I want to get my ET4 serviced. Vespa House seems to be the most convenient to get to and from, however a few times it has been there I have noticed new scratches, one of which had been touched up to hide it. I didn't notice it until a week later whilst washing it.
Roberto would be a preference but he is well away from public transport. Does anyone know if he has loan scooters? Melbourne Scooters is next, once again public transport is the problem....dilemma!
Some of our members have been taking their vespas to Melbourne Motorcycle Fairings in Spotswood and have been very happy with the service and care of their vespas. Give them a call you won't regret it.
Hi Julie, yes my ET4 is with them at the moment. Quite a bit to be done, but reasonable charges. Probably wont be at breakfast tomorrow, but I'll be at Maling Road next weekend for sure.
Melbourne Motorcycle Fairings in Spotswood have a collection and return service.
Some of us Geelong folk, for example, have used them and very happy with the service, the collection and return
Roberto ! Great service and can have breakfast and a coffee in the cafe around the front! Will be doing my GTS300 major in another 5,000 klm.
Hi everyone! Thanks to all who gave me recommendations for service. Roberto is a bit far away, so I have gone with Melbourne Motorcycle Fairings. They picked the ET4 up last week and are starting work Monday, so the scooter will be ready for the Maling Road show and shine day next weekend.
Cheers to all...Robert ET4 125.
Can I take a different tack and encourage you to do it yourself? An oil change service is easy, you only need two tools and an oil tray..... Even a belt change is not that difficult. Go on YouTube and look for the scooter west (California) or other videos. If you have trouble ask here and someone will help.
Hi Paul, yes it would be "easy" if I had the right tools, taking the variator apart to replace rollers is a problem if you don't have bolt-on toothed tool to hold it static, or access to a rattle gun.I have looked at "how to" videos, and while competent enough, without the right tools it's not practical.Trained mechanics can also spot potential problems that I may not pick up. Anyway thanks for your suggestion.
Yes the bolt on tool helps, I bought mine second hand on eBay, a Buzzetti (GPS Imports sell them). You don't need a rattle gun well at least I haven't needed one so far. I still enjoy servicing and fixing most things though it's a relief when I take my wife's under warranty car and my Guzzi to the workshop sometimes! See you on a ride, Paul.
