Too Fat?

I was looking at the manual for my 2002 Yamaha Vino Classic and it says and I quote " THe total weight of the operator,accessories and cargo must not exceed the maximum load limit of 75kg (165 lb.). Is there anything I can do to make it support more weight or do I join Jenny Craig? I'm over 200 lb by myself

Time to trade up.

Being that you are a bit on the large side, you should look at that BEFORE you buy the scooter. Just a suggestion.

You may be able to change/adjust the suspension. I don't know anything mechanical about scooters. Sorry for the threadjack - it just seemed funny that you're asking if you're too fat. I wonder what horrible things will happen when you ride it. Also, if you bought it new, I'm surprised the salesman didn't tell you it had a weight limit.

Send a message via AIM to Scorpio
I wouldn't worry about it, but yes they make stronger shocks for most scooters. Look up battlescooter.com and see what they have.

My 4wheeler was automatic but it was belt driven on a clutch. Your scoot scoot might be the same.

I wouldn't have posted in your thread unless I was sure of what I was posting...check this out. Your scooter has a lot of aftermarket support by the way. http://www.scooterpartsplace.com/ath...zuma-vino.aspx

You can put a pipe on it, change the springs and rollers to match and gain another 1/2 hp to go with your 2 1/2.
