Ricalnic,

Hi mate,

The EFL front shock (with the covered spring) of the Vespa PX range WILL fit our LML's. I know that Taffpeeed sell these and they now feature uprated springs giving the shock 70% more stiffness.I had them on my PX and they were brilliant. They made the scooter handle really well and the traction was really great through corners!

I believe that they are around £50 for the front. I wouldn't bother with the rear as the LML one is slightly longer any road.

They are fairly easy to change and if you would like more info on this feel free to contact me.

Laurie

Just passing, and looking at some old posts.

As per Laurie’s comments, that was exactly what I did, got a Taffspeed uprated front spring and added it to the standard shock. This transformed the handling, especially under braking. Shock still fitted 8yrs on
