Re: Eric Cope smashes 127mph at Elvington on full-bodied Taylor Tuned Lambretta 250cc

Found it, watched it, learnt that you have a blue lamp... but a really good and important info set that anyone new to building engines should watch and try to understand. You used one word a number of times that says it all, "balance". Yes, you're looking at a number of different elements but the im...

^... always nice to keep an eye / ear open for any new snippet that I might pick up. Every day is a school day!

What about 2 Stroke oil? Is it recommended to carry it all from home or is it plentiful in France, and Italy? I imagine it's OK in Italy, but what about France?
You can often find 2-Stroke oil in French supermarkets.

Re: Daily touring mileage

2 top Lambretta days for me have been Avignon to Orleans (c.a. 430 miles) and Caen to Langenthal (c.a. 500 miles). Avignon done on my Avanti TT3 but with a Suzuki 190 and a ported iron 175! Langenthal done on my own, riding a home tuned iron 225. Both were back and ass breaking! A good day mileage f...

Re: Wasted Tuning?

I also wonder what the influence of primary compression ratios is on the performance results for any given motor, i.e. enlarging transfer feeds in casing and through transfer passage will reduce primary compression, which in itself may be of benefit or detrimental to performance. Those motors fitted...

Re: Effect of humidity and air temperature on carb performance

I was hoping that the G needle would have arrived before the weekend, however, the H needles + 8-hole atomiser have certainly helped. Sorry that I've not got more to report at the moment but the bike is certainly becoming more rideable.

Cheers for now.
