    I think my favourite biker term has got to be chromosexual: someone who spends thousands of pounds on every piece of chrome tat they can fit on their bike, yet spend nothing on maintainence in order to gain credibility ... sound familiar? pirat

    We live in a different world now, some people with the realities of life can't afford or don't have the time to look after a classic scoot but still want to be part of the scene Smile

    EDIT: Also, how many auto's are sold compared to the amount of geared scoots nowadays?

    The Stella is just a LML Star badged for the US Market, for the Genuine Scooter Company in Chicago(same company as ScooterWorks).

    See signature for my thoughts on Auto Scooters. Except the LML 200 may be able to sway that opinion...maybe...

    Did LML only produce 125/150 2 strokes, not 200? I cant remember cause I dont really follow lardy wanky bollocks Rolling Eyes

    They have bought out the 125 4stroke already, the 200 soon to follow

    I would HATE to have to fix one of them things !

    The only man I know who can tune a 4stroke is Charley Edmunds. He told me tho theres not much gain and not much point.

    People just tend to put a better exhaust on. Honestly just just does nothing apart from make the engine sound abit deeper

    You can tune em, but there is little gain for the money you spend. I.guess you will know what you can do, mess around with the came so the valves are open longer, increase cc and try and get better through flow.

    4-stroke motors

    The Stella / LML is 4-stroke and manual gearing, not automatic.
