    The explanation does not make sense. Thermostat has nothing to do with fuel system other than temp control and possibly being on an extra rich map used during start up. Fuel injector would have to be stuck or not properly sealed. Bad sealing rings. Is it coolant in the oil?

    No, it's fuel.

    I'm not trying to explain anything since I don't know and don't care how
    this actually occurs, I'm just re-typing from other forums
    and what I've heard from dozens of Piaggio dealerships here that were
    my business partners and/or some owners. Same thing was happening
    on the piaggio 200cc leader engines.

    I have no idea how fuel ends up in the oil, I'm no mechanic.

    This was a serious issue when the bike first came out in 2003, it's been over 10 years
    since then, and some still have the issue, some don't.

    That's why (here at least) a 460cc BV500 is A LOT cheaper used then 492cc BV500.
    Everyone knows about the issue.

    Close - it's a Suzuki FL 125 Address - but pretty much the same as the Innova !

    80 degrees in Key West this afternoon. It's too early to be sure but I hope winter is done.

    Sunny in Seattle?

    I really need to go back up there for a visit.

    Do you take the Vespa out of town?

    Hello! I am from Brazil and here goes pictures of my scooter SYM CITYCOM (marketed here with DAFRA brand). The images were obtained by cell phone (sorry!). The site is a spillway dam Billings, in the city of Sao Bernardo do Campo.

    Nice pictures Hugo! Looks kind of tropical to me, especially the clouds. It's a huge country - what part were these pictures taken?

    So let's see - Portugese right? Don't need to speak it to get the message to "Jeep driviers and Motorcyclists" "Area not authorized for the use of off road and motocross bikes " Something about a risk of accident, contamination, and explosion in the gas/oil fields?

    Cool!
