Vespa GTS Euro 5 tuning

It used to be the case that we were the first to swap the exhaust on the Vespa, and that is still the case today and that is not entirely unjustified!
Personally, I believe that Piaggio has a deal with the tuning manufacturers and therefore always makes the exhaust as ugly as possible. But that's just a personal guess ...

With a new Euro5 GTS, up until now there was no way to get an approved exhaust. But now something is happening: we have 3 exhaust systems on offer for you.

First of all, I have to say what basically applies to approved exhaust systems: it is essentially about optics and sound tuning. Of course, a big change in performance cannot be achieved with these exhaust systems. So you have the choice: just buy the exhaust that you like best - or is currently available or fits your budget ...

To make your choice easier for you, we have pictures in the videos with built-in exhaust systems and the exhaust sound these were provided to us by the manufacturer.

Arrow - already available

Vespa GTS 500

A Vespa GTS 500, that's what many GTS drivers dream of. An Italian engineer has given serious thought to this and visualized a 500 model of the GTS that Youtube Video is very successful. Every year there is speculation in the scene whether Piaggio will bring it this year.

Björn Dressler from Berlin Piaggio has now come first. Björn brings his conversions with his project “La Mutata” up to 44HP and 492ccm legally on the road.

Before you even pull out your wallet: this conversion is not even done!
It takes about 4 months and costs a little more than most people carry around in their wallet: it starts at 15.000 euros.

Marc from Scooteria introduces you to the “La Mutata” project, a converted Vespa GTS 500, in his latest video .

VESPA GTS 300 OIL PAN WITH SIGHT GLASS VESPA GTS BEFORE 2019 WITH FILLER CONNECTOR

Vespa GTS oil pan with sight glass GTS up to 2019 socket fox

 

These are the Jack fox Oil pans with sight glass for the older Vespa GTS models until around 2019, recognizable by the filler neck directly on the oil pan.

For the newer GTS models we also have oil pans with sight glass: Vespa GTS 300 HPE oil pans with sight glass

Vespa GTS oil pan with sight glass GTS up to 2019 socket fox

Never run out of oil again

If you follow the forums, you have probably already noticed one or the other engine failure as a result of a lack of oil.

This practical oil pan is a must for every GTS because it has several advantages. In addition to the spectacular look, the oil pan with sight glass is above all very functional:

  • It enables the oil level to be read off quickly through the oil window
  • With the level of the oil you also have the control whether the engine is horizontal when reading the dipstick, 6mm inclination already make a big difference between MAXIMUM and MINIMAL oil level!
  • In addition to these features, which give you a significant plus in safety, the oil pan is a visual highlight and a bit more individualization on your Vespa GTS!

We get the oil pans directly from Jack foxwho only original Piaggio oil pans used for the renovation. Quality craftsmanship made in Germany!

We can offer you the oil pans in 3 colors:

  • Silver / unpainted like original
  • Black MATT powder-coated
  • GLOSSY black powder coated

TIP:

Compare the oil level on the oil sight glass with the oil level on the dipstick, then you will have a feeling for it and can quickly and reliably read off whether you should refill some more oil.

Optical engine oil check through a sight glass instead of the dipstick!

This eliminates the annoying and sometimes complicated and imprecise checking of the oil level using the dipstick. A simple look at the oil sight glass before every trip and you know whether you can start or, better still, add a sip of oil.
It is also noticeable here how important it is that the Vespa is absolutely horizontal when checking the oil level - 6mm inclination make the difference between MAX and MIN.
With this oil pan you are on the safe side!
Only NEW ORIGINAL PIAGGIO oil pans are used for the production, which are laboriously reworked on the CNC milling machine for the installation of the oil sight glass.

The idea with the castor oil

Castrol was founded by Charles "Cheers" Wakefield under the name "CC Wakefield & Company". In 1899, Wakefield left his job at Vacuum Oil to start his own business selling lubricants for railways and heavy machinery.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Charles developed an interest in two new motorized vehicles: the automobile and the airplane. His company started developing oils for the new engines. These oils had to be thin enough for a cold start and at the same time thick enough to work at high temperatures. The company's researchers found that the addition of Castor oil a vegetable oil made from castor seeds. They called the new product " Castrol ". 1919 used John Alcock and Arthur Brown Castrol oil on the first non-stop transatlantic flight in history.

