A few weeks ago we asked for your scooterist tips and bodges, we’ve got a few to get through over the quieter months. Each one we publish will get the bodger a free SLUK T-shirt.
Feel free to send yours in, we’re looking for roadside fixes to get you home, workshop tips and other useful info that could get a scooter rider out of a sticky spot. You can email them into Editorial@ScooterLab.UK
The following tip came from Marco, it’s good to see scooterist bodgery is alive and kicking across the world, rather than simply being confined to the hard shoulders of the UK.
Hi SLUK, the zip ties are as essential as fuel for a Lambretta. I usually carry some spares with me but the only thing I check every time is oil for the mixture and to make sure I have enough zip ties.
Earlier this year I went out on the TS1 Lammy for the first ride but the new Dell’orto Vhsb36 decided to drop off the carb rubber twice. Zip ties came to the rescue though and gave me a little help to get home.
