I started with the fact that it is too easy to mod the turn signal buzzer on a Vespa 250 because of the connector in the left knee pad panel area. So how best to do so on a LX150. I also wanted to be rid of the turn signal pods, but I did not want to loose the running lights.
Here is the darling Plum as she sits in her current spot in the garage. Stuff piled around her. (Effect of merging two houses into one larger one.)
There is one of the offending pods now... I did not think about them much till I saw pictures of Scoots without them. I really like the look of them gone..
Always put a cloth between your wrench and your paint. Be sure to tighten the cresent wrench very tight to avoid rounding the nut.
Here is my super secret advice: once you have removed a mirror, stick an allen wrench into the hole the mirror stand came out of. This prevents the two washers from falling all the way down into the floor pan of your scoot. Enough said about that....
here are those washers pulled up the allen wrench and out of the hole. I use this in reverse when putting the mirrors back on. This makes it way easier to get the washers in the right place.
Here is my second secret trick: I use an offset flat head screw driver to reach up into the handel bar cowling to gently lift the loop off the catch on one side.
This makes it easy to get the front cowling off without chancing scratching your paint or breaking the loop.
This shows that loop on the front lip of the rear cowling that makes it so difficult to get the cowling off.
