I've been away from the scooter scene for a while with medical issues and a couple bigtime area relocations and went to Scrappydog to order a cylinder kit for a Minarelli 2 stroke and they don't answer the phone and no response to emails. Did they go out of business? It used to be I could ride down to their store in 10 minutes but that was a couple years and a couple thousand miles ago.
Yep it's a long painful story with quite a few people getting burned,,,too bad too they used to be a decent vendor,,,it had to do with family medical emergency,,,and a certain employee,,,,it's a cryin shame

Yep it is a shame, I always dealt with the gals in the storefront and they ALWAYS treated me right. Sometimes they would even point other customers my way if they had a tech question.
The reason I was checking out the website was to maybe find an oil pump for my Velocity 2 stroke if I need one. This scooter has been sitting for most of the last 2 years and it seems there is no oil flowing for the injection system. I took the hose off the manifold port and revved the motor and didn't see any oil coming out of the tube even if I left it off for as long as 2 minutes. Right now I have 50/1 gas/oil in the tank and have smoke out of the exhaust but figured I should see some come out of the tube.
I used Scrappydogs ALOT! This is not cool. In fact, was waiting on a CDI for the past month, that I will probably never receive. Who is everybody's go to now? I have many ebay vendors. Just wanting to see where other people are getting hard to find scooter parts.
