If you didn't change your scooter oil before storing it away for the winter last fall, it's time to change the engine oil. Your scooter will thank you for your kindness.
If you own a Vespa ET4 scooter with a Leader engine, I typed up two oil change procedures. One is a written guide while the other is a step by step picture guide.
The written guide can be found at Yahoo! Voices at:
How to Change the Engine Oil in Your Vespa ET4 Scooter
The pictorial guide is posted at Helium.com at:

Have plenty of paper towels and hand cleaner available. Changing the oil can get really messy sometimes.
I like Motul 5w40 300V 4T oil for my scooter. There are several other scooter oil brands around that also provide excellent engine lubrication and protection. Whatever you do, don't scrimp on price for quality oil.
