Re: Scooter not picking up properly ........... HELP!

I’d be wary of running a 35, as has been said by others. Be careful;-)

If I were you I'd go back to using a 40 slide in the carb.
How come?
Where is “oil” leak from?

You may be richening up your air mix, by going to that size of slide, to mask an air leak.

I have a scribbled note from a few years back that this Suzuki piston will work. I can’t recall who told me though!

I suspect I was told this in the context of the skirt needing cutting and the head reproducing though.

Re: whats the verdict on 24mm PWK carbs ?

Just to put up an alternative view, I wasted months and months of my life about 10 years ago trying to set up copy Keihins albeit largely on a Mugello which may have been part of the issue. Anyway, I vowed never again after that. They are especially temperamental regards float height and their float...

Re: Like Riding a Wheel Barrow.

Yes, you'd think frame or forks might be bent. That would explain it perhaps. But, to the best of my knowledge both have been jigged. Fork links might be worth a look perhaps. That was something I hadn't thought of, and the front end is a story in itself. Sometimes it doesn't feel like it wants to ...

Re: MB adjustable Kickstart

The MB Lever is very sturdy and functional. It gave me a much longer kick. Once set with a touch of loctite, the adjustable step hasn’t moved.

Re: Disc brake locating stud, fine thread - where to buy?

As an aside, every toolkit should include a Pitch Gauge. Cheap and a very easy way to find out what pitch you are dealing with.

Re: LCGB AGM ref BLOA

When you say you have heard a transcript, do you mean you have heard a recording, or have you read a transcript? If it was a transcript, was it the one in JetSet?

The reason I ask? Well I never kept any notes of the AGM but I suspect you have used some poetic licence here in your comments.

Re: Having a pub "discussion" about top speed

A few years back in Scootering, Sticky rode a standard electronic GP200 against Al Terry on a standard Rally 200. If I recall correctly, the Rally 200 edged it, speed wise, maybe even acceleration wise.
