    Hi Andy and welcome
    Where you from pal ?

    It doesnt technically need a fuel lever to pass an Mot. but have one fitted because you need to be able to furn your fuel off.
    If you saying your clutch is loose I presume you mean the cable which wont be helpful at all because it will no doubt stall easily at some point

    welcome to the forum,

    please give us some insight to where your from, how you got into scootering,

    maybe show us a pic of your pk50 you have purchased, and also when your legal to ride it given it says your 15 atm

    and who are these other mates your going to be riding with? are they into classic scoots? or are they on chavmobiles?

    because if they are under 25 and into scoots like us then invite them on here Wink

    cheers

    Even if they ride "chavmobiles" but like vespas and lambretta, or have an interest in rallies etc etc invite them here also.

    Yes but we've had this before on the forum, too much stereotyping... Give the guy a chance before you start making assumptions about his mates

    im not making any assumptions, some poor lad turned up to our scooter club once thinking it was a group of 16 year olds on peds, he didn't know what the scooter scene was etc, after we explained he soon sort of left a bit red faced, he was a bit confused on what vespas and lambrettas were, to which he was like, oh i wondered why there were those old things outside
