    Wayyyy back in December, when I bought Stella, I bought it from Scooters Originali.

    Gene, the owner, made no mention of the need to pre-mix when running a Malossi kit.

    After 82 miles, I fragged the top end on Stella.

    So, I called Gene and asked for a little help. Nothing free, just to sell me the rebuild parts at dealer cost to help me out a little.

    Promises, promises, promises.

    After 3 months of going round and round with him, I finally gave up and just bought another kit.

    And I know he didn't have to anything at all, I bought the scoot with no warranty.

    But it would have been the right thing to do.

    So in my book?:deal

    He sucks.

    OUCH. :umph

    Yeah, I'd think it would be worth mentioning. :bluduh

    I'm going to drop back 10 yards and punt...and put my stock cylinder and a Sito Plus on my Stella, and see about rehabbing my Pinasco kit so that everything's polished up and ready to mount up next year. Expensive trial-and-error but I think mine is rehabbable. Something's not quite right--I keep soft-seizing mine and I don't think it's jetting so much as an air leak somewhere. Since I'm not riding I've got some down time to tinker with it. :thumb