Heiko's idea with the Castrol sponsorship & fast too slow

CC Wakefield not only invented a new type of motor oil, but also a new way of attracting potential customers to its product: the sponsorship. The name Castrol appeared in flight competitions, car races, and speed record attempts Banners and flags.

Over time, the brand name of the motor oil has become far better known than that of the company's founder / company. This fact led to the renaming of "CC Wakefield & Company" in 1960 castrol ltd

I have been driving Vespa and Lambretta for over 32 years. It all started with a red Vespa PK50S that, bought used, was waiting for my driver's license in my parents' garage. But that was me fast too slow.  The first tuning measure was to mount an expensive 50km / h exhaust. But it didn't do that much, the moped boys were still flying past me to the right and left. So it was sold and I was interested in a black PX 80 Lusso, which was very expensive in insurance at the time. During the test drive, the gears have always been blown out. But I was happy to have my mother ready to buy me this scooter ... also, my father was on a business trip and didn't know anything about the new “80s”. So: now or never! So the scooter was bought with this “little hidden flaw”.

Scootershop, Scootering & Mods, Scooterboys and Scooter Scene

We all know what was wrong with the engine: the reason for the uncontrolled gear changes was the worn “round” gearshift cross. The next Vespa dealer wanted 700 DM for the change, but that was no longer in the budget when I sent my scooter update. I got in contact with other scooter riders.

One of them was still on the skateboard as a skater last week and now suddenly motorized on a brand new Vespa PX 80 Lusso. A month later I met him again, there he was sitting in a suit and polished leather shoes on his Vespa, which was now plastered with mirrors and chrome parts. The next time I met him, half was missing on his scooter and on his head too. Instead of fine leather shoes and a suit, he now wore red boots up to his knees, camouflage pants and a bomber jacket. All that was left of his “popper mane” on his head was a small curl of hair that fluttered listlessly in his face after he took off his helmet. Somewhat irritated, I asked him if he had an accident with the scooter and why he looks so strange. He said he was now a Scooterboy and the scooter was a CutDown!

He had probably discovered her before, she was new to me at the time: the MOTORETTA, the Scootermag and still in black and white. And so the evil took its course. Now the 80s became somehow for me too fast too slow, Schoolmates with DT, RD, MBX & Co and even some mopeds, were faster than me. So if I change the gearshift cross anyway and remove and dismantle the engine, I could make the box a little faster ... In the meantime, I had that too ROLLERSHOP catalog and the SCOOTERING discovered.

The custom paintwork from the glossy magazines fascinated me so much that I sat down in my 80s “children's room” and dreamed of great paintwork and scribbled a few of them on paper. Yes, laugh, these are my collected works:

Castrol sponsorship with the “Castrol Vespa Racer”

Somehow my dreams about custom paintwork didn't come true, so I later took the initiative and asked Castrol to sponsor it. To be honest, I'm a bit uncomfortable right now: I was quite sure that I did it at the age of 16. According to the date of the letter to Castrol, which I found in my “Scooter Scene box”, I was a bit older and already doing community service at the time.

Unfortunately I have the drafts of my "Castrol Racer”With 20 HP and targeted 130-140km / h no longer. I had enclosed the drawings with the letter to Castrol, Motorsport Department. From the letter I found this test print with corrections. But I definitely didn't write to UHU and NUTELLA, MÜHLEN KÖLSCH? Perhaps! I do not know anymore…

But the man from Castrol was very nice, invited me to the IFMA in Cologne and after a short chat in the Castrol truck gave me a few Castrol stickers.

