Was so excited to hear this. I spend a lot of time of logging roads and lost mine long ago.

I put in a call to VM and apparently they don't carry these. Piaggio doesn't make this replacement part. Bummer.

Interesting, I wonder if Jeremy just took it off a floor model or if they are limiting to customers. I emailed them before the holiday for clarification. (the posting probably made them nuts with calls for a $9 part)

I wondered too and asked, it's not their policy to take parts off other scooters on the floor.

Odd.

You dont need the bubble do you? it just catches extra oil. I guess it is probably better for the environment though.

take the one from the top and push
it on the bottom and plug the top
one with a rubber plug from OSH. 8)

Or get a silicon paint mask from a powder coating shop for 50 cents.
