Once in yours Smallframe the original SHB has to give way to another carburettor, the question arises shortly before the engine is started for the first time: how do I operate the choke?

How do I convert the carburetor from a folding choke to a cable choke?

How do I connect the cable choke of a Dellorto PHBH, VHST, Mikuni, Keihin PWK or Polini CP carburetor to the choke lever of the Smallframe at?

Many carburetors are usually delivered with a so-called folding or pull choke. So that the carburetor can be operated with a cable pull, as is typical for Vespa, we offer the right adapter set for conversion for many carburetor types.

2599091  Dellorto PHBL, PHBH VHST (Shop)

2599098 Mikuni, Keihin, and Polini CP (Shop)

 

The bgm Pro choke lever is suitable for all carburetor types that are equipped or retrofitted with a cable choke.
Due to the special design of the bgm Pro choke lever, the choke cable can be easily detached in order to remove the carburetor. This saves time and protects your hands in the cramped carburetor room Smallframe. By using a clamping nipple, the choke cable is not kinked every time the choke lever is actuated and is therefore permanently durable and secure against tearing off. Due to the adapted contour of the lever, it can no longer jump out of the choke button guide.

 

The assembly of the bgm Pro choke lever is easy.

 

A YSN30 / Dellorto PHBH (YSN8570) carburetor serves as a model example and for the conversion to a cable choke (Blog)  with the matching cable adapter set (2599091 – (Shop).

The universal cable BGM6445 is used as the choke cable. This already has the right length for the outer shell in a Vespa Smallframe to find space.

Loosen the nut of the small inner choke lever with SW10 and make sure that the screw does not fall out towards the carburettor chamber. When removing the original choke lever, pay attention to the domed washer (3330468W) which lies between the choke lever and the bracket on the frame. This will also be needed again later.

Guide the screw through the retaining plate from below and then attach the spring washer and the choke lever.

The nut has a so-called clamping part to secure against self-loosening. This clamping part can be recognized by the imprints on the wrench flats of the nut. Depending on the design of the nut, this clamping part is on a front side or on the wrench flats.

When putting on the nut, make sure that the clamping part of the nut faces upwards so that the non-clamping part is screwed onto the choke bolt first.

First tighten the nut until the choke lever can still be moved easily.

The inner cable is first fed through the adjusting screw and the adapter, barrel first, and then pushed through the spring. The barrel of the train is hung in the choke piston.

When inserting the choke piston into the carburetor, make sure that the barrel does not jump out of the choke piston mount. The adapter is then screwed to the carburetor.

The clamp nipple is now placed on the loose end of the choke cable and fastened at a distance of 20mm from the shoulder of the end cap.

First thread the inner cable into the slotted guide of the choke lever and then hook the clamping nipple into the choke lever. Use the end cap to pull the outer shell back far enough (the choke in the carburetor is actuated in the process) so that the end cap can be hung in the retaining plate.

If the play in the choke cable is too large, this can be easily adjusted using the adjusting screw on the adapter on the carburettor. A safety clearance of approx. 1.5mm between the shoulder of the end cap and the abutment of the retaining plate on the frame should be maintained so that the cable is not tensioned during compression and the movements of the engine while driving and the choke is not activated.

If the necessary safety play of the cable cannot be achieved via the adapter, the adapter on the carburetor is turned back and the cable adjusted by tightening the clamping nipple.

Finally tighten the nut of the choke lever so that the lever can still be operated easily but the spring force of the spring for the choke piston cannot pull it back again.

ROLLERSHOP Vespa catalog 1987 with red Vespa Primavera 125 and Zirri engine with water cooling

Scooter shop cover Vespa

If you've been driving a scooter for a while, you may still know the scooter shop!

Roller shop sticker

Scooter youth icons

The scooter shop was the scooter shop for us young scooter drivers in the 80s and early 90s. Whether Scooterboy, Popper or Mod: With its catalogs, the scooter shop pulled our pocket money and our first salary out of our pockets. But some of us knew how to defend ourselves: Philipp, for example, always ordered the PK disc brake for 540 DM with every order, so he was always above the postage exemption limit and he was sure of free delivery, but the disc brake was never available until the end .

