Got my first Vespa! '01 ET4 w 2900 miles. Got annual service, new City Grip 2 tires, replaced speedometer cable, flushed all fluids, new air/oil filter, replaced intake manifold, upgraded Bitubo shocks front/rear. My Q is what regular maintenance checks aside from tire pressure weekly, oil level every 2 weeks, and battery on trickle charger are recommended or must dos to keep it running in tip top shape? It's garaged, and ET4s are said to be reliable. Thx for any recommendations to keep my older modern Vespa on the road!! Totally hooked and ride 4/5 times a week!

I would check oil once per week but that's me. Everything else you are doing is fine
If you are riding it that much per week y
Ou don't need to put it on a triple charger. That is for longer lay ups like over the winter if you live in an area where you can't ride year round

Sounds like you are sorted. Maybe add a spare fuse or three into your toolkit, and explore to your heart's content!

If it has the original CVT belt, you may want to open it up and check it out. 23 year old rubber may not last.
