Re: Malossi 221 MHR exhaust

Cheers Cgt75b It was very quick Patrick & good fun (in small doses)... power delivery isn’t subtle with the MHR kits and this one came on pipe with a proper ‘kick up the arse’...

Re: Crank won’t turn when flywheel nut is tightened.

It’s a Pinasco Flytech flywheel - and after having had another look at it tonight, the problem is definitely with the new flywheel. I’ve tried a standard Piaggio stator & flywheel on tonight & that was fine, no binding & engine turns free - so no issue with the crank - thank god. When I’ve had a bet...
