Scooter Upgrades & Performance Enhancements

During the scooter season (April - October), we receive many service requests. We ask that you call us in advance to make an appointment for service. Doing this will ensure that we can provide the best service possible. Thanks!

Are you ready to add a little more scoot to your scoot? How does 6-9 mph top speed sound? Want to go 63 mph instead of 54? How does pulling away from the pack faster sound? Better acceleration to get up to cruising speed faster? If you are ready, so are we, with some of the best after market performance upgrades available for your scooter. *note these prices/parts are quoted for SYM/Lance 125cc & 150cc scooters*
