You can often find 2-Stroke oil in French supermarkets.
Isn't that what they're passing off as wine..? :lol:

Re: VMC 177

Are you taking the whole thing to bits? It would benefit from matching it all up.

Im sure these issues can be resolved !
Yup.. but a problem can be resolved by chucking even more money at it.

The bright side is, someone will get a barely worn GT barrel for next to nothing, because there's something wrong with it.

Win/win :lol:

Re: Adapting a 42mm Clubman exhaust.

Would reducing your exhaust port timing cut the noise enough?

Re: What is wrong with people?

All those expensive things sound lovely. But really.. are there enough people under fifty left with enough interest to spend that sort of cash on a bike they've already chucked 3/4 of a lifetime of spare cash at? Personally.. I don't follow any scooter based pages on the FB, so have no idea how busy...

Re: What is wrong with people?

There's only so many times that gearing can be explained, and where to get the best exhaust.

Re: Clubman on GT186 - Ex Box?

If you can find one, you could do worse than an RS Clubman on a GT186. Mine had 17hp and pulled 4.6 gearing. No racing snake off the line or TS1 chaser, but could sit flat out on the motorway, well above 70mph.
