Re: VESPA PX Rattling noise from the clutch

For sure Wink. Scoots used around town with plenty of stop start riding are the problem. Both the ones i repaired were from Madrid and city bikes.

Re: PX Kickstarts

Some Spanish PX Kickstarts are steel so a bit better.

Re: VESPA PX Rattling noise from the clutch

Hi Wink.
Run the motor again in and standing beside the scoot pull the clutch and look at the flywheel.The noise is the flywheel hitting the cover.
Just done a pair of PX200E discs 2001 & 2003.
Both done 33000kms 22000 miles ish.
New set of main bearings and seals.Quiet again.
