Eh? You must be doing it wrong. I can't see anything about the part where you spill the used oil all over the drive...?

Might be worth lobbing a few ml of Redex or Diptaine or whatever in the tank too.

Hmm, yeah I don't know what it says on the V5 of older cubs that are allegedly not AM class, so can't be sure.

The V5s I have here for larger bikes including a 125 scooter say taxation class: Bicycle so I'd guess that's what it would say if it's not AM.

@Marm Toastsmith sorry I didn’t mean to derail this thread……

@Dave_Q I’ve found the C90 forum I think you mentioned. Looks like the DVLA list any 50cc bike as a moped but then it all depends if the bike has a plate that states 30mph and was registered during those dates shown below.

I’m guessing this bike doesn’t carry the moped plate???

It's a Japanese market bike, so no.

Back on topic: It's definitely running better since I've tinkered with it. Not noticeably smoky any more, and seems quicker. Had the speedo well off the scale earlier, I reckon 40 is achievable. I feel it would do more with longer gearing, too.

Audi wipers seems to be fixed for now. Clip was fiddly to fit due to access and needed minor modification to fit. The instructions on the ebay listing suggested fit to balljoint 1st and then slide the arm under, I didn't manage this but it slid on OK in one go with the wiper assembly already popped together.

Looking at the picture vs the instructions I wonder whether it should be pushed further on but it seems to be holding things in place. If I was keeping the car long term I'd replace the whole linkage but to tell the truth I've fallen out of love with the car, and the Berlingo is more practical anyway.

So, there'll be a for sale ad soon!
