Resistance for Vespa 200 Rally
VSE1T -> 33996, Femsatronic
Condensers or capacitors are a part of your electrical system that do not deserve to be neglected. The condenser operates in parallel to the points breaker circuit so minimizing erosion of the contact point, actuated by rotation of the permanent magnets located in the flywheel and electrical arcing between the separated contact surfaces. A deterioration of the point surface occurs according to total mileage covered during the lifetime of this part. The result of this erosion is a weaker, reddish ignition spark, before it fails completely.
The condensers we stock are produced by the PIAGGIO OE Italian manufacturer EFFE and we can supply them for almost all VESPA models. Differing features include size and shape, the number of cabled connections, capacity and, last but not least, whether they come with a fixing attachment (W.A.) or not fixing attachment (N.A.). The various sizes and capacities can be found listed on our website (www.sip-scootershop.de) according to each VESPA models specific engine number and country it was either produced in or imported to. If the listings in the catalogue prove insufficient please look at our website for more details.
Conclusion: Condensers or capacitors, should be changed regularly and also included in your glove-box for the longer runs.
SIP-TIP: Timely replacement of your condenser saves you money in the long run. If the part you are replacing has been defective for a while, it’s definitely worth replacing your contact breaker unit too!
