    I once made a tool to check the timing. got my timing wheel and read up, but I was never confident I had it right. then I popped the timing tool out. visually (with flashlight) moved the piston to TDC, backed it off to what the BTDC number according to my timing wheel. installed plug, connected the coil and fired it up. it was spot on with the timing light. I don't suggest doing that, but it worked for me!

    Scootopia v Casa stock S3 exhausts

    I did. it's there. So far I have learned that both Scootopia and Casa stock pipes have no baffle, just wide open expansion chambers. I got my original welded up and will run it until I can afford the Tutto exhaust in a couple months.

    Scootopia v Casa stock S3 exhausts

    Thanks Mike. I saw this on the Tutto site. This shows the mushroom. I'm getting conflicting information from Scootopia regarding their baffles/mushroom. I don't know what Casa is inside though I do know their Ancillotti is a straight pipe and expansion chamber, which is not right for my stock setup. I thought I was coming to a conclusion when I see Tutto's partner is Scootopia, but apparently not for exhausts as Scootopia states their S3 stock exhausts are based on the late SX design which have no baffles/mushroom.

    shifting perch paint color

    I'm getting around to painting my gear indicator arrow and 1-•-2-3-4. What's the right paint to use? Color red and brand? thanks

    Scootopia v Casa stock S3 exhausts

    anyone have a photo of an original series three exhaust opened up? showing inside?
  8. I'm looking for opinions on the Scootopia vs. Casa stock exhausts for the series 3. Info like quality, performance and fit. How do they stack up to original Innocenti exhausts? I'm not interested in hearing about clubman or big bore exhausts. thanks

    Riding (Mostly) Original Lambrettas

    I know there are a lot of tuners out there, but that's not me. Original machines are what I'm attracted to. I don't care if I'm a little slower. If I want to go fast, I'll drive BMW. I'll do stock-ish upgrades like maybe a larger carb or 12v electronic ignition or a slight upgrade to the exhaust. I have no plans for bigger cylinders or adding a 5th gear.
