Hey party people, just picked up a '12 Stella with 48 miles. I've been a vespa guy for a while, decided to try the Stella out. I came here from modernvespa.com

I replaced the fluids and battery today and started her up. Took a few tries to keep it running but she sounds smooth. Took her for a spin and noticed the bars are turned a couple inches to the right while I'm rolling straight. Does anyone know how to adjust the alignment at home? I'm trying to avoid the shops if possible. Thanks!

There's the 'old fashioned' hold the wheel steady and yank the bars meathod...
I'm not much more help than that, sorry.

Ask the question over on the N-S-M side of MV, Stellas are so much like the old 'P' series there should be lots of help for you over there.

Look at the bottom of the headset, there's a hole with a large bolt inside it. Loosen that and adjust away. The P-Series has the easiest handlebar adjustment there is.

Don't loosen it too much. Just enough to move the headset.
