Tooth out and crown being prepared. £360 later and I may still need a dental bridge costing £1500.

The nice bit about all of it is that it hurts too! How many things can you say that about!

i have a 2009 non-running LML that i bought off Gumtree - it seems sound for the most part, if a little sorry looking, and i only bought it for the craic really so if it turns out to be a disaster I won't be too disheartened!

At the moment I have it stripped down and i'm going through the process of cleaning everything up and deciding what needs replacing vs what is salvageable.

I think the starter motor is knackered, so i'm thinking of just ditching it and relying on the kick-start as they are expensive to replace - is there a straightforward way to test the starter motor independently of the scooter?

Cheers! Steve

Apply power to the terminals from a 12 volt battety, if it moves it works
Keep your fingers out of the way tho

Tondy,

Let me know if you need a new one and we can talk. A lot of people round here take them off as "kicking is cooler" so there are a few knocking about.

Cheers,

Leigh.
