Save your $$$$ and get an affordable water cooled bike, B1 replica or similar for around $450. Will totaly blow an air cooled bike to the weeds and the older type engines ( B1, B2 39cc water cooled) very reliable.

I spent alot of time and money on my air cooled bikes in the past, its a great learning curve but after I got into water cooled I never looked back.

Timing keys give small increase in power, do that, carb, air filter, gearing, race clutch springs, pipe, reeds........ or just buy a B1 replica and be faster straight out of the box.:beer:

Yeah well I'm finishing off assembly of bike today, fitted performance head+ported piston (up from 40cc to 50cc)and expansion pipe and it starts!

It's ment to give an increase of 30%ish so we'l see how it goes. (once Ive fitted rebuilt brakes and weather clears up)

I'l have to have a ride of your b1 Aero at the next race meet to compare!

Considering a new poliini is roughly 10x the price (correct me if Im wrong) of my chinese piece, I hope not for your sake!

I'm not to sure if i'll be at the next race me now. I just got back from the Rotorua hospital. I have a bad infection in my left knee. They might need to operate. We'll see how it goes.

I guess riding the non-docile r1 up to auckland could be sore on the ol knee.

Boobs, yes my g/f's but you cant have those. :)

My bike goes SO much better now with the piston head kit, + expansion pipe.
Heaps less vibration now cuz I put rubber washers inbetween the newly fabricated exhaust mount and engine. Replaced the rear brake cable, and rebuilt caliper assembly.

Just running the standard reeds at the moment, but want to find out more about which ones to get.
