AV7 Variator Nut. 14x1.5 or 14x2.0?

Is the stock AV7 variator nut coarse or fine thread? I can't measure as I'm at work and I want to make a variator nut before I go home. (edited)

for realz eh...lol I'm so fail...

I used the search and came up with 14mm as the answer in a few posts.

oh well, off to Crappy Tire after work, maybe I can use a standard nut.

I'm just going by the wiki, but it sounds right.

so of course the hardware store doesn't care M11. I'm thinking if I should just machine an m11 nut or order it from treats. kinda want to go riding haha..

M11 are hard to find off the shelf in hardware stores or even automotive places. Motorcycle shop might have one that would fit in the random fastener tin can over by the workbench.

14mm is the size of socket you need on it... (edited)

ahh gotcha, thanks! Yeah I guess I might as well order one. Which one of these heads would you recommend to run with the 50cc biturbo kit?

or

or stock?

Re: AV7 Variator Nut. 14x1.5 or 14x2.0?

The second one is the Malossi GR1 with the squishband profiled upper combustion chamber, the Teknix is a copy of the stock MBK closed chamber with the decompressor. I would suggest the GR1 squishband...

...and if you dont like it I will swap you for a stock MBK closed chamber head!
