NO QUESTION. TEAR DOWN.
if you plan on owning that ped for a while, get used to it. at this point you could put every single piece of a maxi or a pinto in front of me, seperated, and after a few minutes of looking, i could tell you every piece that was missing.
and once they were found, i could put it together with no instruction.
get to that point, and you'll realize anything is possible with your moped. its a good place to be.
