Re: Help Understanding stator test results.

Personally I don't have a separate earth from the engine, the frame is the earth but I do tend to daisy chain things like cdi mount, regulator rear light and always have a good one on the headlight. what you are describing is normal an AC system, (a stator with a 120W output No such thing IMO) and m...

Re: Casa Kit on 6 volts?

The original Casa kit was designed for upgrading a standard bike without changing carbs pipes and keeping a fully working 6v system shouldn’t be a problem.

Re: LED COB Headlights (spanners manual)

As no one else is around I will throw in my 2p I have looked at a lot of LED options over the years and in my case I opted for a HID conversion that I’m sure would not pass an MOT if I needed one. LED come in ranges from the old dome type that you still see in some replacment bulbs for tail lights a...

Re: Series 1 Wiring /elecrtonic ignition

Any green on the main loom is kill switch not an earth. 1 green from the stator to the CDI you only need 1 other green to the 2 nd CDI green the other end at the headset goes to the kill switch. The extra wire was used with a coil.

Re: Carb Spitback Help??? its getting to me now.

Sorry guys not spotted this old post resurrected. What did I do, get pissed off with Lambretta’s basically. You can only take so many kicks in the balls without walking away for a bit. Changed to a 26 mm Dellorto. Wanted to run through the air box but not easy on a 26. So it’s got a breath sweet. Sp...

Re: how to seperate?
