  9. Brake Pistons

    i used pipe grips on mine pumped the preasure up on the lever to see if thay moved slightly if not split the calliper make sure you dont lose the seal little o ring from the centre of the calliper got the pipe grips on twisted the pistons till thay popped removed the pistons carfully not too damage or score the pistons got 1200 wet and dry sand paper cleand the grime off them replaced them carfull not to damage the seals refiting the pistons you can buy a brake calliper piston fitting kit from machine mart hope this helps
  10. really appreciate this, i cant ride it and its so frustrating :/

  11. Sy250 Noisy Exhaust

    the center box welds crack this is a common fault on the scorpas take it off then have it rewelded i done mine my self having accsess to a allie weld set never had any probs since the packing in the back box will be fine no need to replace it
  12. Back Brake

    lift the back wheel higher than the fluid cup so the caliper is up high this helps to force any air to the top quicker or you can syringe the the fluid in from the bleed nipple biggest syringe you can get with a bit of pipe tight to grip the bleed nipple this also works for bleeding the clutch ican send you one if you cant get one
