Hello, new member here~

I've owned an 09 orange Stella since last October and now that it's warmed up quite a bit have been riding it to and from base for work (I'm in the Air Force, stationed @ Davis-Monthan in Tucson). Hope to meet some other scooterists in the Tucson area.

also:

I've been having an issue with the headlight flickering off and on when I'm in 3rd gear. When this happens, if I twist the left handlebar forward slightly it tends to fix it. When I go to 4th it has no problems. Anyone else know of this problem or how it can be fixed?!

and I noticed others have the thing with the fuel gauge showing empty even when the tank is over 1/2 full. I don't even worry about it now hah

Headlight is a bad connection. I think it is typically in the grip. Very, very common0 I just had mine fixed under warranty along with the kill switch and the gas gauge.

yep it is a very common issue i had it with my 08
heck i even lost all head light

if you have warranty take her back and have them fix it
if not you will need to look at a few places
take the swicth off and mak sure the wires are tight at the back and also take the speedo off and make sure all the wores there are good and tight and that you have plenty of slack in the shift tube area

Hello Roaldiswack,

Yep I had all the problems the light thing
took about 10 minuts to fix, if your handy
once you have a look under the cover you'll
see the wires that need to be rescrewed down.

As for the fuel gage I ignore it every 80 mile I top off.

Cheers
