Re: Clutch Enhancement?

The system in the top picture was my idea. I was sick of not being able to get in easily to the trunnion.

Not me Wrecklessrobbie! Just pictures I have collected.
At least one of them was done through a guy Disco Dave/David Hampson who does a lot of the rallies selling bits and pieces... long range tanks for one. Another was done by a guy I know on facebook - search for "J&G 2% Vespa Tuning".

Re: odd P2 clutch problem
