Re: Gearing

Depends on the engine set up you're planning to use. I used to run a 23/65 primary drive on my old 177 engine which had the 28mm carb reed valve crank and all the bells and whistles - acceleration was amazing but it couldn't maximize at the top end and flatted out.

Re: Wide tyre questions

I am using a similar set upon my scooter with the 11 rear SIP conversion rim. I have opted for the Pirelli SL26 tyres which are a lovely compound in this Asian heat. They are available in both 10 inch for the front and the 11 inch for the rear. Like you my scooter OCD don't allow for mixed rubber.

Re: Fitting a 130 rear tyre

Thanks mate did you run the tubed tyre on the two wide rims ?? Due to the pain in the butt aspect of changing the tube was you on Tubeless rims or just standard if tubeless which one ?? I have had a look at the SIP options but all seem to be discontinued now.
