Registering scooter with cylinder kit

Postby Lusciousthelock » Thu Jun 02, 2016 7:47 am

What's required to legally register my scooter as a 150cc or higher? I know a lot of people wouldn't bother due to increased insurance and road tax (especially as the benefits are not that high) but what if I wanted to tow a trailer or drive on High speed roads in Europe that require a min of 150cc to do so?

You would require an engineers report from an MOT garage mechanic stating size etc. Mot certificate ( if old enough) and then send offvto VOSA

Seems easy enough, but what would that engineer's report need to include? I was just wondering whether cylinder kits fitted from next year will have to comply with the Euro stuff and need some sort of emissions testing which a 2t would never pass?

I found a friendly dealer who did one for me,it has to be be on headed paper,it needs to list the changes that have been made and state that all the engine and frame numbers match,I included photos of the engine numbers and frame numbers,might be worth putting the receipts for the parts in with it to. Most of them go straight through but occasionally they will call one in for inspection.

But, if you've done the work yourself, how can an engineer comment without dismantling and verifying?

Presumably to not declare would invalidate insurance in evnt of a claim?

Thats why you need to find a 'friendly' dealer.

When they examine the engine though, providing the engine number's match to confirm it's the same engine, wouldn't they just read what's written on the cylinder since most have state the engine size on the casting?

Yep,all they check is that all the numbers match.

So, if you'd had it bored out to 150 (assuming that were possible) the friendly engineer would still view it as whatever was cast in as the cc? :?
