Time for a new belt on your Vespa scooter?

    Do you think it is time for a new belt on your scooter?  Some scooters need new belts sooner than others. Not sure if you need one? Call us, we can help. We know the change intervals on the belts for most bikes. We have a few tricks to tell you when it's time.

      One thing you don't want to do is let it go too long. Changing a belt that is still in one piece is a fairly simple, inexpensive job on most bikes. However, if  it comes apart while riding, the belt tends to wrap itself around everything in sight. As well as turn all its small bits to dust. This can take upwards of two hours to clean and remove. so, pay attention to that belt, or you will be paying for the shop time to fix it. Call us and we can tell you what to look for so you don't end up with a mess that looks like this.

Even after a ride through the parts washer we still have to unwrap the Kevlar cord which is now wrapped around the pulley under spring tension.

If your belt does explode; all is not lost. We have the tools and patience to clean everything and get it back to proper working condition. If it needs rollers, springs or sliders; we keep those in stock too.
 After some clean-up, and grease where needed, a little TLC from our mechanic, and things can be as good as new. Most importantly, it's time to ride again!

These guys do a lot of work, so keep the parts fresh.

If you think you might need a belt; give us a call or stop by. We ARE experts on the subject. 
Not only do we know what we are doing, but we are honest,too. 
We won't sell you what you don't need.
