I believe it's 15 ft lbs., mine are more like 30 or 35 ft. lbs. I crank them down pretty good on a criss-cross pattern, alittle at a time, with SS split lockwashers under the bolt head.

When I make my own ported piston I drill a 1/2" hole over each upper intake ports, so 2 ports 2 holes. I like mine .150" below the bottom ring.
My 47cc ( 43cc ) 40mm bore Boosted306 Canted modded head stock w/ 3 port has no boost hole in the piston and it works real good.

ooooh. but i saw the pistons they sell with boost ports and they have an oval shape hole? its that any different than just making hole in the side of the piston? i mean am trying to make the biggest hole possible so i can make the piston the lightest i can and also have you ever drilled holes in your crankshaft??? i was wondering if i could do that but am scared that the piston might start rotating in the wrong direction? What you think? and real nice bike,i like that exhaust

I just bought a lightened Cag Flywheel from Hugh at SDscooters, minus 45grams he has 35g also, don't know if it will work, going in my Z1 one ring piston Cag engine. It is hard steel don't know if you can drill it. I am drilling holes in my rod in the middle, and will mod the piston but have not got there yet.

Don't have a photo of a ported piston, lost alot of photos last year when my Laptop died. The oval port is one size fits all 1, 2 or 3 ports. The three ports now have 2 triangle shaped holes.

A boost window is only necessary when your are not case pulsed. I prefer to case pulse and not use the window cause it increases crank case pressure which is good for top end. Here is a pic of a cag motor I cut 3 boost ports in. It sold on ebay about a month ago.

It's better to have one wide 9/16" to 3/4" upper port, I have a 5 port, not much cylinder for the piston to ride on.

I have stock 2 main transfer cylds in 40mm and 44mm, 43 & 49cc. Have 47 & 49cc 2 pcs ported cylds from Boosted306 that have one wide 1/2" or 9/16" intake channel port, and 2 & 3 upper port kit cylds. The 5 port w/ FC crank a good carb & exhaust has better low and mid range, not sure about the top speed, think a 3 port would work better, but I have no tests. Boosted, Sam, and CAM2, will tell you the same thing.

So your saying that its better to have one or two big.ports than having 4 or 5 big.ports? And whats the point of this ports? To get.more fuel into the mix?

The best bang for your buck without diminishing engine life substantially is the 3 port engine........

5 port cylinders deliver nice lowend power but they last the least...This is because the diminished cylinder face the piston rides on aswell as the ring splits interfere with the two outter ports which is succeptable to ring and cylinder damage as the rings wear down and get more flexible........

When I built my 5 port 1pc engine on my 2011 cag I grinded-in the two outter ports to be with-in ring splits........but my 5 port I bought however I wasnt so lucky....The rings are imbedded into the piston on the lefthand side

I was not happy with the pin placement for the rings either on my 5 port, either in or real close to the outer port edges. The older 44mm piston with one Oval port is a better start for modding cause it pins are spaced farther apart and ride all the way up & down the cylinder walls.

I believe that mod is for the piston port engine only w/ the carb mounted to the cyld head. Can't remember if you do it to the reed port piston.
