70cc k-star kit

I.R.E. Mike Pee /

Alright, so I bought Roald's old k-star kit.

According to him:

"70cc K-star. New piston-ring (40 miles old) with reserve piston-ring (new). Modified exhaustport (67% of the bore and 1mm higher) and modified piston (1mm shortened and booster-ports dremeled. Booster-ports don’t look too fancy)"

So, what should I expect to have to do when I try to mount this sucker up? I searched for more k-star info on here and it looks like mixed reviews. Is there much to do for case matching? I don't want to have to work too hard for this one. haha

Re: 70cc k-star kit

Th transfer ports are quite large so if you match the case you will be removing a lot of material. I have both the RGD and K-Star and they are almost identicle. Almost have the RGD hooked up. Exhaust port is already large and if you have an aggressive pipe it won't make much diff if it has been enlarged. Both of these kits are very well made and I expect some big torque performance. Those boost ports mainly route some cool charge through the under piston to keep it cooler

So if I don't case match or match the boost ports will I have problems? Just asking because I know the polini will burn the shit out of the piston if you don't match it well. I've never seen a k-star, and it'll be a while since it's coming from the Netherlands, so I just wanted to ask to see what I'm in for.

So, basically, can I just slap it on and go? Or will it take more work? I'm not convinced I'll keep the k-star, so I don't want to do too much dremel work on a case I might not keep it on.

Re: 70cc k-star kit

Well the difference between the stk case transfers and this kit are very large. Try it without altering the case and if you experience no tuning difficulties what the hell. This kit shouldn't burn up due to the difference. Except for the boost ports it just looks like an exaggerated version of a stock cylinder

Sweet, thanks dude. If I decide to keep it on, I'll be asking you for some matching and porting tips.

Also, the age-old lame question: What jet should I run with the k-star, a 15mm bing, a high flow filter, and a techno boss? Just looking for a starting ground, or what others have used. I can adjust from there.

Re: 70cc k-star kit

if you match transfers low 90s, if you dont then high 80s. get rid of that boss too!

The boss is an alright pipe. I've got an estoril layin around here though...maybe I'll use that.

Re: 70cc k-star kit

You don't have to match the case. It will run fine without matching. However, when you do match the case it will perform slightly better.

The booster-ports in the piston are mainly for cooling and lubrication. They were there stock, but they were pretty small, so I matched them (roughly) to the ports in the cilinder.

I ran a 74 jet with 15mm Bing, Biturbo and modified stock filter. So I think you should be around the high 70's, low 80's. Depending on how hot it is there. Shall I throw in a 78 jet for you, or something? ;)
