I think something blew this afternoon cos they were fine when I left work but riding in slow traffic the engine cut out and then the lights stopped working (headlight and tail). The vespa is running ok but I was wondering if something might have blown when the scoot stopped and that is connected to the lights.
I don't know what to do. What do I do? Is there a simple answer, like tweaking the fuse box? Do i take it to a mechanic? How much will it cost and where do i go in central london?
check youre main fuse and also any earths that are around the lights, follow back the wiring, especialy the earth to see if you can find any problems, sometimes it is a very easy fix that a dealer will charge big for

The indicator lights are working, the petrol light is working, but the headlight/tail and dash lights are not. Would one bulb blowing short the whole thing, or is it something more sinister. As I said when I believe the lights went the vespa cut out and I had to start it up again.
gts300mark: Good afternoon all.

ronnielowe: Jetting sizes...I'm running a Px with a DR 180 kit, a T5 carb and a Simonina exhaust. The main jet "seems" fine at the moment (still running in at 40mph) but going down hill or coming off the throttle it sounds/feels likes she's miss-firing. Any thought??

danmc: I'm currently on the look out for a PX125. My first bike. And was wondering where the best place to pick one up may be other than fleabay, gumtree etc? Cheers guys.

sbwnik: T5 172... Unless you are an absolutely sh*t hot engineer, I'd not even consider trying. Oz (who built the only one) has built very successful racing engines at a much higher level than scooter racing, and destroyed around half a dozen T5 casings

sbwnik: ..into the bargain. It can be done, but you need to be in the top 5% of engine builders and a f**king amazing engineer to do it. Then you'd need to change your gear box to pull that sort of speed...

Upstarts SC: Gomez, start small and work your way up, plenty of plug chops - try a Lockheed if that's a bit lean try a Harrier and lastly go no bigger than a F14 Tomcat.......
