hi guys, i am quite new to scooters, however I've got a 1963 vbb that am hoping to restore. i have been trying to get some advice on how to convert from 8 to 10 inch wheels. i was told that you could change the swing arm from a super?? and then change the hub to suit. am not to clued up on scooters but was hoping to give this a try. what is the best way of trying this and where is the best place to get the parts and what are all the parts required??? what is the procedure for the back wheel???
vespaskin86: putty it could be a lot of things but from what your saying your doing it rite maybe give the throttle a little twist too, maybe a new plug would help too

putty1974: Hi vespaskins and Henri appreciate this, yeah from cold and had the choke out, had other people say there's a knack to kickstart as well, will change plug and see how that is, failing that a service won't do any harm! Thanks for your help!

vespaskin86: i'd also check your ht lead running from your cdi unit if a new plug isnt making a difference, by taking out your plug reattaching your lead to plug and kicking it over whilst the plug is in contact with metal to see how good of a spark you have

vespaskin86: if its not too clever unnatach the suppressor cap by unscrewing it give the lead a little trim and kick it over see if it improves, if so put it all back together. it out sounds like a poor spark from your plug or lead from what you've stated
