Clutch springs

Hi, I've just put together a new clutch for my malossi 210 with some lovely parts from sip. It's a 7 spring CNC basket with a reinforced circlip, honda plates and grooved centre bush. I've used sip 'sport' springs which are marked 'L' in the description. I do find them a bit excessive in lever pull ...

Re: Lambretta Rear Brake Adjuster

I've used a threaded cable from the rear brake of a piaggio et2 for this if it helps anyone. I've a strong feeling all those 50cc piaggio autos use the same one.
Cheap as chips.
Cut it to size obviously

Re: Pwk ballpark jetting?

Both useful, particularly the modernvespa site. A few threads on there detailing the tribulations of others trying to use the same carb. Unfortunately I'm still not managing to get any closer. I've been through all the jets i have and still too rich. I have gone down to a 32 pilot and a 102 main whi...

Re: Beedspeed

Strangely i find the sip website to be a great site to use! And in fact in my opinion sip in general are superior in many ways. But there again im a vespa man and have had lots of practice using the site. I can understand ifyou're lambretta orientated then it's not very well stocked but there are pl...

Re: Pwk ballpark jetting?

So I've had no luck with this still, but have run out of decent plugs for now. Leaned off the needle to the top clip, and changed the pilot to 35 (smallest i have) I took the phbh off my 210 and my plug out of that and it seemed to run fine with that although it seems to run fine with the pwk till t...

Re: Pwk ballpark jetting?

Hi, Thanks for the reply, The needle clip is at the rich/ pointy end. I can change this tonight, I'll go right to the leanest setting to see if this helps. I've changed numerous stators, flywheels, cdi's and plug caps and leads off mine and mates bikes to no avail, so can pretty much rule out an ign...

Re: Pwk ballpark jetting?

After a bit more dicking around today it seems that the plug is fouling meaning it won't start. Clean it up and it starts first kick, but soon fouls again. Not the whiskering I'm used to but fouling around the ceramic inner part causing small orange sparks around the inner part of the plug. Change t...

Pwk ballpark jetting?

Hi, Built a motor with a mate recently, looking for a pointer on jetting. Mainly as it's a b@5t@rd to start. Runs ok when going although I've only revved it up and had it ticking over for about half an hour. Revved up fine, tickover is lumpy but it's got a 1kg flywheel. Starting its easy when warm b...
