Hiya Sime, yeah still has a warning light,on previous px's I'd always taken it as off, reserve,on. The graphics on the new bike could be interpreted as that or the pump could just be referring to the tap being for fuel. In all the years of having scoots I've never used the tap on reserve anyway.

Nice one, just been out for an hour,trying to get some miles on the new tyres,45km later still a bit slippy but not sure if that's down to being new or just sh*te tyres, thought they'd be Michelin s83's but they're a brand I've never heard of.. Mitas??

Tell me about it man, worst mistake I ever made,traded in a trusty px I'd got just how I wanted for the emperor's new clothes, 2 years of non starting and random cut outs and I'd had enough. You can put lipstick and a dress on a pig, but at the end of the day it's still bacon.

After a disastrous two year affair with dare I say it, a 4 stroke automatic LML, I'm coming back home, pick up my brand new PX next week and can't wait to have a clutch and a brake pedal again, and that smell! Oh smoke and 2stroke I've really missed you.

Looking at new tyres and with the adverse publicity with Schwalbe, they're off the table, currently running Sava's and hate them, Ran both the sm100's and the SIP performers in the past and found them both ok, what's people's opinions on which are the better tyre of the two to get me through the winter. Cheers

Firstly apologies if you've already read this request before as i've posted it on a couple of other forums too. I Think my front shock has given up the ghost, I'm diving like a german u-boat every time i touch my brakes and the handling is a little erratic, is chucking a new front shock on there a big job? i've changed the back over to a sebac and that was easy enough although a little fiddly under the tank. Is it simply unbolt top and bottom and replace, cause that sounds too easy, also riding a px disc and have heard that a lot of aftermarket mounts don't line up, so should i be looking for a straight swap for a new disc shock or would a sebac fit on a disc ok? Cheers

Work are being a bit arsey at the minute and are making all the employees wear Hi-Vis Vests on site, even though i've got scotchlite strips on my Bike jacket they are insisting i wear an orange Hi-Vis vest over the top of it on the works car parks etc, I can see the safety benefits of wearing it but i hate being told what i have to do, and i'll be funked if i'm walking around advertising for them, so is there anywhere i can get a Hi-Vis Vest with a Vespa or some other type osf Scootering logo on the back? Cheers

I dont think you could add anything to your existing exhaust, you'll need to get a replacement and it all depends on what sort of noise you're after and what budget you have to play with, if you dont like the tinny sound keep away from the simonini pipes, the sito plus will give you a deeper noise but they rust as soon as you take them out of the box. what kind of sound are you looking for?

Hiya Dan, same city mate but different club ;o). The damage doesn't look as bad as i thought it would, you should easily get that repaired for a lot less than that qoute, and i mean a lot less i had a qoute for a mudguard and sidepanel repair and respray for around the £200 mark, I'd seriously think about changing your insurance company though, i had a px knicked last year and this years fully comp is under £200 All the best mate Mark
