Hi Robero, welcome to the forum.
Scooter in bits every month by choice, or necessity?

sorry for late reply, necessity really , was refurbished abroad , looked nice but find somthing that isn't right every time I look at it ! I don't mind though I do enjoy it , used to work as a car mechanic ,got bored with doing it as a living but like doing it at my leisure. Currently trying to get the carb / idle right .
Next thing after that will be putting correct forks in (got the later type ones )

Well, they are the correct forks for the Vijay Mk2. I think I read somewhere that they are supposed to handle better.

It does handle surprisingly well (I am scraping the exhaust a lot on the road) but prefer the look of the previous forks.i will try to put an image on

Good Afternoon Everyone
Sure its been asked before but can anyone recommend a big bore kit which would not require replacing the crank and carb etc ? Not after galactic speeds, it will do 50mph on most roads 55 mph downhill at the moment .
thanks in advance
