What scooter is this kit originally for? Good job adapting this for a Hobbit. Also, keep up the good work on your bikes and blog. Great information.

They make a needle bearing specifically for this situation. It has the outer diameter you need for a 12 pin piston and the inner diameter needed for a 10 pin piston.

They aren't too expense either.

I might scoop this if its still around in a week.

Doubt it will be at that price though.

"The bearing in question":http://www.provoscooter.com/stage6-reduction-wrist-pin-bearing-12mm-to-10mm-10x17x13mm-minarelli.html

I bought one for like $12 a while back but I can't seem to find the place I bought it from. Still $25 isn't too bad and needle bearings are kind of the thing you want to be of high quality.

Re: Honda hobbit MK watercooled scooter kit $145 o

so... that allows you to use a piston with a 10mm wrist pin on a crank with a 12mm rod? how would that help?

doesn't the kit come with a 12mm piston/wrist pin? and hobbits have a 10mm rod? ...

am I missing something?

Re: Honda hobbit MK watercooled scooter kit $145 o

oops, o no
