Save Superscoot

So Superscoot, the 2006 Suzuki Burgman 400 scooter that I bought wrecked and rode 45000 miles in 3 years blew up today riding with my friends.

It appears a ring broke and pressurized the crankcase causing the gasket there to blow and eject all the oil. This caused the engine to nearly seize. I caught it almost too late and added oil to keep it from locking up but it has a rod knock now and really isn't happy.

This is my only transportation and truly something I love. It's fast, easy to ride and a lot of fun being so unique. I would love to get it back on the road!

We rescued it today and have it back home. Soon we will pull the engine and start poking around.

A used running engine is about $700 plus some additional parts to make it right.

All donations will go to saving her! This poor scooter has been from Peoria, IL to Rocky Mountain National Park, Down the backroads of Missouri and more!



Thank you!
