Re: Crikey its quiet in here ..iet in here...in here... here..

It has died a death on here sadly, I pop in most days for a nosey but little changes. Check out the German Scooter Forum, that is mental. Google translate makes a game effort of translating but it`s on a different level to anything in the UK. Don`t know how many scooterists are over there but there`...

Re: Polini exhaust

I think from the factory the later electric start models had the ignition backed off a bit and set between the A and IT marks but only one way to be sure. Pop the flywheel.
My mates bog standard P200e still runs 23 degrees problem free and that`s with the crappest two stroke he can find :D

Re: Polini exhaust

I`ve been running one on mine for a while now. Changed from JL r/h and the difference was massive. The JL was dead down low but the Polini restored that and still had the same if better top end power. I`m on a P200e with BGM top end( which is just a standard 200 top end in all but name) I had a 124 ...

Re: Vespa- exhaust port only?

Have a read through these guides, very useful and you`ll find that the exhaust mod and the other mods are very useful power increases to a standard top end.

Re: Changing Rally cylinder, need to remove the engine?

That works a treat, better than removing all the cylinder studs which also works. They`re best left in and not disturbed.

Beedspeed Thin Ring Piston vs Grand Sport

Wondering if anyone has any experience of the Beedspeed Competition thin ring piston, seems great value at £48 quid as compared to the more popular proven Grand Sport version at £95 quid. Planning a mild O-tune on my P200e. https://beedspeed.com/collections/vespa-pistons/products/vespa-piston-kit-p2...

Cylinder head Compatability Polossi 210

Gathering up the parts to put together a Polossi 210. Picked up a very cheap Polini barrel/Malossi piston combo so need a head now. Really like the look of the new Polini heads and they are very cheap but I`m wondering if the piston profile of the Malossi piston is the same as the Polini? Anyone kno...

Re: BGM CARB

No need, I have the same set-up as yourself and on the open road I only use full throttle if I`m on my own, never any problems with fuel starvation.
