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,
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
Motobravo MP-150 LKY
I love the bike. I have put about 30 miles a day on it since I got it and no problems what-so-ever. My only regret is that I took so long to order it and its getting cold now!
I was a little nervous about ordering a motorcycle on line,but with the help of J.R. I was very comfortable after talking with him.The bike came all packed up like they say. There was not a single scratch,I was very pleased with the service and would recommend thrifty scooters to anyone looking to buy a bike or scooter over the internet.The assembly was rather simple and any questions I had J.R. was available either by phone or e-mail.Thanks again Bill Casper williamstown N.J.
Motoravo Paparazzi MP-150
I had been trying to obtain a speedometer cable for my Motobravo Paparazzi 150cc scooter through my repair shop for months. After trying many web sites I found Thrifty Scooters and got excellent service at a good price. My cable was delivered over an extended weekend, and I'm back to riding. Thanks for your prompt and gracious help.
Zongshen GS 250
I Own two Zongshen Motorcycles.. a 200cc storm and Gs250 street bike... they are a blast... the GS 250 developed a problem and has sat for a while waiting for a part which turned out to be the (stator) which I hadn't been able to find. JR hooked me up with a new stator and sent it right out! Thanks for saving my riding time this summer on a great bike! If you need it JR can find it for ya and get it to you quick! Thanks JR!
Road Warrior 250cc
I was a little worried about ordering a motorcycle on line. However after speaking to you on the telephone I placed the order for the "Road Warrior Chopper"
I gotta tell you I did not believe it when I removed the cover containing "Baby" that's what I call her now. The pictures on line do not really show off Baby's curves and sleek lines.
Easy assembly to get her ready for the road. While putting on her finishing touches people stopped by asking many questions. My friend, a Harley rider, eyed Baby and said I can't believe got got that much motorcycle at such a great price. Baby and I will hit the road soon and I know that eyes will pop as we go by.
Jr, I can not thank you enough for all the help answering my many questions and for your support. You and Baby have put back the desire of a 64 year old man requiring oxygen 24/7.
Oh by the way Baby is the only one in Abilene Texas.

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.
MC 95-250 is Beautiful!
Thank you J.R for your great customer service! Very honest and informative about the product and shipping details. My bike came untouched and very well handled and fast. 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!

Seaseng 125cc dirt bike
I appreciate JR's efficient and knowledgeable service. I had a lot of difficulty finding someone who could supply parts for a Seaseng dirt bike. JR'S Knowledge about the products he handles and his quick response to questions made it a snap to get the items I needed. His pricing and prompt shipping are great. I will use Thrifty Scooters when ever I need parts for the Seaseng 125cc dirt bike.
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
Buying a scooter over the internet is a little scary. JR gave me all of the right information and made the buying process easy. My scooter arrived within a week of the order date. Some assembly was required for my scooter, but I was prepared for that. JR helped me and was very responsive for all of the little questions and details I was looking for. All in all, a very positive experience.

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.
