The hardened bearing cup that is inserted into the end plate has an L shaped side profile....

Re: Rear brake pedal

I always fit the pedal after fitting the legshields... Spring is a PITA... And always fit the rubber to the pedal after fitting the pedal through the legshields

Re: Throttle cable

Have you changed the grips as well?

Check the simple things... failing that a few people are selling the throttle return springs that fit within your headset

Re: Kickstart engagement.

I had a similar problem with my scooter... I lengthened the slot for the kickstart pin by a couple of mm,and that allowed it to fully engage with first gear..

Re: Which cylinder ?

Mick makes a very good point, you need to budget £1000 + to get the engine in a fit state... then consider and exhaust and labour to do the work for you.

Its not a cheap hobby these days...

You need to work out what your budget is, and then you can sort out what you can get for that

Re: Exhaust for mb rt230 reed valve

I like the standard look, and the performance of an expansion. The JL3 snail goes great with the RT kits IMHO

Re: Mito Lambretta dealer info, or Jolly feedback...

Bought a Jolly Moto snail for my TS1... firstly they sent the wrong one... I then had to post it back and then they sent me the right one... Took 3 months to sort out...

The exhaust is amazing, really light weight compared to JL's. and a great fit... Performs really well too..

Re: Dealer

Yup... ordered from them in the past.

Delivery quite slow... (always got the impression that they only ordered the parts when you ordered from them)
