Much too much compression on this 225 kit. Hard to get kickstarted.
Use a SI 24mm mm and this marvelous air box kit done for the SI:

SI 24mm ? the standard ss180 runs a 27mm carb ? also what do you mean by " marvelous air box kit " and was hoping to get round the compression by lowering it with 2 head gaskets ???

SS carb is 27/23...
link to the airbox in the previous message
2 gaskets will waste the squish clearance...
