Re: Italian GP200 Top Speed

^ Put the standard exhaust back in a, it could go quicker and near the Lambretta stated figure when they can out. My Tv175 flies. I've often wondered on a std motor if a clubman makes any difference at all. Yes, they make a lot of difference and not in a good way.. Loud and big isn't always better.

Re: Bad fuel disposal

To answer the original question-stick it in a container marked "weed killer" and use as such.

I had my RT engine rebuilt by a local guy and everything he replaced was given to me in a box. Presumably you could ask a dealer to do the same.
It's written into law in this state. The customer has to be offered the replaced parts.

^thats the one I've just fitted was a little surprised the ribbed side didn't have oil slots in them, perhaps an expert might know as to why?
Not expert by any means, but I would think that if a groove is machined, the gear would be very thin where you machine the groove, making it weak..

Re: Engine Nip!

Coasting and clutching is a lot easier on the body than stopping and kicking ;)

Re: D**khead on the phone.

More police out on the road needed in my view. I have to disagree. That might depend on how fast you want to go in a given location. Yes, riding is getting more dangerous because of phone users, duck an' dive is all you can do. Police won't be everywhere to catch peeps on phones no matter how many ...

Re: Remade Side Panels

Disagree. There's a set of presses somewhere down south in England. Not too far south though :)
