Hey all,
I am looking into purchasing the Scooterworks kit, with the Pinasco 177 jug, piston, and the Polini exhaust to throw on my '63 VBB 150. I was wondering if anyone had a ballpark as to how many steps up from stock I need to take my jetting? I know that no one out there can tell me exactly, but if I can get into the range, that would be a great help!

Thanks!
Jay

there should be that info with the kit, or the sales rep should have the correct jet size in mind when you order, no sense leaning out that new cylinder waiting for a sieze.

Curious to see how fast you'll go with that.

What kind of exhaust do you have?

Thanks all. Should be interesting, to say the least!
Not going to split the case, yet, but this should pep up the midrange, and give me some more top end. Not that you need that much more on 8" wheels!
Zeno, the kit comes with a Polini PE8 pipe. Should be fun!

I have the Pinasco 177 kit on my 63 VBB, and it's running
very well. I went with the sito plus exhaust(I like the original look).
With a 20 20 carb, you will probably start with a 112 main jet,
better to start a little rich than lean. You may even need to go a little
higher with the Polini exhaust(maybe a 116). I'm using a 110 now with the sito plus, and I'm happy.
They also recommended a B9HS Plug.

It's best to get a few different sizes, and see how they work
for your set up.

For the other jets, PM me and I'll let you know.


Rob

You park in Brooklyn Heights by any chance? I see a 150 just like that all the time (I park next to it on occasion).

I think your scooter looks pretty good, my VBB

Yup. Thats mine! Is yours the dark blue late model Vespa? Or the green KLR 650 thats been next to me lately?

@Rob. I took a picture of this side on purpose!

I wouldn't say that my VBB is a fast scooter(in any way), but
the Kit, and the sito+ make it a very usable scooter. Using a GPS(mounted on mu spare
tire), the scooter hit's 50mph fairly easily(the Speedometer is unreliable at best). Unfortunately,
it does not like big hills. It may be the slowest of all of my scooters, but it ranks up there in the
fun to ride category. I really like the body style of the older Vintage scooters,
with their smooth rounded lines. I also like how the small tires handle on the
curvy roads.

They are fun when you are carving turns.... Just have to watch out for the manhole covers at 50+ mph!

Ha! Actually not me.

I'm the other blue GTS that parks there. White stripes on the legshield and a backrest, no topcase.

Every once in a while all 3 of us are parked there. I'll get a pic next time...

I'm there on trash nights, Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. My grandma's building is probably what you're standing in front of when you took that picture. I grew up on Remsen but live in Carroll Gardens now. But I still take out the trash at my parents and grandmother's buildings every week.
