Re: Casa vs. Scootopia

I've got a Casa 185 on a series 2 and it is almost impossible to kickstart it.(the kickstart lever wont move unless you put all your weight(I weigh 16 stone) on it.)The gearbox is an Italian Li 150 with 16x46 sprockets.

Re: LI125 With Scootopia 185cc kit

I had a scootopia sh2/22 and the float was catching on the inside of the float bowl.I bought an original dellorto float and it was much less than a millimeter smaller but I fitted it and the carb has worked ever since.
