Re: which are the strongest lambretta clutch springs

Happens so often that I can see it being an issue with your beast of a motor.

This feel exactly like clutch slip, becoming an issue when working under load. Back off and the motor gets some traction back. Open the throttle and it starts to slip again.

Re: which are the strongest lambretta clutch springs

Front sprocket spin under load? Surprising how many people with powerful motors mistake this for clutch slip. Soft aftermarket sprocket, old worn original sprockets or ramp, old tiered spring, S1 spring fitted by mistake can all be a cause. Decent new hardened sprockets, new S3/GP spring and/or shor...

Re: LT coils

Ah, that changes everything!

Anthony Tambs recently put up some info about Varitronic stator repairs on Facebook (or other ), however, I would not look for that, rather, get in touch with Anthony and ask him directly.

^... In their defence, whilst the consensus it that having the ring ends exposed by a port, this was an issue that used to pop up every now and again in the days of the WCLW in USA doing the Humiliator and Annihilator TS1 conversions that ran an upgraded piston.

Re: gear help: GT 200 on Jet200

I put my original front sprocket back on, so now stock SX200 gearing, and yes it pulled much better. When I tried to do a top speed test I kept getting stuck in traffic so gave up trying to go faster than 110 kmph, It will have to wait until spring now (I'm in Canada). As an experiment, I also swit...
