I took the MP3 250 in for its 6,000 mile service, told them about a wobble in the front end on long sweeper curves. Was told the front tires were cupped and needed replaced. After the tires were replaced( another long sad story) they took a test ride. Called me and told me there was a notch in the steering that they had no idea what was causing it or how to fix it. They would have to call the Piaggio rep to find out.
I calmly suggested they check this sight, then did a search and sent the service rep links to the appropriate threads. The scooter has 6,200 miles on it and is out of warrenty. I think I am truely screwed as the Piaggio rep seems to think that this failure is too rare to warrent a recall or even a service bulletin.
I was wondering if any one out there with a 250 in the U.S. that was having the same problem.
