Actually its crazy I know but it would be cheaper to buy another 24mm PWK carb and get a rubber coupling with it for £15.00
I've found that out. Only because the carb is so cheap I guess. There's a hydralic hose supplier neaby and I've planned to find the right size hose and use that.

Really helped me out with an ignition coil earlier this year. He took it home and I picked it up from there. Nice friendly guy too. Torbay Lambretta deserve to do well.

Re: Headsets

I used to wince when I used to read in JetSet about 'another smashed SX headset' in some random race somewhere. They're preserving scooters on one hand, then racing them and smashing them on the other! Any way, thanks for your replies. Looks like it's an Italian headset. Bizarrely, it was on an '87 ...

Headsets

After a one sided argument with a wet drain cover I've smashed my GP headset (including rim, glass, speedo - the whole shebang). Swallowing the grief of seeing my vintage 80s engraved polished headset in pieces, I need another. It was an Italian one - can I fit an LI or SX one or does it have to be ...

I used to work with a woman that did hill climbs. She rode something massive that was nitro enhanced, and loved it. I think there are plenty around - try these people https://www.hillclimbandsprint.co.uk/calendar-all.asp

Re: whats the verdict on 24mm PWK carbs ?

I'm running one on my Lambretta chop at the moment. It was a vast improvement over the Indian Jetex that was on it before, not that that says very much. For the throttle cable I used a gear cable from wilko with the nipple at the carb end and a solderless nipple at the throttle. It's a chop so I bou...

Re: GP vibration.

Sounds like it's time to see how reputable the dealer is. If you only bought it June take it back and see what they say.
