Good kit for a ZA50?

Hey all,

I have a 1980 magnum II ZA50 and am looking to kit. I am also not looking to change my carburetor which is a 15mm bing. Is there any kit that would allow me to keep my current carb and also work well on the ZA50? I hear that the gilardoni is good but I'm not sure if I want to spend that much on my first kit.

Re: Good kit for a ZA50?

You will love almost any 70cc kit you can buy. I'd recommend something easy for your first kit.

This one would do you well.

this is a good one, if you must kit. pair with a 70cc head as well, it will do nicely with 15 bing.

The KStar/Treats kit is great, case match and plop it on.

Then, if you wanna go faster, just a little port work really brings them to life.

Also, they are pretty hard to kill.

It looks like the treat/kstar is a good bet. Any gearing recommendations or other tuning things I should do along with it? Like I said this is my first kit.

The 44 actually works better with a stock 2hp head(i think i had a #3 on mine)than one of the kstar 70cc hi comp dudes. All the airsal kits have a decomp hole in the top of the cylinder so you either have to fill it or make sure to run a head with a proper sealing surface. Definitely get a proma circuit or estoril for any kit you eventually decide on.

^^^ agreed on the pipe choices.

And definitely changup the gearing. probably between 19x37 to 20x35 will work really well with that setup.

Perfect timing and jetting is a must not to mention having a good crank/crank bushing and nonleaky seals with good bearings. Run a all around power pipe like a circuit, Proma or estroil

Make sure you order and run a head temp gauge so you know if your running hot.
