If anyone has tried to replace the silent block, that massive plastic and rubber puck on the left side of the swingarm, you know what joy that can bring.
I decided to buy one of the Piaggio special tools and ordered it before last Christmas, hoping to have it by Spring.
Well, what a surprise, Piaggio was out of them.
So today I got the proforma for the next order we have coming in from Pontedera, and it's on the list. And it's about $200.
I'm going to use it a few times, that I am aware of right now, and then it will sit next to my special tool for the oil seal on the right side of the crankcase.
If anyone wants to use it, send me a PM. I will need a deposit for the value of the tool, and you will have to pay shipping both ways, but other than that, it's free, unless you break it.
