Re: Re registration to a 125

Any "reputable" engineer would only write a report for you if they were absolutely sure it was a 125 otherwise it could be classed as fraudulent. Insurance companies must be made aware of ANY changes to the CC of a vehicle otherwise they will void the insurance in the event of a claim. So you’re sa...

Re: Sip Speedo

I have a v1 in my dl and a v2 in my series 2. Work great and more accurate than any stock speedo. One bad thing to say about them; they need a SOLID power source or they will turn off, flicker, go dim and reset the clock on you. I really wish they would convert or allow the option for the CHT in to ...

Re: LTH / MMV LI centre clutch nipple

I might have one. The problem is I won't be able to look for it for a couple of days and I'm in the US.

If I do have it I don't mind shipping it. Just cover postage and it's yours. Message me your email and I'll get you a photo when I dig it out.

Re: Clutch & Gear issues

Start off with a fresh oil change (90wt ND for wet clutch, every scooter shop sells it). It sounds like once the motor gets hot the clutch starts to bind up. Could be due to an oil issue or something mechanical. You won't for sure know until you get in there. Gear jumping could be a shimming issue, ...

Re: What sparkplug do you use with your GT kit?

Always run B8 or B9. Plugs are cheap, top ends are not.

Re: Joint

Ive never had one break. Is everything else free and easy to tirn. Same here. Many carb set ups with various extreme angles, never had one break. I have some original italian ones still in use on my dl with a phbh carb. Is there something going on with the pins you’re using? Maybe they are too big ...

Re: AF 5 Speed Gearbox

Haven't seen the AF one yet but have installed a few 5 speeds (Cyclone and MBD). No news is good news, right?

Over shifting is always a problem with 5's but you get use to it pretty quick.

Re: ignition switch/headlights

If that's the only thing going on then yes. New switches are cheap and actually pretty reliable now. Personally I have the Scootopia ones on all my scoots and have had no issues.

Re: Lambretta crank induction with Malossi MHR 221

Ok, so it was all going to plan.....but as we say "if it's all going to plan you've got the wrong plans" :? Sure enough i offered the engine into the series 2 frame....(i'd cut the loop away with plans for a removable back section), but...... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/46964314035_bae14c13...
