Re: Gori GP50 or JL Snail ?

Well the euthoria of unwrapping my new Gori GP 50 was short lived. I should have saw it as a bad omen when I checked my tracking info only to find parcel farce couldn't deliver as I was no longer residing at that address!! So anyway after some time spent on the phone it turns out that despite my ad...

Re: Gori GP50 or JL Snail ?

Cheers for that, but look how bad the coating is and how easily and quickly it burns off. Just like most coatings. No not like "most coatings" I sprayed my Scootopia clubman back in May last year with 1200 degree paint and it still looks like new, the lacquer on the Gori looks as though it burns ri...

Re: Bgm Clubman

I've just put a GP50 on an Avanti and it won't pull 5.0 gearing in top. It's strong in third 58 mph on gps. I'm wondering wether to try a 14t front sprocket or a BGM pipe. Wish this test was done already! I've been considering one for my ts1 but I'm put off by the peakiness. I think it may be bette...
