You are absolutely right. A well prepped reed motor is a superior machine.Bulldawg racing said:quote
"Reed valve engines CAN be better, but there are more factors than that.
For example, this piston skirt engine:
will destroy the reed engine of similar displacement found on many '47cc' pocketbikes.
Haha,I have a 25 cc motor that puts out 2.5 times the rated horsepower of that goped motor.I got one of those 39.9cc reed valve pocketbikes I'll run against that goped motor .....
Oh yeah mine dyno's around 15 hp an industrial motor is an industrial motor, a true race prepped reed valve motor will leave a piston skirt motor laying around like your dirty underwear.
Like I said before, you're absolutely rightBulldawg racing said:The point I was making is you can't compare those two motors,a reed valve motor is much better than a "piston skirt" motor.The yeilds in pure usuable power are much higher in the reed valve motors.
[email protected] said:A 'piston skirt' 2-stroke engine has the carburetor connected to the cylinder. Intake of fuel is governed BOTH by the piston covering/uncovering this intake port, as well as through induction through the transfer ports. The piston covering the intake port prevents fuel/air mix pushing back into the carb.
A case reed inducted engine has a carburetor connected to the crankcase, and fuel intake into the cylinder is through the transfer ports only. The reed valves prevent fuel/air mix pushing back into the carburetor.
The site you posted is essentially just hyping their stuff - 99% of all the '47cc' bikes are case reed inducted.
