Re: New Layshafts?

Contact a few dealers that have original uaed good condition innocenti engine parts and seek an original layshaft.
That is what I've done recently and obtained a near perfect original layshaft. Less that the cost that you've included in your message.

Re: looking for original image of this photo

You'll have to seek out who owns the image (the person taking the photo or designing the picture/image) and seek their permission to copy it for your own purposes. (Usually not to make a personal financial income from reproducing it as your own). Otherwise you could find yourself on the wrong side o...

Re: ACID DIPPED/VAPOUR BLASTED CASINGS

I've had casings dipped and brought up to looking like new from Trevor at Midas Touch.

Never one to seek publicity about his business, just gets on with the job.

Re: SIP Speedo, Resistor cap and plug necessary?

Hi, yes you'll need a resistor plug for an SIP speedo to work correctly. These have an 'R' in the plug code. You don't say what model of scooter you're fitting it to but for example with a Lambretta you'll would need to use such as a NGK BR9ES or a Champion RN3R. A suitable plug cap for any models i...

Re: Thumbs up....

Sounds like a way of improving page hits and apparent responses to appease those financially backing this forum, but that might simply be the cynic in me?

Whatever might be next, swipe right or left if you like a feature scooter.... ??!!

Re: 4 or 5 Speed Feedback So Far?

Yep, I personally recommend a Cyclone 5 Speed following my use over the last 3 years, and upwards of 6-7,000 miles.

When I riding my other scooters that don't have a 5 speed box I'm always looking to change up from 4th.

Bought another Cyclone to fit to my next engine, impressed with them that much.

Re: Scooter inner wire cables

Got to ask the question are these 5 quid "super" cables actually better than a decent "standard" cable......like we've been using for years. In all honesty if installed and set up right standard cables have given me good service, in about 25 years of riding vespa and lambretta (lambrettas with cent...
