Who can port my cylinder/case?

Anyone here in the south SF bay area (San Jose) that can do some porting for me? I don’t have a lot of cash but I do have some very odd car parts and an 81 Honda NC50 with a kit on it I might trade for work.

Drop me a email and we might talk aboot this. I can do most of it but I'm feeling really lazy right now.

The wizard that is jbot lives down there. But if he did it your bike might hit warp speed.

Re: Who can port my cylinder/case?

I seriously doubt that Jbot would help those that are too lazy to help themselves. Mopeds is not his profession I don't think he wants your money.

Re: Who can port my cylinder/case?

Yeah laziness probably not the best way to get things going in your favor. But I envy those that can have a guru in their back yard. I wish someone was only a 30 or 45 minute drive away that I could bring stuff I need help with to. I tend to lack knowledge and tools for many of my aspirations with mopeds. And the folks that I know with some knowledge and tools dont care two shits about mopeds so they want to charge soooo much for the work. I just want to learn. I'd pay more for that. But school is lame, i'd rather get schooled. Ha!

I don't understand, you've been porting since you were twelve but need someone to port for you?

Yes. Three broken backs, Rheumatoid arthritis, herniated disc in the lower back and I'm the care giver for my 75 year old brother who has parkinson's disease so yea having it done would help with time to do other small things.

Re: Who can port my cylinder/case?

Why does he even need to justify himself to you people? Good grief.

The last time I mailed a cylinder for machining it came back half packed with a broken fin, at this point I would rather buy the equips, make the time and do it myself.

This. Offering peds or rare car parts for labour exchange. I don't see the problem with subbing the job out if the guy just don't have time.

I just asked why someone who's been porting the majority of their life would sub out the work. I did not call him lazy or question his sincerity.

I don't have the tools anymore and would have to buy them. I think I'll just get the tools rather then putting up with a load of ******** for asking if some one can do it.

Sorry you're dealing with all of that. I blew my back out last September and haven't worked on or ridden a bike since. Hopefully someone will come through for you

Yeah people on here like to be assholes lately. Seems the covid is now turning people into argumental dickwads. Go to the off topic and read all the fight club shit. I hope you find what you need.

Do not go to off topic. I got stage 4 testicular cancer last time i strolled over that way. Carcinogens through my eyes, straight to the sack

Re: Who can port my cylinder/case?

I see a cottage industry here. While I have ported cases, I have never ported a cylinder for fear of screwing the cylinder surface/wall. If US/CAN customs weren't a drag, I'd gladly sub out to RebelMoby (if he'd have me) just to increase the ped's street credit. (edited)

Re: Who can port my cylinder/case?

Im just curious what tools do most people use to port the tiny moped cylinders? I wonder what both professionals and hobbyists would use. I heard that some people use dremels but even with the tool below I would never get a good cut.

Re: Who can port my cylinder/case?

Need to use a good carbide burr. Then you can use a stone or drum sander to smooth out.

Re: Who can port my cylinder/case?

Here is my tip, Don't use a carbide burr unless you are roughing.

Carbide is fine, but it is really hard to control. It is amazing at it's job and that is high material removal rates but it is not a be all end all bit.

What you want to do is if you have a lot of material to hunk away, start with a carbide or HSS burr, then swap up to a nice diamond dental burr.

With the diamond dental burr you have amazing control. It is so easy to just not have to worry about it grabbing and rattling around a port. Plus they are cheap.

I use this cheap aliexpress dental handpiece, I have gone thru one set of the "tips" but the motor and controller are still kicking. Key is to lube it a lot, like every hour or so lube them

https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/_dVGsfTQ

bits you want diamond burrs like these.

https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/_d9cegk4

those are 2.35mm shank, also note the 90* hand piece required latching D bits, but I usually just grind the D into it and superglue it in, then tap it out when I am done. You can also find these in the standard dremel size as well.

After that practice, practice, practice!

Having a few small diameter sanding drums are also very handy for large flat things.

some of the key points are trying to change direction and pattern often to avoid divots and help with removing high spots. If you follow the same side to side pattern it's easy to create wavy divots that are hard to remove.

Re: Who can port my cylinder/case?

Ok I have a Question! Tired of reading over again. I was wondering if you ever even stated what is it you want done here?

What is the cylinder/case?

Do you want just the exhaust raised a little or widened?

Did you just want a kit case matched ?

Can you mail the items to the sacramento area?

Tell us what it is you want done so someone can determine if they want to take on this noble task.

Dremels do work. I've just done simple work but watched a more experienced guy cut a bun h of ports in. One fast cylinder and helped to stay cool with grooves cut in.

My favorite. HT nawmatic dremil cheep bits off eBay. Lasts way longer than any electric one I had. I burned up 5 electric ones in a year and swapped to air. 3 of there were actually dremil brand and 2 cheep ones. It has a lifetime warranty so I can just swap it out when the threaded parts don’t stay connected anymore.

How many CFM does the hand grinder Need and tank size. I sold my 60gal tank so I need something on the low side.
