They are no better then normal kitted v1's, in every reguard

Do they seal up? Yes if you build them properly

how do they hold up? Well if you properly bore out the stud spacing rather then just jamming the cylinder on

Are they better? In short? No, however they do fill a gap the v1 (not so much the v1l) is lacking? Yes

the thing is v1 kits are all or nothing, the "80" Polini is really 73cc's, still big, but it has the exhaust stud spacing of a stock cylinder, limiting your exhaust options, kinda, this can be changed with some welding, or a dremel, but ya. The BRN/Parma "80"'s are 76cc, the Param stupidly has the small exhaust, but the BRN can run Puch/Tomo exhausts but takes a bit more skill to install properly

you know all this, so where does that leave Puch kits? Well it gives you a sub 70cc option, first off running 45mm kits is not a great idea, the thin skirt can have issues hitting the spacer and bending, but 44mm kits? now your in the jam for a nice 60ish cc middle of the road bike, bolt on reed kits to small cc piston port, your best bet is reeds.

so in short, learn the BRN and rip, if you want a "small bore" cylinder then these are a good option, fuck that TCCD, Jared would disagree with me, but hell he seized his motor and destroyed his clutch so take the advice you will

if your just looking for a little more get up and go on that bike, I've got a 55cc Autisa for you...But that's the gap these puch/tomo cylinders fill, small bore, ya they exist but you'll pay more for one then you would a BRN/Polini
