AF 5-speed gearbox replacement selectors are coming

We received the following statement from AF Rayspeed earlier today:

“Today we have received an update from the supplier regarding the new gear selectors for the Clo5e Ratio Gearbox.
“The new selectors are on the way to us, they left the supplier yesterday (Monday) with Fedex, we are hoping for a quick delivery.
“Many of you have already returned your gear selectors, these will be replaced as soon as the new ones arrive.
“Please, if you have not returned your gear selector send it to us and as soon as we receive it we can send out the replacement, please mark the package for the attention of Karen.
“We appreciate the patience that has been shown in relation to this issue, thank you.”

So, if like Andy you have a Clo5e Ratio gearbox loaded into an engine you’ve not yet been able to use, then good news is hopefully just around the corner.
And if you have not yet sent your original selector back to AF, then do so as soon as possible. Their address is:

AF Rayspeed Ltd., Five Acres, East Heslerton, Nr. Malton, North Yorkshire, YO17 8EN.
If you need to know more you can try telephoning 01944 710693, but you may have better luck sending an email to: rayspeedstype@gmail.com

Fingers crossed we’ll be riding them before the end of the summer!

This weekend – the new ScooterNova at the rallies

As the year marches on and the weather improves, so the calendar fills up with more and more scooter events.
We can’t be at them all, but thanks to our friends and stockists, the new ScooterNova magazine will be available from various outlets this weekend, 11-13 May 2018.
First up is the Trojan SC 50th anniversary event in Cumbria, a scooters-only rally that we will be riding up to with as many copies of edition 7 as we can carry, along with some stickers and postcards too. Come and track us down over the weekend, easily identifiable by our red ScooterNova messenger bags.
Meanwhile down in Leicestershire the Vespa Club of Britain will be attending Phoenix Nights 13 and their stall will include not only the brand new edition 7 of ScooterNova, but a few back issues as well for anyone needing to catch up.
Kings Scooter Workshop will also be trading at this event, another ScooterNova magazine stockist, and there is also a good chance young Serena will be out and about there too, promoting ScooterNova, again identifiable by her (blue) ScooterNova messenger bag packed full of magazines!

There is also the JB Tuning Classic Scooter Shop Open Day on Saturday 12 May, down in Essex. Another stockist of ScooterNova magazine, JB Tuning are having a dyno shoot-out, putting on a free BBQ, and offering test rides on their Casa Performance UK SSR265 shop demonstrator.
If you’ve not read about it yet, edition 7 of ScooterNova magazine has a review of the SSR engines as well as talking with two customers about why their buying these motors. The results may surprise you!

Finally, thank you to all who stopped by our stall at Tenby Scooter Rally last weekend to say hello, buy the latest edition and renew their subscriptions. A big hello also to those who we met for the first time, including the many new subscribers. A great rally in a lovely town and wonderful weather to ride home in too (thanks to the Mansfield Monsters SC for carrying our merchandise in their back-up van).
For those who can’t make it out this weekend, you can of course buy ScooterNova magazine online here, or check out our website for details of your nearest stockist.
Whatever you do and wherever you go, ride safe and have fun!
