I really like this style of crashbars, they're connected to the grab bar and the floor. It looks and feel secure. I was expecting something lighter but was surprised at their sturdiness and weight. Nice.. First I tried to install the front wheel one bar without taking the wheel off, forgetaboutit!. That tiny little screw that secure both haves of the rear bars really gave me a hard time. It would not fit in the hole. Had I paid more attention I would have seen the second hole next to it that was drilled for that screw. I wonder why two drilled holes. That's the trouble getting old, just can't see without reading glasses. Anyway I like them. Bought them from Scooterpartsco, came nicely packaged.Free shipping can't beat that.

Limited edition Vespa Sprint 150 ADVENTURE (matte green)
Since I found many Sprint lovers, I decided to repost one of my question here.
I'm looking to buy a 150 Sprint ....

I'm perfectly happy with getting a Sprint in any colors BUT recently I ran into this store that is selling a 2nd hand "adventure" series. Anyone knows anything about it? Besides the fact that it comes with all the carriers, frt screen and matte black rims and triming? The store is asking for a premium for it since there is only 50 of them that ever made it to Japan.

Question is.... is it worth paying that extra (US$1000+) for a 2017 limited model that has 1100km on it OR save that $1000 and buy another 2nd hand 2017 regular looking sprint with similar mileage on it??

Anyone owns one of these limited versions? Is it only in the Asian market?

When I look at the different variations of any given model, say a "Touring", the only difference is the presence of racks and a windshield. Paint , of course, varies from model to model and year to year. In most cases, everything else is the same. The only thing different about a Sprint over a Primavera is the square headlight (older Primaveras had 11" wheels vs. the Sprint's 12s).

In the case of the bike above, I would say the blacked-out paint job is the biggest difference (looks nice, btw), the windshield, and the racks make up the "Adventure." That red shock up front appears to be unique as well.

If all of those things are worth $1000 to you, then go for it. Especially the paint job. You can add any of the other items to a cheaper scooter.

Go for it
If you love it just go for it. If you keep it for five years the premium charge is less than 55 cents a day...

Dr. Pulley Sliders
I didnt find any reports of Dr.Pulley sliders on the 3v engine so I thought Id write Up my experience of installing 12g sliders in my 946:

Stock rollers:
Graham Hill 35mph
Flat tuck max 70mph
Upright max 66mph
Uphill freeway max 55mph
Up Conference Dr. to bridge 45mph

12g dr. Pulley sliders
Graham Hill 37mph
Flat tuck max 70mph
Upright max 66mph
Uphill freeway max 55mph
Up conference dr. To bridge 47mph

Feels like slightly more pull at takeoff and roll on at mid speed. Faster recovery at top of hill. No noticeable increase in rpm by sound. Differences are very subtle. 12g were the heaviest sliders I could get and I was afraid theyd be too light being about 20% lighter than stock rollers. Turns out 11g sliders would probably be better for performance gains.

^ Did you measure the ones you took out? 15g? if your 20% is correct. That would help.
Put them in a bag and take to the post office and ask how much to post.

The original rollers in my 2019 Primavera were 15.6 grams.

Side stand spring size for 2017 Vespa Sprint
Somehow my side stand spring sprung off when I went over a speedhump and now I am stuck having to use the center stand. Could somebody with the stock side stand please provide the length of the spring so I can try and order a replacement. My local Vespa dealer can not source one.

Have you tried taking it to a local Honda/Yamaha/Suzuki dealer to see what they have. Or even a back street guy.

If postal service is Ok there I could get one for you here?

Does anyone have a photo of the inside of the handlebar/headlight cover on a Primavera? I'm looking to see if there's space in there for some additional electronics.

No photo, but I had it all open when I installed my LED headlight. What are you trying to install? Plenty of room for standard size relays

I had planned to put some Arduino stuff in a 2" x 3" x 1.5" box but I could package it differently to work around obstacles if necessary. I'd just like to get a rough idea of what I have to work with, without opening up the scooter now.

There's a little more to it. Some parts have been removed from the breadboard while I solder it together. It should all fit in the box but I could arrange it differently in need be.

