Re: Lambretta GT 186

"I know folk who double them up!" Why do people do that? Doubling the thickness will severely limit the amount the reeds open not to mention changing the frequency of them. I check and change mine as part of a service before putting my scoot back on the road at the start of the year. You'll soon kno...

Re: Wots this for

I found exactly the same when I changed the rings on my GT kit.

Re: Gt186 carb and exhaust

Well you have two examples here (mine and scootering) that give you a variance of 1.4hp over two different dynos.
It's worth noting also that the "scootering" featured 186 had an exhaust port mod.

Re: Gt186 carb and exhaust

Gt186 with 30mm PHBH open mouthed, Varitronic (early version), PM 25EV pipe.
Recently dynoed at PM Tuning giving 19.3 @ 7500, torque was 13.3.
I know Rich doesn't like Varitronic but I've had no issues.
