Iam picking one up tomorrow & wondered if anyone had any regrets or tips to share, it'll be going on standard crank, carb, & clutch, but with a SIP Road 2, cheers.

Had the old iron 207 on standard carb with SIP 2 and Kytronic, loved it.
Now got the alloy 210 but with 60mm and love it even more, no regrets having been a Malossi man for years.

I,v fitted it now Joey, ported casings to suit but had to remove head gasket to get the squish something like, running at 19 degrees. The only ball ache was fitting the circlips holding the gudgeon pin in :? , How many miles on yours now and how many did you do to run it in, cheers.

Did about 2 tanks worth on 3% shitty mineral oil, drained tank and been on 2% fully synth since......... done about 3000 over the summer and it's gone well even though quite rich.
Fitted an AF meter a few hundred miles ago so dialling jetting in much better now but that's on a 28 delly.

What percentage CO out of the pipe do you consider to be safe for that kit Joey.

Sorry kid, only just seen this............
Aiming at around 12.5 throughout rev range checking at 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and WOT.
Quite surprised that I've come down from a 140 to a 128 main and still rich but too bad.
Not been out on it for a while so not been playing with jetting.

Cheers Joey, when I used to dyno my kitted Lammys I noticed the operator aimed for around 7% CO, I do have a gas analyser at my disposal being a gas fitter, after I,v run it in I,ll pop it up the pipe and see what it reads. Got a 125 in mine Joey, too rich with a 128 in, not chopped it with the 125 in but I suspect it might be on the lean side as its running very sweet, I need to source a 126 & 127.

Hi, I'm about to fit on on my Rally. To get enough clearance to lift the cylinder off, do I have to take engine right out, or, can I just remove the engine bolt and swing the engine out a bit. Leaving all the cables in place.

Cheers
David

On my PX I took the head off, removed all 4 engine bolts then took barrel off, would this work on your rally.
