Re: Vespa PX200 - Malossi - Blown engine

The Kheper ignition is a great idea. Being able to set the timing by phone means no wasted power. Is there anywhere to buy one? Seems like they are out of stock. I did have a Kheper version 1 but it blew up. I then had a Kheper version 2, that lasted much longer and blew up two of those. I am a litt...

Re: Vespa PX200 - Malossi - Blown engine

For the record mine has been on 18 degrees for years. No issue. Piston still un-dented.
Its usually bad jetting or too big squish clearance causing all the problems.

Re: Vespa px malossi 210 jetting

As always it depends on what you use the scooter for. For me the only benefit of reeds is that a bigger carb can be used. A P200 rotary pad can be made big enough for a 30mm carb, so if you don't need a carb any bigger than that then you don't need a reed block. The rotary timing depends on the rev ...

Re: Vespa PX200 - Malossi - Blown engine

You could get away with putting that piston back in. If you have a new ring in your garage, then fit it but that would have to be way worse for me to waste my money on a new piston. Spark plug will be ruined so you will need a new one of those for sure. The colour of the piston crown says it all.......

Re: Vespa px malossi 210 jetting

If fitting a reed block makes you happy. It will at least sound nice and if jetted well at low throttle will be more responsive. And you can add a bigger carb later.

Fitting a 60mm crank could work well with all the packer on the head.

Re: Vespa px malossi 210 jetting

Yours is a mixture screw, so either your carb has a blockage or you need a bigger pilot jet. I would fit a 60 pilot jet. When it doesn't return to tickover, is it after it has been running at high rom for a while? If so there is a different problem. For a reed block to be worth the expense and effor...

Re: Vespa px malossi 210 jetting

What carb is it? Maybe its an air screw not a mixture screw ;)

And 18 degress is still 18 degrees but the distance from TDC changes with crank stroke, which changes the ignition timing, Although not so much, so who cares?

Re: Malossi ignition timing

To be 18 degrees is assumed to be for a 57mm crank. A 60mm would need to be half a degree less for the equivalent timing.

The more advanced the timing is the more power it will have. 18 degrees is the safe choice.

Re: Fitting parmakit

If you give me some measurements, I'll do some sums for how I think to pack the barrel for max torque.

Top of exhaust port to top of barrel
Top of a main transfer port to top of barrel
