Scoot RS Ignition switch

Whilst in Brittanny recently, my ScootRS ignition switch key wouldn't switch off due to key locked in barrel (tumblers must have got fecked), so had to stall her to stop engine.

Re: Timing Strobe

I think that means if you run the strobe off the scooter's battery rather than a separate battery not connected in any way to the scooter. And if you use the strobe with the sliding clip that goes over the HT lead, make sure the arrow on the clip is pointing towards the spark plug.
