    M/Nissin Numbers

    I did a little digging. I think it's a front brake caliper off a honda rebel cmx 250. Not sure of the year but it looks like an '85 and up. The whole assembly a complete caliper looks to be around $45. I am not 100% sure so please double check me.. https://www.ebay.com/i/232292780015?chn=ps&ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F711-117182-37290-0%2F2%3Fmpre%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.ebay.com%252Fi%252F232292780015%253Fchn%253Dps%26itemid%3D232292780015%26targetid%3D537337823424%26device%3Dm%26adtype%3Dpla%26googleloc%3D1025001%26poi%3D%26campaignid%3D1590235577%26adgroupid%3D59485653105%26rlsatarget%3Dpla-537337823424%26abcId%3D1140216%26merchantid%3D113437936%26gclid%3DCjwKCAiAodTfBRBEEiwAa1haupW01D4ButfUaiOJZkQ2B07YuPqKnO6LQmYyZiyp_GEhujU-QU8xZBoCkt4QAvD_BwE%26srcrot%3D711-117182-37290-0%26rvr_id%3D1751026509391%26rvr_ts%3D387377651670ada61ee1a163ffe54323

    M/Nissin Numbers

    I don't know the numbers but I do believe the caliper has the same parts as a honda rebel. I posted numbers a long time ago. Probably on the old site...

    RT 195 vs SS 200

    I still have that rt for sale but I did just see this on LCUSA Facebook classifieds.

    RT 195 vs SS 200

    I would like to elaborate on the description of the rt performance. The torque is pretty feirce from way down rpms and holds the power very well up the rev range. It drops off pretty high up the rev range , but by that time you are more than ready to change gears. It's like that in every gear. My gearing is 46/15, a.f. rayspeed close ratio box, mec eur mid weight flywheel. 30mm mikuni, jl 4 ( it's what I had to use) Any ss200 owners on here? I'm interested to hear.

    RT 195 vs SS 200

    Honestly, I got a price on the rb that was way to good to pass up. I was going to hold out till I could afford the quatrini 210. I think the rb will be more of a challenge to set up with a longstroke crank. The ss200 looks pretty straight forward if you use casa parts and follow there build formula. I have had no experience with the ss200 or the quatrini 210 nor have I seen them in person. As Mike said it might be less expensive to tune or try different things like a light flywheel and different gearing. On the flip side, in the past, when I've had a kit that wasn't fast enough and started to put money into a tune bigger carb and an expansion chamber, it never seemed enough.

    RT 195 vs SS 200

    I think now the question of reliability comes down to how it's built and maintained. Like with all kit upgrades, all othere parts in the motor may need to be upgraded as well. Because an ss200 was designed for racing, it is more likely to need specific upgraded parts because of the higher power output and and a lot more skill to set up correctly. With the rt, you may be able to use some parts you currently have, it's made to be easy assembly and was designed for touring. The rt I have has a reedvalve, boost port and a longstroke crank so I can't really comment on how a stock kit runs. Mine pulls really well. Starts and idles great. Is good on fuel. I run a 30mm mikuni tmx and expansion chamber. It's stronger than a stock 200. More like an Imola. At least how I remember an imola. The quality of the kit is really nice. My case was matched to the kit. Easy assembly. Easily cruises with modern traffic. City or higher speed roads. Fun. As I understand it, as a bolt on, the rt is on par with the gt 186, mugelo and imola. The next step up in performance woul be the rb 20, casa ss200 and quatrini 210. Just for full disclosure, I'm upgrading to an rb20.... Here is one of many links to the topic that was discussed before.

    Ser.3 LI125 w/reedvalved Rt195 project

    Finished. Kind of. Got it ready to race and was riding it to work. Runs great. Got a deal on a different top end, pulled the motor. Current top end, the rt 195, piston, head, reed valve, 30mm tmx will be for sale shortly.

    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.
