How to Change Your Kymco People S200 Drive Belt

As the weather (seemed) to be improving, many weeks ago I changed out the belt on my scooter on advice from my scooter guy. I also ordered a new gasket that I’d change while I was in there. Here’s a quick guide on the steps – photos taken just for y’all. *Aww*

How to: Kymco People S200 Oil Change

I recently re-registered my scoot: a Kymco People S200. It’s been a blast, but after almost a year of not riding it; I thought I should give it some fresh oil.

Being the lazy, 8-hour desk job type that I am… I tried to surf the internet for where the drain bolt was located. I remembered it was different than what the owner’s manual had down. After a few Google searches, I couldn’t find what I was looking for… so I just went for it! Luckily – it was the correct bolt! Oh, by the way… these instructions most likely work for a People S50 and S125 as well (as they all have the same owner’s manual instructions).

Change Your Kymco People S200 Spark Plug

Yes, I’d probably put money (the little that I have) on it — I’m probably the only scooterist sporting the Taiwanese look in Utah. I wear it proudly with my halfsies helmet, tinted visor, sunglasses and Spider-man face mask. Could I possibly be the only one in the US too? Well, if you ever see me around town, talk me up (as others have) or wave hello!

Okay, let’s get on with it, shall we? The other day, I changed out my spark plug — did a lil’ self maintenance and trouble-shooting. I’ve been having issues with my scoot stalling on me and someone suggested I switch out the spark plug.

Thanks to fellow blogger Peanut Butter Scooter Time, I had a fairly decent idea of what I was doing. His directions are awesome — but I took a few extra photos and decided to do a tutorial in my own words.
