I'm always super cautious when removing the banjo on the carb because the carb body will strip out easily. I've done it only once so far.

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

I've never had a grande, but on my bravo and ciao, I angle my banjo so I don't ever have to remove it while taking my carb out.

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

These are good points about the banjo bolt.

I should use a wrench in the future instead of a nut driver.

Look I managed to savage my kit. Hooray

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

+5 points for that, but -12 points for having a ninja pipe in the background. For shame!!!

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

but that dill and tap chart tho!

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

Wait!... I only use it to smash roached that try to get in my candy.

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

We needed this article!

I use needle nose pliers (curved ones work best) to attach and detach the fuel line. I don't mess with the banjo, but use a 8mm open ended wrench over the top of the frame to loosen and tighten the clamp bolt in stead. Of course access varies depending on the frame you have.

Oh ok that's cool then

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

i added a line about having to do Ciao's from the top with an 8mm wrench.

also did you mention the decomp cable, that one always fucks me, i forget it until the engine is hanging there and the cable is jacked.

i'll have to pay close attention when i remove my engine next and make sure that the angle of the dangle is the same on ciao. I think there is a little bit of added fuckery due to the tank being right there and the access holes being smaller, but i'm not positive.

how'd you like to be the engineer working on that stupid thing... design the hole so it just barely makes it out with some scraping.... yeesh.

This happens every time I pull my engine (like three times a week)

Super awesome write-up for the Vespa newbians.

On graham's note: I usually have the engine pointing straight down before I pull it towards me on the drive side.

But I've never had a Bravo/Grande/Si (sighs and tears well)

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

Orchard supply/sears etc has a set of miniature metric wrenches that I can get the 8 mm on the carb intake clamp with the banjo on the carb. So I never need to remove the banjo to separate the carb from the motor.

I also caution using the polini high flow filter and doing multiple on and offs. This filter is in two pieces so as to replace the element but it has a tendency to fall apart at the seam. This was the immediate president to my seize that the techno pipe postings refer to. I strongly recommend the mallosi filter instead because it APPEARS to be better designed.

Cheeta sold me a "floor" that I was hither fore unaware of its existence. This is another plus so as to contain the air filter in the on the carb position and to not cause a search for parts after a tuning run as started happening with the polini filter

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

i miss my ciao so hard...

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

I see that line you added Graham. It fits right in. Thanks for the addition.

I kinda want a Ciao too, cept for those gosh darn 16" wheels.

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

Dirty30 Dillon /

What you talking bout? I got a 17" and 19" wheel ciao!

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

See what I mean? I know not of Ciao.

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

yeah i think the only 16" were grande rear and, hmm, si or something?

the only other vespa i care to own is SI just because they are so damned wackadoo different.

the ciao just has those LINES man, they are so good. Sometimes i just find myself looking at my ciao at the right angle, with the low mount headlight and hobbit forks and thinking, like, damn that looks good.

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

I think some early spoked Ciaos were 16" and I know my imported Ciao PX has 16" 4-spokes.

It really is just a sexy little bike. That's why I have four of them...

Re: Help with removing your Vespa carb and motor

Cheeta my bravo is 16"
