Thank you for your input, Gav!

I still haven't had the chance to take apart the engine and measure bore diameter, pin diameter etc. However, I've been looking for a replacement (180cc or larger) and it has proven a wee bit more difficult than I hoped for. For one thing, I haven't seen a new 180cc 4T LC replacement kit anywhere. I did however find this 200cc cylinder kit: https://www.sip-scootershop.com/en/product/cylinder-sip-200-cc_PI843291?q=cylinder%20piaggio%20leader that is being sold for a (sort of) reasonable price.

Has anyone bought anything from this shop? Could someone more experienced take a look at that cylinder kit and see if there are some signs that it wouldn't fit?

Once I actually take apart my engine, I'll try to update this thread as well.

You also posted this on FB and I added a comment to the effect, do not trust hydraulics to stay up for long.

I've had a blitz on the old girl.
Everything back together and time to test. Starting resulted in a smoke screen as the rear brake pipe burst over the exhaust.
Oh deep joy trying to get the old pipe out and a replacement in, but I managed it.
It seemed a lifetime before I finally got action from the lever but I hung in pumping away.
Buttoned everything up again and off we go...No speedo, temp, rev counter. left rear indicator or light. bugger!
I'd put the digi dash connectors in but the single one had slipped down out of sight I'd connected an unused lead.
Putting the original back all is well, with a bit of wire soldering and new bulbs I was illuminated.
Other than the fact my hip won't allow me to get a leg down at a stop preventing me from riding it safely, all that is left to do is fit a replacement lock on the top box and sort the fuel gauge.
Then like Solo's. it can sit in the newly erected shed for 10 years

Excuse my interjection just showing you what a big bore kit involves, albeit this one brand new is for a High Cam Honda, or Chinese copies same, but this was intended for a Hymo trail bike which I sold when I bought a brace of 200 cc ones instead, of course it doesnt fit a 4 valve Leader engine but to give you some idea.

On the piaggio leader engine, the bottom ends are the same. So you can swap the tops 125 / 180 and 200, they can take the 210 kit I belive. But with the 210 kits your pushing the limits of the little engine

I left it on the lift for a week, just forgot about it, came back to it deflated.

But when using it for a day its fine.

Just lesson learned: never leave it up unattended for more than a day

Alright, waiting for the link (:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but does the 125cc model and 180cc model have the same engines (aside from cylinder of course)? Meaning i could purchase a 200cc big bore kit meant for 125 and it would fit my 180.
