I bought a 2012 with 34 miles on it in April. I put a sidecar on it and it now has 2100 trouble free miles in 7 months.

Sooo, after a long summer with the 165 kit, I fimally pulled the engine and dropped in the other stock 200cc 4t, adding a tasso pipe, slider, and Polini 22mm carb. The increase in torque is immediate and dramatic over the 165. Although I am still breaking it in, I can already report that downshifti...

Stator

I had a similar problem with my Buddy which I swore was a fuel issue. This continued for months until the Stator went completely out. After changing that, no problems. As an ex-Harley Mechanic turned scooterist that had never worked with the ignition system scooters use I just couldn't believe the s...

Like vs Buddy

Welcome to Mopedlar. I have a Buddy 125 and a friend was curious about the Like 200. He was wanting a quick comparison of the 2. He will use his scooter as a urban commuter for a 40 mile roundtrip commute on city streets.

Sorry I got distracted on my previous post but there are no need for resistors when using LED's a lights. The resistors are only needed if using them as turn signals with a flasher that is made for regular (incandescent) lighting.[/quote]

but any lamps like this will work.

As for not needed, many things I do to my scooters aren't needed but I just like to "make it mine".

I would install the switch so that some fine upstanding officer of the law can't saw I am blinding someone and can't turn off the lights.

Turn Signal Conversion

Since the Buddy doesn't use it's lower turn signals I decided to install some left over LED's from my Stella LED conversion. So I converted the unused turn signals into "fog lights". I'll install a switch so I can turn them off and on.

According to the HiFlo catalogue the proper filter for a PGO Ligero/Buddy 125/150 is the HF197.

High Output HT Coil Stella 4T

I have seen a few posts about the Orange HT Coil for the Stella 4T from Tasso in the UK. I have found a US shop that carries the coil. I installed it in my Stella and she's running perfectly. Can't say I feel a seat of the pants improvement but I'm sure it is much better than the LML Coil. If you Go...

A cheaper way for Turn Signals

I just changed the flasher and turn signals on my Stella with great results. Total cost on eBay was $24. I'll let everyone know if the parts fail since they are considerably cheaper. The complete install and video of before, flasher only and flasher with LED's is on my website at: http://www.misplac...
