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.

I have an et2 vespa i put a bit of 98 ron fuelin the tank it ran for about 3 kms then konked out now it wont even start


the Vespa ET2 50 has a two-stroke engine which needs an oil mixture in the gasoline. There are 2 (two) tanks under the seat: 1 is for gasoline and the other for 2T-oil.
If you dont't fill that oil tank the engine will run dry after a couple of miles and the bearings in the motor blow up.
Then you need a complete rebuild of the engine which costs a lot.

Vespa et2 always slow


-such strange behaviour very often occurs when the rollers (& belt)in the variator case are worn, they have to be replaced by a dealer.
-they have a lifetime of only 12'500miles (20'000km)
You should change the roll bearings in the variator box not only the belt! -the complete servicekit

My Vespa ET2 will not start when it's off the kickstand. Starts fine when the bike is on the kickstand. Engine cuts out when i push the bike off of the stand.


I'm not familiar with ET2s but I had a similar problem with a Vespa 100 years ago. After hours of messing about i discovered a bolt had fallen and blocked one of the air inlets on the bottom of the frame. Was fine when i kicked it but when my bum was on the saddle it kinda 'sealed' around the tank area and starved the engine of air. As i say, i don't know about new ET2s but sounds kinda similar symptoms.

Vespa et2 clock


there is only 1 fuse on an et2 and if the horn, starter and indicators work, then this iis not the problem.
It is most likely the battery which is at the back of the speedo. to get to this you need to remove the mirrors and screws from the handlebars, split the casing, disconnect the speedo cable and all electric blocks (carefully) and turn the speedo over. there is a little round plug that needs to be removed and the battery is behind it.
I think it is a rechargable battery, so replacing it with a normal battery will only work temporarily.
