Currently sitting on a stretch of rural highway 10 miles from home.
Why?
Because the tranny on the 350 just took a big steaming crap.
Now I'm waiting for a tow
Fantastic

Oh I thought you lost a tranvestite :eek:

Well that's good - easy fix :) Unfortunately that happens a lot with older bikes little things just go wrong - most of the time it's just that - little things, I often have to do roadside running repairs to get myself going again, you get used to it (and pushing -lol).

I assume you are up & running again? :)

Had to go find the chain but yes up and running. The vespas give me far more trouble than the bikes do.
I don't know many transvestites though...
Rob you are going to be my new go to guy when I get the ipo here. Definitely going to need some scarab advice

Best advice is to get rid of them & replace them with Brembos - Magni do a kit but good luck with getting Giovanni to answer emails!!! I usually call him if I want something - hell I had to fly over there to get my bits as I was getting old waiting. :)

I am lucky I have an (indebted) brother in law who is a brake guy, also did his trade as a fitter & turner and has made all my brakes work, he's made bits, stainless steel pistons, made seals etc but won't do it for anyone else, simply because what he'd charge would be in excess of full replacement! And on top of that something will always go wrong & more dramas.........

Oh I thought you lost a tranvestite :eek:

So did I and the thought of posting some pics of this :eek:nthecan::eek:nthecan::eek:nthecan::eek:nthecan::eek:nthecan::naughty::naughty::naughty::jsm::jsm::jsm::jsm::jsm:
The thought of transvestite pics makes you constipated? :wtf: I must say Julian I am intrigued..... :popcorn:

When you are not from the United States and read " the tranny on the 350 took a big steaming crap" it is really, really funny.

Just buy a F4 Gunnar, and they will come out of the wood works.......:)
Yes that's indeed true Randy - but as you know, we just to send them back to their Brutie compound, they tend get to their balls knotted in their nickers but usually don't put up too much resistance - for the know that the Brutie compound is a place they are comfortable with, a safe place & a happy place. :friday::hump::humpother

I run Regina o-ring chains on my 350s (126-RH) and I don't have any problems - on the 350 Electronica you should allow 25-30mm of play after adjustment when it is sitting on its stand.

If you have a preference for a chain brand, I am certain they can look up the appropriate one to suit - just make sure you check the chain adjustment every 500 miles keep it well lubed but on overly so and you should keep those 'Trannys" at bay ;)

Hope this helps.

Eddie Murphy was busted for soliciting sex from a transvestite in the 80s

I keep forgetting I'm one of the few guys who posts in classics from the states!

:laughing: Dorian - I think some of your slang has filtered down to us via our convict connection, it's very rare that I don't understand a Pom unless of course I don't want to :laughing: Now the Yanks need a little more getting used to ;)

All the best - Rob
