HB stage 4 head

Can any one tell me where I can get hold of converted cylinder head for the stage 4 tune? Ive tried phoning Harry but haven't been able to get hold of him. Would it be possible for me to get the top of the barrel machined down instead of the head turned? What I mean is using a 1.5 packer and two gas...

Re: X6 & X7

I'm very interested in any thoughts or feedback on the x6 for the small block casing.
from the look of the few pictures I've seen it seems to have feeds from intake to transfers like the rb.

Re: Tank straps-different lengths

There are two different sizes because there are two different sets of tank rubbers. the bottom tank rubbers for Li's and specials fit into a hole in the bottom tank support on the frame where as on a gp they slid over the bottom tank support. sorry but I cant remember for sure if the longer strap go...

Re: Turbo Lambrettas soon ?

I believe the record breaking streamline lambretta 125 from early 60's was supercharged. Richard Taylor did some cad drawings of a supercharger for vespa et4 engine. In my view a supercharger is easier to modify for a scooter engine than a turbo as a turbo need a reliable oil feed as it spins at aro...

Re: which kit for a rally touring px200

Hi speedy, yes considered the HB stage 4 but its still using restricted transfers. I don't mined splitting the cases getting the crank inlet altered and matching the transfer ports.
All reports I've seen about malossi kit still say you have to use t5 short gear which is the opposite way I want to go.

which kit for a rally touring px200

I'm in the market for a new kit for my px200 disc. I'm a big fan of the old polini cast iron 208 so I was thinking of the new polini aluminium 208 but now malossi has the new sport 210. So which would make a better touring machine?????? I want to keep autolube and probably fit a polini induction kit...

Re: Fuel Pump

Sorry but the oil hole is no good, it has to be tapped into the area where the crank sits. The pump uses the differences in crank pressure to pump petrol. It can be anywhere from just below the reed petals up to the barrel transfers. If you don't want to do a full strip down take cylinder off stuff ...

I thought all legshields were the same and the headsets were different. Can anyone con...
