Fast Frog

I'm sure the French chap who does some excellent tuning is on this forum. He used to be known as Fast Frog on the old Squaretails forum. I've no idea of his name on here. Could do with contacting him if possible. Thanks in advance.

Re: BGM 177 kit - really plug n play?

Better off with the aluminium Pinasco 177 for what you're after. Upgrade the carburettor to a 24-24 si and you will have a good touring set up.

Little Charmer

I've just bought this Vespa Mk 1 P125X (T5 172) back after selling it almost 3 years ago. Hardly done any mileage in between and is as immaculate as ever. To say i'm over the moon is an understatement. . http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a262/jason69vespa/Little%20Charmer%202_zpsnvrahndy.jpg http://...

Re: Si carb idle jet help

They were available from Beedspeed. I bought one from them last year. Don't know if they still have them now.

Re: T5 172, bgm big box or sip road xl?

A mate of mine put one on his T5. Said it was ok but wouldn't let the engine rev out. He's gone back to a JL.

Re: Erratic tickover T5

Drop the gearbox oil and see if it smells of petrol. Main seal gone?

Re: Increase carb size on 177 kit

Swapping to the P2 carb is a good modification.
The standard jetting won't be far off.
I ran the same kit with P2 carb and covered thousands of trouble free miles.

Re: No Modern Scoots on this Rally

As opposed to having lots of camper vans there ?
Any form of two wheels is welcome in my book.

Ride outs???? How embarrassing. :lol:
