Great piece of kit and worth every penny. On my gt I fitted the sensor under the head bolt furthest from the fan. I stuck the guage on the bridge piece. With a head torch wrapped around the toolbox door and pointing at the guage I can see temp readings at night. On my T5 I fitted a guage on the tool...
I agree with Meds1. Heat cycles, gear changes to avoid labouring the engine and a retorque. I've always thought that cast barrels had microscopic hairs of metal in the bore from machining and the break in process was to wear these away to ensure a good ring/barrel seal. My GT kit definately ran hott...
HxPaul, you speak the truth! Gobus and city link are 2 companies that run busses on the motorway from our town to Dublin. They hold 100kmh up hill down dale headwind or not. It’s taken us a lifetime to outrun those guys! 100kmh is hard to achieve.
I agree with Hotdog, heidenau tyres work great for me. On my second set of mitas on the lambretta. Can't fault them. Better grip in the wet than I was expecting. S83's and S1's have too poor a speed rating for any non standard scooter in my opinion.
The T5 fourth is the same as a px125 one I think. Using a clutch with more teeth is the easiest way to upgear your engine. I think a px125 has a 20 tooth clutch. A 21 tooth will give a 5% upgear. A 22 tooth clutch will fit but your scooter might not be powerful enough with only a pm exhaust and no o...
I agree with Holty. 1.2 would be a good target. I always thought that a large squish would give a cooler running engine but that wasn't the case with my bro's polini. We were shocked at how much cooler a lower squish runs.
Small wheels and quick steering geometry make scooters very agile in town but on the open road handling gets interesting to say the least! Even after years of scooter riding it still takes me time to adjust after riding a motorcycle. I hope you stick with it!
