Yeah, I wish I had taken an after picture. It did work out quite well, though theres only 20 miles like I said, so we'll see. I wrapped the main crank bearing in duct tape before the cut and used about a half a can of carb cleaner afterwards to blow it out from every angle just in case.
I bought my crank from TreatsHQ. Like I said, it was cut a bit wider than stock, but not much. If I had been real precise I would have figured the exact angles it was cut to and gone from there, but I just went with the 10mm and 5mm Malossi recommends minus 20% for the slightly wider open the TOP had to begin with.
So far I am extremely happy with the setup. I bought the crank and Malossi 64 as a package, and put them together as such, plus drilling the intake the extra .5mm at the same time, so I can't speak to exactly what gave what kind of boost, but the bike feels FAST now. I should be doing short WOT runs within a couple days, and I'll let you know, though I guarantee my speedo will be buried (did that even before this last round of mods), so I'll have to get a pace car.
The TOP crank seemed to be extremely high quality when I was examining it before installation, other than rough cheek work (does anyone care about that?). The forged arm as opposed to the cast stock one, and the needle bearings for the wrist pin, and the enhanced oiling ports on the rod bearing should make the crank more reliable at the higher rpms and stresses the kit will be putting out.
The Malossi 64 kit is the shit, plain and simple. The port work is mind-boggling, including an extra transfer port with no case-work involved (I did do light case work on the two existing ones). The rings also look like serious business, in that they are about 1mm wide but several mm across, basically racing rings (a thin but broad profile pushes rpms-before-ring-flutter substantially higher than stock rings). Combine that with a highly forgiving cast iron cylinder for $160, and it's a sweet deal. It came with a high compression head that I did not install because it had no place for the decomp cable to seat, and I really wouldnt want to pedal this thing without the decomp. I might put the head on my Ciao. Overall, though, the kit is worth every penny assuming it holds up, and the crank should be too.
