Re: Piaggio paint in a can

None of the Piaggio paints ever matched the white PX125 that I tried to touch up in the first couple of years of owning it from new. When Vespa/Piaggio couldn't even supply the correct colour (correct name and codes but different from can to can!) for a current model , what chance do others have?!

Re: Why is my S3 such a nightmare to start?

What plug have you got fitted? Try an NGK B7ES and close the plug gap slightly and see if this helps. You shouldn't need to do this if all is well but it might make your starting a little easier. Sadly, this could be the result of about 101 things that could be wrong with it. You need to systematica...

Re: PHBH QUESTION

Yes... but there are some slightly different versions of these carbs; 2-srtoke, 4-stroke, different fuel bowls, mouth intended for hose or threaded for bellmouth, etc. The size of the venturi (26, 28 or 30mm) will not affect interchangeability and things can be swapped on a like for like basis.

Re: tickover on 28mm delly

This is a very common problem and I've got it on my most recently bought PHBH. I did find that going for a weaker slide allowed for better adjustment though.

Re: VHSH rubber mount

Same old problem of location ribs being in different positions. The PHBH and VHSH have this rib grooves set at different depths, which are different again to the MK2 26mm Amal depth, with Malossi rubbers having a different depth to Dellorto rubbers (hard to get) and many of the aftermarket rubbers b...

Re: Are These Any Use?

Weld 2 lengths of box section onto the rims, to form a triangle and you'll have a very handy rear hub holder/stand when you want to undo or torque up the hub.

I did this and then noticed that they were original Innocenti rims!

Re: Casa 185 question

Much like the jig that Steve Rowe made for me.... only my little (weak) lathe and poor quality cutting tools don't give me quite such a nice finished product!