For many, the catalog was like a Bible. A bright red shone on the cover of the 1989 catalog Smallframe Vespa with water cooling with Zirri engine. The connoisseur may have recognized straight away that the model is a Primavera, but did you know which parts were built in in detail? What performance did they have or what the Vespa looks like from the front?

And did you know that there was a cover Vespa in black as early as 1987? In general, have you ever wondered what of these forgotten ones Dream scooters of our youth has become? The scooter shop as a company did not manage to survive, we took over customer support in 2007 and bought the domain. Vehicles and stocks were spread over the whole republic. Did the cover rollers survive?

Christian and Ronny from the Scoot Devils Seevetal have not forgotten, have found the legendary scooters and carefully restored them!

The Scooter Center The two scooters could be admired for the first time on OpenDay. So of course I used the opportunity and Christian and Ronny got the unbelieveable story let tell. Check out the video now! You can find out below Details about the vehicles and receive more Insights and detailed pictures.

  • And a big thank you to everyone who had to endure us and our madness during the restoration ...
    be it partners, friends, etc.

 

 

What are the next steps?

Do the “partners who had to endure madness” know that there is already a new project? Again the guys go to work for a while Smallframe to revive the German scooter scene:

Scauri tuning

Preview: This is the former vehicle of our friend Mathias Scherer, who beat the red Vespa with a water-cooled Scauri engine on international racetracks and even then scratched the 30 HP mark. Scauri Racing, have you heard this before? Stefano Scauri co-founded BSG Corse, BSG is now BFA and Stefano Scauri now develops cylinders for Parmakit. We keep you here in the Scooter Center Blog up to date.

Kingwelle - A visit to friends

Powerful Vespa engine tuning without a crankshaft from king wave?
Difficult to imagine today, quite normal over ten years ago.

When the SC team sat together in the regular meeting to evaluate new product ideas, the subject of crankshafts and their durability boiled up again. From a technical point of view, a very critical component that is completely undersized in terms of design for the power and torque values ​​realized today.

Our bgm Touring rotary valve crankshafts for the PX have reached a very high level - for serial production - thanks to many improvements that have been incorporated into production (e.g. improved fit on the crank pin, bonding of the same) and can be used without hesitation for touring engines around 25 HP and above .

In our meeting, however, the question of high-end material still remains in the room. What should you take for the diaphragm-controlled motors with 40 HP and more that are now appearing more and more frequently?

Our SC technical director Alex is in constant but loose contact with the two Cramer brothers Christoph and Michael von Kingwelle. A name that has often caused a sensation in the racing scene with its extremely powerful engines and many victories. The contact is established and the guys can also build good crankshafts ...
The SC Technik team is soon invited by the masterminds from Kingwelle to Lindau on the beautiful Lake Constance.
In the most beautiful winter weather we make our way south!

To come to the point: with some encounters you get annoyed very quickly that they did not take place years before.

THE CRAMER BROTHERS AKA KINGWELLE

Christoph and Michael, two absolutely personable and down-to-earth guys, combine hospitality, competence and joie de vivre in a really unique way. The chemistry between the SC team and Kingwelle is right from the start and so we are invited into the sacred halls of Kingwelle production. It is always astonishing how many details have to be considered down to the smallest detail in a supposedly boring component like a crankshaft.
If the end product is to come out on the quality level of a Kingwelle crankshaft, a completely different consideration is required.

 

 

PICTURES FROM THE KINGWAVE MANUFACTURING

We receive an intensive introduction to the entire production process of the king shaft manufacturing. The many complex production steps astonish even us, but also make it clear why the Kingwelle crankshafts have such a good reputation. Impressed by the size and quality of the machine park, the King coupling is spoken of by the way. We will take a closer look at them together with the technology of the Kingwelle in an extra blog post. Here, too, quality is the top priority and the work processes invested are not immediately apparent, but absolutely necessary. Typically Kingwelle.

When Christoph shows us his private workshop, our chin (g) folds down again.

