  1. The message you posted in the Specialist sub-forum is nearly identical to the post I made regarding the Club magazine - I think in 2015? The big part of my idea was that it should be released at the Jamboree each year. Because this could serve as a yearly tie into the financial reporting obligations, eliminate a bunch of the shipping charges because members will get it at the Jamboree while a huge portion of the remainder could be sent back to be distributed by Ambassadors/regional reps, it could serve as a Jamboree guide as well with maps and itineraries, etc.


    Publish once is the best decision.

      That would also work, would help to have the administration be more engaged in the Jamboree planning as well. How can we get this idea off the ground? The last Specialists was terrible. No offense if you had any part of it. The format is hard to read, the content is poor, etc. I literally skimmed it and tossed it.

      The publication of a physical magazine is pure vanity, but I think necessary. I think my original idea had it include the club directory, as well.

      How to get this idea some traction? Hell if I know. I'm not universally liked. Most people dismiss my ideas out of hand.

  2. Looks nice but $8K is more than I am willing to spend on it. I'll be interested to see where the eBay auction ends. It's currently at $4500
  3. Thanks! I forget to regularly check scoot.net. For sale since March eh?
  4. http://www.ebay.com/itm/282192229596 Genuinely interested, contacted the seller for more details with no response.
  5. My friends and I were just discussing headlight options and the pros and cons of halogen vs LED vs HID. What's the deal with that Jockey's headlight? I don't understand the point of it. It's 35/35 so what makes it better/brighter? Why not just use a halogen for a standard socket?
  6. Thanks Pete for making the trek out to Duluth. It was great seeing you and looking forward to reconnecting again soon. Cheers
  7. Oh, I like that adaptor bracket! Could even try to stash a couple spares behind it. Tail light probably no longer illuminates the license plate which may be skirting the law but almost everything on a vintage scooter skirts the law. Very nice!

  9. I love reading about your rebuilds because your pics and commentary are always very clear.
  10. The metal is soft, and does not need much heat. A few passes around and you're good. Use a long handle socket wrench. Do not use a hammer, vice or anything that is not required for the removal tool. I have put a towel on the mag flange side to protect the stator wires from rouge heat but beyond that, there should be no worries.
  11. It is part # 81008222, good luck Or just go to ace, buy a few M6, M8, M10 at various lengths. Thread pitch doesn't matter if you use a long enough spanner™
