Fitting spring on older Vespa forks???

How the hell do you fit the spring on older Vespa forks with the damper and spring. I managed to get it out somehow but haven't got a clue how to refit the top end with the spirally bit and thread on (that sits in the spring) into the hole. Just can't seem to compress the spring enough to get the th...

To rub down or not????

Just sprayed a couple of bits with a rattle can and to be honest I'm quite pleased with the result. It's quite a shiny finish but the only problem is there are a few "blemishes" possibly where a bit of dust has been sprayed over etc. My dilemma is do I leave it and not stand the chance of ballsing i...

Cleaning small sieze marks barrel and piston?

Just stripped the top end on my missus GP and it looks like it might have had a small nip up in the past, nothing too drastic. What's the best way to clean up the sides of the piston and few small marks in the barrel?

Re: Fitting New Chain......Help!

Got the scooter up and running after fitting new clutch plates, spring, front sprocket and chain. I've noticed there's a bit of a rattle when the scooters running and it sound's like it's coming from the chaincase. I've fitted a nylon top slipper and lower chain guide and adjusted the chain to have ...

Re: Fitting New Chain......Help!

Doh!! That'll teach me to presume. After wresting for 2 to 3 hours with 3 different rear sprockets, chains etc I had the bright idea of counting the front sprocket which I thought was 18 but low and behold it was a 19! Problem now solved and 18 tooth fitted, everything fits like a glove now. Thanks ...

Re: Fitting New Chain......Help!

Sorry, all standard GP200 gearbox with 18/47 sprockets. I stripped it down as I had some kickstart issues but everything else was all ok before. When I stripped it I decided to renew clutch, springs, bearings etc and noticed the chain was quite loose even though the slipper was fully adjusted so wen...
