I know very well that feeling...

Your scooter is looking good!


Thanks Mexicano!

and of course...right away somebody asks "hows the new pipe?" and I have to say "I'm not sure?" because I added a bunch of stuff all at once. :)

LOL I know the pipe stick out so far I'm not sure if I will curb ding the header where it's like 3" off the ground or scrape the stinger first doing huge wheelies.

My next thing will be over-range or water cooling. Probably wait till winter either way I'm having too much fun to tear down again unless I break something. :lol:

Nice updates, and I really dig that C16. I wish Yasuni had made them for Hondas.

Thanks SJ -

I guess no Yasuni for Hondas but they definitely have them for Piaggio...would be pretty sweet on a GP1 or something. 8)

And...here's some pics of my CVT cover venting.

Image

Image

Just a couple small holes to let some air flow through. I see on here there are hybrid ceramic bearings available for the inside support. Might be a good idea...there's no lubrication for it at all.

Image

Image

Can't wait till my side stand comes in. She fell over at a fuel stop yesterday and almost fell over again today. Can be a challenge finding suitably sturdy things to lean on.

If you really want to cool down your tranny, try a "front scoop" like this, look at pages 10 & 11:

That's definitely a Racing or High End scoop! I don't think I need that much ventilation. It's usually cool up here, even in the summer. I live right on the coast. I might enlarge the holes a bit but I might have other plans for that area behind the front wheel. :)

shame you couldn't ship teh Dio back to the USA but you could've done what we Filipinos were doing for many years now, disassemble the scooter & put it all inside a box & ship it to the USA by sea cargo, way cheaper than air freight but the waiting period is around 30 to 45days. declare the scooter as spare parts to get around customs. when it gets there just put it back together again. this is how we get our aerox & other exotic italian scooters in teh Philippines.

Ya if I had it to do over again I'd have paid the $600 for DHL to send it home. Even though I'm an asian kid I don't worship the giant Honda "H" it's more of a sentimental thing with the Dio because it was fun in a place where fun was highly valued.

I wouldn't mind slow boat shipping a Dio from Japan or maybe an Aerox from UK but it's still very expensive I think. I'm pretty happy with the Malaguti these days.

I'm still a nOOb tuner but not nearly as clueless as a I was when I started. I've done everything myself and learned TONS (mostly from here) and I don't have a pile invested.

Definitely thanks to the gurus here - I really appreciate the help and my scooter is starting to show the knowledge I've absorbed!!


And...on to the next round of parts :)

Image

A SIP t-shirt, Buzzetti side stand, shock riser, flywheel puller, jets, a complete Minarelli oil seal set and crank end hardware for spares.

Image

These are my ebay Koso mirrors, I think they look good.

Image

Image

The side stand gives a sporty lean when parking, as advertised, and also prevents falling over.

Image

Image

Stage6 SportPro + Yasuni C16 + 17.5 dellorto gets 2 thumbs up. I'd get more with a bigger carb but don't really need it. She's a pretty sporty ride at high speeds.

Also thumbs up to Malossi X-special belt until further notice on it's durability. Same with the inexpensive RMS rollers, the plastic part is much thinner than I have seen with other rollers but they work great so far.

Not sure what to do next....

I'd like to cut out the vent looking areas on the back of the rear plastics and put colored wire mesh there. Maybe somebody with plastic / bodywork knowledge has a good adhesive available at Home Depot or Autozone that would hold mesh to plastic very securely?

Could also use a wash obviously...and still need to mount my tach somewhere...

So rode around quite a bit this weekend, here's some pics from the Eastern Promenade in Portland.

Image

Image

Image

And...a comfy bench with a view for a break.

Image

Still jetted very fat on hot days but afraid to lean it back down for cold nights...and still thinking about where to mount the tach, busy riding you know.

Maybe somebody with plastic / bodywork knowledge has a good adhesive available at Home Depot or Autozone that would hold mesh to plastic very securely? 3M's 5200 is the strongest adhesive I know of. You can buy it in toothpaste type tubes, or a caulk type tube. It comes in black/white/brown. Anything it touches will have it on there fore-ever. It also stays flex-able so it will NEVER crack or dry out.

Thanks Tim, the mirrors are decent looking and were inexpensive. I also found them to be fairly durable when I was rocking no stand and she fell over. :)

I also have a set of nice Acerbis handguards but I'm not sure how or if I really want to mount them. I think the bar fairing keeps it looking like a scooter and I like my gauges. MX or DH mtn bike bars are sweet though...we shall see.

I've used that stuff before for marine applications but didn't even think of it. Now I just need to visit the scrapyard and find some mesh on an old furnace or something. Hopefully it won't look completely ghetto because that stuff is permanent. :lol:

Here's some more pictures...

Image

I was trying to get the Aegis destroyer they are building in the background but it didn't come out. Maybe I can get some from the other side of the river next time.

Image

I use a Samsung Omnia as my camera (phone) and I'm not fully tuned on the settings...some of my pictures look like crap (night) other times it's great.

Image

Image

Image

Found a completely EMPTY 5 level parking garage for wheelie practice on Sundays.

Image

Image

Image

Here's a closeup of the fit/finish on the "Carbon" mirrors.

Image

Image

Still eyeballing those rear vent areas, but did get my tach mounted enough for now. Have run over 12,000rpm briefly but the 17.5mm carb is out of lungs up there. I definitely have power to pull taller gearing though.
