    Just the usual vespa type quirks. Some scoots tend to chew the speedo drives to fuck. You may be able to sort it by swapping the hub or metal drive in it. Failing that use a (back lit) bicycle speedo Wink


    ... or guess

    I prefer the wet finger in the air method.

    basically all you need to do is go through them speed traps that tell you your speed, then make a mental note of what gear and where your throttle position was 20, 30, 40mph etc. My speedo's been shagged for years, but I can still tell roughly how fast I'm going.
