Just had first service done but not by a Vespa dealer. Every thing done just like the book shows. The problem is that I have no way to check updates for the ECU.The nearest dealer is over 100 miles from me.Being 81 years young I have no way to get it to a dealer.I guess I will just have to run it till I have to get it to a dealer. Not very happy but that is what I get by buying a vespa with no dealer support.

I wouldn't be too concerned. I've done my own work for the past 5 years after the first service. Should pop by the dealer to see if I've missed anything, but essentially 13K miles without an update and running fine.

P.S. I'd have been by sooner but it's nearly 2 hours to get there.....

It would be useful, if possible, to carry out the maintenance service by an equipped dealer; of course you're very far away. My first maintenance service also checked me via computer and gave me the printout.

Road 3 hours to Richmond to get my MP3 updated, but it needed it to prevent a cold stall problem.
As long as it is running fine I would not worry about updates if you can't get to the dealer.

This. None of our scoots have had to have updates, all running fine.
