Yes probably is nothing special Bob, I have some tin plate I could cut if necessary. It should be here tomorrow according to tracking but if not I will make something.

Did it need to be the specific heat shield? It would appear to be just heat resistant wadding with a foil jacket, I would have thought you could bye generic and cut to shape? Easyparts seem to have a huge amount of X9 parts still available if compared to Fowlers these days.

They have parts for the the new Beverly 400, I forgot about them, no surprise as I forget most things these days.
Hopefully we will be travelling around more soon, my first away weekend is with the NC700 forum group, I've always wanted to visit the site of the biggest balls up of a military training exercise at Slapton sands, it was classified during WW2.

I'm in the process of doing a bit of refurb on the X9, new brake discs and pads all round and a bleed with fresh fluid, and generally a good clean, although since last done due to Covid it's hardly been used.
I spotted that the heat shield from the back of the fuel tank has gone awol, and sod's law, I binned my spare tank before moving house as I hadn't needed it and probably never would...or so I thought.
Looking on Ebay found nothing other than to buy another tank and most seemed to have the shield missing anyway so I tried Easyparts who I haven't used since 2016 and they are still there and have a good few X9 parts still in stock including the heat shield so I ordered one. No idea of the price, it was in some Euoshite currency but didn't seem too bad.
A few parts are now obsolete, ECU, both front calipers, seat tubs, some body panels, main frame, rear pulley, throttle body, digidash all of which you can get easily used off Ebay. Should get a few more years out of it yet.
MOT on 22nd so time to finish it off and the tester will never see the missing shield if it doesn't arrive in time and the garage is only 100yds away. Now to sort out insurance

Thanks Solo, I was picked up by two luvvly young ladies in a rather rattly albeit newish looking Fiat Ambulance, to go to Clacton in, Aparantly after my exploratary I had been told collection time would be at 1820, two hours after my apointment, when the receptionist ran Hospital Tarnspoirt it turned out the girls were having a no doubt well earned break in a Costa Coffee emporium and would be at the hospital in five, so I got home before dark, nice one.

Another Colonoscapy was ruled out in the interim,due to the consultant advising having the enema at home could induce or put further strain on the old ticker , so I due next to have an Aloscomy(I think its called that) in Colchester followed by on a seperate visit another angiogram, the consultant didnt feel there was anything too amiss however better be safe than sorry.

A mate is calling tomorrow to take me to an East Coast Retros bike/ car show,(out of all the v many clubs Practical Classics visited on the UK mainland, ECR was voted the top one!

PC did use a picture I sent em of yours truly with my old now gawn to new custodian Enfield Bullet,and my old Viva car.
Tomorrow is also an autojumble!

It was due to be last Saturday, however due to Covid(I thought weather as there is a huge playing field outback is all grass and assumed too soggy).
Mark my friend is doing the autojumble, I am not sure whether he is taking his Ford Granada, or his Vauxhall Vectra Estate-normally ECR restrict entry to pre 2000 vehicles.

Last year he and a nice couple from Clacton, who have a Honda Dauville bike,went to the Ace Cafe, as it was the annual Granada get together. Some great cars and bikes and a fab guy I chatted wid, who had a Leader powered dissabled trike affair, perhaps I should get one sans engine and stick the the Motor from the Gilera in it!

I did actually get the Nexus fired up via the key a few times, but guess there is an issue wiring wise, however the pucker solonoid that went to my old address finally caught up with me here.

I find that I am OK for a while off oxygen, albeit I will take two portable bottles tomorrow, but assuming my battle to get a licence back is successfull, am gonna keep and use my Maxi Scoot as at least a local runabout.

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.
