.. James Linderman
Hello, Today was my first time ordering from ThriftyScooters, I ordered a waterpump for my Jonway 250, after ordering it I emailed Thrifty a question re: my order, lol before I could log off from their website I receive a call from a 208 area code and don't usually answer from strange numbers, luckily I picked up and it was JR calling me back THAT QUICK to answer my question. all i can say, is this is customer service at it's finest and I will continue to use JR and Thrifty from now on. Thanks JR have a good day.
My 150cc MC-04 Roketa scooter arrived in excellent condition and was packed so well that it took me two hours to remove all the bolts and nuts to move the scooter off the wooden skid. After removal, I saw it was more beautiful and complete than I had anticipated. The neighbors and my wife stated its appearance is beautiful, racy, futuristic and sexy. I agree. It would have helped,though, to have instructions on how to mount the trunk box. The rear view mirrors were relatively easy to mount. Now, I still need to add the battery and gas to ride, but I'll bet all the neighbors will be envious of this seventy-four-year-olds mode of transportation! Thanks JR for your support. Bob Hulse
Roketa 260 cc ATV
Thanks JR for all your help with the parts for the Roketa 260 ATV. I appreciate the effort that you put in. Cheers Austrailia Paul.
Thanks very much!
Buying a vehicle online was actually pretty scary. i was terrified it just wouldn't come and there would be nothing i could do about it. Overall im am very pleased with my purchase. I bought the Motobravo Leike/Roma. When it first came, getting it started was a problem. but after talking to JR and doing some tinkering here and there i got it working fine.
Roketa-64 300cc ATV repair
I went to JR with all kinds of issues with my Roketa atv-64 Sport 300cc that I purchased used from someone and never even got a chance to ride it in good condition. I had issues with the starter the rear shock was blown and it was falling apart and everything on it was loose. After looking at the atv for me JR assured me it would work like a totally different machine after he was done with it. After finding all the parts for the ATV at a very fair price JR asked me to bring it in. He fixed everything for me and I got the atv back the next day! I have tested my atv it just around the neighborhood and so far it DOES ride like a totally different machine. I plan
on taking it out this weekend and tearing it up I am confidant I wont have any more problems.... This IS THE MAN TO GO TO FOR FOR ALL YOUR OUTDOOR TOYS! I AM IMPRESSED!
Wheel for NST DB200 Enduro
I have to take a moment to say THANK YOU! I have been looking for rear wheels for my two NST DB200 Enduros for nearly nine months. I live near Salt Lake City, UT. I have talked to people all over the country from Florida to California to Washington. Most said they could not help me. A handful tried but were never able to deliver. Some even tried China. I even contacted the manufacturer. First they sent me the wrong wheel and then they told me they could not help me. I was pretty to surprised to hear that the manufacturer could not even help me.
JR, you have been the only person on this planet to help me. What makes it even better is the quality of the wheels. The spokes are a heavier gauge and the hub is a higher quality metal.
Thanks for coming through for me when no one else on the planet was able to help. You were great to work with. Your expertise with the DB200 really put me at ease. I thought I had made the biggest mistake in my life. You made me happy with my motorcycles again. I would recommend you to anyone.
Thanks again for your help,
You've been awesome. My Roketa Bali 150 cc scooter was down for nearly four months and in a repair shop where the guys could not find a fan for it. In addition to that they broke the first part I ordered from you, the inlet, but I wasn't worried about where to find one. You keep us rolling and I just want to say thanks.
KMD MUV 110cc
I just wanted to say that not only was this a great company to order from but the product and the customer service I have received was well beyond what I expected. I did not have to do a thing the utility vechicle (I call it a miniture Rhino)showed up ready to go, so all I did was put a red bow on it and surprise my son the next day. Thanks to JR my son had a wonderful birthday present on time (no thanks to me orderig it late...lol) but you took great care of us. Thank you again 🙂
MC 95-250 is Beautiful!

I got my MC 95-250 and my husband put her together and she is beautiful. Thanks J.R for making such a big purchase really worth the service you provided. I will surely spread the word. Thanks!

3-110cc & 1-125cc atv’s
I have to admit, I was very wary of ordering something so large blindly on line, BUT I'm very pleased with what I received! We ordered 3 110cc's and a 125cc, they came in less then a week, the 110's were very easy to put together and took more time to get out of the metal packing frame then anything else, the 125cc took slightly more time to assemble, only because the shocks were not bolted and it was slightly larger to move around, It took about three hours for four atv's, including taking them out of the packing. They look great, we charged the batteries and had a minor problem getting them all started, turns out gas wasn't getting to the carb, JR was helpful in returning phone calls and walking us through some trouble shooting to get them to work, when my husband got home he quickly had them going and off the kids went! We will be ordering again!!!!

Step 1: Place scooter on parking stand (stand is located towards the rear of scooter next to kick starter).
Step 2: Put key into ignition and turn it to the (on) position. Note: Make sure kill switch is in the (on) position.
Step 3: Put unleaded gas into scooter (premium gas recommended). Note: Make sure you have the fuel line connected to the carburetor. It is located on the left side of the bike underneath the seat. There is a compartment that exposes the carburetor and what you are looking for will be either a brass nub 3/4 of an inch long or a hollow nub. You may not see it, however, you should be able to feel it if you are standing on the left side of the bike.
Step 4: Kick start scooter 6-7 times to build compression. Note: Do not pull on throttle or it will flood the carburetor.
Step 5: Now use the electric start (hold in rear left brake lever and press button on right that looks like lightening bolt). Hold for 3-4 seconds. Note: Do not hold it in any longer than 5 seconds at a time or you will burn the starter.
Step 6: Repeat sequence 6-7 times.
Step 7: Once started, adjust idle speed if needed. Note: To adjust idle lift up seat and in engine compartment on the top towards the farthest side of the carburetor, is a Gold Phillip screw attached onto a spring. Turn clockwise until it is set to your preference.

We have been selling atv's for 15years and in that time we have only sold 2 50cc atv's. The reason is that the child quickly learns how to ride the atv and can't even climb out of a gutter on the sidewalk. The 90 cc and the 110 cc sell more to young riders. All 90 and 110cc atv’s have a safety throttle governor. This device is all well and good if the child doesn't listen. The important thing to understand is its all about training. The more time you spend training your child the more pleasure they will have with the ATV and the happier you will be with your purchase.
By training we mean the following:
1. Practice stopping and starting and make games out of it, like stopping on a line with the rear wheels touching and stopping on the line with the front wheels touching. spread out the lines until they have a football field of distance between lines.
2. Making a circular track. This will make your child slow down automatically around corners instead of you telling them to slow down.
Remember if you tell them they will not listen. If you make a game out of it they will learn control on their on terms.
