Re: On a mission to combat noise

When off the stand, does it have the rubber bump stop on the small spigot to prevent it from rattling against the underside of the runner board? Do you have the strengthening plates between the V of the centre stand brace? Is the stand spring tensioned correctly or has it stretched. Do you have the ...

Re: CHT Meter

Well, got the gauge but the lead is only about 1 metre long and far to short to reach from the headset to the cylinder head. Do they do extensions or longer leads??

Re: how many amps will the horn button support?

I've done this on my scoot and got a DC horn off Corrado. Very loud and no issues with the existing wiring.

CHT Meter

Thinking of getting a Trail Tech CHT meter. Is it the 14mm. sensor ring size I need for a Lammy spark plug ? And is anyone running one on an Avanti kit? If so, how did you fit the sensor and where and did you gave to cut any cooling fins? Any photos would be very helpful.

Try Splat Shop. Their jets are the proper ones.

No, no, Nev. Well, not for a few years yet. Just thinking ahead to when I'm too old to kick the bugger over. :)

Modern retro scooters are what they are. I think there is a lot to be said for them, if you like that sort of thing. They do what they say on the tin. Funnily enough I was looking at one of those Django things tonight. It's a bit of a lump.
What do you mean, Nev? Can you elaborate a bit more.

You missed something off the end of the topic title. Modern retro scooters.....,are wank
Easy to say that, but what do you think Lambrettas would be like now if they were still in business?? That Django is quite nice considering it bows to the classic lines but with all the modern accoutrements.

Modern Retro Scooters

Which of the new modern scooters most closely resembles an original 50/60's scooter? Saw one the other day done in red and white which looked very retro but it was being ridden so couldn't get a close up. I already know about the Dutch (sic) retro Lambretta thing which has been on here :shock: :roll:
