Parts & Repair
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.
I needed some parts for my JL250P. The seller I originally purchased the bike from no longer sells them. After some searching, I found Thrifty Scooters. They were able to order the parts I needed, shipped them promptly. I'm very happy. I will definitely do business with them in the future.
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.

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.

Jonaway YY250T parts
For the past month I have been trying to find parts for my Jonway YY250T scooter, after laying it dowm to avoid crashing into a cager that ran a red light. Thrifty Scooters really came through for me, I had been searching the internet trying to find all the parts I needed. Thrifty Scooters had everything that I had to have to repair my scooter. What was neat, was having the boss, JR, personally help me in my quest to repair my scooter, this really means a lot to me. When the day comes to buy my next scooter, Thrifty Scooters will get my business. John Ried
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!!!!
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!

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.

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.

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.
