Thanks for your reply, at least I am not nuts!!! You knew what I meant at least. My previous vespas would thud , and then thud,thud and so on, on long shut downs to a junction from speed. My lml doesn’t, but if I touch the throttle it responds instantly. Everything seems fine, just my first reed valve so I am confused if still too rich or just the idle jet, or if it is normal. Sounds that it is a reed valve thing, that is closing to conserve fuel when not needed.
any other opinions out their? cheers Roosevelt
