SO like, before class starts I figure I'd like to start a topic on the hybridization.
Everybody runs tomos kits on puch's, but I don't see TOO TOO many posts on going the other way.
Let me just say that, wow, The polini ports are so massive its practically too large for the stock A35 tomos cases!!! I had to run two base gaskets, an A35 gasket & A polini gasket in order to attempt to make it to seal. We'll see how it turns out once i carb clean it after an hour or two of run in time.
If you want to do 4 petal ~70cc on a tomos i highly reccomend doing a puch kit over a tomos kit. The angle that the tomos kits are put at once 70cc diameter comes into play and once the malossi/polini 4 petal comes into play ends up putting the inlet for the intake directly in line with the fuel tank/frame. this is pretty much the suck, and impossible to work with. When I put the Malossi 4 petal on my Alukit, I had to lower the engine in order to make it clear. Theres' a thread on it by me, search for it and see the dramz.
With the 4 petal polini + 64cc polini kit i was set up by the getgo for awesome. Once i cleared the fins with a little bit of dremel work, the intake will clear the tomos but just barely. I checked for clearance on both my dropped engine blue bike with custom mounting points for the engine as well as the white bike with stock mounting points.
Also the larger engine cylinder studs of the tomos fit the diameter of the puch holes on the cylinder wonderfully. there's no play that way. impressive.
So then you come up to exhaust. oh the drama, what will we do.
Well as it turns out, the A55 exhaust is the one to attempt to use when doing the polini kit. It's so almost perfect, it just hangs a little bit low. With one cut and weld, for about 20 bucks at any shop, you can get perfection. What you want to do is cut the head pipe 80% of the way through, bend the pipe up so taht it fits the bracket, and then carefully unbolt it so that it's exactly the way you want. from there, rock and roll, you're ready for awesome.
I rode up and down the street for about 10 minutes for my initial breakin on the polini. impressions? It's pretty quiet, but has nice response. I'm trying to be nice to it, and hopefully it will last.
I am a big supporter of pictures with posts but unfortunately my cameraphone (5 megapixel autofocus with flash) was stolen so you'll have to give me a day or two to grab my backup camera and/or get a new phone.
