Still a few false neutrals here and there but as it's breaking in and getting more loose and me getting more used to it ,,, the shifting is getting close to be second nature,,, altho I have a few gears in my head turning on a floorboard shifter,,, it wouldn't be that hard actually,,, the idea is almost a gimme
Yes adam,,,it's a 4 speed manual shift scooter,,,no cvt,,,it has an traditional transmission with a clutch,,,i love it,,,,just found another one on CL this morning for $1400 with no miles,,,i e-mailed him or her an hour or so ago
Happily nothing but good to report again for the Stella ,, two clutch cables one original another low grade replacement that lasted 3 weeks and another hi quality replacement from beedspeed that's working well,,, and the brake switch that quit on me,,, a little contact cleaner and it's up and running again but have two solid metal replacements waiting In case it decides to take a vacation again,,, next time it will be permanent ,, 2000 miles and the rear tire looks as new,,, next oil change it's pipe and carb time,,, so looking forward to the (claimed) 20% power increase ( we'll see about that one)
Cool ! It took me a while to get used to my Stella 2T's 4 speed tranny as well . Having gone from the Chinese "twist and go" scoots to the Vespa type shifters it was real kick in the pants at first. I can't remember how many wheelies I did when letting the clutch out too fast while revving the engine too high ! Yes , you can pop wheelies on an older Vespa type tranny and clutch setup ! With the 4T's , when you do upgrade the pipe make sure you check and adjust the main and idle jets in the carb. You have to do that on the older 2T's and 2 cycle Vespa carbs ! willc.

I'm changing the carb also Will,, it's 3mm larger and has an accelerator pump and is prejetted for sea level and a couple more sets for altitude,,, I'm using the Tasso carb and pipe instead of the pinasco setup,,, half the weight and less than half the cost and very similar performance gains,,, if it does what the company says power increase wise I'll get a taller trans gear set,,, first is real low and almost useless, it's no rocket anyways so I'll go with a wide ratio set,,, still looking to get a second one and leave it in the crate,,,, or if I'm lucky a 4t with a blown mill for cheap and do what you did and build a nasty a$$ two stroke
If I can find a 2 t cheap I'll go for it if the republic of California doesn't outlaw them by the time i get the damned thing,, and I'll probably make a 220 Will,, as far as final drive I still havnt made up mind
Still no major problems at 3260 miles,,, third oil change,,, the rundown,,, crappy glass tube fuse holder changed to blade style first week of operation,,, original and cheesy a$$ replacement clutch cables blew out at 1500 miles,, hi quality replacement looks as new and headlight bulb lo beam blew out changed with h4 bulb,,, more light which is good because the 15/15 was like a candle,,, tires look great still,,, rear shows little wear front almost looks new,,
