When I get pulled over just for a "legal" check (driving license, insurance, papers), most of times I get asked about the noise my P makes. I say: "Well, it passed its MOT and plus, it's a 40 years old scooter, what do you expect??" Razz emoticon Razz emoticon Razz emoticon

Almost there. Timed and jetted (will probably need re-jetting). Had to make a custom speedo cable. I thought I needed to shorten the original one, but I actually needed a very long one. I had an ET4 speedo cable which I cut to length and then had re-pressed by a nearby shop specializing in speedometers & cables, the ends taken from the V50 cable. What's left is to bleed the front brake and finish with the headset. Hopefully till Saturday...

Ah forgot about the tax…

Yeah that's pretty expensive.

I'd pass on the filter, but it's 3 times the price of the BGM on my side.

For pump free, worry free, don't think it's that bad…

This is the lock. Just be careful when you shape the hole. Needs two flat sides...

did you have to do custom striping on the fender side with the bump out for the shock? Seems like a regular would end up too short due to the added length of the bump vs flat.

To my surprise, no. I even needed to trim a bit at the end to follow the rear line of the mudguard...

Is that an et2 fork?

Looking into buying a Smallframe, wondering what fork options there are…

I was looking at PK forks… seem good for disc brake conversion, but not sure..

Most of them need customising right?

No. Shortened and twisted PK fork. ET / newer forks are on the other side…

No. It's to compensate the offset the PX disc carrier brings to a PK fork. That way the wheel is centered and not to the left…
