As for the rear indicators:
The electric connectors of the rear indicators are on the front bottom hook of the side panels and need to be clean blank metal (sandpaper) and put in the hole very tightly - use also some WD-40 contact spray - it's a common issue with the PX

SOURCE: need to replace front mudguard on vespa px 125e

To replace the mudguard is easy enough but takes a good while.
Remove case from the handlebars (mirrors first then screws and split).
Remove the bolt that holds the handle bars to the steering column and remove the handlebars.
At the top of the steering column you need to unscrew the round nuts that tighten the steering column.
You need to disconnect the brake hose and cable (later you will need to bleed and refil the brake fluid).
Then you need to lift the frame up from the front so that the steering column slips out, be careful not to lose the bearings.
The mudguard is held on with (i think) 2 bolts. remove these and then lift the mudguard up the steering column. drop the new one in it's place and put everythiing back together in the reverse order you took them off

SOURCE: electric start on vespa px does not work

Could be a deficient battery, malfunctioning solenoid, starter is burnt, starter switch, or brake light switch, as these are necessary. If your brake light is not working, that's it. I need more information.

SOURCE: i have a vespa px and the electric start wont work

The electric starts are very hit and miss. Probably why they still came fitted with a kickstart. It's more reliable !

My px 125 keeps cutting out.@


Hi, Neil and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
11. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Fuel tank empty.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked, loosen gas cap and go for a test ride.
16. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
17. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
18. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.
19. Petcock clogged or damaged.
20. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.
21. Catastrophic engine failure, perform a compression test.

How to decrease the exhaust sound of Vespa PX150


Hi, Saleh that all depends on your current muffler if it's a stock OEM muffler that is in excellent condition then you would have to seek the advice of a muffler expert to fabricate something for you but if it has rusted holes or has a broken baffle or you have an aftermarket performance muffler installed then a new OEM muffler would quiet down the offending noise..

When applying the brakes on my vespa px the lights go out and the rear brake light doesn't work


That would indicate that you have a short to ground in the circuit, so that when you apply the brakes, you ground the system and the lights cut off. Check all of the wiring carefully, especially at the brake lever and make sure that when you move the lever, no wires are caught or moving.

I have just bought a 1978 Vespa 125 px I can't get leaded petrol what can I use ?


The old PX from 1977-1981 need a 2% 2T Oil mixture in the Petrol or it will be broken in an instant....!
The mix should always be 2% oil = ratio 1:50
for 1 Gallon Petrol = 2,6 oz oil
(1 liter =20ml / for 5 liter =100ml of 2stroke oil)
- you better get an oil measuring jug to be sure -see photo
leaded petrl is not needed

Gears clunk when change on vespa px 125


don't worry -the clunk noise is typical when changing gears on a Vespa 125 PX
- it is due to a very old fashioned construction in the gearbox (1940ies) see pictures:
you have to get used to that or change to a newer automatic type Vespa....
