How do you people make new ports?

Luke “Funkenet” Hosfield /

I've seen several people add piston cooling ports to cylinders (like Crazy Wayne's 13 port K-Star and I wonder how you all get in there to do your work?

Do you have a shrink ray and shrink yourself to 2 inches tall and walk inside to do this type of work?

Or is there a tool?

I guess this is what the pros use:

but are there other options that arent $700?

Re: How do you people make new ports?

Those are transfer ports, not piston cooling ports. Use a dremel, and a steady hand.

The small holes in the piston are for cooling.

I mean no offense, but if you don't know what they are, you probably will do it wrong :) (edited)

None taken. I was talking about this (perhaps Wayne's Kstar was a bad example):

Also I cant reach some of my existing ports with a dremmel currently (V1s and 505s) so my logic is if I can do that^ I could reach any damn port I want to.

Should I buy this dental drill?

Mars some of the piston cooling ports i cut in pistons mach up to the slot ports i cut in the cylinder walls and become transfer ports that help cool the piston even more.

But what tools do you use for this?

Sharp ones in my modified lath & die grinder setup.

Or was it a mill?

Re: How do you people make new ports?

yea wow guys real helpful. I sometimes wonder, an answer would've been fun.

either way, I just about never fuck with transfers in the cylinder. I'll make em bigger at the case, grind exhaust & intake all willynilly, and while I understand how expanding and adding transfers will change things, I'm nowhere near bold enough to take a whack at it.

yet still, i'd like to know what setup you use to do it.

Re: How do you people make new ports?

^ Yeah what Will said.

Im not planning on fucking with the transfer port right now. My dremel is just terrible at reaching the port windows.

I know how CW does it, but I respect Wayne's secretive ways. He's like an alien panther lurking in the shadows, just out of sight in the Pandoran jungle. (edited)

Re: How do you people make new ports?

do i see a burr on one of those ports edges wayne???

Re: How do you people make new ports?

really though that is some sexy porting! I wish i had a mill.

Re: How do you people make new ports?

for $10 its not a bad deal, but if your going to buy a rotary tool new, the best quality for the money is a foredom. I can show you mine next time you come over luke.

That would be cool.

Right now I am mulling over ideas on how to attach a chuck to the end of a bike cable. That would be nice.

Re: How do you people make new ports?

I prefer to hire the littles over the oompahs. They work for bread.

Seriously, when I port, I mix techniques. Dremel, file, sandpaper. Round file for sharpening chainsaw chain.. Whatever fits and gets the job done.. Sometimes I even drill then smooth up my work with sandpaper.

I pulled like two millimeters up on my transfer ports on my FA50, widened the exhaust port, ported the reed cage, and made custom carbon fiber reeds and hit 35 with stock air cleaner, carb (stock jets), and stock muffler.

A Graham Bell's modifying the two stroke book is a great resource. (edited)

Re: How do you people make new ports?

You want to complain? Try porting a 35cc chainsaw.... The biggest issue with any port job is don't nick the bore... The second biggest issue is how far to go...

Re: How do you people make new ports?

rat tail files and a good movie.

Re: How do you people make new ports?

i used hand files on the hero im still taking my sweet ass time on and it was nice how straight you can make things compared to a rotary. just takes time.

Re: How do you people make new ports?

yeah i gotta invest in one of those right angle grinders. those are the nazty.

Re: How do you people make new ports?

Hey Graham you got a link? I found a dremel brand one and it looks to bulky to fit in most cylinders.
