Will she fire up?

video

After two long back-to-back days on installing the floor rails, we wanted to see if the bike would fire it. We removed the spark plug and kicked the kick stark and we had spark.

We were a bit eager just to hear her fire up, which she did right away.

The camera I had with me only takes :30 second videos; hence the multiple videos here.

Paul,

It was carb cleaner. Got two miniscule (sp?) squirts. From your response it sounds terrible. Please fill me in.

Dude, NEVER let anyone shoot carb. cleaner into your Vespa. No Little blasts, no big blasts, none. It's terrible for your seals, is a terrific oil remover (from bearings, the cylinder, etc.), and is bad for the gaskets. Have the guy who shot it in killed and dumped in the Schuylkill! :)