Several Kingwelle / BFA engine cases including Kingwelle 244 ccm cylinder for Vespa Smallframe radiate towards us. In addition, the super successful DBM / Quartermile Sprinter with rotary knife gate valve and snowmobile cylinder (with over 70PS) as well as more of Christoph's and Michael's scooters with, of course, more than powerful engines.
This is also the birthplace of the Kingwelle products. Christoph and Michael always had so much power in their engines that they completely overwhelmed the then commercially available goods. In order to stay on top of the podium, the two began to create their own products, blessed with good knowledge through their jobs in industrial production.
They only have one task; To function and maintain even under the toughest conditions. Their countless trophies and successful engines that are equipped with Kingwelle products are the great result of many years of hard development work.

QUALITY, QUALITY, QUALITY ...

Christoph then also shows us his 'home office', a hydraulic press and associated equipment. In many hours of heavy manual work, the crank webs become a Kingwelle total work of art. As is usual in the 'crankshaft business', it takes experience as well as strength to bring a crankshaft to perfect concentricity with a soft copper hammer. If the terms “hammer” and “crankshaft” in combination sound absurd for many at first - despite all high-tech - this is the only way to go. It takes a lot of experience and skill to bring a crankshaft running with 3 / 100mm to 1 / 100mm. Here, too, you can see how much passion the two brothers put into making their crankshafts. Each shaft is manufactured as if it were for your own motor. There are no exceptions. If something is not 100%, it will be sorted out immediately.
A way of working that creates trust.

GOOD PRODUCTS EVERYWHERE

Somewhat overwhelmed by the depth of production and the many, enormously exciting things Kingwelle tuning equipment, we went over to the cozy part of the evening. We were allowed to enjoy homemade focaccia at Augustiner Bräu Michaels, an absolute dream! It's interesting how many good tuners are also excellent cooks! Whether nozzles or spices, voting is always the be-all and end-all;)

A few schnapps later, we went to our quarters with cool and clean sea air. As city dwellers, we're not used to ...

ATTENTION: ADVERTISING;)

At this point we just have to do some surreptitious advertising. In addition to his normal job and the production of the king shaft parts, Christoph also managed to build an absolute dream house with a view of the lake. Since he is a man of action, he has added something so that you can also go on vacation here (www.tante-idas-fewo.de).

After a more than restful night, the boys insisted on serving us a hearty Bavarian veal sausage breakfast. We were almost moved to tears, this is how it is to live! Thanks again! At least now we realize that we should have visited the boys earlier and at scooter temperatures with our Vespas.

Finally, a joint sight seeing at the 'lake' followed. Living where others go on vacation, that's all you can say about it.

SUMMARY

So one can say, in spite of the short time; 'We came as strangers, we left as friends'. From a technical as well as a human side, we have become absolute Kingwelle fans. With the immense background knowledge imparted, we now have a perfect partner at our side, whom we can trust blindly and whose products we can recommend without reservation to anyone who would like to receive a perfect product for a fair price.

Always true to that Kingwelle motto: "The best is just good enough!"

The excellent Kingwelle products can now be found in our Online Store.

Vespa Primavera 125 ET3 on Ebay

Auction for the flood victims - Piaggio Vespa Primavera 125 ET3 (VMB1T) with TÜV

 

How here already announced: We are also helping and donating, for example, this Vespa 125 ET3, which is now here on Ebay can be auctioned. The entire auction price goes to community foundations of the Volksbank and Kreissparkasse and thus ends up directly with the people who have lost everything.

Update: we are pleased that the price is over 6.500 euros on the first day! Of course, not everyone who wants to help can bid. Therefore we refer to the official donation accounts at the end of the page. It had to be done quickly, help is needed as soon as possible. A raffle is unfortunately not that easy in Germany because you end up in the area of ​​prohibited gambling. Therefore we chose the Auction on Ebay determined.

 

 

Original condition completely revised - all wear parts renewed

We used the last week and completely overhauled the Vespa technically, sometimes 3 employees were working on the ET3 at the same time. The new parts for the overhaul alone cost just under 1.000 euros. The following work has been carried out:

  • Complete engine overhaul
  • Swing arm bearing set fork renewed
  • New tires, rims and tubes
  • Brake shoes
  • Front shock absorbers new
  • New train set
  • A total of almost € 1.000 in parts has been invested in the revision of the technology plus the necessary working time
  • List of parts for the work carried out is attached
  • German papers and fresh MOT until 07/2023

 

Vespa Primavera ET3 (VMB1T)

