MM went to watch Capri specialist, Paul Bruni, of the Agrati Sales (UK) ltd, St Marks Street, Nottingham strip down the popular 100 cc scooter. No elaborate special tools are needed to carry out the following engine strip, but Agrati recommend that any special extractors that cannot be made up at home be bought, because when removing components that are necessity very tight like the clutch centre or rear hub, extensive damage can occur without the proper tools.

Decarbonising, transmission, clutch and gearbox maintanance and the overhauling of the flywheel magneto can be satisfactorily carried out only when the engine unit has been removed from the frame.
