    When you refer 15% “power” increase, do you mean CC as per your example and what is stated on your V5 or do you actually mean power as in Bhp?

    As I understand things it’s 15% of the original capacity, which isn’t a lot of scope.

    Very interesting, I thought I had 3 that won’t legally require an MOT but after reading this regarding “modifications” I think all 3 will need an MOT, thanks

    My 1959 Series 1 has been MOT exempt for a number of years however as it was originally an Li150 but is fitted with a 240TS1 does that mean I’ll now need to start MOTing it again?

    how will this effect registering an imported scooter for a uk reg plate as currently need to be MOT’d on frame . ive got a 65 Winter model an a 64 TV 3 in restoration

    15% increase in power isnt much 1.5 bhp on some models max .

    ive got a GT 240 / GT casing , for my winter if i trundle around on the original 150 CC
    engine then put the 240 in for rallies do need an MOT between each installation .

    im thinking cans of worms stuck in minefields

    has SLUK thought about providing registration assistance /dating certsf mot cert advice as saw a newplace on facebook doing them think advertised in printed scooter press recently seems a nice earner with the amount of imports an resorations going on

    Personally I think it’s the most stupid law to have ever come out. We all ride 40-70 year scooters of which a high percentage have been modified for speed. We then ride all over the UK and Europe a long side every other road user. Why would you not get that second opinion at an MOT to make sure you are safe. I will always invest my £30 in making sure my life is as safe a possible.

    Its a good idea as how many of us have a scooter we dont ride much and 12 months comes around pretty damn quick .Back down to the garage for a pointless MOT when nothings changed from the last test.Maybe the new MOT should be based on millage .If you have covered more than say 3000 miles then a new test is required .That should maybe apply to all old vechicles.

    I’ll keep MOTing my S type 225 as it’s declared on the insurance as such, the 125 special and Lui 50 are bog standard so they can go without MOT’s.