The Vespa ET3 (VMB1T) is the ultimate evolutionary stage of the Primavera and V50 series. The abbreviation stands for electronica traversi tre, so electronic ignition and three transfer ports. The main focus of the improvements concerns the technology. Visually, it is primarily the lettering, electronic stripes on the front fender and the side panels. The first 1976 models were in the colors Blue Marine, Blue Jeans and Chiaro di Luna metallized Delivered, other colors followed from 1978. The motor has a third overcurrent channel - traverse. The compression ratio was increased from 8,2 to 9,5, which reduced the ignition point from 25 ° to 20 °. The exhaust is strongly reminiscent of that of the SS 50/90 models and is considered the most powerful standard exhaust. The ET3 has over 7 hp at 6.000 rpm and, at 89 km / h, is the fastest 125cc Vespa of its time and, thanks to the built-in electronic ignition, also extremely low-maintenance.

Beautiful patina & matching numbers

The Vespa offered here from 1983 is mostly in the original first paint Blue Marine 275, individual parts in the hatch and the front fender are repainted. Overall, the scooter is in a preservable and with collectors very sought-after original condition. The existing patina contributes to the unique overall condition at.

Technically, the Vespa is also in its complete original condition, but it has been completely revised and all wear parts have been renewed. Frame and engine numbers are matching numbers and begin with VMB1T or VMB1M. Headlights and all other important attachments are original. Only the built-in speedometer is a repro speedometer, as the original Veglia speedometer stopped at 60 km / h. The original speedometer can be revised and is packed in an air cushion in the glove compartment.

A tour of the Vespa is possible by arrangement from Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 18 p.m.

  • Piston running play: 0,07 - 0,08mm
  • Outlet shape: two-part
  • Outlet angle: 194 °
  • Overcurrent angle: 130 °
  • Preignition: 20 °
  • Spindle dimension left crankcase: Ø89,5 x 22,4mm
  • Spindle dimension right crankcase: Ø89,5 x 15,8mm

INTAKE FITTING

The Polini kit contains the complete intake tract, consisting of:

large membrane inlet, intake manifold and connecting rubber. The 6-flap membrane is equipped with 0.4mm thick plate material. The intake manifold is intended for use with a Ø34mm carburetor cross section (carburetor connection width of the rubber is Ø44-45mm). Modifications in the area of ​​the frame cutout for the carburetor may be necessary.

PISTON

The Polini tuning set for Vespa relies on the well-known Asso piston of the Polini Aprilia AF1 kits, like the ones from FALC Racing is used in its 153cc cylinder (we can offer the very high-quality Ø60mm Wössner piston from Overrev very much).

CRANKSHAFT

Any shaft with a stroke of 54mm and a connecting rod length of 105mm can be used as the crankshaft.
The connecting rod length not only benefits the better connecting rod ratio, but also reduces the necessary housing adjustments for the overcurrent channels to a minimum.

SPINDLES

The motor housing must be spindled with a 54mm stroke for the required crankshaft.

CYLINDER HEAD

In addition to the conventional screw connection, the cylinder head is screwed onto the continuous (longer, enclosed) cylinder stud bolts with 4 screws.

 

Recommended accessories / setup:

  • Crankshaft: P2100070 or comparable (54 / 105mm)
  • Exhaust system: P2000416 or similar
  • Ignition: P1710554 or similar
  • Dynamic ignition timing (with ignition P1710554): 4,8mm in front of the upper one
  • Piston dead center at 4500 rpm
  • Spark plug: NGK BR9EG or comparable

CONCLUSION:

Very interesting alternative for normal engine cases to the often unavailable FALC Racing cylinder. If you are looking for performance in the range well above 25PS, you will find it here!

Poini 133 Racing racing cylinder Vespa

Polini 133 racing cylinder available!

This is a classic one Polini racing cylinder for the Vespa Smallframe Models PV / ET3 / PK / XL / XL2 models, except PK automatic.

This tuning cylinder is the revised version of the legendary 133 Polini and offers a plug & play high durability with a lot of torque.

