Installed a malossi 70cc Kit onto a Vespa ET2. Itís got a Malossi (Dellorto 19) carburetor, currently with an 82 main jet, stock airbox only modified with the three holes Malossi indicated in the instructions, and malossi red filter. Iíve gotten this far and performance is pretty good, just a bit more tinkering needed to get the mid range to perform and sound as good as it does when coming off the line and at WOT.

This is a plug chop done after about 4 miles on a new plug at WOT. How does this look to the tuners here?

Is the bottom ring on the insulator from combustion or the blade touching?

If that ring is a nice chocolate brown Iíd say your jetting is fine. Remember though you want to favor the rich side/easy rpms for your break in and then jet accordingly.

The plug pictured was a little lean if you look at the step, not where the cutting occurred. It was tan not chocolate so I went a little higher and have run that scooter for thousands of trouble free miles since.
