How to Identify a Bent Scooter Frame

How to Identify a Bent Scooter Frame

A scooter is a specific type of motorcycle which has a step-through frame and a platform to place your feet. The materials that comprise scooter frames range from heavier metals, such as steel, to lighter cast aluminum frames. After a heavy accident, a twisted headstock, bent frame tubes or flaking paint are all signs of a possible bent frame. Identifying a bent aluminum frame is more difficult and cannot be accurately done simply by looking at it.

Instructions

    1

    Search the body for any chipped paint, bent frame tubes or a twisted headstock.

    2

    Find the swingarm, which is the part at the rear wheel which provides the pivot point and mounting location for the rear suspension.

    3

    Measure the distance from the front wheel to the right-hand side swingarm.

    4

    Measure the distance from the wheel to the left-hand side swingarm.

    5

    Compare the two measured distances to make sure they are equal. If they are not equal, you likely have a bent frame.
