Hey guys!! =)
Just bought a bravo because the ciao really screwed my back up being hardtail. Ciao has a 43mm malossi with drilled intake, high flow air filter, 13/13 carb, increased timing (stock modded) crank.
My Superbravo. Daily ride/commute and ride-for-fun-bike. Smart performance options needed. I value reliability very highly. No decompression valve and a kick. Electric ignition/CDI. Would love to keep kick if possible, otherwise I'ts OK to run-start it.
Stuff I already have on my desk:
-Malossi mutlivar, a ton of different weights
-yellow counter spring
-polini top one exhaust
-tecno circuit exhaust
-stock dellorto 13/13 carb (no drilled)
-malossi high flow air filter (red filtered one)
-stock gears 12.25:1
-odd gears 8:1 (?) for 30mph market i was told
-malossi clutch springs (3 different strengths, stock, extra and race)
Note: I could buy a 43mm kit but would need help drilling out intake which would totally cost more than selling the complete stock engine and buy this stuff and put it together more or less myself.
Suggestion so far:
malossi cylinder kit 46,5mm $160 (assumption: best kit pre-D.E.P.S which is steep as hell at $300 = unsmart)
mazzucchelli vespa piaggio anticipato racing crankshaft $150 ($120 + shipping to europe)
Alternative crank: Top racing pre-modded for longer opening: $110 (including shipping)
Questions, skip the ones you no want/no can to answer:
Should I go with
A) Polini Speedengine $150
B) Malossi Reed valve carter $162 (which opens up for 19 PHBG for additional $200 in the future if wanted)
What crank is the best of the two? Cost is so close so does not matter so much.
What hp/kw could be expected with this kit?
To compare and determine: what hp/kw could be expected with 43mm? What hp/kw could be expected with D.E.P.S kit which is additional $150?
I am thinking: Malossi case, malossi 46,5mm, top racing crank, stock gearing, yellow spring, appropriate clutch springs that grip on xxxx rpm. That would put be back about $332 + decomp lever etc. Then if still unhappy, go wild with the 19mm carb for +$200.
Pro feedback? =)