But the cylinder also offers a lot of potential for ambitious tuning of your Vespa beyond the 20PS. If that's not enough: Polini 152 Big Evo cylinder

Poini 133 Racing racing cylinder Vespa

The main innovation of this "racing version" compared to the classic 133 relates to the cylinder head, which is made of cast aluminum with a high silicon content. In addition, the head has additional cooling fins on the underside. This means that the heat is dissipated much better, both from the cylinder itself and from the head. The compression was also slightly adjusted.

The copper seal not only conducts heat better, it also contributes to a significantly better seal between the cylinder and the head.

The layout of the cylinder is unchanged and is determined by the six transfer ports. The ASSO piston is made of die-cast, which gives it very good durability and low weight.

With a 57 mm bore, 51 ccm with a 130 shaft and an impressive 54 cc with a 138 shaft are available.

Racing cylinder of the K5 in the ESC

The cylinder is used unchanged in the ESC (European Scooter Challenge) in the K5 class very successfully in races and has "put" around 15 hp.

We already had this cylinder, extremely revised, with 30 HP on the test bench!

This is the original press release from Polini about the cylinder:

POLINI CYLINDER KIT FOR VESPA 125 PRIMAVERA ET3 WITH NEW CYLINDER HEAD:

RACING GENERATION Polini Motori has revised the popular cylinder kit for the Vespa 125 Primavera ET3. This is now also available as a RACING version with a specially developed cylinder head for better cooling. The cylinder head itself is also available individually. TECHNICAL DATA: The cylinder is made of cast iron with lamellar graphite. As a result, it has a self-lubricating effect and is very resistant to mechanical loads. This reduces the working temperature and prevents possible loss of performance. The cylinder has a 57mm bore and 6 overflow channels. The piston is made of chill cast light metal with a high silicon content and has two “S10” chrome-plated piston rings. The aluminum cylinder head is equipped with two fins, which dissipate the heat better. Cooling and compression ratio are optimized. The new copper seal prevents gas from escaping between the cylinder and cylinder head and facilitates heat exchange.

Paul project

Since 2021 that is Scooter Center official sponsor of the Vespa racing team "Project Paul". On the weekend of July 03rd / 04.07.2021th, XNUMX the team will go to the Scooter Center Cup at the Nürburgring and we keep our fingers crossed for you. We asked Dennis, the team leader from Project Paul, to introduce himself and the team. And Dennis gives us an insight into the genesis of Paul and what is behind the sport.

 

Hello!
My name is Dennis Krawatzki and I am the team manager of "Paul project".

Even as a child, I spent a lot of time on racetracks and loved the atmosphere. My entry into motorized locomotion was a PX 1992 in 80. I quickly noticed that such a Vespa is great for tuning. The PX 80 was the entry level and soon I was taking part in various quartermile races with my Rally 200.

In 2008 I - with Support from Scooter Center - participated in a circuit race, the 4-hour race on the Cologne exhibition grounds, for the first time. Since then I've been infected with the racing bug!

With friends, we already founded our first team in 2009 (DART Racing), with which we were able to successfully complete a number of races.

In 2015 the decision was made to set up their own team. It was clear to me from the start that this team should only be supported by friends. Since my father was not only at my side with words and deeds, but also helped a lot with the construction of the chassis (welding work), I decided to secure a permanent place for him in my team. From now on, the new vehicle was to have its second name: “PAUL”.

“Project Paul”, the resulting team name, started with a Falc Racing rotary valve engine in the first year. Over time, I worked with my friends and companions on optimizations and planned until we decided on an M200 motor and the corresponding setup.

Over the years we have grown into a friendly and familiar group with “Projekt Paul”, and that across national borders. Friends from the Netherlands and France have joined the team. I am delighted by your enthusiasm for this project, the shining eyes of everyone involved (whether they are helpers with the construction, our graphic designer Yoleila or fans with specially made T-shirts at the racetrack) when Paul comes around the corner and it starts again every time again. That encourages me again and again to get better and to further optimize the vehicle. This is an important partner - besides my friends, who are always thinking about the setup Scooter Center, for which I have also been working part-time since the 90s, i.e. producing special parts. Here, too, a long-term friendship has developed between Ulf, Oli and me who now want to support the “Paul Project”.

That fits in with our team spirit: FRIENDSHIP.

