Re: Atomiser/ Needle

Anyone had a look inside AF's large tailpipe bigbore exhaust? The Scootering clubman feature showed these to have very good low-mid torque and peak BHP at low RPM, which might be 'just what the doctor ordered' on a low revving big cc motor but the low RPM ceiling does make me a little nervous about ...

Re: Polini D.30 flat slide Racing 30mm carburettor

^... yes, the compact size and ability to run with air filter is where I hope this will come into its own. As I said previously, my motor is probably a couple of months off firing up but I'll have a go at dialling it in, then once I've a few miles on it take it to Readspeed and let Jerome work his m...

Re: Polini D.30 flat slide Racing 30mm carburettor

I've just bought the Polini 34mm from Scooter. It looks and feels like a good option as it appears to be very precise in manufacture. FYI my reason for deciding to buy into this carb, when I already have Dellortos is that it is a very compact body size for the venturi size. Unfortunately, I'm probab...

Re: lights go out when I put back Brake on

^... mate's Indian restored GP, with dodgy quality rear light unit, was doing exactly the same... going out completely. It had me scratching my head for a while but a better earth from bulb holder to frame sorted it immediately.

Re: lights go out when I put back Brake on

Bad earth to rear light can do this but serious dimming of headlight is often caused by too much demand on the system, especially at low RPM... as when slowing and braking for corners. If this is the case, try a 25/25w headlight and a cheapo multi cluster LED rear, the type that is a straight swap f...

Re: Avanti Upgrade

Before starting to cut or grind fins to fit the Reed manifold try to determine whether it is going to fit or not as I noted that some of the reed manifold put the carb too close to the engine mount. The manifold area is at a slightly different angle to standard.

Bent LONG tag bottom clutch steels?

Hello all, Does anyone know where I might still be able to buy longer tag bottom steel clutch plates from? Cambridge Lambretta used to sell these, with the idea being that they are long enough that, once bent upwards, locate better into the standard clutch centre, rather than ride under the radius a...