If anyone from Castrol reads this: my offer is still available! This is, for example, my Augsburg Vespa T4:

Vespa GTS animation oil level sight glass

New oil pan with sight glass for VESPA GTS

With this practical oil pan, you always have control over the engine oil in your Vespa engine. Already available for the new HPE / models without a connector for the dipstick and soon also for the older HPE models with an dipstick connector on the oil pan.

I think this part is brilliant - I could have come up with the idea, but Peter von Jack fox had the idea first and implemented it perfectly.

Bushing fox oil sight glass Vespa GTS

Instead of measuring the oil level using the dipstick, all you need to do now is look at the sight glass

  • Do I still have enough oil?
  • I risk ggs with the next trip. a major engine failure?
  • With this modified Piaggio oil pan you are on the safe side!

Because through this simple one Tuning trick for Vespa GTS The annoying, time-consuming and imprecise checking of the oil level using the dipstick is no longer necessary. A quick check before the tour is now done by simply looking at the oil sight glass.

Black or silver?

We offer the oil pans in the following colors, always with us: black anodized sight glasses!

How is the oil level read?

The dipstick does not fall away, it is still there for you to check the oil level. The middle of the sight glass shows you the maximum oil level. The sight glass also functions as a spirit level. To read it, it is best to place your GTS on the stand, make sure it is on a flat surface. According to Peter, whether the engine is warm or cold is irrelevant, it doesn't matter much when it comes to the Vespa oil level!

TIP: Compare the oil level with the oil dipstick the first 2-3 times, this will give you a better feeling for the oil level in the sight glass! With you it could then for example look like this:

NOTE:  The oil lamp on the Vespa is an oil pressure control. In practice this means: when the lamp comes on, the engine is usually already down. (If the oil pressure loss is due to insufficient oil quantity)

 

New original Piaggio oil pan

Only NEW ORIGINAL PIAGGIO oil pans are used for the production, which are laboriously reworked on the CNC milling machine for the installation of the oil sight glass.

What's in the box

  • New, original Piaggio oil pan - CNC milled and provided with a sight glass

We also recommend the oil and the oil filter to change, that's what we have to do practical inspection kits.

Installation instructions

The installation of an oil pan is easy, but you should work cleanly. Here we have information about Vespa GTS oil pan and assembly

 

CONCLUSION: Oil level check for Vespa GTS hpe made easy!

The perfect indicators for your Vespa GTS conversion

We have the popular LED indicators with dynamic running lights from MOTO NOSTRA already introduced to you here. Our partner Cafe Racer 69 also likes to install the turn signals on theirs Vespa GTS conversions. Not without reason, because the tinted indicators offer an exclusive and elegant look. They are in action GTS running light flashers spectacular, they also fit perfectly harmoniously into the design and lines of the Vespa GTS body: see also here in the video!

Easy installation

Now there is Youtube a video, which shows the simple installation of the LED indicators very nicely:

MOTO NOSTRA indicator with dynamic running light for Vespa GTS

The MOTO NOSTRA turn signals have individually controlled LEDs and thus generate a fully dynamic running light, as we know it from vehicles of the luxury class (e.g. Audi A7). The light effect created is very pleasing and offers a pleasant change from conventional indicators. As an additional special feature, the front indicators have a bright white daytime running light strip in a plasma look. The same technology is used as the position light at the rear.

WHY LED? MORE SECURITY THROUGH TECHNOLOGY!

In addition to this wonderful optical upgrade of the scooter and the possibility to individualize your GTS and thus stand out from the crowd, there is another important point that speaks in favor of these great LED indicators:

This new technology increases the optical width of the rear end in the dark, making it easier to see in traffic. The bright LEDs of the turn signals are clearly visible from a long distance. The running light is also optically better captured than with a conventional turn signal.

QUALITY

A particular concern for us was the quality and fit. With the MOTO NOSTRA indicators, both are at a very high level and thus a high-quality alternative to the indicators from Power 1.
In addition, the Moto Nostra indicators are always delivered with connection adapters. There is therefore no need to change the wiring harness!

 

APPROVAL: NO PROBLEMS WITH THE TÜV

Of course, the indicators have a test mark and are approved for use on public roads (no TÜV approval required).
