    PX200

    Finally after many months of looking, I have brought myself a scooter. I found a 2008, first rego Jan 09 Vespa PX200 with 510km on it.
    Picked it up for what i reckon is a very good price. Its black and very nice to sit on. Since i don't have a licence, i woun't be able to do much else, apart from dream. Can't even tell you how it goes, or what it sounds like started...lol
    Hows that for a first review?

    The bike can be seen in the used bike on the Ace Scooters site...

    has anybody got some tips on changing the back rim without tipping it on its side or without having somebody push the front down ? i would like to find a good method to do this by myself that doesnt involve too many tools like car jacks, so if i get stuck on the side of the road somewhere i can change it no worries

     A suitably sized wooden block will work,  but it's much easier if you have a jack..

    Re: PX200

    Hi, In reply to your query regarding changing the rear wheel on a PX without having to lie it down. I had a PX in the UK (just recently got another after moving to Perth), and I used to have a small stand which attached to the scooter engine and could fold upwards when not in use. This stand would lift the rear wheel clear of the floor.

    I have looked around and have seen that these stands are still available from www.sip-scootershop.com for about 40 dollars (not sure about shipping)

    If you go to this site just put the following into the search bar:

    'Mounting stand engine CUPPINI' and this should show you the details.

    i had a blowout last week 1 day after i fitted new whitewalls, fucking accident cunts its your duty to remove glass from the road!!!!

     

    anyway no tools, spare was flat, i didnt bother inflating it when i put the tyres on long story.......

     

     

    basic thing is, remove the side cover, turn fuel off!!!!! i didnt lol i didnt even think, like c'mon what has a fuel tap these days, i never use it.... and anyway turn the fuel to OFF then simply lay your scoot engine side down on some nice grass and job is done in 2 min! then pick it up put the stuff back on it fuel on and wheelie away...

     

    on nice soft lawn no scratches or damage, and easier on the bike than on a rug on a garage floor.... worked very well!

     Brought a Simonini Pipe for the PX200 on the 24th from SIP, so it will be interesting to see how that goes.

    Re: PX200

    I had a simple routine for changing the rear wheel. Remove the spare, and place it on the ground on the left side of the scoot. Take scoot off the stand and lean it over, then use the spare wedged under the saddle to prop the scooter up.

    If you are chanfging wheels, then when the rear one is off, just swap them over.

    Another method is to move the scooter onto the lawn, and lay it on its side there. Can be a problem if the tank is full.
