    This thread is for all the scoot-specific WTB/WTT stuff--scoots, scoot parts, scoot accessories, and so on. This gets us around some of the rules in FM that make it a PITA when you just need an oil drain bolt for a '96 Quin-Ji Happy Flea or want a Zuma within 20 miles of Bangor, Maine.

    • If you get what you're asking for, please edit your post to indicate that you no longer need it.
    • If you need to discuss specifics, use PM's so the thread doesn't get cluttered up, or edit your post to include more info.
    • If you've got a WTB/WTT ad in FM you can always link it here, too.
    • no CL ads, ebay links, or links to other selling sites.

    EDIT: an inmate just PM'd me (that's short for Private Message) and told me the acronyms in this post are very confusing.

    To avoid any further confusion, here's what they mean:

    WTT = want to trade
    WTB = want to buy
    FM = Flea market = the place on AdventureRider.com (commonly abbreviated here as ADV) where items are bought and sold
    PITA = Pain in the ass
    CL = CraigsList

    WTT -

    Any combination of (2) 2005 Blue Yamaha Majesty Scooters and/or a 2008 Honda Metropolitan 50cc for a motorcycle. I miss my F800GS and while I don't think I can get an F800 out of the deal, I hope I can get a street oriented dual sport that is tall and comfy and has no payment to get me through nursing school. I love to ride, but I just don't love the scooters enough to keep them. I want a motorcycle back.

    I've got a 2005 Ninja 250 in nice condition, with about 3300 miles on it. 99% of the time, I use it for my very short commute, and I'd like a scoot which will fit my Givi top case and have some under-seat storage.

    I'd value my Ninja at $1600 trade value (I keep the rack and topbox) and I'd be interested in a 50cc 2t scooter or 125-250cc 4t scooter. Cash on top of the Ninja is no problem for the right scoot.

    I'm in Westchester County, NY. Willing to travel ~2hrs for the right trade.

    I have two scoots
    2009 Piaggio Fly with 4k miles and 06 Burgman 650 w/17k miles
    looking to sell the Piaggio for 1800 and Burgman for 3500. I would trade the burgman for a vulcan classic lt and trade the piaggio for a dual sport like xr650l or similar.

    WTB sub 100cc scooter for my kids to learn on. Can offer money or possibly trade a 9mm ar15. Must be within reasonable driving distance of Memphis Tn and have a clear title. Would prefer an elite 80.

    You see a used one for sale ANYWHERE in USA PM me. Smax is my next scoot even if I have to pay MSRP for a brand new one.

    But I'd rather save $500 on taxes, etc.

    Folks, this is a Want to Buy, Want to Trade thread for scooters and scooter stuff. It is not a for sale thread.
