Re: Legshield spare carrier

Thanks. It's a VBB2T 'curry burner.' I'd just about come to the conclusion I'd buy the tool for the nutserts, but I guess just tightening bolts into them would pull them in... Actually, I think I have a similar tool for plasterboard inserts, maybe that would work!

Legshield spare carrier

Hi

I just bought a spare wheel carrier (the type that bolts to the spine and carries the spare flat against the legshields) and it needs two mounting points on the spine.

I assume I need some threaded inserts - if anyone has fitted one of these, what did you use?

Thx

Fantastic stuff. I'd love to do something like this but like most people I only dream about it.

I think there's an element of that! Anyone who can't sort this probably shouldn't have a scooter.

Re: Revs up when pulling the choke

There's probably air getting in if it does that when it's warm.

Make sure carb is seated correctly on the manifold and carb top is sealing on the body (there should be an 'o' ring in the groove in the carb top).

Re: Sportique

That's great. I must admit I was doubtful when I saw the first pics with the Lammy forks, but the front end looks great. I can't believe how neat the mudguard looks.
