Thanks everyone for the replies! This whole thing has been quite an enlightening experience.

Tomorrow I will make the little Dancer read this whole thread. Thinks he knows everything...

Anyone want to buy a really nice 328is?
Woo-hoo! The GT5 was to be my second scoot. The fit and finish on the Vento is great. Gorgeous wheels, too. My little Zip R3i was a little jewel. I wouldn't hesitate a nanosecond to buy another Vento.



The neat thing about the Triton/GT5 is that the way the floorboard is designed, you've got MUCH more legroom than similiar large-frame scoots--you can hang your feet off the little footrests on the left and right side of the legshield.

That Minarelli is a kickass little motor.

That's the exact one! A sexy little ride, and that little 49cc has a lot more snort than the four strokes I tried. The kid is beside hisself!!

Thanks for the link Photog

I see a plan coming together...
Tell me more about your potential divestiture of the 495.... I am serious

Now....

I bought my wife a Vento ZIP R3i (thanks Dave ). I put the mofo together Tuesday night, and aside from the stupid injector oil level sender leak that was a PITA to fix, she LOVES it.

I rode the KTM 440EXC around the block with her, to the horror of the homeowner's association.

Mine did the same...man, there where oil EVERYWHERE. I ended up using some permatex and it took care of it but only after sopping up a lot of Castrol.

I also used some RTV to seal it. Fun little machine. I look like the circus bear on it when I test rode it, but my wife's small, and it really hauls her around briskly. She always has a big smile when she's riding it around.
