Motor scooter batteries provide a steady feed of electricity for all lighting and other electrical components, as well as provide a charge for the starter. Batteries, after time and extended usage, can go out and must be replaced. The battery assembly on most 150cc motor scooters is actually quite accessible, making replacement a simple process that requires only basic tools and 5 to 10 minutes of time.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Park your scooter in an area where it can stand securely.

  2. 2

    Use your key to unlock the scooter's seat. Then lift the rear of the seat to pull it up. Set the seat aside.

  3. 3

    Use a flathead screwdriver to remove the positive and negative terminals from the battery. Once the terminals are loosened, they should simply slide off the battery posts.

  4. 4

    Lift the battery out of its housing and set it aside.

  5. 5

    Place the new battery into the housing and replace the positive and negative terminals. Be sure to match up positive (red) with positive, and negative (black) with negative. Doing so incorrectly could damage the battery or the vehicle's electrical systems.

  6. 6

    Replace the seat by sliding the front end of the seat into its groove on the housing and then pressing the back down until it clicks into place.

Tips and warnings

  • Having another person holding up the scooter as you work on it can be helpful.
  • Be aware of pinch points when working around scooter parts.
