Re: How to change PX back wheel.

Put something under the gear selector to prop it up. You should have enough room to get the flat out and new one in this way. There can be a knack to getting an inflated wheel and tyre on.

Re: Motorcycle options ??

For some reason i cant edit my post... So I'll add it here - I know its not a "proper" bike but it would be a great solution for you. Bikes are real cheap in comparison to scooters but cost more to run in general. I've just picked up a near mint 1999 ZZR900 for less than a grand with tons of spares,...

Re: Motorcycle options ??

My recommendation would be a Honda SH300, I've been using mine for about 6 years now and its got 31k on the clocks but still runs as lovely as it did with 10k on it. Parts are relatively cheap and servicing is an absolute doddle. They'll do a true 80+MPH, cruse at 70+ forever and still return 70+MPG...

Re: Clutches for P200e

My BGM177 runs 23/68 using a DRT centre. It's a great set up but you need the HP to pull it, hence standard px125 being 21 tooth.

Re: New Low price for Exol Synthetic 2 stroke oil

No discount codes appear to work, whatever you input the website just takes you to a blank page... Although £65 for 20 litres of fully synthetic JASO FD delivered is already good value

I know it's not Lambretta but the Vespa BGM kit has a threaded hole right in the centre of the head over the combustion chamber for the sensor to fit.
I've seen temperatures up to 340°f.

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.
