I think the MLM reed adapter intake is limited to something like a 16 mm inner diameter. Either way, I hope I haven't damaged anything by continuously running it lean / rich today. I guess I'll order the 2 stroke atomizer / bushing, a richer needle, and some more idle jets because my idle is still incredibly rich. When it arrives I'll tighten down the reeds / double check for any leaks again, replace the parts in the carb and check the float bowl, then start the tuning process all over again.
Oh by the way, I had a few questions for you Jbot on reed porting if you don't mind. What do you do if the cylinder you're porting had no boost ports to begin with? Do you just add your own and cut a boost window in the piston? How do you deal with plated cylinders after doing so, wouldn't the nikasil chip around the new ports and catch on the rings?
I'm asking because I was thinking of also eventually porting my treats 50cc cylinder as further porting practice a few months down the line when this current cylinder eventually goes, but I don't even know if it's worth it. No boost ports, but the piston does have a boost window. Would there even be a noticeable difference if the only change was a window cut into the piston for added fuel delivery, or does most of the impact from reed porting come from the 3rd transfer made from the boost ports actually allowing that extra fuel to reach the top of the cylinder?
