Re: Retard, advance, retard add-on ignition profile?

Looking back I got mine via Amazon in September 2016, but I've not seen them on sale since, but sounds like I missed some. I've submitted a query via their web page asking if they're planning on making more.

Re: Retard, advance, retard add-on ignition profile?

The kheper device also does this but they don't seem to be making them anymore. You could try contacting them via the Kheper web page & see if they have plans but I haven't seen any on sale for around 18 months.

Re: thumb choke route

On my S2 I opened up the head bolt hole and fed it through there.

Re: Balancing a lambretta crank/top end??

Is there such a thing as 'harmonics' (if that's the right word?). For example, I get vibration at something like 3,500rpm that clears by 4,000 rpm and I'm wondering if that is just the combining effect of the frequencies during those engine speeds. Outside of those figures the engine is very smooth....

Symbols On Casings

Was talking last night about letters & numbers printed on engine cases & how is was perhaps to identify a particular worker who performed the job etc. Anyone else heard anything? See below on a late 1961 S2 cases; a '3' on the chaincase, a 'Y' on the suspension pivot, and perhaps the remains of a 'D...

Re: Handling Series 1&2

I think they handle great. Two things that made massive improvements for me:
1. Changing old standard springs to progressive
2. Ditching the single saddle for a TSR seat, you can actually feel your suspension move rather than the seat bouncing up & down!

Re: Tubeless Puncture Repair

I spoke to a regular biker here at work, asking him what happens in his world and he simply showed me his RAC card. A can of tyre fix is probably another decent get-you-home option, I think it's quite common now for cars to be supplied with that instead of a spare wheel. I hadn't considered a valve ...

Tubeless Puncture Repair

Does anyone have any advice or experience with puncture repair on tubeless wheels, especially how it went at the side of the road? I see SCK advertise a repair kit, are they worth it? http://www.scooter-center.com/en/product/BGM8803/Tyre+repair+set+UNIVERSAL+for+tubeless+tyres?meta=BGM8803*scd_ALL_e...

Re: External Pick Up

You're just moving the trigger to the outside of the flywheel, replacing the red lead on your CDI, or use a switch so you can select which red-wire input is active on the CDI (maybe for different timing options or fall-back).
