Re: trailtech TTO gauges

I got mine here http://trailtechproducts.co.uk/

You`ll need an extension piece for the temp gauge if fitting it around the headset/ legshield glovebox area.

Re: polini 210 temp

I ran a TTO temp gauge under the plug and on my o-tuned P200 a safe running max was 320F. It did go a lot higher in heavy load conditions, up to 380, but 300-320 flat out in 4th is pretty safe.

Just chaincase, could be the thimble off your clutch, in that case it might be a simple case of replacing it.

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?

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...
