T5 172 malossi carb issue

Got a T5 172 malossi engine with a 24 24g standard carb, main jet increased to suit. When engine is warm have tried adjust mixture screw but turning in and out has no effect. Idle jet is 50/100, don’t think I can get a bigger idle jet for this carb, any ideas why mixture screw has no effect. Cheers ...

Can someone tell me the difference between mk1 px headset and later px drum type headsets. Have damaged mine in an accident and need a replacement.
It’s the mk1 type I have but am unsure of the difference between it and the later type.

Handlebar muffs

Looking for a set to fit a px, I know I shouldn’t need them as we’re coming in to spring, but heading to Whitby and snow is forecast.

As it says above, where is the cheapest place you have found for sip tubeless rims, not bothered about colour.

Under panel storage

Anyone got any pics of under panel storage they have on a px. Have seen a couple for sale on eBay but are a bit expensive. Looking to store oil etc.

Or know of anyone who makes homemade ones.

Re: Sito plus or Scootopia Big Bore ?

Used to have a sito plus on my t5 until it fell apart changed to a bgm big box. Very good fit and added a couple of miles to top end.

Scootering did a big box test in 2016, Https://www.scootering.com/the-vespa-bi ... aust-test/

T5 172, bgm big box or sip road xl?

Has anyone tried any of these pipes on a t5 172, old sito+ finally gave up. Looking for a touring pipe rather than having to thrash it to get up hills etc.
Have seen the reviews in scootering and SULK for different kits but can't find anything for a 172.
Are these more of a race pipe.

Cheers Bruce
