Hmm, sounds like you're trying to sell him my bike? Are you sure you aren't the geezer who sold Tower Bridge a couple of times as well?

Re: 125 WITH NO SPARK

Don't bother looking for original transducers, get one of the Vespa ET125 types. They are good and more importantly new. Cheap too, the Chinese copies are worth a risk at about £15 on ebay. So far I've only bought the £30 odd types from Beedspeed, but all of them were good. I personally would go tha...

Re: Kanguro X1 Rear Monoshock

Thanks Ian. I'll check WMD online too-that does sound a bargain price. Maybe I need to get another trade account?? :oops:

Re: Separating crankcases

Is yours like mine with the ball/roller bearing main on the flywheel side? If so it sounds like that inner race may be tight on the crank axle. Heating the case won't help as the bearing is retained by a plate inside. Your new puller may do the trick but it's a bit unlucky for you-I've never needed ...

Re: Ignition fault

I should sort your pick up out before doing the flywheel coil. There was an article in either a recent ATG or possibly on the Netherlands club website explaining the different rotors and pick ups. That will probably tell you if the nuovaray pick up will suit the rotor you have.

Re: Ignition fault

If the pick up is cracked then it may well be faulty internally too. I guess you have tried swapping the transducers to see if the fault stays with the same cylinder or not?
Assuming you have done that than I would go ahead and replace the pick up.

Re: MRC Chairman’s run- 22nd August 2021

Sorry Tom, I can't be there either. I will however be leading a 100% Morini run on the Isle of Man that day. So just me then.

Re: Fuel - E5 - E10 - Aspen - so many questions

Never had problems running a 1000 Vincent on 100% methanol or a Velo KTT MK1 both racing machines or general over the counter Cleveland Discol which was around 30% alchohol on the road, they all went must faster and the road cars and bikes much smoother. Rubber fuel pipes were what you got from Val...

Re: Air box rubber hoses

Well I must congratulate Mdina on a speedy service. I ordered those bits on Saturday and at the same time I learned they were moving house. The suggestion being that my order may be delayed but as I planned to do a couple of days work I was prepared to wait. I got an email on Sunday saying the order...

Re: Camel throttle cable dimensions

Thanks Ian, I think you may have sent me these dimensions before! I'll take more care of them in future...;-) Yes I will be using a tank borrowed from another member to allow the use of the original airbox. Sadly I have damaged the tank I had made, through my own stupidity and also crashing a bit. (...

Re: Airbox rubber hoses/connectors

Mark, I also found a few manky 350 rubbers. One already splitting so I tried it on the 500 just to see. Predictably it was a silly idea but proved that point that although they are very similar they definitely are not the same. I got an email this morning to say that Mdina have actually shipped my o...

Re: Air box rubber hoses

Yes, that's right George-I only just saw the move mentioned! Oh well, 10 days won't hurt my order this time as I can still use the bike as it is for my next expedition to the Isle of Man. Interestingly they are moving down South, I thought they were currently oop North so it's quite a move with all ...

Camel throttle cable dimensions

Anyone got the dimensions for Camel Mk1/2 throttle cables please? Particularly the two smaller cables from the junction box/splitter to the slides. I need a set to enable me to swap back to a standard airbox. My current cables have a 90 degree elbow at the carb top which interferes with the original...
