Having changed the oil on my baotian I noticed that you get some metal flakes in the bottom of the large sump plug.

I'm looking for a small magnet that I can stick in the bottom of the sump plug in order to collect any small metal pieces and stop them from doing any damage to the engine.

Sometimes prevention is better than the cure cheaper too.


One fo the Chinese custom motorbikes we used to sell had this as standard and I'm sure the drain plug is the same size for scooters I'll look in to it the bike in question was the Pioneer Nevada 125cc

If it's the thimble shaped gauze thing either wash it carefully in washing up liquid and dry it thoroughly before replacing, or wash it in petrol and dry it for a few minutes before refitting.

I thought that most sump plugs were magnatised anyway. Question

Well, I guess I am another owner that knows very little about what he has and how to maintain it. I need the capacities of my SL50QT-7 Scooter.
1. Motor oil?
Also the weight recommended would be nice?
2. Gear Oil?
Also the weight recommeded would be nice?
3. Tire air pressure?
4. Anything else I need to keep in mind for the maintance of my Scooter?
Thanks a whole lot for your help. I didn't even get the right Owners manual with mine. Also would like to know where I might get a Owners and Maintenance Manual?

cylinders are generally cast alloy with a hard chrome coating, which is ground down to size.
pistons are cast alloy.
rings are cast steel.
chrome is harder that steel.
thats why rings wear quicker than the cyl.

debrit in engine is casting material from new.
it will go after a few oil changes.

YES it is true that a two stroke does not have a crankcase oil drain Exclamation A two stroke does not hold lubricating oil in the crankcase like a four stroke does. A two stroke is lubricated by the oil that is mixed with the fuel, either by oil injection or by directly mixing oil with fuel in the tank. That means that there is no crankcase oil drain on a two stroke.

Chinese scoots have a screen that looks like a thimble that's located at the bottom of the sump. Look under the right side of the motor. It's #6 in the diagram. Most folks only check it while breaking the scooter in. Once you're up and running, if that screen catches any metal, you've got problems.
