Hi guys

??? silly question, but there seems to be a lot of knowledgeable people on this thing, so what to try my luck ...

... can a genuine 200cc (http://www.sip-scootershop.com/en/products/cylinder+kit+piaggio+200cc+_pi843291),

250 cc (http://www.sip-scootershop.com/main/base/Details.aspx?ProductNumber=PI843517)

300cc (http://www.sip-scootershop.com/main/base/Details.aspx?ProductNumber=PI876457)

(website FYI) .... fit on a 2015 UK vespa GTS super ie 125.

Wanna give my new baby a bit more bang for her buck.
This bike is used by another, so not able to do full test etc.

Just wonder if it can be done and how please ... and want other bits can be done to it and if its worth it .... ie, changing the rollers, clutch, exhaust etc.
Thanks in advance everyone

yes and no
hi there,
i have done it
kubler kit is the easiest way, other than that you need to have expert machining knowledge and uber mechanical skills making the crank fit a quaser cylinder in a leader engine.
good luck.

Assuming you are asking about simply bolting on the parts, without extensively modifying the engine or replacing the crankshaft...

200cc YES

250 cc NO

300cc NO

Depending on what you can get them for in the UK, the best bang for the buck is going to be the complete Malossi 218cc kit, because it bolts right on and addresses the major weakness of the Piaggio engine in terms of making power.
