- Without lever
- With reserve
Over time fuel taps get dirty and can clog up.
This results in your carburetor not receiving enough fuel for proper operation which can lead to serious motor damage, especially while traveling at full throttle. A leaky fuel tap can also have undesirable side effects such as the carburetor overfilling or the scooter being difficult to start.
In both cases replacement offers a quick and easy solution. Vespa models with no fuel level indicators have fuel taps with three positions: to the left ‘C’ (Chiuso, Italian for closed) in the middle its open and on the left ‘R’ (reserve) where about another 25-30km (17-20miles) worth of fuel is available.
Conclusion: Ideal replacement for when the original has seen its better days.
TIP: The fuel tap remover tool is a great help while performing this job, we rent these out and it is highly recommended to use the correct tool. Do not forget new fuel hosing for a professional finish and effective seal.
