Re: lambretta 290 rotax

I'd be interested to hear if you notice any change/reduction in vibration with that flexi joint.

Re: Using a Timing gun/light

Wow that's nice looking but expensive, but then again my 3rd 20 quid one arrived just today so I've spent half that already on cheap ones....

If so, I suppose that could mean that you'd get the same readings but not so ...
