Frame replacement

I've got a scoot with a damaged frame. If I was to replace it with another frame, is it possible to send the v5 to the dvla with the new frame number or will I have to register the scoot under the new frame number as a new scooter?

Re: Tubeless rim beginners questions

Most tyre fitters in my experience will only fit new tyres to rims. Thanks. I did wonder whether that would be an issue as well. I contacted AF and they have advised against fitting the 3.00 x 10 tyres so I think I'll purchase a newy and continue with Sl26's on the front for now, or use them on my ...

Re: Tubeless rim beginners questions

I'd have thought shot was a bit rough as a blasting media, prob better with something softer. The alloy marks very easily. Powder coat would be possible I guess but again you want to watch the tolerances and not lay it on too thick. Also be aware that the hole the air goes through to the valve can ...

Re: Which slide is the richest?

Thanks all. So looks like I have the wrong slide in as nothing on the Cam Lam list has 5014-1, so I'll have a look for one of the ones listed but it probably wont make much of difference richness wise but you never know. (mine is a Lui 50 running a Centro barrel bored out to 125 with an SH1/20 so ca...

Re: Which slide is the richest?

Thanks , so is there is a difference between a 5914/1 and a 7895/1 then in terms of richness?

I have a 5014-1 fitted at the moment so I want to know if changing to one of the slides above will make a difference?