My friends as drivers, supporters and fans are there with heart and soul at every race. Whether at the racetrack or online from home, they are excited about every race! And because we would like to (experience) this in the future, we are very happy about the support from Scooter Center and look forward to spending time together. For this, our entire team would like to thank you, the Scooter Center team, from the bottom of their hearts!

BGM6697 bgm PRO IDM CDI

bgm PRO touring CDI for IDM retrofit ignitions

-Original optics in conjunction with a optimized ignition curve for Vespa and Lambretta touring engines-

Our solution for IDM CDIs in touring engines

Use all IDM based ignitions (Vespatronic, Malossi VesPower, Polini IDM, Varitronic, Pinasco Flytech, Parmakit etc.) the same CDI.

The ignition curve of this CDI is based on high performance engines with a late use of power and high speeds designed.
On touring engines, with an early and high torque, this ignition curve is rather counterproductive. Here it often leads to engine jerks in the partial load range due to an ignition point that is too early for the low engine speed.

However, due to the large adjustment range (8 °) of the original CDI, the ignition point must be selected early. Otherwise, the performance in the upper speed range suffers, as the CDI already reduces the ignition point significantly here. We have addressed this problem and a solution developed:

 

Advantages of our bgm PRO CDI for IDM in tour setup

The bgm PRO CDI has a modified, optimized ignition curve. It offers high-torque touring engines that have a similar power / torque curve as an original engine, ideal working conditions. The adjustment of the ignition point is significantly less, the engine runs quieter and smoother and also develops more efficient, especially in the area above the peak performance (Overrev). As a result, you have an engine that much more tour-friendly is and usually something faster Is on the way.

  • Plug & Play
  • for Vespa & Lambretta
  • replaces the original IDM CDI
  • fits on the original mounting brackets from PK & PX
  • Tour-optimized ignition curve
  • no partial load jerking
  • higher performance
  • original optics
  • screw-in ignition cable

More efficient

Performance diagram measurement bgm PRO CDI for IDM ignitions

Power measurement diagram as PDF

Modern technology in a classic look

The technology of the bgm PRO CDI is housed in the vehicle-specific ignition coil housing from the time it was built. This means that the beautiful old look for classic Vespa and Lambretta is retained despite modern technology.
Compared to an original IDM CDI, that is Ignition cable can be screwed in. Ideal if the CDI should be positioned differently or simply the ignition cable should be replaced.

CONCLUSION:

The perfect addition to high-torque tuning motors that are supposed to get even better.

Egig Performance Vespa Tuning

Egig Performance Vespa Tuning Shop

We have many popular Vespa tuning parts in our shop from Egig performance. Here we introduce you to the manufacturer and the highlights in our program.

Erich, aka Egig

Egig, based in the scooter paradise of South Tyrol, was created by Passion for screwing. Egig is driven by the fascination in the combination of the latest 2-stroke technology, packaged in the old tin. Owner Erich, alias Egig, has been screwing things since he was 11 years old (!!) Smallframe Vespa scooters and has perfected this from year to year on its own racing and road scooters and impressively demonstrated it.

The Company Egig performance was created many years later when he noticed that the tuning items available on the market were no longer satisfactory in terms of quality or performance. This has resulted in a fine portfolio High-end Vespa tuning products around the Smallframe. The innovative tuning parts from this Egig product range are continuously perfected, further developed and expanded.

Sport exhaust EGIG PERFORMANCE 'Super Banana Sport' for Vespa Smallframe PV125 / ET3

Sport exhaust EGIG PERFORMANCE 'Super Banana Sport' for Vespa Smallframe PV125 / ET3

The EGIG PERFORMANCE SUPERBANANA Exhaust systems are perfect for inconspicuous but powerful SmallframeEngines. They score with high performance, good drivability and a wide speed range.

The Superbanana from EGIG PERFORMACE is a resonance exhaust, based on the look of a conventional banana exhaust, as already used by Piaggio in the popular SS50 / 90 and ET3 models. The Superbanana is designed to provide powerful engines from 125cc with an exhaust that is inconspicuous both visually and acoustically, but acts on the level of a classic resonance exhaust.

