What do I need to do to a 4 stroke moped?

Question by Jane D: What do I need to do to a 4 stroke moped?
If I were to buy a 4 stroke moped, I would not have to mix the fuel with oil correct? Is there any other routine maintenance that I should know about?

You are correct in a 4 stroke engine you do not have to add 2-cycle oil to the fuel. However, you will have to change the crankcase oil on a regular basis, which should be easy to do. also change the spark plug and maintain the tire pressure and lube the chain with special chain lube. All of which should be in your owners manual.

    Don’t forget to change/clean the air filter, and if it has one, change the fuel filter. If it doesn’t have one, buy a plastic inline one at the local parts store… old gas tanks corrode on the inside and the rust will foul up the carb.
    Check the front fork seals make sure they’re not leaking (look over the whole bike for leaking oil for that matter). And check / change the brake pads so you wont find out the hard way it doesn’t stop. Lube the throttle cable (tool available at motorcycle parts stores) and same with brake cable. You’ll be good for a couple years if you keep it maintained and outta the weather when parked.

    4 strokes usually have a oilfilter and engine oil

    2 strokes usually need fuel mixed, no oil filter no engine oil
