How do I open a seat on a scooter?
To open a seat on most of our Honda scooters, insert the ignition key and turn it to the position of ‘‘OPEN” or “SEAT/FUEL,” depending on the model of motorbike. Then push the ‘‘SEAT’’ button and open the seat.
Which type of gas should I use in the motorcycle and where should I buy it?
To refuel the motorcycle, please use 91 or 95 gasoline. You can get it at every gas station and from street vendors in whiskey or vodka bottles. This is not a joke!
Where can I park?
You can park at the side of all roads except where there are red and white or yellow and white stripes. If you park incorrectly and the bike has been secured by the police with a chain lock, you must go to the nearest police station to pay a fine. If you do not know where the nearest police station is, ask someone on the street or a policeman on duty.
What if I get a flat tire?
We provide motorcycles with good tires and the right pressure, but it is your responsibility to take care of them while the bike is in your possession.
If you get a flat tire, go to the nearest mechanic to fix it. Mechanics are everywhere in Phuket and throughout Thailand. If you cannot locate the nearest repair point, ask local residents. They are very kind and will gladly direct you to the nearest mechanic. Scooter or motorcycle tire repair usually costs THB 100–300.
If you are stuck in the middle of nowhere, and you are unable to do anything with your flat tire, contact us, and we will send the necessary support or a replacement bike. Please remember that in this case you should cover repair and rescue team cost.
I can’t start the motorcycle. What should I do?
If you cannot start the motorcycle, follow these steps:
- Turn the key
- Check fuel level
- Check if the kickstand is closed and try to open and close it again
- Press both brakes firmly and try to start motorbike
- Check the battery
- The battery in a motorcycle is much smaller than the one in a car, and it is easy to drain it. Never leave the lights on without the engine running. It is your responsibility to take care of the motorcycle and battery while it is in your possession. If the cause is a discharged battery, locate the nearest mechanic and try to start the motorcycle by jump-starting it. If that doesn’t help, contact us.