Details about the superbanana

SOUND INSULATION

Inside there is a silencer that reduces the volume to the smallest possible level without causing a loss of performance or heat build-up. The difference in noise development compared to an original or other classic 'banana' is only a few more DB and that with + 50% or more performance increase, depending on the engine type.

FEATURES SUPER BANANA SPORTS

  • For cylinders with a modern layout (e.g. Quattrini, Polini Evo, W-Force, Egig170)
  • One-piece or multi-piece outlets
  • Overcurrent angle: 126 ° -128 °
  • Outlet angle: 185 ° -192 °
  • Pre-discharge angle: 29-32 °
  • Elbow Ø32mm
  • Suitable for luggage compartments
  • Tires up to 3.50 wide
  • Stud spacing 54-62mm *
  • not suitable for Vespa PK (with cutting out of the side plate assembly also possible on PK models)

* If the Superbanana is installed on 54mm, the M8 collar nut with 10mm wrench size enclosed with the exhaust must be used on the inside of the manifold.

The Superbanana exhaust systems are designed as the final expansion stage for fast street engines. You therefore also need the right environment to deliver the appropriate performance. If the engine is still in production (or has been built rather conservatively despite the 133cc cylinder), the exhaust can only intervene to a limited extent. Here we would rather recommend a BGM Touring or BGM Sport Banana, as they can support the engine much better in such an environment.
However, if the conditions are right (cylinder, intake revision, carburetor size, etc.), the Superbanana currently offers the highest performance increase that can be achieved with an inconspicuous exhaust system.

In order to meet different requirements here, there are two different types, the Sport and Touring versions... read more

Racing exhaust -EGIG PERFORMANCE- Mamba - midrange exhaust for powerful road tuning for Vespa Smallframe

Classic resonance exhaust that produces a very nice performance range with high performance and revving in the appropriate environment of a revised engine.

The Mamba racing exhaust from EGIG PERFORMANCE from South Tyrol is a great midrange system that is located between Python and Cobra.

Details about the mamba

The very well processed resonance exhaust system is designed for engines between 100-144ccm.
It works very well on powerful cylinders such as the Quattrini M1L60 or Polini Evo. The exhaust rewards the right control angle of the cylinder with a broad power plateau and a rich torque. Power consumption from approx. 6000 rpm, power peak around 8000 rpm which, however, is kept above 1500 rpm.

2. Remove the split pins and collect the washers

Use suitable pliers to straighten the ends of the two split pins and pull out the split pins. Pay attention to the location of the washers.

The lid can now be easily removed and the original wire mesh, the air filter, becomes visible.

4. W-Lan air filter? Our wireless solution

Simply pull the old wire mesh out of its compartment and clean the air filter box.

Due to aging and vibrations, the original wire air filter has a tendency to break the individual wires. These fragments are then loosely in the air filter box and can be sucked in by the engine.

5. Insert new bgm PRO fleece

After you have cleaned the box well and freed it from the dangerous wire residues, you can now insert the bgm air filter insert into the compartment of the air filter box. Position the fleece in such a way that there is sufficient protrusion for sealing in the direction of the air filter box cover.

When inserting the air filter insert, make sure that the black, coarse part of the filter mat points in the suction direction, i.e. downwards.

bgm PRO Sport seat Vespa sport seat

bgm PRO “Sport” sports bench made by Nisa Italy

We have one based on the very popular Nisa 'Sport 20' bench Sports bench Designed for the classic Vespas in bgm design and had the bench made by the Italian bench manufacturer NISA as a bgm version. The new bgm PRO sports seat is available for Vespa Largeframe and Vespa Smallframe and is available in two versions:

Sports bench with an authentic look

The BGM Pro Sport bench has a beautiful Alfatex cover (embossed waffle pattern) on the sides and back and is also available with gray piping. The seat is also provided with a smooth cover with parallel longitudinal seams. For a waterproof surface, these are embossed, not sewn.
The appearance of the BGM Pro Sport is strongly reminiscent of the classic seat humps of the 70s and conveys a cool race flair even when the vehicle is standing.

Vespa seat configurator

You can also find the bench in the Scooter Center Bench configurator, take a look at the seat on your Vespa model:

Sports bench suitable for everyday use

In everyday practical use, it is very easy to drive despite its sporty look. The bench has a pleasantly dimensioned foam padding on which even long tours are fun. A nice feature is the completely padded hump. This offers a good grip when riding solo, but can also be used as a pillion seat if necessary.

