Re: PX Bar End Weights

Get them machined to suit, I never liked the shop bought ones to be honest.

Re: Wide tyre questions

I am using a similar set upon my scooter with the 11 rear SIP conversion rim. I have opted for the Pirelli SL26 tyres which are a lovely compound in this Asian heat. They are available in both 10 inch for the front and the 11 inch for the rear. Like you my scooter OCD don't allow for mixed rubber.

Re: Fitting a 130 rear tyre

Thanks for the reply guys - I have decided to go with the new Tubeless SIP rim as it does away with the issue of a spacer kit.

Re: Fitting a 130 rear tyre

Thanks mate did you run the tubed tyre on the two wide rims ?? Due to the pain in the butt aspect of changing the tube was you on Tubeless rims or just standard if tubeless which one ?? I have had a look at the SIP options but all seem to be discontinued now.

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

I'm also presently building a "quick" engine using a Polini pipe, cut crank, malossi 166 with the casings matched, and a 24mm carb. Was a bit miffed about gearing but finally opted for a 22/68 primary through a late model 150 gearbox. Going for nippy round town use as opposed to motorway cruising. I...

I want to fit a 130 rear tyre on my cutdown. I have seen the spacer kits sold on the SIP website, and for what's involved I'm sure I could make my own. Initially I plan to use the 2 wide halves' of a set of Vespa rims with a 130/70-10 tyre. I know that the right hand side of the swing arm of the eng...
