"25yr old on a GTS250 market value $3100 (bit low) living in the city - RACV $580 fully comp with $500 excess. A bit dearer than Famous but they insist on it being garaged all the time..... We can moan about the high cost but try it in Canada…"

"Several possibilities Paul.  The first two that come to my mind would be whether the belt is a genuine Piaggio O.E.M. one or is there another mechanical problem causing the wear."

Hi Paul,  sure. Just let me know when your heading down this way. If I’m not home I can always leave it on my front porch - will be safe there.  You still happy with $100? Or if you’re handy I purchased a new screen, like Noel’s and if you could put it on for me you can have the seat. Talk with Noel first if you like to see if it is difficult or any tricks for taking off the old screen and putting on new one. Just a thought. You can call me on 0447987357. Pam
