Re: Re:

Believe you me, if there were a suitable elbow/bellows 'off the shelf' for even a moderately sized carburettor.... such as 30 mm, I would have bought one. Are the BGM 'Armadillo' air hoses not 'off the shelf'? I've been running one on a Mikuni flat slide with a wide neck airbox for close to 2 years...

Re: RS Clubman 42mm

I won a 42mm RS Clubman on eBay 2 years ago. It was in really good condition and I paid £138 for it. There was several other bidders and it was listed correctly.

Re: lambretta paint jobs

UK paint prices are cheap! Here in the US, a reasonable paint job in factory colors, from someone who regularly paints Lambrettas, will set you back ~$2,500 and a concourse job $3,500 - $4,000.

Re: Casa vs. Scootopia

@Vegansydney Where is this 200cc small block kit you are referring to? It was posted on Casa Lambretta's social media channels late last month . According to Vittorio, it's based on the Casa 185, but uses a 66.4mm piston, has an enlarged inlet face (so non-OEM manifolds can be used) and a fifth por...

Re: Casa vs. Scootopia

The squish on my Scootopia kit is 1.5mm which they told me was about right. Did you also measure the compression ratio when you built it? If so, what did you find? It appears all three kits (Casa v1, v2, and Scootopia) have the same compression ratio. If anyone knows any different, I'd be very inte...

Re: Casa vs. Scootopia

Some quick measurements by a Casa dealer here in the US makes me believe that the compression ratio of the current version (2015+) of the Casa 185 head remains the same as the earlier (pre-2015) version: a geometric compression of 10.8:1 with a 1.1mm squish clearance. A UK based dealer has also told...

Re: PWK jetting, running through airbox

A very informative post and the most interesting thing I've read on here recently. Thanks for sharing! I'm also running a couple of TS185 conversions though the air box with BGM filters and BGM 'armadillo' air hoses, albeit on Mikuni TM24s. I also found most of the widely available knowledge on the ...

Casa vs. Scootopia

Casa 185 v2 vs. Scootopia 185 - Can anyone that has built either of these (or both!) please tell me what the compression ratios are? The Casa 185 v1 (pre-2015) has a geometric compression of 10.8:1 with a 1.1mm squish clearance. The volume of the combustion chamber with the piston at TDC is 19ml and...

AC or DC?
Not entirely sure to be honest. :oops:
Is it battery operated (DC) or not (AC)?

Re: LI125 With Scootopia 185cc kit

I've found that its best to run a drill bit through the swing arm of Scootopia floats before fitting. This ensures it oscillates on the pin without any drag.
