Change the oil hot (warm)
What oil are you using?
I change my oil every 2,000Km - no way would I run it 8,000Km (5,000 miles)

Wolf Classic 150 / Oil Change, Hot or Cold?
« Last post by ChairmanMaose on December 13, 2017, 11:49:11 PM »
What do you guys and gals recommend when doing an oil change? Run the engine or don't run the engine before the change? I'm using an synthetic motor that doesn't need to be changed every 5000 miles and there's no way I put that kind of mileage on that bike running errands over the course of 9 months. I was considering leaving the oil in it over the winter. It seems like such a waste changing it.

Part of what Red's suggesting there would help point out a potential parasitic drain somewhere in the bike itself.
That'd happen regardless of how the charging system works, so really that's not a bad idea to try.

If the battery still discharges when then you either have evil demonic mice, for which you'll want a feline exorcist (please video the battle), or the battery has an odd internal short or other defect.  Those do happen, & can happen as easily on a new battery as a used one.  It'd be weird sure, but so is the overall issue.

Hi thanks for the reply.
Battery is new & fully charged.
The battery has been tested the bike is charging it. Its not discharging.. been tested.
Its very odd.. could it be starter motor or ignition.

'New' doesn't necessarily mean 'good.' You could try charging the battery and leaving it disconnected from the scooter to see if it's holding a charge...

Mio 50 / Re: De-restricting my 2005 SYM Mio 50cc

I'd say remove the green restricter from the bike, & redo the airbox since you may able to utilize the better flow with that out of the way & a new CDI.
k5 is kinda a watershed year so you're probably CDI restricted, but might not be.
Here's a nice rundown on how to check, & a link for a cheap kit.  There are probably others available, & not guarantees this will work well with the Mio.  You start doing that sort of thing and you're pretty much on your own.

Personally I just cheat and ride an HD200, but heck I wish ya luck in your endeavor.
Please do post whatcha come up with and how it works out for ya. :D

Cheers
