  1. Yes, please post photos. I am specifically interested in tv side panel examples. So tv style panels with Li horncast and front fender would be factory correct?
  2. https://k2customs.co.uk/products/fork-spring-compressor-tool A different solution How to use it:
  3. I believe servetas had li style bodywork, some used sx style side panels , sx/ tv horncast/ headset on some models. Please correct me if I'm wrong. My question, is did any serveta model use tv/li special style bodywork such as side panels?
  4. I've never used an afr gauge but would be interested in details. What kind of number would be a good balance for air/fuel and where/how is the sensor mounted
  5. Not really sure what other people do, but I suspect since s.i.p. speedos have egt and c.h.t. gauge compatibility , that's what is most common. I have been using a westach 2 inch gauge for 15 to 20 years. I think if you have a tuned motor for touring or race, it is a must have, at least for set up. I prefer egt to cht. I can tell immediately what a change in carburation, plugs, timing, compression and weather does. Westach egt gauge is what I use. You will have to buy a thermocouple as well. I suggest the 1 1/4 inch clamp on probe. They do sell weld on sensor lugs that the thermocouple can be screwed into. They also sell a double 2 inch gauge for egt and cht. Be sure you get a gauge that works in the correct heat range. 100 to 1900 works well. How and where you mount it is up to you. I modified a second headset top, so I can switch back to a stock look. I have seen people using modified under headset mirror mount brackets www.westach.com https://www.sip-scootershop.com/en/products/exhaust+gas+temperature+sensor+_5001egtj
  6. All I can say is I've never had an issue with a rayspeed product. If I've had questions, they are very personable and helpful. Had various problems with no support with BGM and Casa performance. Go for it and let us know!
  7. Are the shouldered nylock nuts you are using designed to be used without a washer? I'd like to use a similar set up. Never saw anyone else use them and want to make sure I am using them what they where designed for.
  8. Welcome to the wonderful world of Lambretta aftermarket parts. No instructions and needs fiddled with to fit. Also only to be used on the race track
  9. Very cool. Looks great! Chain tensioner can be run with chain on top or bottom. Just depends on the chain length and sprockets.
  10. You need an A adapter type kit for non gp. That's what the engineers are for. Ha! I didnt say it would work, just a different way of thinking about it. I like the original tool.
  11. Not my idea but clever if you don't have the tool. Pictures taken from: http://blue-ashtray.blogspot.com/2011/11/blog-post.html?m=1
  12. What does it feel like riding on that surface? 4 or 5 speed gearbox's ? What stroke crank self destructed? Love the pictures! Bikes look well put together. Great job! Todd, how much does your bike weigh?
  13. Had a similar experience many years ago. I called the police just to get a report so insurance wouldn't give me a hard time. Also had a ton of receipts for parts that helped too. An initial inspection of how the bodywork fits is a good place to start. If panels, floorboards no longer fit tight or when riding the steering feels stiff or has a "gyroscopic" kind of feeling thats a problem. Good idea to take the headset top off and inspect the handlebars for cracks in the aluminum. Did he just drive away or stick around for you?
