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

Re: Lambretta crank induction with Malossi MHR 221

I still host photos on scoot.net/gallery/bbs and that seems to work A few years ago I started on that same build. Grafting a Malossi 210 on a LI150 case with a case inducted reed block. Just got as far as welding the block up and some rough cuts. After that it got retired to the shelf of shame and t...

Re: Quatrini 210 and chisel speed exhaust

You all were correct, I had the mounting bracket on the wrong side of the pipe bracket. It now fits a lot better but still has some bend that's going to cause some tension in the mount point. I think I can resolve this with some vice time and careful adjusting. Thank you for your help on this. http:...

Shouldn't the exhaust fit at the other side of the bracket.

I just heard back from Martin and he said the same thing. I still suspect the welded bracket has a bend in it but I'll try it out and see what happens.

Re: Quatrini 210 and chisel speed exhaust

Just to be clear, I'm not bashing Chisel Speed or Martin. The pipe looks really well made and if I'm doing it wrong I'll be the first to say so.

Quatrini 210 and chisel speed exhaust

Quatrini 210 and chisel speed exhaust, not fitting together. As you can see the pipe hits the shroud and the front hangar is no where close to the case. I've reached out to Martin at CS but have not heard back. Before I chop up this very expensive exhaust has anyone else run in to this issue with th...
