    Just for your info, my Vespa GTS 300 is in the shop for a new fuel pump.
    It's a known fault, dealer says there is a service bulletin out about it.
    Symptoms are fine running when cold - but when hot the pump shuts down (normally when the scoot has stopped, say for fuel) - then it's fine when cooled down.
    Just in case anyone has similar issues.

    good to know Paul. Good thing you got that sh300 for back up!

    does the 250 have the same issue?

    I'm not completely sure, but i hear that some 250 owners have had the same problem.

    The dealer have kindly loaned me a Gilera Fuoco 500. 3 wheels are very odd.
