    ....with a blown motor :rofl

    But hey, cant beat $250! Im thinking the Polini 177cc big bore kit to get it back up and running.

    What can people tell me about this thing? Owner/service manuals? Parts sources? FAQs, etc?

    Also, Ive read the rear case is just a rebranded GIVI? I have the rear case mount bar, its just removed. So if I buy a givi rear case it will pop on?

    I got an '03 and love it! :raabia It handles like a dream and has such smooth power that amazes me it is just a 150. I hope you get yours fixed, and boosting the ccs to 177 sounds very interesting.

    Thats an ok deal. But I think even $250 is pushing it if the motors toast!

    But hey, NEVER look back! But its not really that bad a deal.

    hexnut it is liquid cooled indeed. I believe he is talking about this:

    http://www.scooterpartsplace.com/polini-177cc-cylinder-kit-aprilia-scarabeo.aspx

    DAMN thats expensive as hell! $529+ shipping and handling:eek1! BUT if thats all he needs to get it going, a 177 cc $779 Scarebeo 150 sounds like a sweet deal to me!

    Although it may need more. That kit doesn't appear to include valves/ top end, which very well may be blown. But then again they can be replaced for a decent price. Theres not a lot to these little motors!

    Well good luck and I'm interested in seeing the build!

    I would pull the cam cover and make sure the valve train looks intact before ordering a piston/cylinder kit.
