While I have no problem with doing the valves myself, it just takes too long on the PCX. I have a Genuine Stella that needs to be worked on on a regular basis, and it doesn't even have any valves. So I decided to get a Yamaha Zuma 125. It is very easy to do the valves on. Just like my Vino 125, except there are 4 valves instead of 2. I love tinkering with the Stella, but I'm looking for something mostly to ride here. They could make scooters with hydraulic valves if they wanted to, my guess it would cause them to lose money on service. My Goldwing (currently for sale) and Vulcan 750 have hydraulic valves, and Harleys (Harleys!!!!) have had them like forever.
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
