Just a little video to show the joys of scootering.
On a more positive note, the scooter engines finished running in. 500 miles and feeling pretty good. Can cruise two-up at 60mph with few problems. Needs a change of gearbox oil and we’re all sorted.
On a less positive note, the bloody sprint rack worked its way loose and scratched up the paintwork……
Spent a happy few hours at this event on Sunday. Was going to chuck it down so no camping for me and the missus. Some good bands – Blank Generation did some old-school covers and Ruder Than U did ska covers as well as their own material. Family-friendly Rally so lots of kids, lots of non-scooter people so a large and mixed crowd.
Had some work done on the scooter by Readspeed Scooters. Now got an iron-barrelled 230 kit with new carb, clubman exhaust, new crankshaft and bearings, new stator plate and flywheel, 19-tooth front sprocket, new chain and chain guides and a 6 plate clutch. All very nice and produces a mighty 17.6hp and 17ft/lbs of torque at 4000 rpm. A very nice touring motor.
Only problem now is that I have to run it in. Done 100 miles so far so just another 400 to go before it’s fully ok…… Fitted a C2C screen from Scooterlab to cut down the wind blast. Very effective I have to say.
