Vespa silent block
Hand on heart - do you ever have that on your Vespa Replaced silent blocks? Unfortunately, this is usually neglected even with complete restorations.
After many, faithfully completed kilometers, it sometimes happens that when you look at the most beautiful rear part in the world you notice that something is wrong here.
If the rear wheel is tilted slightly to the side when viewed from the rear in the direction of travel, then you have vibration, also called silent blocks, put their prime behind them in the motor housing.
Why silent rubbers?
The silent rubbers do not have an easy task: they are supposed to be uncomfortable vibrations Eliminate the drive train swing arm and at the same time for a predictable and safe leadership of the rear wheel. Because the silent rubber on the right-hand side also has to carry a large part of the mass of the engine, this side is subject to greater stress and is therefore also subject to greater wear.
This problem should be solved with a fresh set of silicone rubbers - do you think ...
Beware of the "OEM quality"
In the meantime, let's call them “other” suppliers have apparently found their way into the Piaggo bag.
The original silent rubbers are sometimes so soft that the engine is tilted back in the frame due to its own weight. This condition does not improve under a load, i.e. with the driver. Due to worn or too soft silent blocks, brisk Vesps sometimes also tend to oscillate significantly in the longitudinal axis even at higher speeds.
The solution: load-optimized silent blocks
So we have the bgm PRO silent blocks Equipped with a somewhat tougher rubber and the more heavily loaded engine side has also been chosen one step tighter.
The firmer, right-hand side thus stands in the way of the motor's own life and the increased load, and ensures that the drive train swing arm is guided safely.
The bgm PRO silent blocks for Vespa engines are therefore color coded:
- GREEN is the somewhat firmer silent rubber for the right side in the direction of travel
- RED is the silent block for the left side.
Simple assembly of the silent blocks
We decided on the two-part solution for the design of the silent blocks.
