I had already successfully installed a Malossi 70cc, 19mm carb, Multivar and Leo Vince ZX in a Typhoon and had gotten incredible results.

I'm now considering a 2004 ET2 with 1400 miles for $2100, because I'd like to go with a more classic-styled scooter. I plan on going with all of the same performance parts, except I'd be using a Leo SP3 on the Vespa.

Question: Does the ET2 motor have to be removed in order to change out the cylinder? I've never worked on a Vespa, but the frame design appears a bit tricky to get one's hands on the engine. With the Typhoon, everything is exposed once the plastic is removed.

Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hugo

the answer is no you dont need to drop the motor to swap out the top end...you will need to open the spark plug door as well as remove both side panels...you can get at most of it from the top with the luggage container out...
