    Ser.3 LI handlebar switch

    Thanks for the help! Got it. I had the tail light ground attached to the bolt that attaches the tail light housing to the frame. I moved the ground and it works great. They no longer sell the led tail light boards. I'll try the bulbs in the future

    Ser.3 LI handlebar switch

    Nope, not the ground by the tail light. Still nothing. It's a bgm (go figure) l.e.d. tail brake light 12 volt assembly

    Ser.3 LI handlebar switch

    I have a casa lambretta ser.3 LI handlebar switch. The wire colors are red, blue, yellow, green, black, grey, brown, long brown and long white. My question is what is the grey for? Not the long white. The grey wire. I have the grey plugged in the brown. The picture was taken from the scooter speed website. My problem is everything in the headset works as it should. There is power to the back of the bike to tail and brake light. Checked with multimeter. But neither tail or brake light works. Maybe a ground issue?

    Engine revs high

    Yes, air leak. Do everything others mentioned first.

    Engine revs high

    After doing what has been suggested, I would also check what plug is in it, what your timing is set at at. Check it yourself, don't take someone else's word for it. Also, are you sure it's a mikuni 30mm? A flat slide tmx or is it a 28tm? There is no 30 tm. A 30 tmx can be very tricky. The needles, power jet and needle jet can only be ordered from europe. They do not stock them in the states. At least I have not been able to find the 622 series, or power jets here. If it is a 30 tmx, I would suggest getting an easier carb to tune. If you have checked your timing and it's 18 degrees or less and you have at least an ngk b8es and are committed to using the 30 tmx, I would increase your main considerably. If it's at 220, I'd jump to a 240 and increase till it runs rich and back off from there. Hell of a hobby. Did the engine have the symptoms you described since you started riding it or did it steadily get worse? Did you make sure there's oil in the case?

    Hydra Rear Brake

    I love it. Looks great. It should solve the problem of the rear brake cable being just a little to short when using different manifolds, such as the ones available for RB's.

    Bgm Clutch drag

    I HATE a lot of BGM junk. Really glad you found the answer and posted the solution. It's bs the shop that sold it to me wanted me to send it to them on my dime so they could "check it out". Loop hole jumping. Shops, just back up brand new $400 items...

    Denied Access to site areas

    I wrote club management about this issue a week ago and have received no reply or problem resolution. My dues are up to date, I have been a member for years, I am signed in to my account. I cannot access the LCUSA Members area. What is going on? That does not include the fact that I can see the LCUSA Facebook Classifieds, but I can't respond or sell. Kind of worthless as a LCUSA member considering there are a majority of items f/s not listed on our site. Not at all what I paid my dues for. Please resolve asap.

    Try Adam Bower. He has his machine shop set up and he's in your backyard. And he's a L.C.U.S.A. member

    Riding (Mostly) Original Lambrettas

    Agree with TRs. It's not a matter of tuning to have the fastest, it's about safety. Stock for a museum, tuned for everyday. Where I live people will try to kill you so they can get to where they are going if you are "in the way"

    Nostalgic 4 E.S.R.A.

    So I've been digging through my stuff for old scene, bike builds and racing pictures and trying to consolidate them, and if they are hardcopy, scanning them. I used to have a ton of pictures from e.s.r.a. days and uploaded a lot to the yahoo egroup. Can't find but one disc from 2003, Beaver Run, PA. The old yahoo group is long gone it looks like. Anyone have pictures from e.s.r.a. days? Be a real shame if those images just faded away. Lots of hard work from a lot of good people. I'll send ya a zip drive to load up for me.... or drop box it.. I have some old video too
