https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Granary_Wharf is link to the history.

I have decided to put Yellow X9 back on road and strip the Silver X9250SL down for back up parts for the future, right down to the frame, as she is its low mileage good panels but the Cam chain is worn out and need stripping down to replace it, rather than do that, ill use it as a parts bike.

I am Sooo ichrting to get back out on the Yellow X9, my 125 on the ride up to bike cafe is boring so slow and i hit the big hill i get knocked down to 25mph ::

GF loves my X9 and pillion:

It seems that piaggio do list a bolt for the swinging arm, but my 2002 SL has studs which they don’t list, mine was a stepped stud and I had to fit a M12 helicoil as the M10 was too small!!

Invest in a tin of black satin hammerite or similar and give the frame and stands a good coat, wipe down all the wiring with a rag soaked in paraffin and when you reassemble re-clip the wiring neatly with cable ties then before you fit any plastics spray the whole thing (soak it all) in ACF50 or whatever.
If you clean all the alloy bits like the trailing arm then stipple silver hammerite or even aluminium paint the result looks like they did when new, use BBQ paint on the exhausts and after finishing it will look like a new bike.
Can't help with the stuck mounting other than to suggest sawing it off and replace it, as long as you don't damage the mounting points on the frame.

While i slowly ride about on my X9 125, So slow compared to my X9250SL tweaked, i have to sit in the slow lane on the X9 125 and slow down on hills were on my 250 i am flying about hill and over takes with ease, but slowly i am building both x9s both up, even tho i had them up for sale no one was interested in projects, still not found work after i got layed off but once a week i do bit by bit, it wont beat me, the Yellow Tank is almost done but the silver 250SL looks like scrap because the swing arm bolt is fused to the metal someone and engine is stuck in, tryed getting whole swing arm out from frame but its total locked in, tryed blow torch and harmers.

But slowly does it:

My X9 work Bike i use the X9 125SL i use now, Sold the X9 125 EVO:

PS: I should mention the people who have had problems with swelling tanks, disintegrating hoses etc., have done so with the 5%. Hence the problem of not knowing whether a particular petrol pump will include ethanol or not. And it's all very well saying the super is OK to use because it's ethanol free, but it's not suitable for all engines.
