Bel-Ray Oil update!
I found out, that the new Bel-Ray SI-7 is made with a thinner
My Lambretta has been running choppy, and harder to kick-start
lately. I checked the sparkplug,
and found that my motor was running lean. I was told, at a
motorcycle shop, the new
Bel-Ray SI-7 in the gray bottle to the left, was the same
oil, just to find out it was a
new formula mix, made for modern scooters now.
I now use
Bel-Ray 2T. The
oil bottle on the right.
I been using Bel-Ray 2T for a
week now, testing it out.
My sparkplug burn is back too normal, and the motor runs great,
and starts better.
I highly suggest, you stop
using the new gray bottle oil on the left.
If you have the old Bel-Ray
SI-7 in the white bottle,
thats the good oil to use.

Thanks for the note.(a) Do you recommend
draining out the SI-7 and replacing with 2T; or
should it be okay to mix them? I just bought another bottle
of Si7 two weeks ago. (b)The Vespa runs
great; when I don't let the gas get too low or
forget to turn off the fuel valve. I did a group ride Sunday
and it ran great.
email caught me off guard. Dans scooter is a P200,
with oil injection. One of the guys
working at (Bates Discount Cycle) did say, the new SI7 oil
was made thinner to work better
with oil injection system.
(B). My best suggest for vintage Vespas with oil injection
___Check your sparkplug first,
and see if its running lean. If its not lean,
___and the scooter is running
great, you should be okay.
___NOTE: I dont trust any
new oils. It took me years to find the right oil type,
________ that works good with
vintage scooters, and the way we ride them.
(A). When I made the oil change, I didnt drain the gas.
just mixed it right in, when my fuel got low.
