Thanks for the input....The last time I had the belt changed was about 4000 miles ago by a guy who restored old Vespas. I was unsure at that time if he knew what he was doing, but he was the only one in the area I could find that would work on it. I don't know if it would take that many miles for the transmission to fail due to improper belt replacement. Anyways, does anyone need any parts from a 2005 X9, excluding the transmission and crankshaft?

Sounds like someone did a poor job of putting it together last time it had a belt change. If the drive shaft is totalled then it is pretty unrepairable, the cranks are not interchangeable as they are matched with the main bearings. Replacement engine the only real option.

I had a local repair shop look at it and they said "Drive pulley and crankshaft ate each other, crankshaft threads gone, outer pulley half/ roller contrast splines gone, drive pulley spacer mushroomed". The sad thing is I drove the bike to the shop because I was hearing a strange noise. After the shops analysis, they said they could not repair it or even put it back together because of the damage and I had to have it towed home where it now sits. Thanks for the response and advice.

If you mean the belts failed it's not a complicated job and any scooter workshop should be able to fix it, there is nothing different about the X9 complared to a 50cc moped, it's just bigger!
Try a smaller independent bike shop rather than main dealers. The only thing to be careful with is that you need the original Mitsuboshi belt for the Evo not any cheaper replacements or the one for the earler SL model. It must be 832738 so try Ebay for these and also log on to Italy or Greece Ebay as they do a lot of X9 stuff.

Hi, I live in Prescott, Arizona and own a 2005 X9 Evo. I have had the transmission fail and need some advise. I have checked the local dealerships and no one will work on Piaggio. I have checked the Phoenix area with the same results. I am wondering if the only option I have is to part it out. I am not a mechanic and do not have the skill to fix it myself. Any advise? Thanks

Thank you Dave, I think I will end up breaking it as the silencer and swing arm are more than I want to spend on it. We’ll have to see, might have a change of heart.

You need the front pipe and the swing arm as well, either the strap type or the three bolt type to match the silencer. Often seen on Ebay as are the Evo silencers.

Good evening all, I hope everyone is well and enjoying the return to some form of normality.

My SL needs a replacement exhaust, I have been looking for them on eBay but can only find Evo ones.
Does anyone know if an Evo is a straight swap or are there any budget ones that will fit.

The bike is not worth a lot so a brand new one is out of the question as I don’t use it often. 3.5 k miles in 9 years.

I think I made a mistake at the first lockdown when due to boredom and not able to get out on any of my bikes I did the X9 up a bit, new piaggio seat cover, new piaggio rear suspension, rebuilt the front forks and fitted new tyres.

Looking back I should have just broke it then. I suppose it kept me entertained for a few evenings.

If I can’t get a sensibly priced Exhaust I will probably break it when the next mot is due.

Take care all.

Kind regards

Rich Bell

To get to the sprag the side cover has to come off with the stator and water pump, then the flywheel has to be extracted. To do this the motor has to be removed from the frame.
