Better to cut out the center bar and run a Polini reed, they are fiberglass and square, there are 2 thicknesses to choose from.
Man I want to get into that and learnThe only modification I did to the Piston was put a window in it this time around I modified it inside and out I polished the top of the piston reshaped the bottom of the piston and the skirt I also break edged the skirt internally ( knife edged ) and ground out the casting lines to make the window function properly.

Sooooooo many cool thing to do to them. I haven't even done ever mod or go to the extreme I like some of the older numbers on here have done that I remember reading.Man I want to get into that and learn
That's actually what I want to try on some of my motorized bike motors. Never done it but I want to try. I'm also the guy that wants to take a vertical motor and turn it in to a horizontal motor .just to do itSooooooo many cool thing to do to them. I haven't even done ever mod or go to the extreme I like some of the older numbers on here have done that I remember reading.
I even used what I learned on here to open up the intake and exhaust ports on my 50cc bicycle engine. I am hoping with the few subtle mods I did I can run with a stock 66/80cc.
I've been going with the cheaper ones since I'm fairly new at it. I haven't had any trouble mounting them except for the fat tire. They normally use something called a jack something another. Like on a garage door where one sprocket can run to another sprocket to get around the 4-in tire. I ran it straight lol it just took a while to get everything lined up. I honestly know nothing about motors and engines except what I've taught myself recently but I'm a very Hands-On try to reinvent the wheel type of person.The best bicycle engine is the 49cc piston port like on the scooters and Cateyes. Mounting them is a whole other story.
If you have a link send me a link I would love to try some other ones. I've got two more that should be here any day now I found them for 30 bucks online. Two was all I could buy because of the limit. Might have been like $35The best bicycle engine is the 49cc piston port like on the scooters and Cateyes. Mounting them is a whole other story.
