Re: vespa px 180 gearing solutions....

I run a BGM 177 on LML reed cases, nothing special in terms of tuning with. BGM Touring exhaust and it runs 23/68 without issue. Loads of torque and smooth crusing.

Re: LML125 gear ratios

I can't tell you what 4th gear an LML has in but I suggest it's no different than a PX. I can say from experience that I run a BGM 177 on LML 150 reed cases with a DRT23 Cosa and it pulls lovely, great mile munch but a 22 would be better for town or shorter trips.

Hi
My p200 was doing the exact same thing. Turned to be the fly wheel side bearing seal was leaking letting air in.
Wow! How did you manage to suss that out? Would probably be one of the last places I'd consider checking!
It was the last place I checked :oops:

Re: P200e running issues when engine hot!

Thanks for reply Shaun. Air leak is on my 'suspect' list, but not sure why symptoms would only manifest themselves when engine is hot! Guess I am going to have to just check each possible component to eliminate! Read on various threads that CDI may be a culprit, so may buy a cheapo replacement just...

Re: P200e running issues when engine hot!

Initial thought would be that you have an air leak somewhere, however check that the throttle cable, slide is returning fully first as this would also cause your increase in revs. If all well, if start with the easy checks, carb and box gaskets, cylinder head and flywheel side seal. Don't panic yet ...

Re: Pros and cons of a 22 tooth primary on a kitted P125?

I run a 22 on a standard 150 without issue, still pulls well up hills and into headwinds. Sito+ exhaust so lower torque curve helps.
Also run a BGM 177 with 23\68 gearing which is a fantastic cruiser without loosing too much low to mid range.
Hope it helos
