To make it fit in a GP type rear light unit is very easy, just silicone glue the LED flat plate into the GP housing where the bulb normally fits, it will then stay put and the silicone with prevent vibrations.

Great item. Fitted this to my GP using the silicone sealant trick as my lens is not an expensive italian one. Fitted perfect. Now my rear light/brake light can be seen in daylight. Some people say its pricey...I'm an electronics design engineer and can say its not. For a little over £20 inc delivery - I couldnt do it cheaper (and I'm not on commission)! I am running it on 12V AC and it works perfectly...everyone should have one!

Very nice piece of kit, only problem is on a GP rear light you have to glue it in. From Mark, sorry about that we are working on a new version for the future.

excellent product (bity pricey), fantastic service


5 star 4. Richard 13 Apr 2010 

Excellent product, cheaper than buying a new Casa lambretta bulbholder.


5 star 5. Graham g 07 Nov 2010 

Great light. Uses less power then original bulb, very bright. One problem for me. I have the Carello, one piece, tail light and because the reflector is curved out, there is not enough room for the LED light without modification. Lots of modification, if you want it to eluminate everything properly. But I was able to make it work with a little two sided tape and a lot 'carefull' shaping. Also had to drill the two small dain holes in the bottom of the housing to a larger size for the wiring if one dosn't want to redo the wire conectors.

I bought one of the GP back lights from MB which has a flat internal instead of the curved one and this fits in superbly with a bit of double sided number plate tape at either end. Tried it out today and cant believe how bright it is just using a AC supply. Fantastic piece of kit. Well done. :)

purchased one of these for my series 3 . thought it was so good i bought another one straight away for my series 2 scoot. It fits very easy on both the series 2 and 3 . with clear no messing wiring instructions included .very bright on back light and super bright on brake light. they work on 12 volt ac or 12 volt dc systems . both of mine are working on 12 volt AC varitronic wiring systems. I was amazed at how bright they are

expected top service and a quality item and thats what i got thanks guys.


5 star 9. Neil 19 May 2011 

FItted my SX rear light without any modification. It is amazingly bright, yet as it is LED it uses next to no power. Now when sitting at lights, touching the brake doesn't make the headlight dim. Another quality item helping drag Lambrettas into the 21st century.


5 star 10. Wings 12 May 2020 

Gotta be the way ahead!! Nice.


5 star 11. Ian R 17 Aug 2011 

Fantastic! Just taken me all of 5 mins to fit one of these to my SX - straight on no probs. Nice bright rear & brake light - & no more dimming of headlight when you touch the brake. Hurry up and get the Series 1 version available please!


5 star 12. Kev B 11 Oct 2011 

Excellent service from MRB - recommend the LED rear light, easy to fit and is much more efficient, the brake light is much easier seen in daylight too.


5 star 13. Lee a 26 Jan 2012 

What a fantastic bit of kit . Well worth the money .


5 star 14. Andy T 28 Jan 2012 

Just fitted this to my '61 S2. 5 minute job, real plug and play. No fettling. Lights are brilliant and the headlight doesnt dim now when you put brake on. Cant fault it.


5 star 15. Hugh R 30 Aug 2015 

Brilliant bit of kit. Ordered from MB on Thursday and arrived next day. Have been using an LED cluster bulb to conserve power to the headlight but the spread of light was poor. 20 quid and 10 minutes work and the rear and brake light are now modern day bright. Outstanding.


5 star 16. Kev W 21 Apr 2013 

Fitted it to my GP and followed your tips using the silicone. Had to alter rear light bracket, but fitted perfect after that and works great!

Very tidy product & a straight replacement for the existing unit on my 1961 series 2. Wires are a good length & the lights are nice & bright.


5 star 27. Lee B 27 May 2016 

Ordered at 3pm Thursday, arrived 10am Friday. Fantastic service and can't fault the product, fitted in under 10 minutes and much brighter than the old back light and also far better quality than the rubbish bulb holder that was there originally. No more spare bulbs in my toolbox!


5 star 28. Richard S 03 Sep 2016 

Easy online selection and order process, great service and very happy with the product. Easy to fit too!

Great product.Fast delivery


5 star 30. Steve W 05 Dec 2016 

Rear LED is very easy to fit, it takes literally a couple of minutes. It is twice as bright as the standard bulb and has also completely stopped the diming of my front light when i brake. In addition to this the problem of my SIP speedo blacking out when i break has now gone. Money well spent as far as i am concerned. My only negative is that my rear number plate is not illuminated as bright as usual, i can live with this for now and will probably find a reason when i have time. Delivery was very quick and overall im pretty chuffed with it. Taa. Steve.


5 star 31. Jeff P 02 Mar 2017 

As described on the tin... Fits out of the box and is a simple plug and play.


5 star 32. Paul B 09 Nov 2017 

Great service from MB as always. Not fitted yet so can't say about brightness etc but that seems covered in the other reviews. Just another quality bit of kit from MB. Keep it up guys


5 star 34. Paul C 27 Mar 2019 

Top dollar service from here! I purchased one which I thought wasn't working & it was replaced immediately. I subsequently found that it was my incompetence that was at fault and not the product. Now fitted within minutes & is a great bit of kit. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!


5 star 35. David J 05 Sep 2019 

good quality


5 star 36. Steve W 06 Sep 2019 

Simple to fit, much brighter than original or LED bulbs. Well worth the price.


5 star 37. Don R 30 Oct 2019 

Fitted and working in 10 minutes. No problem at all, I'm not a mechanic or auto electrician, front light doesn't dip at all when brake light on even on tick over. Can't believe how good it is, quite simply it's a must fit improvement. even My scooter is already running on 12 volt the headlamp was useless when braking. If you buy one of these kits you won't regret it.

Absolutely superb bit of kit, really bright light and brake light, I ended up buying two, for me it's the way forward, I'd recommend this unit to a any lambretta owner.

Received quickly in spite of postal disruption. It was easy to fit to my Indian GP. I just filed a flat on the sharp edges of the plastic reflector and guled it in position with silicone. Result a much improved rear light

Mike s on 27 Mar 2018 asked "Why won't it work in carello housing. They are shaped yes, but the wiring requirements match and if it needs to be trimmed a bit it can. I do not see the reason for the statement please explain cheers"

Jon M on 14 Mar 2018 asked "I am running a varitronic 12 volt AC system. I would like brighter and more efficient tail light. I am nervous about LED's running without a battery. Will the fluctuations in power damage these LED's or board? Is there any type of capacitor or regulator on this board to help minimize flickering and damage? I do have a bgm 12 volt regulator installed currently. Thank you!"

MB Scooters Ltd replied: The Varitronic is a regulated system so it stops the spikes coming through to the LED. So should work perfect and improve your headlight

Paul on 10 Feb 2018 asked "Hi, does this LED board just push into the rear light lens or should it be secured with glue or silicone. Seems a decent fit without glue (Non Carello type light unit) but worried it may vibrate loose. Cheers, Paul"

MB Scooters Ltd replied: This type is clamped by the rear lens, but you could silicone seal it in place
