Re: vespa engine temp s.i.p wots normal???

You say pinasco 215 with 60mm crank. You did use a packing plate didn't you? I say this because with the pinasco a lot of people thought you could get away with not using a packer on a 60mm crank, however if you use without a packer it will make the compression too high. Do you have a fast flow tap...

Re: smallframe performance, whats best???mallossi???

As for carb you could use 19/19 or go for a deli 25mm again both will work well. what primmaries are you running? As for a pipe depends on your budget...

Re: smallie 12v conversion ,,,,whats best?

if you can get hold of one then any non battery pk electronic would fit, you would be better off with the large taper pkxl crank, or even the ets one, steer clear of beedies conversion as the parts are of wanky quality, only use genuine ducati stuff, the other alternative and this is the route id g...
