Ah rod, I think a lot of them are. Mine is at it at the moment. But have a dodgy fuel tap. When everything is freshly rebuilt it doesn't. I think my drip does be 2stroke though

Not necessarily. My VBB has never leaked a drop. It's got a bit of seepage around the edges of the case, but that's it.

The auto-lube on my Stella was always a leaky mess, but even that just made a mess on the cases and never hit the floor.

Your first guess was spot on: Chicagoans.

I'm surprised we don't have a parade and give the kids a day off school like we do for, say, Casimir Pulaski

Same here .... we get a dinky drip of engine oil - not fuel, not gear oil - right at the bottom of the case overnight. Must be the auto oiler. Did the Vader paper towel thing and still can't figure out exactly how it's getting there.

...chatted with Gene at Scooters O. He took some time to explain some peculiarities of old Lammy engines. Didn't make a penny by taking time out of his day to school me, but it's shit like that makes me loyal to Scooters O and Motorsport on the west side. Worthy.

Thanks again Scooters O, you guys rock.

...received a Care Package from SIP
1. Replacement exhaust for green machine. The previous Seri Pro was too loud for my neighbourhood. I'm hoping this one will be quieter since it has the standard looking box fitting. I sold the other one to BFR. He's a bad ass, and doesn't care how loud he is.

2. Main jets 76/78/80 and idle jet 45 to tune up from 74/42 current setup

3. Thought I'd rock a yellow lamp on the green one to see how it looks

4. Dogleg levers. I recently bought the classic pointy ones from SIP for mr green but I don't like how they feel. The angle off the grip seems greater than the stock levers and it always feels like my hand is gonna slip off the end without the ball.

5. Polini spring for when I do the clutch on the 75cc kitted silver one. The Polini spring in the green ones clutch is working really well.

6. Replacement exhaust gasket for the silver one I had to borrow to get the green one working.

7. Stand boots for the silver one, as one side has gone through.

Should keep me busy over the weekend

This one is a Serie Pro. If it's half way between stock and the previous one I'll be happy. Are the boxy bits not the same? This one looks identical to the stock one except for the pipes...

I just whacked the exhaust on. I'm very happy with it. It has a much lower note than the other Seri straight through pipe.....really low and throaty.

I'll take a video and post it later.

I can't get the wheel on because the seam around the box is fouling the tyre by a few mm. Can I just take a grinder to it. Looks like I'll need to take off half the seam width.

What I have done is set up the top connection which put the lower connection about 10mm away from the cross arm, so I bent the plate on the exhaust into an S shape to bring it closer to the cross arm, but this had left the box further back which is why it's fouling the tyre.

Should I do it differently

EDIT. Fixed it. Went all ghetto with some vice grips and bent the seam down. The stock pipe had also had this done to it I just noticed.

Cheers V. TBH, I have no idea if it's legal. Being a moped, I'm only required to license it yearly. No MOT DOT or warranty required.

I only ride in the day, and only within a 10km radius, so very small chance of picking up any trouble over it I'd say

In Illinois, yellow lamps are legal, but don't count as headlights--you must have a white headlamp. That means that you're running with no headlights from a legal perspective. So it's not illegal, but it won't have you legal, either.

today I... almost got killed when someone pulled out in front of me making a left turn. they almost got hit from behind too when they pulled in front of about 5 cars coming from the opposite way. i skidded about 30 feet to avoid hitting them. thankfully i didn't drop the scoot.

last night I... was following a car down main street who i could clearly see was reading facebook on their iphone while trying to drive. they were swerving in and out of lanes, and a few times I thought they were going to pop the curb onto the sidewalk.

Today I buttoned up the ported LML motor and threw it back in the Stella frame.

It fired up pretty much straight away with a little starting fluid, then was fine after that. Idles like a dream, starts on the first kick every time.

Tomorrow, I'll set the timing for real since I just used the mark on the stator plate to go for 18 degrees.

I'll also swap the 20/20 I had on the bench for the 24/24 from the VBB along with its license plate so I can actually get it out on the street. Today, I just rode it up and down the alley until it ran out of gas.

Right now, it idles beautifully and has a flat spot from idle until mid-throttle, then it jumps up and goes like crazy up to about 6,400 RPM, which is where it redlines.

The biggest problem I have at the moment is that I had to replace my flywheel and the P200E flywheel I picked up for it works fine, but the fan cover doesn't want to fit over it.

Even stranger, the holes on it no longer align with the holes in the case. It's a little bit too short (too small diameter) by 1/4" or so. I'll have to figure that out, along with various other bits, but the thing is running after a rebuild that's dragged out for various reasons since July 2012.

It's an electric start flywheel, as the Stella has a starter. It will be electric start again once I put a new battery in it, not that it matters too much with a consistent first-kick starter.

The fan cover not fitting is kind've pissing me off, though, as it's such a silly thing to be holding me up from riding it after everything else.

I mean if the P200E was a non-electric start, then the case and cover is a slightly different.

The motor is an LML. I had to destroy the original flywheel getting it off and the price of a P200E flywheel & stator was about a quarter of the price of a replacement 2005 Stella flywheel & stator.

I have two flywheel covers for it, one for a P200E which I ordered and the original cover that came on the bike.

They both rub the flywheel and neither of them fits the screw holes on the motor case. The only thing I can think of is that I have the original Stella cover on the VBB's flywheel, and I'll check that in a bit, but that still doesn't explain the holes not aligning since if that's the case, then the VBB flywheel cover is one of the ones that doesn't fit the LML cases.

Correct. The VBB is a non-electric start case, therefore the cover is different.

Got my bike running again!!!!!!!! It took me a while, but I just completed my first engine rebuild. The motor has never felt this good. I still have to adjust the carb to get it right (it's stalling on me) but managed to gun it down my street. My family couldn't believe it.

On a down note, soon after I started it I tested the turn signals and lights, which were working, but then I think my bulb blew and now I have no working lights (front, rear, horn, or turn signals). So I'm not out of the woods yet. But the engine runs!!!!!! Soo excited.

Correct. The VBB is a non-electric start case, therefore the cover is different.
Yeah, I've somehow wound up with two spare covers that would fit the VBB and NO cover that will fit the LML. Go figure.

Now I just need to figure out the tuning. First kick start, idles like a top at 1,700 RPM's, but if I jump on the throttle, it dies. Trying to actually ride it, it has pretty much NO power off idle, either. If I goose it a little to get it up to the mid-range, though, then once it gets on the main jet, it goes like a bat out of Hell, so all hope is not lost, but it still kind've sucks a little.

I need to try some different atomizers, maybe, but I'm at a bit of a loss on this one. I was going to do it this afternoon, but fell asleep on the couch for three hours instead.

On the bright side, I also put a 20/20 back on the VBB and it's running better than it ever did on the 24/24, especially mid-throttle. Props to Rob Hodge for his always-ignored advice about how most scooters can't actually draw enough air to benefit from the larger carb's.
