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.

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...

Re: Still getting vibration on TS1 225

You really should use your clutch otherwise you are going to break something. 100% agree with you if don't use the clutch you'll eventually wreck the gearbox and if you've spent this long trying to solve the problem you'll only regret it later when you'll be spending out on the gearbox. your name i...

Re: Mag flange

what ignition advance did you set ? depending on the current advance, you might pick up some high rpm power by retarding the ignition slightly although that would probably reduce low down power a bit but that doesn't sound like it would be an issue lol Let us know how it goes good luck

Re: Mag flange

very unlikely i would say but we really need a lot more information about your setup ........carb, atomiser jets, inlet manifold, exhaust , , stator points gap / elctronic stator ignition advance , gearbox etc etc . I just spent months sorting out my scoot which involved removing and replacing my to...
