Re: gear box chatter

Have you checked how the gearbox sits with the layshaft? I fitted an Italian SX200 gearbox to my Indian case and luckily it was just about spot on with a 2.0mm shim: http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y183/cruxiform/004-1.jpg Worth checking with the pics in Sticky's manual. While I was taking these pi...

Re: FOXHAT 260's

And most people don't ride as fast as they say they want to. We get lots of queries for engines to "do a genuine ton" etc. And these people ride with folk on std px125s so they don't need that spec, they just think they need it. I guess it's a form of mechanical vanity with some people. All of the ...

Scootermania and Run videos

These are two videos I uploaded to Google last year, taken from VHS so the quailty is none too clever but they're still watchable. The first is Scootermania, a documentary shown on Channel 4 in the early 90's: [googlevidid]711935178741143089[/googlevidid] The second is 'Run', againshown on Channel 4...

Re: rapido 250 what set up ?

I think the classic one is best for the road... come to think of it I think the classic is the one the racers base their motors on rather than the race version. I've got a Rapido 225 classic kit that's been tuned by Ralph Saxelby, the exhaust timing is still less than the race version I think. He f...

Re: Targa Twin!!!

Re: GT Kit Jetting

Hi Richard, so in a nutshell if an EGT wasn't used then Soulsurfer wouldn't have been any the wiser? Therefore he could have had 1000's of miles of trouble free riding ? I'm beginning to think the EGT has now become a paranoia meter for Lambretta riders. No 'cos it runs like s**t!! Yesterday I was ...
