Hi guys,

I just took delivery of 2013 Vespa GTS 125 I.e. Super Red for Christmas and couldn't figure out what the plastic items and screws that are in the helmet compartment are for!

I tried to figure it out in the owners manual and in the internet but with no clue, Does anyone know?

Thanks

Post a photo of the pieces. Often there is a lock cylinder for a topcase and a heavier set of bar end weights with screws. Could be windscreen mounts or some other hardware.

It's time to take the scoot back to the dealer and have them install these items properly. If they are just spare plastic, they will tell you.

Cheers and good luck,
Bob

The pic above looks like a cover for an opening along one of the lower sides of the scooter. Look way down. Might be something different on yours but it looks exactly like the one on mine. Can't remember which side tho. Hope that's it. Congrats on the new scooter. 8)

The other item may be the battery pan. There is definitely a battery pan. Given that the dealer didn't install the strap, or the battery pan, it's possible the dealer installed the wrong battery, as in too big, so the strap and pan don't fit.

Just guessing.

David, you are absolutely right, item number one is the battery pan and item number 2 is battery bracket.

i just installed both on my own. i also noticed that the engine coolant level is below minimum or non existent. I think the dealer forgot to do pre-delivery inspection.

cheers to all who helped

Hi all

I reckon photo 3 is the tool case cover - when opening the glovebox you will see a square shaped hole where the tools go - I think photo 3 is the cover - good luck

See the parts manual here?

You might want to get real familiar with all of those documents and check out the MV wiki too

How poor is the dealer that sold you this scoot? Their attention to detail seems somewhat lacking...?

Hopefully their after sales service doesn't reflect the same attitude.

In the meantime; enjoy your new ride!
