Hey Fredzzz, nice to see you had some time (Little did you have) to make a post on your twin Cylinder Ciao. I do not remember if this ran last meeting?

Engine sounds rather calm with these exausts.

Going for the Bernardi Mozzi's in this build? I thought you where using them in your multiple carb. Ciao? I myself made the decision of getting some other mags or alloys. Although these plastic Bernardi's survived some offroad riding and other great tours.

I mis the feeling of security in high speed corners. Let me know what your driving experiences are?

Re: MOPARTS RACING Twin Cylinder Vespa Ciao

gee whiz that doesnt look complicated at all

Sure, it ran last meeting, but I didn't start it. The exhaust weren't ready yet.

The bike is over at my colleague's garage now (in Germany). He built the exhaust, widened the rear fender for wider tires and did some other adjustments.

Here are his adjustments...

Bitch'in pipes, seven months, any updates?

Re: MOPARTS RACING Twin Cylinder Vespa Ciao

why not expansion champers- does it have to do with case induction?

Re: MOPARTS RACING Twin Cylinder Vespa Ciao

All of this insane engine work and no expansion chambers?! What. in. the. fuck.

About the exhausts: This is STAGE 1.

You know I'm crazy, so no worries, those exhausts are coming. I first wanted to "run in" the bike with stock exhausts and get a feel for it before blasting it with expansion pipes.

Eventually custom made pipes will be built for this Ciao. Two of these below, one left one right. Approved? :)

Re: MOPARTS RACING Twin Cylinder Vespa Ciao

pipe looks awesome. boxer's are so cool, low rent Derbi Variant.

Re: MOPARTS RACING Twin Cylinder Vespa Ciao

Since both cylinders fire at the same time you could have two headers and one pipe.

Re: MOPARTS RACING Twin Cylinder Vespa Ciao

i like the lack of expansion chambers. makes it a sleeper ped that can blast.

Re: MOPARTS RACING Twin Cylinder Vespa Ciao

I'm gonna go with Victor. The stockish pipes and totally clean paint work make it look like a stocker. Plus, there's no replacement for displacement, and that engine probably has Insane primary compression. and, you know, Reeds. And it's what, 130cc?

That thing moves, I guarantee. Expansion chambers will just drive up heat, that sucker is an all day every day Muscleped.

This is exactly what I said about it. Chambers would be cool but the fact that it looks so factory is pretty damn cool.

Re: MOPARTS RACING Twin Cylinder Vespa Ciao

that thing is beautiful, more photos please

But you still need it to not snap in half.

Re: MOPARTS RACING Twin Cylinder Vespa Ciao

Do you have any pictures of how the crank is modified to use this?

Search, "Twin cylinder Vespa Bravo", a thread I started many years ago.

Re: MOPARTS RACING Twin Cylinder Vespa Ciao

Does the rear cylinder have any problems with wear since you're effectively spinning it backwards? I guess the rotary intake timing for the rear cylinder would also be a bit off if you were using that.

Cylinders don't really care if they're run cw or ccw in terms of durability.
