Interesting!

Got a part number? (I know, I'm asking a lot...)

Was so excited to hear this. I spend a lot of time of logging roads and lost mine long ago.

I put in a call to VM and apparently they don't carry these. Piaggio doesn't make this replacement part. Bummer.

Interesting, I wonder if Jeremy just took it off a floor model or if they are limiting to customers. I emailed them before the holiday for clarification. (the posting probably made them nuts with calls for a $9 part)

I wondered too and asked, it's not their policy to take parts off other scooters on the floor.

Odd.

You dont need the bubble do you? it just catches extra oil. I guess it is probably better for the environment though.

On the GTS 250ie there are two,
take the one from the top and push
it on the bottom and plug the top
one with a rubber plug from OSH. 8)

Or get a silicon paint mask from a powder coating shop for 50 cents.
