Divide and conquer...I think we are being split up and will be removed bit by bit and I'd include our motorcycle friends in that argument. What's the reason for our high emissions? Is it the 2 stroke oil? Would it be a big deal for someone like sip, casa, tuto or one of the other big players in the ...

Just posting to give a heart felt thank you to Vfm and all the crew who put this rally on. It was great to see the spa heaving with people enjoying the bands. Sounds and Pressure room was a great treat, that man knows what he's doing! Dean Orton was very helpful with advice too and gave us time.
For the sake of a few quid I’d change the fuel hose. For sure with modern fuels they have a shelf life. If it’s gone hard in any way it’ll have to be changed anyway. Fit as short as possible. Does the scoot behave better with a full tank? Is the ht screwed firmly into the cdi and plug cap? I know yo...
On a px if the fuel line is too long it'll ride as you describe or even worse, keep knocking off but will restart easily. Wetgear or anything shoved under the seat can stop airflow to the carb and cause problems too. Has your petrol tank any rust or dirt inside? Maybe the tank and tap need to be cle...

I have between 20 and 25000 miles on a malossi t5 barrel and it's still running fine. I've changed the piston 3 times and rings maybe more though mainly because the scooter gets harder to start from 5000 miles on where the rings get worn a bit. The piston wears too and gets a very polished look in p...

I'm very impressed! A great idea. Setting the timing or carb adjustment while sitting on a chair would be alot easier that doing it kneeling/lying on the ground.
That's a nicely made engine stand! Hard to believe such a compact engine unit can transport a man and alot of luggage anywhere in the world....a very functional work of art.
My brother fitted the engine mounts as well as the shock bushes to his polini 220. Vibration increased a bit for sure but the improvement in handling was impressive. Worthwhile if you like fast cornering.

My brother has a gori race cylinder kit on his series 2 and it's been unbreakable! He's done euro's 2 up with luggage, a great mile muncher. Can't praise it enough. It's never seized on him but he did break it in properly.
Sorry Norrie, I was convinced there was a diagram of the crank and how much to remove. Also I thought there was a detailed drawing of how to modify the standard head because I used what I saw in the manual to modify my own before I bought a proper one. Current kit is 6 years old, blew up 2 before th...
