howdy, have you tried a dealer? it's possible that even if he doesn't stock that, he'll have a parts scoot you can either have the plug or use it as a sample to find something at lowes or a parts house that will work.
howdy, here's just siliness. i wear the reflective gear so that if i should become "road debris" i can be readily seen and avoided.
my bv piaggio seems to have fairly good headlight though i need to adjust it some as it doesn't do well on low beam. i leave it on high beam and have no-one complain and it works ok doing that in country driving.
howdy, i have a friend that has the bv250 and he also had a problem with the plug wire which left him stranded. i had also on the 35o a problem with the plug wire and it caused the check engine light to come on till it was fixed. i don't know what year bv you have, but it may have the electronic engine management that is able to store error codes and could be checked out at the nearest dealer. any vespa dealer could do it as well.
howdy leo, i think that is perfect and i'm pleased fer ya. remember though what i suggested about the seat. that little piece in between the passenger and rider section of the seat can be removed and may give ya a little more room to move around. most cycle shops have plastic rivet things that are about as big around as a nickle and you can use those to plug the three holes left after that piece is removed..
howdy bk, i don't know your particular scoot but for turning OFF the turnsignal on all the scoots i've had , one simply pushes IN on the switch rather than trying to slide it to the middle. push directly toward the bar and it should cancel. you may have to piddle with it a little till you get familiar with the action on your particular scoot.
howdy, and that's the same i do for my car as well. just set the odometer back to 000 each time i fill up, then run 300 miles or so and fill again. it gets about 30 mpg so at 300 it takes slightly less than 10 gal. 14 gallon tank so i have about 100 mile range left at 300 miles. i do that on all my scoots as well--150 miles on the 350 gets about 2.5 gal out of 3.5 total---range left about 50 miles.---nevernever trust the guage though i look at it as the tank goes down and can predict whether i'm getting better than average fuel mileage at that point. it gives my puny brain something to do as i'm traveling. i was in a rain storm yesterday and didn't need anything extra to keep the brain busy through the fog---c'mon now it was fog on the visor.

howdy, i'll just chime in that my position in the lane and following distance, etc is all adjusted in order to best be seen in the particular traffic situation i'm in at that time. visibility is everything but pro-active agressiveness , if you will take my description, will save your life at least once.

howdy, i can't tell from the pic's but one advantage might be less tupperware to remove for certain servicing. but if they could make one with a shaft drive instead of belt-----so far the belt seems to be a major weakness of these twist and go scooters.
i have to admit, they look better to this old time trained eye.
