Curious about scooter ownership or about us? Find some answers below.
Is Campus Scooter located near any bus stops?
Yes. Campus Scooter is located near CATA Bus Stops
What if my scooter tips over?
If your scooter tips over for any reason, oil could find its way into parts of the scooter that it shouldn’t go. The best thing is to sit it back up and let stand for at least a few hours. If the scooter is not running right after a spill get it to a mechanic immediately.
Do you offer transportation to and from Campus Scooter?
Can you repair all scooters?
Unfortunately, we cannot fix all Chinese scooters. Some manufacturers have gone completely out of business or simply do not supply replacement parts for the scooters they produced. We work with the best parts suppliers in the business, and stock nearly every mechanical part to service our scooters, but we cannot guarantee that all parts will be available to fix your scooter if you didn’t purchase it from us.
How fast do your scooters go?
Our scooters miles per hour are typically based on the size of the motor, how heavy the unit is, and the weight of the driver and passenger. Most 49cc scooters average between 30 and 40 miles per hour.
Do you need to premix gas and oil for your scooters?
Do you need a motorcycle license to drive your scooters?
No. In the State of Michigan, any scooter under 50cc only requires an operators license. A moped license can be obtained for riders starting at age 15.
Do you stock parts or can you get parts for scooters?
Yes. We stock many mechanical and electrical parts for our scooters. If we don’t have a part in stock, we have several suppliers we deal with directly to make sure we can get parts for our scooters as well as scooters purchased elsewhere. Parts covered under warranty come to us directly from the manufacturer.
How do you handle warranties?
Will a scooter make me look fat?
No. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. A scooter’s svelte lines and balanced proportions have an amazing “slimming” effect on the rider. That is something that can be appreciated by dudes and dudettes of all shapes and sizes.
Is it okay to laugh and make fun of people at the gas station while refueling?
Is Campus Scooter affiliated with any other local retail or scooter repair shop?
Absolutely not! If anyone claims they work for Campus Scooter and they aren’t working directly out of our main shop they are lying. Beware of such claims and please report them to us if you ever have reason to believe that someone is posing as an employee of Campus Scooter. You can contact us here.
Do you service and repair scooters that you did not sell?
Yes, in fact over 90% of our service repair work is on scooters Campus Scooter did not sell. The majority of the repairs are on pre-owned scooters and newly purchased “cheap” scooters. Some Chinese — Honda, Yamaha, Aprilia, Vespa, Piaggio, Genuine, SYM, Kymco and most other brands! Sometimes we can not repair scooters / mopeds built before 2000 for parts are generally scarce or no longer made.

Who handles warranty labor charges?
Do your scooters come with a title?
Yes. Once the scooter is paid in full, you will receive a title and bill of sale which shows that you paid sales tax. Take these 2 papers to the Secretary Of State for registration. It is only a $15 registration in the State of Michigan that lasts for 3 years.
Are all sales final?
All scooters sales are final. They are titled and ownership and responsibility are transferred to the purchaser. All of our scooters are put together by a Campus Scooter mechanic, given a 12-point inspection by our Service Manager and ready to ride after point of sale. If the scooter has any issues not caused by user error, a crash or excessive wear and tear, vandalism and theft and the user purchased one of our available warranties, we will work with the manufacturer and mechanic to ensure warranty claims are honored according to the terms of the warranty. Our goal is that all of our customers who purchased warrantied scooters are completely satisfied. We also offer a 30 day satisfaction guarantee where we cover all mechanical costs (parts and labor) on any new purchase as long as scooter is not damaged by a crash, excessive wear and tear, vandalism, theft and/or user error.
Are helmets required to ride your scooters?
In the State of Michigan, if you are 18 or older helmets are optional for 50cc or less scooters. We highly recommend a DOT approved helmet to be worn at all times. We do stock several helmets at our shop in a range of colors and styles.
What kind of gas mileage can I expect from your scooters?
Average mileage on one of our 49cc gas scooters is between 80 to 100 MPG. Some users get over 100 MPG.
What if my scooter gets body damage?
If your scooter gets body damage or it gets any cosmetic damage for any reason once it leaves the store, the Campus Scooter and mechanical warranty does not cover this type of damage. We do stock many parts and can special order body parts for damaged scooters. If a scooter is crashed in any matter, the entire mechanical warranty will be voided.
Do you load or unload scooters for people?
No. We can not offer to help load and unload scooters for people. When picking up or dropping off your scooter please make sure to have sufficient help to load or unload your scooter.
