Re: Scomadi fork issue series 3

The outboard shock set up is a non-standard, aftermarket, so called improvement - personally I wouldn't assume they'd fit and if you had them sat there then why on earth didn't you fit them during the dry build? Puzzled as to why you'd buy a 2nd set of forks from the same place after no being happy ...

Re: SS240

So.. I have bought the casa case and other trinkets with a 62x110 crank. Is the carb on the left hand side? buying a new tank will push the price a little high for a non reed kit (imo) Confused as to why you would spend big dollar on a Casa case, crank etc and 1. Be undecided as to which kit to use...

Re: Newcasle Under Lyme Scooter repair

Norman & Birch in Hanley (Stoke-on-Trent) are probably worth a shout.
They've been around forever and have always worked with scooters.

Re: Your First scooter /first car ?

My 1st car was a 2 door Mk 2 Escort 1.1 popular in Daytona yellow. I de-chromed it, stuck on short bumpers and stripes on the bonnet to make it look more sporty :oops: 1st scooter was RVL753W a P125X which I bought from my Uncle. 1st time I'd ridden a scooter was when I went to collect it from his h...

Which 50?

ok, so my 16 year old son has finally realised how much fun and freedom he could have with a 50 but which are the ones to go for?
I'm thinking SR50, Runner, Typhoon or maybe ET2.

What do you all reckon, obviously I'm thinking of de-restricting and low cost kit options .......

Thanks

Re: GP 150 to suit ts185 + std crank.

You'll need to take the bore out to 64mm for the Suzuki TS185 piston I'm not sure if a 150 cylinder will go that far - check the MB Tech site as I'm sure that'll tell you. You'll either need to have the barrel shortened (topped & tailed) if using the standard crank and the standard 107 rod or you co...
