My First Foray into Scooter Repair

After sitting out most of the summer with a mysterious gas leak, my Kymco People 50 scooter finally demanded that I fulfill my promise to fix it. I thought about pushing it up a piece of 2×4 into the bed of the truck and taking it to the shop, but instead went with my original idea to fix it myself. I used my new camera (a Canon A590 IS) to document the process in case I went wrong somewhere.
Though I didn’t need my digital breadcrumbs — it was an easy fix and an easy reassembly — I did post them to the Flickr account I’ve had for years and never used. You can see the six-step repair process here.
