Re: P200e running issues when engine hot!

Initial thought would be that you have an air leak somewhere, however check that the throttle cable, slide is returning fully first as this would also cause your increase in revs. If all well, if start with the easy checks, carb and box gaskets, cylinder head and flywheel side seal. Don't panic yet ...

Re: Pros and cons of a 22 tooth primary on a kitted P125?

I run a 22 on a standard 150 without issue, still pulls well up hills and into headwinds. Sito+ exhaust so lower torque curve helps.
Also run a BGM 177 with 23\68 gearing which is a fantastic cruiser without loosing too much low to mid range.
Hope it helos

Put us out of our misery and let us know what the missing words are. I've had some fun making my own up though....

Re: 100/90 Tyre

Rubs on clutch cover with a Conti scootsmart even with two washers spacing the hub out from the rim. Much better fitting 100/90 on a standard PX rim. Two spacer washers and no clearance issues. I'm assuming different tyres will be slightly different.

Re: Lml side panels

I've never had an issue mixing and matching LML and Vespa. Occasionally the rear pins are welded in slightly different places so the rear sits slightly differently.

Re: Lacking performance at top end

I've Just looked at the old kits fitting instructions and they recommend a 115MJ but if with a cut crank up jet 5-7 points, so max 122. What makes you think it'll seize?

130 is a big MJ for that set up.

We're does the 0.785 come from why not 1mm
The first 3 figures only calculate the square capacity. The 78.5% is the percentage which converts it to a cylinder.
