On older Vespas the stator plates tend to be faulty. We have many different economically priced stator plates available from stock. Most of the contact breaker types are no longer produced by PIAGGIO although a few of dubious quality are still available from certain suppliers. This is why we decided to do something to resolve this situation.
The SIP stator plates are assembled by our Austrian wiring loom suppliers who thoroughly measure and test every single stator plate produced before it leaves their workshop. The ignition, light and charging coils used are 100% Italian produced. The condensers and the contact breaker itself are made by EFFE. This extensive attention to detail eliminates bad solder points, intermittent function of the coils or broken wiring on the stators.
The Aluminium base plate that fits Vespa 125VNA-TS/150VBA-Super/180 Rally models is from current BAJAJ production.
Small frame motor stator plates are no longer produced anywhere. We decided to have new base plate castings made. The SIP base plates are available in 5 versions to cover all small frame motors with contact breaker stator plates. The 2 coil stator plates with an internal ignition coil have a 6V-15W lighting coil, while the version with an external ignition coil has 6V-15W or 6V-25W for models with a main beamed headlight. The 3 coil stator plate has along with the charging coil, lighting coils with 6V-10W for the side lights and brake lights and another with 6V-25W for the lights and horn. This small range of stator plates covers all 2&3 coil small frame motors, irrelevant of the confusion over frame numbers and wiring loom anomalies in the many countries where they were sold.
Conclusion: At last an alternative is available to a conversion. An Italian, Austrian and German joint venture.
SIP-TIP: When ordering the stator plate with an external ignition coil do not forget to order one as well. A flywheel remover, piston stopper and degree disc make ignition work a lot easier. Check your wiring loom for defects and repair as necessary.
