Re: GT186 manifold - carb fouling engine mount

I love the TM24, as it is such a responsive little carb, and wanted it on the GT186. I have another GT186 with 115 conrod and 8mm packer. Does anyone think this would allow it to clear the mount?

8-) Personally, I have never seen or even heard of these before. Nice find. I’d recommend that you contact the Vintage Motor Scooter Club. They may well be able to help, or possibly point you in the direction of someone in Austria or Germany who can.

Good luck with it 👍

Re: Dark Visors - Beware

To be fair, I got caught out back in 2010 having to ride back from Portsmouth to Merseyside with one at night. I had to ride visor up the whole way as I literally couldn’t see in the half light or at night. As you can’t always legislate when you’ll be forced to ride at night, because of breakdowns s...

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.
