ScootRS Parts Reviews
Actual customer reviews, comments, feedback and more on ScootRS parts:
Not exactly reviews, but ScootRS is a proud sponsor of the following scooter racing teams with our parts:
SRP Racetech, BSSO
We are a proud tubeless rim sponsor of the SRP Racetech team of Ralph Remnant and PJ McLaverty, 2008 Group 7 Champion. With their tremendous Lambretta race experience dating back to the 1980's, and 12 sidecar titles and 1 overall British Scooter Championship title to their credit, we wish them continued success.
PJ is doing well in Group 6, the rims seem to be working well, we'll keep you posted.
Hi ScootRS, just a short note to keep you updated on how the racing is going. The last meeting, Cadwell Park, proved to be a great success for both myself and SRP Racetec. I was gifted with two overall race wins - 1st time a Group 6 has won a race outright for a year! My team mate, Stuart Day (Group 4) came a very respectable 3rd in the 1st race and then 2nd in race 2! Again, many thanks for your help and support - it is very much appreciated.
[Also see p.145, Scootering, August 2009, for photos of PJ in action with two 2nd place finishes at Mallory Park.]
Hi everybody @ ScootRS. All the hard work paid off this weekend, as I finished the season by winning the Group 6 Championship. Ralph & I also won the Group 8 & Overall Sidecar Championship.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support this year, it has been greatly appreciated. There has also been much interest in your tubeless rims, of which I cannot sing their praises enough. We are now looking towards next year, for which I would ask for your continued support. Again, many thanks. Regardz PJ & everybody @ SRP Racetech.
Tony O'Brien, BSSO
We are a proud 90SS headset sponsor of Tony and his Green Hornet Vespa 90SS. Tony is also sponsored by Charlie Edmonds' Performance Tuning and Falc Racing.
I started racing in 1988 on a group 2 125cc Vespa tuned by Norrie Kerr. In my second year I was offered 3 sponsored rides in the 100cc class on my 90ss (same one that's in the videos) which I won with my chosen team/sponsor Kegra racing beating Norrie and Taffspeed.
I didnt race again until 1999 winning group 3 150cc in 2000. Since then I started on engine developement as kit barrels were introduced for Lambrettas and Vespas within the standard class. After a brief time with JB Tuning, Charlie Edmonds tuned my Falc kit with a view to racing in Group 5 158cc specials class.
I've raced the bike 4 times now in this guise. First outing last year I came 6th from last on the grid of 30 setting 3rd fastest lap. Second outing was Cadwell last year. I came 2nd and set the outright scooter lap record at 1.58 from 25th on the grid. This year I raced Mallory Park setting fastest lap and only 0.5 outside the record - you can see that on the video. Finished second in race one but hitting a curb in race two whilst in second place.
The bike has 31hp and is, as you can see, a handful to ride. I can't race every meeting due to work commitments but every time the bike goes out it creates a stir and is now known as The Green Hornet.
Just got back from Germany and the English reset the Nürburgring lap record. Charlie Edmonds 2.45 Lambretta lap record, Tony O'Brien 2.48 Vespa lap record sponsored by yourselves.

I raced GP4 last year. I am currently using a ScootRS hydraulic disc brake.
We are just building a GP6 bike for 2010 and we would like to use the anti-dive version.
Many thanks for your support, it's much appreciated.
Best of luck in the 2010 season.
Our parts are constantly noted in the world's major scootering magazines as interesting new releases or shown on featured scooters, but some are also directly reviewed.
Our tubeless rims - for Lambrettas and Vespas - were a world first. As Scootering Magazine wrote, “ScootRS [is] the first through the chequered flag with their [tubeless] wheel”. As such, they were specially reviewed over three separate issues and hailed as “very good quality” and “a major advance in safety”.
In 2010, after a 4-year test on a scooter, an update was published:
Update - ScootRS [tubeless] rims
Their first trip was on the rear of the scooter when it went two-up to Holland for a custom show soon after the article. Since then it has been to a rally and race-track in France, numerous places in the UK, as well as being used as a commuter scooter and workhorse.
Sometime during all this the tyre emigrated to the front of the scoot, and even after spending six months in the garage without being ridden while I was off enjoying the Vespa GTS, the PX was pushed back into service and the tyre with the ScootRS rim needed barely any air in it.
As such once complete and fitted the ScootRS rim has done exactly what it's meant to.
