minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

Please checkout the picture.

I wanna try to get this to fit on the v1's I guess the timing on the intake/carbie side should be out all of the 360 degrees?

If the spacing is close enough maybe anything can be made reed valve? Just throwing it out there since you must have a v1L with this you just have to mod.

To much space will have no bottom end?? Alot of crank case volume or not enough?

Just comment.

Thanks, Ed

oops

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

thats an intake for a vespa right?

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

:) matt your the greatest =)

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

Only one way to find out...

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

Does not seem to make a lot of sense. If the inlet port in the cylinder is still controlled by the piston I can see no benefit in installing a reed kit. A reed type inlet is usually ported directly to the crankcase and not to the cylinder.

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

i was going to try that intake on my metra80 with a gila piston. I think I still will.

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

Puch Polini?

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

hey mopagen is that the 16mm intake or the 24?

why would you have a gila piston in a metra?

the gila pistons are thinner and i think worse design.

and gila kits now use metra pistrons

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

because that's the only stock size piston I could get, and the metra wont run with a gila piston in it because of the holes on the intake side of the piston. So I was thinking about making one of those reed intakes fit on a metra, so that I can use the gila piston.

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

there really isn't that much difference between the metra and gila pistons side by side. the gila has the two holes and thats about it. they're both made by mahle.

metra pistons are easier to get :o

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

not for me at the time. treats had the stock gila pistons in stock, no metra's. so i got the gila piston and tried it. A reed valve would make it work.

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

if you know where i could get a 47.0mm metra piston, please let me know.

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

Sir. I will mod the piston window to stay open 360 or some huge degrees...

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

sir, what size intake is that?

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

its a 24mm

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

you can get it in .. 19-21 i THINK... AND 24MM.

Re: minarelli v1 reedvalve kit

ok, I only seen the 16mm 24 and 30mm versions.

what website did you find those on? i only see them on ebay.

thanks

mike