For the curious: it's to be a compass and clock if I can make it work. The display will be outside the handlebar cover.

Im considering removing my factory crash bars. Because I like to live dangerously.

Do I need (un)mounting hardware, or does it use the original bolts. Previous owner cant find any spares.

As I recall, the crash bars used the original bolts at the side, under the foot pads. The center bolt under the body was new but without the crash bars it's not needed. I suppose if the side bolts are too long you could get new ones anywhere.

Tomorrow I could look in my tool box for spare parts removed when I installed the crash bars.

Why I ordered a Vespa
A friend won a competiotion for all expnses paid week with Canary Motorcycle Tours in Gran Canaria and he asked me along. I had 2 days to myself and hired a Primavera 125. Have always admired Vespa's and fell in love over those 2 days. Beautiful scenery and a carefree relaxed pace compared to the frantic and some challenging riding with the Tour guys.

Can not wait to get my ride

Moving from GTS 300 for Sprint 150
Hello all - I sincerely hope everyone is doing as well as possible in these most strange of times. As I find scooter conversation can be a good temporary escape, I thought I'd pose a question for the forum.

I'm in the process of selling my 2016 GTS 300 Super and getting a 2020 Sprint Sport. The GTS is great, but it's just more than I need. I've heard many good things about the handling on the newer Sprints and Primaveras, but most of my "small frame" experience is on an older LX. What can I expect? Also, any other info that can be shared about the switch is greatly appreciated.

Cheers and Be Safe!

Welcome! I have a 300, an LXV 125 and Primavera 150. The one I enjoy the most is my primavera, mine is 2016 but love how quiet it is and the handling.

2018 Sprint 150
I have a 2018 Sprint. Unfortunately I never rode a 300 to do a comparison. Top speed somewhere in the mid 60s. It gets up to 55 quick enough. Handles very well. I put some barends on it and chrome. THe fly screen helped with wind and looks great. I always wanted a Vespa. I love it. I ended up putting a black bicycle cage on the back (2nd pic) vice the milk crates I have in the first picture.

TC3 Might try clear Truck Bed Liner
I wanted to protect the undercarriage from small stone and such. I got a couple paint brushes, masking tape, and painted on three layers of clear truck bed liner. Looks good (hardly noticeable) and its holding up well. I've had it for a little over a half year and it looks fine.

Great idea and certainly worth considering and I agree it is not really noticeable. Nice colour that

It's been now a few years since I had my Sprint. Before I bought it, I did try a 300 GTS too.

I liked the slimmer, lighter feeling of the Sprint. It felt really agile, but still very refined in modest speeds.

GTS felt a bit more planted at higher speeds, probably mainly due to the additional weight.

Sprint is more sensitive to the weight of the rider - those horses pull a light rider quite nicely, but have their limit under more weight.

Re: Moving from GTS 300 for Sprint 150
Thank for the replies. The reinforce what I've heard - that the ride itself is a bit better. I'm 5'11' 165 and was a bit worried the 150 would feel too small compared the the 300.

Gremlin bells - funny how one can always learn new things!

I've never heard of those before and had to do an internet search to find out more

What I did know, was that around here, folk-tales and some old writings state that bells have been used against 'wicthes, demons' and such in the middle age. Apparently especially children wore a lot of bells in the beginning of the summer season to gain good luck for farming.

Hi, I from Kuala Lumpur and wanted to share the experience of this bore up kit and camshaft from Kawahara and the fuel adjuster from iquteche Indonesia. From the experience, the cylinders need to shave as it sit above the block during installation, the fuel adjuster is a sensitive piggyback if fiddled with it. It will cause the bike not to start. I am facing a host of problems after the installation. I did not bring the bike to dyno, after installation so the fuel adjustment is a problem. The sellers are somehow responsive when it comes to trouble shooting. I do feel the surge in power for my initial test but I think with the problems, the bore up are not worth the money. Let me get the problem sort out further, if it is unreliable, I will revert back to the original setup. Members, if you have similar problems with malossi kits or kawahara, please share and comment.
