Parts & Repair
Great looking bike
I received my motobravo 150cc scooter a couple of weeks ago as promised. It was delivered on time with no problems. The bike arrived in good condition from CA. I haven't had a chance to take it for a ride. I'm waiting for parts I ordered to up grade and tag. JR Wolters keep up the great work and I'll be recommending your business to my family and friends.
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 🙂
I was concerned.
I get uneasy buying things over the internet. Everytime I had any concern or need JR went out of his way to help me. He promply responds to every email or phone call on the same day. I am so very pleased with my purchase. Thank you very much Thrifty Scooters.
Roketa 260 cc ATV

Thanks very much!
Roketa 110cc Engine Knowledge
I've been a mechanic for 40 years, and I know most engines have characteristics that make each one unique, and some can even be difficult. The Rocketa 110cc Go-Kart I worked on wasn't starting, so I called JR for advice. He ran down all the usual troubleshooting, and then came up with just a small comment about the air filter needing to be attached in order to start the engine. I attached the air filter, and it started! JR saved me a lot of self-doubt and wasted time with his expert knowledge of these engines. Thanks, JR!

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
Ice Bear 250cc Road Warrior
JR has been awesome to work with right from the beginning. My trike arrived within a week of ordering it and she was in great condition on arrival. Eventhough there were no instructions that came with the trike on how to assemble it, we had it put together in no time. Every time I've had a question, JR has been quick to either call me back or e-mail me to help me in any way he can. I can't tell you how many people stop to look at my "Vixen" every time I take her out for a ride. The trike met my expectations and I'm having a blast on her. My front fender just recently got broken, so I'm currently waiting to see if I can get a replacement. Thrifty Scooters and JR have been great to do business with.... highly recommended!
Contacted JR for a seat for my scooter, he made me a great deal,ensured I was gonna get the right one and it was shipped fast and well packaged.
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.
Motobravo DB-200 XY
Hats off, helmets on,to JR! He found me the parts I was desperatley looking for! I bought an enduro DB-200 XY bike that got layed down, and needed a few odd parts. He made things happen to get the parts,and to get my bike back on the road.
Happy in Florida
Roketa 110 cc Go-Kart
JR - Thanks for your help on identifying and getting the head gaskets and rings for me for the Roketa 110cc Go-Kart! I couldn't find much information on my own, even on the internet, and you furnished everything I needed, and in a very timely manner, too. You're at the top of my list for parts and information!

Chinese Scooter Parts
You are very informative, you can troubleshoot a problem without a hesitation. You are helpfull in every which way. I can't thank you enough.
I purchased an instrument cluster from Thrifty Scooters for my Motobravo Paparazzi 150 to replace the original. Installed it and found the speedometer/odometer didn't work. Emailed JR to return the new unit. However, JR suggested I make some tests first before I went to the expense of returning the unit.
Ran the tests and everything looked good. Further emails with JR got me thinking and I discovered the speedometer was only sluggish. After working with it, it improved to the point of providing accurate readings.
JR saved me a lot of time and expense. He was unusually responsive and helpful. In my experience this kind of help and service is very unusual. I will certainly buy all of my needed parts from Thrifty Scooter.
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.

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.

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.
