Various types of roller bearings are used in the Vespa's engine: Thrust bearings, Tapered roller bearings and needle roller bearings. We refer to them collectively as engine bearings. They all possess minimal friction values and therefore produce little heat, require less lubrication and are virtually maintenance-free. The only thing that can shorten their life-span are contamination, a heavier than average work-load or a lack of adequate lubrication with a suitable oil. The stronger the state of tune or the higher the mileage a motor has achieved, the more frequently the engine bearings require replacement. We recommend engine bearing renewal during every major engine service or 10000 km (6250 mls.)
Most of the engine bearings we have available are original PIAGGIO items and in order to extend the range , we also have most types of bearings available, that we buy directly by the various manufacutrers.
SIP-TIP : Do not forget to order new crankshaft oil seals and gasket set when replacing the bearings of your Vespa's engine. For a quicker and more professional job there are also specialist tools available specifically for this purpose.
If your flywheel can be moved up and down while completely installed it's time, at least, to replace the flywheel side crankshaft bearing. A new crankshaft should never be used in combination with the used, existing bearings.
Riders of the Vespa 160 GS/180 SS/180/200 Rally 1° models can sleep easier in the knowledge that the crankshaft bearing originating in the Vespa T5, also fits their scooter, so helping prevent engine breakdowns due to bearing failure! The PX flywheel side bearings are originally produced by NADELLA. We recommend more precise engine bearings by KOYO (ex-TORRINGTON) with performance enhanced motor set ups. Top of the range and our recommendation: the reinforced SIP flywheel side bearing, high quality, 24 needle pin, one-piece cage.
