Not all GY6 cylinders are the same
Something to watch out for is that different OEMs use different patterns.
Many OEMs are now using brand specific patters and in the USA there has a
been a rush to call everything GY6 a generic part, THEY ARE NOT. Xinguye
Linhai ZMD ZNEN QJ - VENTO all use different GY6 patters sometimes the same
OEM like ZNEN will buy cylinders from three different factories meaning not
all their 150cc units use the same engine parts. MRP now carries TNG
scooter parts and the TNG parts are not all the same some are from CF-MOTO,
QJ, ZNEN these are all different bolt patterns so DEALERS BEWARE when you
buy from sources that don't know all the factories this is what you will
face. PROBLEMS USE THE OEM NUMBERS ON OUR SITE WHEN ORDERING PARTS FROM US

SEARS SELLING SCOOTERS or another sign of the Apocalypse
The Scooter Apocalypse is upon us as Sears finally get's in bed with Baja (
didn't they just pay EPA a $5 million dollar fine for selling crap that was
illegal ) now I know for a fact Sears does not have a dealers license for
every location in Florida and this type of sale is illagal in several
states, they can't service these nor do they have parts in stock. Baja has
a terrible service policy. On assignment for Guidos Powersports Blog -
In case you missed it we know Baja is run by some people with lots of
integrity since they would never knowingly sell cheap stuff and not provide
warranty on site, I mean when you think of quality you think of Baja Right?
Sears was once the centerpiece of Vespa scooters in America. What happened?
How have the mighty fallen so far? I mean I understand Walmart doing this
cheap Chinese scooter thing but SEARS?
Just another sign of the times....
In case you missed it:
Last April Pep Boys has agreed to pay $5 million in civil penalties thank
to its association with Baja Motorsports. The company had to agree to take
corrective measures to settle claims that it violated the federal Clean Air
Act by importing and selling Chinese motorcycles, ATVs and generators that
do not comply with environmental requirements, the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Justice Department announced Monday.
Baja Inc., which supplied the non-compliant vehicles to Pep Boys, is also
settling with the U.S., according to the Justice Department.
"Importers of foreign-made vehicles and engines must comply with the same
Clean Air Act requirements that apply to those selling domestic products,
and this settlement demonstrates that we will take strong action to ensure
that importers comply with their obligations," said Ignacia S. Moreno,
Assistant Attorney General for the Environment and Natural Resources
Division. "Under this settlement Pep Boys and Baja will not only pay a
civil penalty, but will offset the excess emissions from the vehicles and
engines already sold and take steps that go beyond what the law requires to
ensure that their future imports and sales meet Clean Air Act standards."
This is the largest vehicle and engine importation case brought by the
United States to date under the Clean Air Act, both in number of vehicles
and engines imported and penalty paid. The complaint, filed simultaneously
with the settlement in federal court in the District of Columbia, alleges
that Pep Boys and Baja imported and sold at least 241,000 illegal vehicles
and engines from 2004 through 2009.
The agreement requires Pep Boys to export or destroy over 1,300
non-compliant vehicles and engines, and to mitigate the adverse
environmental effects of equipment already sold to consumers, estimated at
620 tons of excess hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide emissions, and more than
6,520 tons of excess carbon monoxide emissions. Under the settlement, Pep
Boys will implement projects to offset the excess emissions including
offering discounted push or electric lawn mowers in exchange for older more
polluting gas-powered mowers.
The complaint alleges that at least 45 vehicle and generator models
imported and sold by Pep Boys and Baja were not certified to meet federal
emission standards, and that Pep Boys failed to provide purchasers with the
full emission-system warranty required by the Clean Air Act, and imported
and sold vehicles and engines without the proper emission control
The vehicles and engines were built by more than 35 different manufacturers
in China. EPA and U.S. Customs & Border Protection discovered the
violations through inspections conducted at Pep Boys stores, at U.S. ports,
and through a review of importation documents the company provided to EPA.
The settlement also requires Pep Boys and Baja to offer a free extended
emission warranty on certain vehicle and engine models, to reimburse
consumers for emission-related repair expenses, and to implement rigorous
corporate compliance plans. Baja also agreed to pay a penalty of $25,000,
an amount that was reduced substantially in light of Baja's current
The settlement is part of an ongoing effort by EPA to ensure that all
imported vehicles and engines comply with Clean Air Act requirements. Pep
Boys is a national automotive aftermarket and service chain with annual
sales of $1.9 billion. The company operates more than 580 stores in 35
states and Puerto Rico. In 2008, the company, based in Philadelphia, was
the third largest importer of Chinese-made all terrain vehicles (ATVs) in
the United States. In 2006 and 2007, Pep Boys was the fourth largest
importer of generators.
Baja, based in Phoenix, contracts with Chinese manufacturers to supply ATVs
and motorcycles to Pep Boys and others. Baja also manages all after-sale
functions, including servicing warranty claims and providing replacement
parts for these vehicles.
Chinese Scooter Review. Should you buy one?
I bought a Chinese "sport" scooter about a month ago and I decided to make
a vid telling you if these cheap bikes are a good deal or not. I go
through the good and bad and give my final thoughts on these very
VAPOR LOCK ISSUE ON ZNEN CHINA SCOOTERS
Ive been in the industry a couple of years and when the scooter didnt start
the first thing I suspected was the carb, I didnt bother looking at the gas
cap. This is a new quality issue affecting private label ZNEN China
A known issue of ZNEN China imported private label brands appears to be
Vapor Lock. This is quite dangerous and you could easily die, get someone
killed, more than likely cause a really bad accident. So check all your gas
caps before riding. Its a known quality control issue in China.
You can drill a hole in your existing gas cap to solve the issue, but more
than likely the easiest thing is to buy a gas gap that is pre-drilled.
So if you have an Astro, Italica, Mod, Baccio, TNG, or any other ZNEN
private label imported bike check the cap.
