Hi Floyd,
I read above about adjusting the brakes after first few hundred miles. I know the previous owner did not do that, nor have I. I'm the gal with the 2012 prior accident Scamp 13 in Sanborn. What's involved in brake adjustment?

Me too. Also, make sure you don't mix dissimilar greases. Not all greases are compatible. I had one kind in one side & another kind in the other, so I disassembled both, cleaned them thoroughly, re-packed with Lucas Red & Sticky, and now after a 3 hour drive in mid-80's heat, stopped and had 110 degrees both hubs.

Thanks Clif! I checked out the video and doesn't look too complicated. Even still, for me, better to do with an experienced guy. Confidence issues until I do it once.

Cheers!

Wendy

Really not complicated, but you would do well to have someone experienced help you the first time.

You never know when the skill will come in handy on the road.
