I'm building up a hobbit with the 47mm metrakit, super stuffy crank, and a proma circuit. I was planning to go with a vm20, but then I got to thinking. I have a few different vm26 carbs laying around and I'm wondering if this will be way too much carb. I know I'll need to figure out some different reeds if I go that route because the stock reed block will be limiting. Kit will be case matched but no further porting.
The VM26 is fine for the bore size, but your Reed opening is going to be the choke point
Don't forget to mill the head and deck the cylinder or you might as well get a Dr kit.

I know the stocker would like to be cut but I'm getting the metrakit w/custom cut head package from treats. Will that combo need machine work to get the right squish?
Yeah, ditto the point about the reeds.
Get the dio adapter and a set of vforce reeds, you won't regret it
And about the machining, i'm assuming treats did their job and got it right on the hobbit metrakits and the new Peugeot ones. But in general never assume anything will or won't need machining. Sometimes it's both lol. Even the most universal shit has pretty common exceptions and it's impossible to anticipate all the variables. Get the kit while the sale is on, test fit it and you'll know for sure.(edited)
Alright, finally got all my goodies together and started mocking things up.
Went with the trickmetric adaptor and Stage 6 dio reeds. I needed to make a spacer for the reed cage to keep it from rubbing on the crank.
Custom intake to hold the vm26 out to the side. I wanted to keep it clean and mount it in the subframe but I didn't want to cut up the frame just yet so this is what we got.
Carb is from a blaster btw. It might be a bitch to tune but its free so we're gonna see how it goes.
Now I just need to slice up and fit the yz80 pipe I've got for this thing.
Is the the new budget baffle from treats? I'm curious how they sound/perform.
That pipe is monstrous, looks like a stomach lol
Ffr, the trick metric only works with vforce/top/stage6 8 petal reeds. The generic dio ones are longer.
