Ming

1963 Li150

Recommended Posts

So this was my first Lammy, the one that started it all.  I call her Betty Blue.  Bought in 2004 and ridden all over the place (including up Rocky Mountain National Park, ~12,000 ft).  Blew the drive-side seal about 6 years ago.  Sat in the back of the garage meanwhile, and worse, I started cannibalizing from it for other projects.  Decided to do her right last year so full engine rebuild and she's now running an RT195, Scootopia big bore, OG Delly SH2/22, and BGM high flow mesh filter through the stock airbox.  Gearing is stock Italian li150 but with a 16t front sprocket which gives it a nice 4.89 4th gear ratio.  Still breaking her in, but already pulling strong and a joy to ride.  That Scootopia pipe is also fairly quiet, which is great since my other Lammies are loud as f*ck.  :D

How'd your jetting end up with that SH2/22 on the RT? 

 

I was thinking about doing that same set up except with a stock exhaust.

Pretty much used the jetting for an Indian GP200 as a starting point.  Right now I'm at:

50 choke

45 pilot with mix screw about 1.5 turns out

7895-1 slide

5899-2 atomizer

120 main

Revs nice and clean through the throttle range but I'll probably go up to a 123 main to be safe.  125 was too boggy.

Hope that helps.

Sweet! I remember when Betty Blue caught my eye up hear in Vancity Canada. Nice to see an Italian Li up here. All we seemed to have locally imported were Spanish S3 scoots.

What color  code is that blue Ming?

Ya know, I have no idea.  It was that way when I acquired it.

I like how you have a different awesome bike for what seems like each hour of the day Ming. That blue looks pretty good in person too.
