Last Thursday my GT200 sputtered and poped but started when I gave it gas she died and I smelled fuel. I thought I might have flooded it some how so I let her set for a while. After about 2 hrs I went back and this time there was a harsh metal sounding Clack then nothing. I called "VESPA roadside asssistance" and they had a tow truck out to me in about an hour. The dealer finaly got to it today and somehow the carb was frozen wide open and they stated that they will replace the carb. I also mentioned that I felt the clutch slip when I had ridden long distance, before I could finish they stated that they would replace the clutch and put a new belt on. Although it will be about 1-11/2 mo before I get my GT back I was impressed with not having to haggle about repairs. Have any of y'all experinced the Carb thing, the clutch is well documented. BTY I only had 2000mi on the GT

Sorry to hear about that happening to your GT coffee. Did you take it to KC International? I was just wondering cause that's where I bought mine. How many miles do you have on it? I only have a little over 200miles on mine (it's still a baby).

Good luck w/ the repairs and I hope you get it back sooner.

I purchased it used with about 200mi on it. Got it for a really good price 2000 smackaroos! I still smile when I say how much I paid for it. I take it to KCI because thats the only place in town that does warranty work. As soon as the warranty expires then it going to the motorcycle shop on Austin Hwy, great people and good prices. I purchased my Stella from them and they treated me like family there.
