Ok, so I guess I’m going to pass on that Blur! Thought more people would suggest a Genuine. I’ll keep an eye out for a GTS. Thanks.

Yes, it’s a 220i. Seems like it’s in good shape. I haven’t ridden it yet though.

I’m not confident in shopping out of state. Some of the used scooters I’ve checked out in person don’t match up to the ad pictures at all.

I am hoping winter season will be a good time to pick one up.

Thanks for all the unbiased replies. I am leaning towards a bigger scooter than the 170 now. There are two GTS 250’s for sale locally. One for $4,600 and $3,600. Both around 3-4K miles. Also a Blur at $1,400. Maybe that’s the better buy at what, 90% of performance?? I will definitely factor in m...

Hooligan 170 vs Vespa GTS250

Hopefully someone will chime in who has owned both. I sold my Buddy 150 a couple years ago to get a Vespa 150. Worst decision. Vespa was so slow compared to the buddy. I sold the Vespa and now looking for a slightly bigger scooter. Rides around here require I be on roads that exceed 50mph. The 150 c...

Swapping the horn

My horn on my 2008 Buddy 150 does not work very well. There seems to be a second or two delay after I hit the button as well. I am wanting to just change out the horn to a more traditional "beep beep" horn. Years ago, I took out the horn on my Civic. I am wondering if this would fit and wo...

That tire looks to have no siping, which would be crucial for a snow tire. Another thing about riding in snow: Inevitably, you will run into ice. No tire compound will work on ice. You need studs. I've gone down on ice. It happens quick!

What’s this tube sticking out the back?

I noticed this tube sticking out by the rear wheel today. I followed it up and it comes out of the top of the gas tank. Some sort of vent or overflow? Is it supposed o be connected to something? It’s got a clip at the end of it like it is supposed to be hooked onto something. Thanks for any input.

Thank you! I'll try to see if I can put it back on without disassembling the whole thing. By the way, I've got the same scooter--'08 St Tropez. :)

Part ID (carburetor)

Hello, Thanks to all the great info here, I was able to work on my carburetor and get rid of the rough idle issue. Upon putting it back together and tightening the last bolt, I found this piece. It's a rubber boot. Not the one that goes on the throttle cable. Where does it go? And would it be ok to ...
