On a mission to combat noise

Re: camera

1080 is adequate I find. Any videos that are uploaded to youtube are processed and reduced to a lower quality anyway. Let me know when you have uploaded a video I'd like to see how your 185cc worked out . I find Windows Movie maker 2.6 is a very good easy to use video editing software and its free t...

Re: Casa Kit on 6 volts?

Just a quick update for anyone who may be interested! Fitted kit on Sunday, on 6 volts, with a Dellorto 22mm carb, and an AF 42mm exhaust. Absolutely love it. Been out today, and it has transformed scoot. Flew up hills in 4th, which it struggled to get up in 3rd with old top end! Loads of low down ...

Re: Casa Kit on 6 volts?

What camera did you use for your video last year? Would like to do one of a run, but not wanting to spend too much, and not sure which to get! I use a Mobius which is very compact and HD quality video. You can attach to your computer and configure it to do various file formats and video quality and...

Re: Casa Kit on 6 volts?

Hi Johnny, Nice to hear from you, and glad, after all your issues towards the end of last year, you are now up and running! As I have mentioned in my post yesterday, really pleased with the Casa kit. I was expecting to have to go 12 volt, but, touch wood, all seems fine. Running the 22mm dellorto, ...

Re: Casa Kit on 6 volts?

I know 12 volt electronic ignition is recommended, but just curious to know if anyone is running a kitted scooter, still on original 6 volt points system, and if so, does it run okay? Reason I ask, is that I have a standard LIS 150, still on 6 volts,for which I have bought a Casa 185 kit, as I want...

Re: Jetting

if you haven't already fitted an auto advance , now might be the time to consider it . ;) At 8000 rpm it would over-advanced at a static 17 degrees . According to Webster and Broadhurst you would probably be needing as little as 14-15 degrees advance at 8-9000rpm https://www.mbscooters.co.uk/info/mb...

Re: Still getting vibration on TS1 225

yes I can see that you don't give 2x figs ...........that is why you went to all the trouble of posting to tell me ! Your 'advice' is worthless as you clearly have no understanding of gearboxes or gear shifting ... you can't even spell worth a damn either. If you are going to respond to other member...
