I'm considering repainting my PX. I have two concerns regarding the job:
1 - I'm thinking about not removing the current paint coats (at least two, as far as I can see) but only polish and repair dents and scratches with a filler.
2- A bigger concern I have, is how to prevent rust reappearing after the paint job, in the connecting area of the floorboard and body. I can polish and remove the rust I see on the surface, but I assume some unreachable rust will be left in. I'm thinking of maybe pouring some rust convertor into the area, from within the body (via where the fuel tank is)
Hi, I was wondering what it would be like putting on the Simonini on my stock cylinder? Anyone tried it?
Im not after power gain (or else I'd reinstall the Pinasco cylinder back on) but just for the looks and for diverting the exhaust fumes to the back of the scooter instead of just under the body, where it goes strait up to my helmet on long red stops.
mmm I actually forgot about the clutch plates sharing the gear box oil, although I doubt that slippage can occur in such a small power engine. As for the oil, I didn't know that there are additives that can attack yellow metals. Ill check my oil type as well, thanks.
Henri, I can't remember the color but I did see an improvised connection when I took off the horn cover. I'll definitely have to check that, starting off by disconnecting it. I also spotted a lonely pink wire not conneted to anything.
check the connections are clean on back of the horn , as thats how power feeds up to the start button . the only battery operated stuff is the horn an starter on a px so am guessing a whiles non-use=dodgy connection. H
Henry thanks, The horn works every time. Allthough I can't see a reason why the horn may have an effect on the starter, should be two separate circuits...
