Pile of Super I think you mean. I continue to screw it up every time I touch it. My latest discovery is that if you put together a motor out of spare parts you can get spark but oil leaks out of the axel if you don't put the seal in. Also that you should check to see if the oil drain plug hole threads are stripped.

The body is up at farm, never finished sandblasting after the neighbor welder patched the floorboards. Got distracted by combining (it was a really big combine) last time I was working on it.

Still having fun with it. Everyone should have a pile of parts to play with.

Here's what I'm doing:

New pipe, a JL KRP4 (Taffspeed Race), that's going in soon. Bought it from scooter-center.com in Germany. Best price and fast delivery. Have to finish it. Gonna spray it in hi-temp clear.

Mikuni TMX 35 mm carb to replace the TM 32

Lower gear ratio to 4.9 : 1

Bought a Diablo Moto fuel tank. Waiting on them to add a small toolbox then ship it out. That has to be painted when I get it. Then it's going in.

Rebuilt the clutch with new plates, welded spider (inner bell), and Barnett springs.

Respray the floorboards.

Jet the carb with baseline jetting... then dyno tune it and dial it in.

Should be fast once it's set up. Engine is a TS1 225 Humiliator.

Is it called that because it's humiliating to be beaten by a smallframe?? j/k
Will it be ready to hit that Wisconsin track at the end of May?

Wait a second, didn't you buy a pretty sweet race bike last year? The one from the pacnorwest? I remember thinking it was pretty nice. What happened to that one? Or are you just tampering with a good thing?

That's possibly the most homoerotic statement I've ever read on a scooter-related board, and that includes jksc.com. Nicely done!

It was a couple of years ago now. I've been meaning to ditch the ScootRS exhaust as soon as I bought the Lambretta, do to the lower performance from my TS1 than I'm used to getting from these engines. I can run a race pipe as it's a street racer that won't carry passengers, and I'm a lightweight.

Later changes will include a Moto Tassinari V Force 8 petal reed block and new MB manifold, a fork rebuild with Taffspeed front springs and MB drum links with welded on damper mounts (for the ScootRS front disc hub) so I can ditch those silly clip on damper mounts. Then much later maybe a PM Tuning dual disc front hub, and rebuild the engine with either an Annihilator top end, or an RB22 cylinder. Or, I might actually run my stage 4a MB tuned TS1. That one is Mark's steel lined conversion with 3 boost ports and Wiseco forged Honda CR250R piston on Rotax con rod, with center plug head and 6 plate clutch. I might use that engine, but I've long ago promised it to another project and I hate to cannabalize it further.

The rest of the changes are to match the exhaust. Painting is only to touch up areas that need it. Later on, I might strip it and do a frame up build, but I'll need the money and time for that.
These are all improvements to the bike that I've been planning since I bought it but only now have a little extra money for parts and time to work on it. I don't know how it will be touring on this bike, but with the drop bars it was never meant to be a touring scooter anyway. Still, I'll try a longish ride or two this summer. One to the Barn Rally, maybe to Chicago, and maybe to the Twin Cities for a visit.

So, this exhaust is now for sale:

Ah, that's right. I was remembering a bertone spot, but couldn't put my finger on the logo that was on it. I don't think I would have remembered Adidas.


I'm obviously focused on the high-performance parts of the bike.

The Bertone spot is here...


Matty, it will wail on smallframes on Wisconsin alphabet roads, but as you know it's 90% riding skills, so you'll still leave me behind.
