    This may be statin' the bleeding obvious, but the advice on modernvespa.com (from the guys who KNOW like patrick oopsclunkthud) seems to be that you can force the computer to re-set itself by disconnecting the battery for 15 mins .. the engine management should then re-acquire data, including any changed data from the new pipe ... but you've probably already done that.  Apparrently, this technique works on quite a few (if not all) engine management systems ...

     Your'e on the right track sort of , while diconnecting the battery does clear the computer , when the engine re-starts it does collect up all the revevant signals from the various management sensors on the motor but those signals or values do have to line up with the parameters set in to the computer , these values have some tolerance either way, but if for some reason the motor goes outside those parameters then there will be a problem , i.e if the motor is running lean by way of an air leak in the intake system or if the exhaust has some very radical alteration to its flow/backpressure etc , having said all this i don't think any of the aftermarket power pipes for Vespa's that are available off the shelf would cause any engine management issues.

     PG,

    That exhaust looks good, although why you didn't get the pink option is beyond me. Still, you can always paint it later.

    I have never put a different exhaust on my Scarab, despite being very tempted. I think what has held me back is that I feel I will be following in the footsteps of P-plate drivers who put loud exhausts onto only ordinary cars to convince themselves they are driving Ferrari's. I am sure I'd love a louder pipe, but I don't know, I just can't bring myself to do it.

    Do you reckon there are more ferraris or scarabeo 500s in NSW?  Ordinary? I wouldn't have thought so!

     Adam, sorry, I didn't really mean to imply that the Scarabeo or the Vespa are ordinary vehicles. They most certainly are not! I suspect I would feel the same hesitation if I was on any other two-wheeled or four-wheeled machine. I just find the P-plate mentality -- double the volume to impress the world -- a bit silly and I don't want to follow their lead, so to speak, by raising my own volume hugely. But my feelings are changeable; I might see it all differently in an hour or two!

    Thanks BBonered, Yep. phatVespa has turned out to be a REAL classic. Fast enough to feel speed in your face, nimble through the gridlock, rarely beaten off the lights, able to travel long distances at freeway speed, real fun in the twisties and relentlessly reliable. Happy with the mods and still love riding it nearly 3 years and 46,000ks later. I couldn't live without one. I reckon that buying a quality scoot like the GTS was good bang for buck.
