I have a 80 Newport II as well. I ran my 12mm Bing on a kit before I had it bored out to 15mm. It did fine. With that setup I would say high 60's to mid 70's jetting. I ran a 76 jet on the 12mm Bing with a Tomo's Alukit and a Homoet 4p. It has reeds and It is a fast pipe but I managed Low 40's with 18x40 gearing. I bored the carb, upjetted to 80, put a high comp head on, changed the gearing to 18x36, and now it gets me to 52. It will pull me up a rather steep bridge to about 45-47 depending on wind too.
From what I understand the Mk65 is a good kit and has potential. It doesn't hurt that its an iron bore. The 70cc K-star is well loved too.
You could just get a good pipe, get your carb bored out, and do some porting on you stock cylinder and you will see 40's. Hell, before I bought anything I raised my exhaust port 1mm and did a little modifying to the stock exhaust and saw 36mph. Now that I know a little more about porting I probably could have gotten more. I have heard rumors of someone hitting 50mph on a high torque cylinder.