 

 

Modern magnetic closure

Another intelligent feature is the bank's magnetic lock with an extremely powerful neodymium magnet. The bench can be opened easily with one hand, but still holds better than many classic hook fasteners. The greatest advantage of the magnet technology is that the bench rests on the mounting plate, which is supplied and is firmly screwed to the frame. The magnetic force is so high that the ignorant who try to open the bench, assume that the bench is locked.

Top quality - handmade in Italy

The bench frame is made of impact-resistant and durable ABS plastic. The cover is stapled all the way around and is therefore very securely and permanently attached (in contrast to pure gluing as is otherwise usual). The frame is provided with six rubber pads. So the load is distributed very well over the entire frame and the bench gives a very solid and full seating feeling. The bench hinge is typically very solid and solid and therefore very resilient. In addition, it is screwed and can be exchanged (in the highly unlikely event of a defect).

Available for Vespa Smallframe and Largeframe (Largeframe-Models with a high tank (GS160, SS180, Rally180 / 200 require the flat tank of the Sprint / PX models without an oil tank)

CONCLUSION: Nice flat bench with a great racing look but touring qualities!

Note for the LargeframeVersion and Vespa PX
For PX models only suitable for tank versions with a hinged lid.
Not suitable for Lusso models / vehicles with oil tank.

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 Gentleman Giro Markus Mayer with 50cc Vespa and suit

VESPA GENTLEMAN GIRO

Who is behind it?

Markus André Mayer, 44 years old and a passionate Vespa fan from beautiful Allgäu.

Vespa Gentleman Giro Markus Mayer with 50cc Vespa and suit

In 2017 Markus was able to do 3 of his passions (Vespa, charity work and social media) in the Giro Germanica to unite. With the help of Vespa clubs from German-speaking countries, we were able to go on a 42-day donation trip over € 25.000 in donations generated by him for the forest pirate camp of the German Children's Cancer Foundation. Of course it was Scooter Center Part of his Giro Germanica Donation trip and we supported the campaign.

Now Markus has something new to do in which he Scooter Center supported again. It is a matter close to our hearts! This time we are the main sponsor and support and sponsor his new mission extensively.

Here in the Scooter Center Blog we will keep you up to date on this year's mission over the next few months.
We are starting today with the first presentation of the VESPA GENTLEMAN GIRO, look forward to, for example, one soon Interview and a Making of the engine that we build for Markus.

Vespa Gentleman Giro Markus Mayer

 

WHAT IS THE MISSION?

Markus has decided to dedicate the entire year 2021 full-time collecting donations for children with cancer. He starts with the 3 initiatives to raise donations for 40 cancer organizations in 40 European countries:

  • Big European donation trip
  • 10 relay races in different countries
  • 1 world record poker run (Erläuterungen)

For 2021 he is planning a much larger campaign: within 8 months he would like to unite the entire European Vespa scene through a large donation trip around Europe with several linked measures in order for 40 national cancer foundations and care centers at least € 250.000 to be collected. To carry out this heart project, he will need around 14 months in total. About various large travel projects like his

  • 80 days around the world in 2018,
  • USA crossing 2017,
  • or European tour in 2014,

it has already been possible for him to gain a great deal of experience and, above all, a particularly large number of contacts with scooter riders all over the world.

The contacts to the national clubs throughout Europe make it possible to identify suitable donation targets in advance, such as the League contra Cancro in Portugal and to coordinate the planned measures and events in the respective countries. As part of the trip, Markus is planning 3 Guiness Book World Records and thus also to direct the interest of the public and the media to the facilities, clubs and the fundraising campaign.

WHAT'S THE ROUTE?

Vespa Gentleman Giro Europa route

25.000 km through 40 European countries. The specific route will depend on the 200+ clubs that I would like to meet on the way to collect donations.

Even if it doesn't look like it on this map: of course there is a stop at the Scooter Center planned, we will keep you up to date!

WITH WHICH VEHICLE?

“Eleanore” - the Smallframe Vespa. For the tour he uses a Vespa V50N from 1971. It will be the longest 50cc scooter ride ever!
