hello. this is my scooter. gilera runner vx with a couple modifications on engine.
engine is a factory 125cc.
on engine are: malossi camshaft + malossi springs + tuned head (extended and polished channels)
200cc OEM
carburetor from older model vxr (walbro 33)
modified transmission and polini secondary drive (gearbox)
open exhaust system
scooter is went very well, engine is turned on 11000rpm and then the crankshaft is broken
here is a one video and some pictures when the scooter was in one piece

YouTube- Runner VX - 145kmh







so i decide to put a new engine, master 500 with electronic injection

a lot of time i asked a 500 engine with complete electrical instalation when i found a little crashed x9 500 from 2004 year. scooter was complete so I bought it.

original vx vs. new made vs. original x9 500

A lot of thought seems to be going in to this. Nice to see that you are reinforcing everything and not just slamming on a big engine.

I'm curious about the results in power and driveability. Good luck!

i'm not into 4strokes but project is really nice. i cannot wait to see the results when its finished. how do you think it will go when done and what will the h.p. be. also can you tell me the measurements of that 500cc radiator.

if it's the new 500cc engine it will give about 40hp at the rearwheel.
but be carefull if you're gonna take the engine apart, some parts cannot be installed without special piaggio tools, and the torques of variator and cilinder are extremely important.
I have worked a few times on these engines, so if you need specific questions
i can answer them proberbly.

Good luck en drive fast:W
