    Just saw that on the board. It looks great. What's the cost of the upgrade?

    It's probably going to come out to be ~$140 with tax and shipping. If you're interested, call Bobby fast so he can get it in the next order.

    Just ordered the kit. Do your front signals on the body work? Not the ones hanging from the bars. Mine don't. I wonder if the kit will fix that.

    Nope, my front euro signals don't work either. I actually just attempted to get access to them and found that there weren't any existing wires to connect to them. I'm thinking that they're using the wires to power the US style turn signals. So if I ever get full access to the lights, I'll see about disconnecting the US signals and running the wires down to the euro lights. Bobby said that the Mojito he retrofitted had both the lights working... go figure. The rear euro light kit will not include anything for the front lights according to Bobby.

    BTW, I'm also having Bobby see about ordering the front chrome guard since it appears that it's been discontinued. I just recently got the side guards and love them. I've had them on about a month now and I'm already seeing some rust around the screw heads. Don't know if it's the screws or chrome that's rusting. Thinking of giving all my chrome a rubdown with a thin coat of oil.

    @ Earache...
    I called speed-sports about the chrome pieces...they said they can't get the ones I wanted, unless I buy the whole fender! Oh well, looks like I'll be doing some fabrication with a metal-worker friend of mine. I did ask about the front mud-guard you were looking for though...he said he discontinued carrying them because they didn't fit correctly. He said they had to "really mess with it" to get it on.
    make your left brain suffer...

    Sorry to hear that you can't get the parts for your fender. Kinda expected as much. I'm not sure why Speedsports said it was difficult to install the front guard... it's just 3 screws... you just have to get the alignment right. When I talked with them last, they said Aprilia had discontinued the part. I'll keep looking.

    Chrome, Lights and a Pipe

    I ordered the mud flaps, front shield guard all chrome and Euro turn signals from Dave at Aprilia Ducati of Oceanside (760) 722-7704; 525 S. Coast Hwy Oceanside, CA 92054. They are in but waiting for one last part before I chase them down. Has anyone completed the front turn signal conversion from the drop down(s) under the handle bars to the ones mounted with in the front shield? The boys, Dave in parts, Tim in sales and Bals the owner at Aprilia Ducati of Oceanside have been really helpful.

    Alex at Motorsport Scooters 4225 30th St, San Diego, CA 92104 (619) 291-7611 has told me he would look at trying to configure a pipe for the Mojito 150 Custom. The Third Annual Temecula Wine Country Ride & BBQ is this weekend the 10th of July and hopefully with in the weeks to follow I can post pictures of the the mods. Looking forward to modifying this already stand out in the crowd scooter.

    Great news John. Glad you were able to find your parts. So did you actually find the front chrome guard (see attached pic)?

    I'm going to be tackling the front turn signals next week. Will let you know how it goes.

    Had the front signals removed about 3 weeks ago and connected the wires to the existing european signals. Looks great. Just some holes under the bars where the old signals were.

    Unhappy No and No

    No front mud guard and no tear drop(s) for the rear lights. They had to order the tear drop(s) for the inside and outside to mount the rear turn signals. I went to visit Alex at Motorsport Scooters (4225 30th Street
    San Diego CA 92104 USA 619-280-1718, fax 619-280-1793) as soon as they get the Titanium Pipe they will call me to let me know to bring the Mojito down. I also picked up the service manual so if someone needs information drop me a line, easily scanned and sent. The Mojito gets the most riding time in town but the Vespa GT gets the rallies for now.
