Re: Where do vacum lines go on a 250 scooter vitacci 2018

I just googled "vitacci 250cc vacuum lines" I found many links and videos too.
You may find your information there. I did not find a maintenance manual.
There is contact information on their web pages also.

Re: Where do vacum lines go on a 250 scooter vitacci 2018

How many vacuum lines do you have?
How many openings for them?
Can you provide pictures of them?
We may be able to make a decent guess with that information.

Re: Stupid mistakes and solutions --- New Impressions.

I've been asked more about fit and finish. I'm shorter now, almost 5'10'' and 215 lbs. When I sit on the bike, the seat is comfortable and my knees are not bent tightly. I'd like the grips back just a little farther perhaps a hair higher too. I lean forward 5 to 10 degrees as it is. Its not enough t...

Re: New Here - Need Advice/Guidance

A hand written bill of sale and a previous owner's registration worked for me once, some years ago.

Re: Stupid mistakes and solutions --- New Impressions.

I'm using the on board 110 charger. Its quite usable for most peoples needs.
I've read they can be charged in 2 hours or less now from 30 to 100%
The extra chargers cost thousands.

Tripping today requires carrying some of those extra chargers.

Re: Stupid mistakes and solutions --- New Impressions.

It took a while to get and have a lowering kit installed and the forks lowered about ¼ inch. My feet touch, about half anyway, with the new boots I finally found... I may drop the forks a little more. So: Personal observations after light use. I rode a GS550E before. The DSR is quite different in so...

Re: Obligatory Pic thread (for bikes)

Picked up the bike this afternoon. The kit is in and the forks have been dropped a 1/4 inch too..., an hour and a half's work. This lowered the seat by enough, roughly 1 1/4". I now have just over half of my feet on the ground. Much more comfortable for me. :D Monday will be in the 50's by the forec...

Re: Obligatory Pic thread (for bikes)

I drove an hour and a half for it. Can't wait for the lowering kit to use it.... Too many dips and pot holes strategically placed..... Must wait. :(

Re: Helmet Habits

Thanks for asking........

The Kit showed up and I got the report. If I measured just right there are very few (6) ideal matches. None of them in the stores I checked on line so far... I will spend a day in Albany Friday and plan to check the 4 bike shops I'm aware of for products.

Find the start solenoid that the start button activates. Test it
with a volt ohm meter.

Re: Helmet Habits

I used to go to a local dealer to get a new helmet, always looking for sales. Now, without such a stocking dealer, I need to buy on line. I've tried twice in the last year to try different brand/sizes with no luck. Perhaps I should make a new post. I really want to hear what everyone else is doing. ...
