    You can take the rubber hose off and put it on the carb box. However I wouldn't recommend it on a standard scoot as it will add nowt, if not make it run badly. But if you do fit it you'll need to increase your idle jet by a size

    That's not far off, but no you're looking at a 116 as a starting point. As for the idle you should be just about bang on with a 55/160. This is the standard jetting on a PX200 carb which is pretty convenient as you could do with putting one on in place of your standard 20mm. However IIRC your scoot is premix, so make sure if you get a premix type carb to swap over the throttle pulleys with your old one.

    As they're only a few quid buy a 118, 114 and 115 main jet as well so you have a bit of scope for adjustment either way

    I wouldn't worry about getting a brand new one to be honest. You can pick them up for peanuts second hand (shame is I used to have a few of them before my last spares clear out)

    Anyways that one from buzzsolomoto will still end up costing you nigh on 50 quid once you've bough the correct jets, so I wouldn't bother. This one may be worth a punt if you can be arsed bidding

    Are you riding over to brid with us then Craig?

    Can't you just drill a hole in the standard filter to allow better intake?

    A good point Jake.

    Craig, if you were planning on just banging the kit on without the porting then make a start at 110 on your main with the above idle. Just expect to be underwhelmed with the performance!

    Scooterotica in Ripon would be the best place near you to get it done. It shouldn't cost that much to do and IMO it seems pointless spending money on a kit to do an extra 5mph

    do motec still do porting? i know they did a few years ago when they were a malossi tech centre - not sure if they do anymore though

    i think the upgear kits are more suited for a 210 aswell, i'd check it out first

    Up gear kits are fantastic on the polini kits, they'll turn some of that low down grunt into a nice bit of speed Wink

    They're good lads at mo-tech - I used to live round the corner from the workshop. Would sometimes just pop in for a natter and to look at the scoots when I was bored.

    Have you spoken to scooterotica tho Craig? Bit closer to you than toon

    I'd disagree there - from my experience they've been mint. If you ring them up rather than go through ebay you'll get a better service and its usually a bit cheaper. Plus they'll be able to tell you there and then if they've got stuff in stock.

    Also next day delivery for nowt on a pair of tyres and a few other bits you can't argue there
