It's safe bet that I have a light... Oh and the tools from that post on the big bbs are already taken!

Replacing the stuff you "lost" in Canada? Looks like a good deal.

Hey, thanks. Next time you're rummaging think of me. I'm not in any major hurry, plenty of other things to do for now.

I'm guessing you have (well, had) a ridiculous number of oddball tools and stuff -- I hope the insurance company doesn't give you a hard time about it.

Oh and thanks Egan for that link. I sure wish he had some of the items I actually need (and that would also fit).

I don't have anything to add; I just wanted to make the 2000th post.

I wish I had something to add. I am officially frustrated.

I've been trying to get the wiring thrugh the bendy part of the frame for the last hour and a half and still no go. Are there two holes through that part or just one? I can get the wire puller through, but can't get the wires skinny enough to make it. I've wrapped them tightly in duct tape around the puller in umpteen different configurations, but they still keep getting hung up. I sure wish I had xray vision, that would solve a lot of problems on this project.

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Still can't get the damn bolt holding the rear break cable off either.

BLECH.

I'm all out of swear words, I'm going to sleep (very likely having nightmares about wires).

So do you have the rear brake pedal out yet? With that out it would make your life a whole lot easier. You can put your hand up into the frame and pull the wires right through. The '"bendy"place has some reenforcement there with a little gap at the bottom. I pulled a wiring harness through a small frame on monday in about 10 mins so it is still pretty fresh. Good luck!

Needs some help Lisa? It is mostly a matter of patience and luck. (Lord knows I have had my ass kicked by trying to thread some thing through a vespa frame.) Sometimes it helps if someone else takes a shot at it. Happy to stop by this weekend to see if I can help if you like.

Oh sure, rub it in Stephen. I do have the pedal out, so it seemed like it should be easy. I really thought it would take me 10 minutes too.

I think I feel something soft in there blocking the way. I don't know that I want to know what it is (I don't think it's furry though, so that's a plus). I think it might be a chunk of harness tubing or something. I can't get a good grab on it though. I'm going to use one of my kids to see if they can pull whatever it is out that must be blocking the way.

It sounds like I might be better off without the puller for this task. I might just be making it harder than it is.

Thanks for the offer Jeff, I think I might be able to get it.

My son put is little arm up in there and got the wiring through in minutes. He then followed the wiring diagram and hooked up the horn (yeah, only two wires, but remember he's only nine). Now I could actually put some bits back on to make it look like a scooter again, but he made me promise I won't touch it without him.

when i was doing wiring and cables i thought many times that having the hands and arms of an 8-12 year old would have been a big help.

I'm going to put my boys in the frame later this week so they can hook up the fuel line to the tap.

Nate,

have you considered just leaving one of the twins and a minimal tool set in there for future repairs? You never know when that could come in handy!


Oh and it's not just the hands and arms of a kid you need to work on scoots, sometimes it's the mind as well...

What does he charge? I have some electrical problems on my p210.
