Tuned exhaust canister
Jan. 24, 2003, 10:16 AM

We've put some tuned exhausts back instock, including Vespa 200cc, so for those of you who have been waiting... The exhausts are slightly redesigned and feature a very nice, completely new canister design.

°°

We've also added some Lambretta hydraulic disc brake parts and options. For example, a hub only setup so you can combine it with a previous hydraulic set up, or the lever support only. -We also have all the other hydraulic brake bits listed if making your own system, or require spares.

From another post, we learn that Target stores have nice scooter posters that they will be removing from stores soon, so go and ask for one.

Keihin PWK flatslide carb review
Jan. 10, 2003, 11:08 AM

Great carb review in Scootering's new Jan./Feb. issue.

We've been arguing for a little while that people should replace their overpriced Dell'Orto carbs with a better and cheaper pattern Keihin PWK flatslide carb, or a pattern Mikuni on stock bikes. Some people were dubious without having seen proof. Well, here you go.

Scootering compared a pattern PWK carb - not ours, but based on the exact same Keihin PWK design - with a Dell'Orto PHBH on a TS1, and with a VHSB flatslide on a 205. The Dell'Ortos are more expensive, but in both cases Scootering preferred the PWK.

On a TS1 225 with PM pipe, they write:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The results on the dyno were fairly remarkable. Peak power was pretty much the same, but the [PWK] performed dramatically better through most of the power curve. The [PWK] had at least an extra horsepower from 3,000 rpm right up to 7,000 rpm and [...] it also had better over-rev performance and gave an extra hosepower at 9,000 rpm. On the road, the [PWK] made the engine much more crisp, pulling eagerly from much lower revs and on much lower throttles. It was easy to feel the extra power at low revs, and also the keenness to rev a bit harder.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One a 205 racer they compared a 34mm pattern PWK with a vastly more expensive 37mm VHSB:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
again the performance was quite impressive given the price of the carb. The [PWK] matched the Dell'Orto's performance at every point except the torque peak (7,300 rpm), and bettered it at both lower rpm (5,500 rpm) and at peak power (8,000 rpm).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is also noteworthy what they confirm about set up. Scootering writes that the 30mm Dell'Orto PHBH “proved much harder to set up.” In neither case did they even tinker with the needle on the pattern PWK, only the jets! On the dyno they saw that the “carb jetting is very stable throughout the rev range, which is very good for such a simply set-up carb.”

So, what are you waiting for? Only $119 with manifold, choke conversion, and everything, or $89 carb only.

Lambretta bearing
Nov. 19, 2002, 10:57 AM

Some great new items with big savings over typical scooter part prices.

We've added some bearings. Elsewhere a Lambretta SKF flywheelside bearing will cost you $30-45. We sell the exact same one for $24. We also have Japanese bearings which are equally good, only cheaper. We've opened motors years after daily use, and the Japanese are every bit as good as the German.

On a second front, if you are a little perturbed by the idea of paying $50+ for an intake manifold for your Keihin or Mikuni type carburetor, you'll be happy to know that we have added manifolds for both Lambretta and Vespa for $19. -Or you can buy a complete flatslide carb kit for $119, as opposed to $225+ elsewhere.

This is fun. More to come...

Lambretta pipe
Nov. 13, 2002, 7:27 PM

We always get our Scootering late. Just saw our stainless Lambretta pipe on pages 44-45, Nov. issue, on a sharp TS1. Take a look.

Tuned exhausts
Nov. 11, 2002, 9:23 PM

Just to mention that we have tuned exhausts back instock, for Lambretta and 125/150cc Vespas. No stainless yet. Hit the “exhaust” link above. -Redesigned with a performance gain and a beautiful and better canister.

We've also added the mufflers/canisters for sale.

Sick mechanic. Some delays for a day or so.

Vietnam “original” parts
Nov. 9, 2002, 12:06 PM

A nice pic of an “original” crankshaft on a locally “restored” Vespa we just took apart. And, yes, it ran.

The rest of the “original” items in the motor look about the same: mainshaft spline was welded, flywheel center was welded, head was welded... Oh, and then there were the brakes, which were very interesting, but we'll leave the rest aside.

Lambretta hydraulic disc brake
Oct. 2, 2002, 3:23 PM

Cool. Our Lambretta hydraulic disc brake graces a UK scooter on the front cover of Scootering Magazine for October. Take a look.

°°

In other UK news, some nice emails arrived:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hi scootRS Team,

I recently ordered a few parts for my Li 150 S3 and would like to say “Brilliant” with a big smile. Living in the UK I was a little apprehensive about ordering from a company abroad, not now though. The parts arrived in only 12 days from ordering, the quality is second to none, and the price was almost half of what it would have cost me in the UK. I will certainly be ordering lots more parts for my scooters in the near future. I would without hesitation recommend your company to my scootering friends.

Keep up the good work.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

An electric start SX200 we did was featured in Scootering before. The owner recently took it to the Wickstead Parts Fair:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It was a beautiful day and there were hundreds of scooters there. I parked up with all the others, then hung around to see what people would say about it. [....]

[T]he comments were all to the effect that it was a fantastic restoration and I think it sums it up when one guy said to me (when I made myself known) 'you've got the (dog's) bollocks there mate!'. In slang English, 'the dog's bollocks' means that it's THE BEST!

There were a couple of SX200's (unrestored but only fair condition) on sale at £2600 - so my total cost of £3500, delivered to the UK is a bargain!
