Perking up my Vespa Si.

Dangeresque Too? /

I have a stock Si (Apart from 13.13 carb and a drilled out intake). I want to get a decent 50cc kit (BC moped laws), A decent pipe and probably the polini variator. The area I live is a little hilly, so i'm looking for a setup that'll allow me to climb a little now and then without shitting the bed.

Would appreciate some input as when it comes to kits and pipes I can't tell what will fit for my needs.

Also i can't seem to idle off stand, i'm assuming i need new clutch springs? (I think the clutch shoes don't bounce back after they engage)

Re: Perking up my Vespa Si.

not idling except on the stand means you're compression is bad, you should pull off that cylinder and look at the piston, i bet it's been seized before. get new rings if you wanna keep it 50cc. otherwise, i'd recommend the olympia kit because there's no case matching to do, just bolt it on and upjet.

Thanks Brad! I thought as much. Ps. Update your blog.

It could also be a bad crank seal.
