Re: SS180 DC ignition

Hi, Thanks for the reply, but that is the GS style one I think, I am looking to do a straight swap on a rusteration without hacking the wires about too much. http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o194/Shaun_079/IMG_0083_zpsyclyj1zo.jpg Mine is here next to the only Siem style switch I can find.

SS180 DC ignition

Anyone converted a 9 pole DC ignition to work as a replacement for a 10 pole DC switch??
Or know if it can be done?
I can't get a 10 pole Siem switch anywhere.

Thanks,

Re: Scootopia Vespa Big Bore vs Sito and Sip 2.0. Exhausts

I use them and have fitted a few for mates,
Sito is old news really, noisy and obsolete.

SIP is a good pipe, works well and at about £90 reasonable.
Scootopia one performs as well, sounds as good, has a better fitting kit (new main bolt etc) and comes in about £30 cheaper.

No brainer really.

Re: Is this right? Strobing

Try a different CDI, I have trouble with various ones strobing.
Swap CDI for a Ducati one I have I know works, and almost always get a flash.

Re: Indian Vijay/GP 150 carb manifold

Get a remade 150 manifold from Scootopia, fitted a few now and they clear the big engine mounts no problem,
The Indian one you have seem to only fit with the small engine mounts.
