Great scooter,covers all bases

I’ve had this scooter for 8 mths now,and couldn’t be happier.
The standard suspension isn’t too bad for average putting around, but as I like to ride it a bit harder I’ve installed YSS rear shocks and YSS springs in the forks.
This has transformed the scooter a lot, it’s now much better and confidence inspiring when riding in the country backroads.
Good for longer weekend rides, storage is great and the fuel economy is great.
I added a comfort seat and an Akro pipe.
This is definitely a keeper.
I can see this staying in my garage a long time.
So yes, I can recommend this scooter without hesitation.
My first service cost me $167.00 at Excite Motorcycles in Penrith, NSW.

Purchased in June 2019.

Hi Peter, great to see another owner enjoying his XMAX300. Could you please share how much did the suspension upgrade cost and where did you get it done?
Thanks

I bought it from Suspensions R Us in Melbourne.
They are great to deal with and happy to answer any question after you purchase as well.
My set up cost about $1,100 or so, plus having the front suspension installed as well, about $400.
The front end is a lot better, be careful with the rear spring weight, as it can be a bit hard.
I’d quote your weight as 10kg lighter and use the shock settings for further adjustment .
Good luck.

Hi Peter, thanks for your post. I own one and two things I don't like about it is the seat and the front suspension. The front feels strange to me. I've owned lots of bikes and ridden the Honda 300 scooter, the Honda was much better in terms of suspension. Did the suspension upgrade fix that odd spongy feeling in the steering?

Hi Charlie. I’ve only had the first service which was about $200. It’s a simple motor to service and the manual shows you how to change the oil, so I will probably do the next one myself.
