Heh there folks, brand new to this Vespa/Scooter thing.
P125 X, no electric, no oil mix on it.
Got one that had been sitting in someone’s back garden nearly 2 years now. I was told it was running and a friend called over to have a look. It’s needs a new regulator, this I know.
What I’m wondering tho is this.
I can’t get it to kick over in netural. With the clutch in it will kick over but doesn’t sound like it’s driving much.
I’ve asked two people about it.
First mate thinks it might be a seized clutch. So I’m going to take the wheel off, gunther on and check that out.
Another friend suggested it could be weather seized. Which means dropping oil down plug hole, top up with engine and leave to sit for a few days. Then give it another try turning over in 3rd with a little run at it.
Does anyone have any suggestions comments etc. This is a fairly proper restore job. I want it for work tho ASAP and plan to try all possibilites this weekend, so prompt replies appreciated.
