    I am training muay thai in Chiang Mai and bought a second hand scooter with a crappy ignition problem. I have to jiggle it around back and forth for a while before it finally turns on and id like to fix that. Does anyone know of a place near me that I can get this fixed?

    Its a early 90s Yamaha Belle 100cc if that helps.


    Im located at Team Quest

    Gym Address: 114/3 moo.1 T.phadeed (ป่าแดด) A.Muang, Chiangmai 50100

    Near Airport Plaza. Thank you for your time.

    Why buy a 20 yr old scooter? Just ask the Thai guys at the gym. They would know someone.

    Because i wanted a older scooter in case i wrecked or something and bought it for like 100USD which so far has been a better deal than renting. The language barrier is a bit hard, but i will ask, was just wondering if anyone had any info

    Check out Chiang Mai Bike Shop on the Mahidol Road between Airport Plaza and the old city.

    Look for the red door next to the LA bicycle shop. The owner "Pad" speaks good English and really knows his stuff. He's also really busy this time of year but hopefully can help or refer you to someone else.

    Any bike shop should be able to fix it. Just show them the problem.
