Taylor Tuning Cowling Spacers

When building engines with longer conrods, you need packing plates. This sometimes means that when fitting the cylinder cowling, you can find it doesn’t fit properly and it will under stress, which can lead to them cracking from their connections leading to the air cooling being jeopardised.

Check Your Nuts!

Maintenance and the usual checks are usually essential on a Lambretta. Gearbox oil, cables, tyre tread and air pressure, carburetor, spark plug, petrol flow, filters, connections, the list goes on, but have you ever been complacent when everything seems to be ticking along nicely without a worry? Have you ever got lazy when checking for the simple things like the wheel nuts? I have, a lot. About a week before I was heading to France for my Western Front Run I “dodged a bullet”.

Airhawk Comfort Seat Review

The official wording is Airhawk Comfort Seating System. Some might just say it’s a cushion. Whatever you want to call it, it gets a lot of positive and very little negative feedback. I usually get by ok with the single saddles on my Lambretta, but for longer distances, like a lot of seats it can get uncomfortable.

The SLUK Clip

There’s many things about working on a Lambretta that make us question our sanity. Take fitting a bridge piece, a part of the Lambretta bodywork that’s removed and refitted, a lot. I used to think it would have been easier to dislocate my
fingers to fit it.

Things got easier some years ago when a Bridge Piece Fixing Kit came on the market. A great idea and welcomed by many, but it still meant drilling and riveting a bracket onto the frame.

SLUK have now produced a clip that saves all the bother of drilling and riveting. It’s so simple to use. No drilling, no prep work. Just push it on over the frame strut and that’s it. just sit the bridge piece in situ to make sure the clips are in the right place, move them if necessary and screw the bridge piece on.

The screws and clips are Stainless Steel and they’re very strong. Sticky did a test with a Torque Wrench to see which would give first. The screw or the clip. The screw thread gave way, leaving the clip thread in perfect condition to be used again without fear of getting a screw stuck.

You get 2 clips, 2 screws & two self adhesive rubber washers.

It fits all Series 1, 2 & 3 Models.

SLUK are taking pre-orders Here and will be posting these out on the 1st June.
