I bought my magnum II, it has 2500 miles and a few scratches, but is
quite nice. A few questions:

causes it to start up again w/ just throttle. Is this a common
We plan to rip everything apart this week and clean, grease, oil, all
appropriate parts. Any words of advice?
Also are there any other moped riders/clubs in Maine (Portland)? It would
be nice to ride with someone else.
