Re: Series 2 hard to kick over

It's not just about compression ratio. As already pointed out, it's the lever, or rather the ratio of engine revolutions versus distance of lever travel. I've done a couple of builds like this recently and used a bigger front sprocket to resolve it. On LI150 with scootopia kits, a 16 tooth sprocket ...

Re: Wasted Tuning?

Wasted Tuning? At the moment, its an intertesting observation but until a reason is established and proven I'd say its too soon to say! In the video mr clare alludes to knowing, something about 1000% of a ratio. But it seems DT wants to keep his hard-earned tuning secrets to himself. Fair play to h...

Re: Side panel handle nylon washers

Scooter restorations definitely sells. If I were a betting man I'd bet £1 that scootopia do too. Scootopia don’t seem to sell them separate from the handles.
