My first maintenance issue: My 2009 Kymco Agility 125

By
Real Estate Agent with Charles Rutenberg Realty - Naperville

I bought a scooter about 5 weeks ago.  I have been loving it.  My confidence grows with every ride.  It is the most fun I have had since I was a kid...

Last night, while visiting a friend, my scooter had its first maintenance issue.  The headlight was out...

What would I do?  Looks like we were having a sleepover...

This morning, after an exhilarating ride back home, I started reading all I could about Kymco headlights.  Without any directions, I grabbed a screwdriver (a large phillips) and headed off to Autozone...

I started taking my scooter apart in the parking lot... 

 

Changing the headlight on my Kymco

 

It really wasn't that hard.  7 screws and the front panel comes off.  Twisting the circular thing gets you into the headlight...

Fortunately, a large affable man who LOVED scooters approached at this time.  He owned a motorcycle, but seemed jealous of my machine.  Experienced with engines, he assisted in the removal of the lightbulb itself.  It only required a confident twist, but I wasn't that confident...

After driving to a couple different stores, I found Naperville Motorsports, and the owner helped me find the right bulb.  $5.90 out the door...

I put the headlight back together, tightened up those same 7 screws...

And we had light...

Again, I found fixing the light to be a good experience.  Not too hard.  And it is alway nice learning new things...

I love my scooter.

Hi Doug.  Thanks!  I am thinking of getting a rear trunk and putting some marketing stuff on it!

Thanks again!

Ken,

Nice looking scooter. I have been pondering buying something a little bit smaller than my Honda Fit for a while now. I would be a fair weather rider but it would make running to the store a whole lot less expensive =)  Do they come with cup holders? I have to have my coffee with me at all times.
