Re: BGM vs Avanti ex-box

Sorry didn’t realise the Ex box wasn’t in the Scootering article, Seen the you tubes but they only do a touchy feel compare. My question really is the pipe a bit more low down tourqey to pull the gearing better? The scooter will do 70gps now and that’s enough for me but wouldn’t want to lose the top...

BGM vs Avanti ex-box

Anyone any experience of how the Ex-box performs with a Mugello 186 compared to a BGM clubman? I know there was an article in scootering a couple of years ago but I can’t find it. I’m bored during this lockdown s**t and wondered if it was worth trying the Ex-box. I’m running an Li 150 box with 16 fr...

Re: SH1/20 carb question

SH1/20 carb question

Morning chaps,

Cheers steve

Re: Tyre Sealant

I use goop in tubes and it does work. Rear puncture went down slowly, easy stop.

Timing light

I’m missing something, Why won’t my timing light strobe my new engine? Thought the light was bust so bought a new one. Doesn’t work either. Battery is ok and charged. Don’t understand it, I’ve used this test bed, CDI and HT before and it’s sound. Engine runs great but can’t get the strobe to work. C...

Can’t begin to imagine what the ride was like. That fella must have balls of steel.

Big respect to all involved. Awesome results
