You’re going to need a huge chamber to move enough air to make big power with ports that big. Don’t think high rpm. Think big mid. Like peak power around 10-11k. Big hitter kinda thing.
I think your price is too cheap and people are scared of how fast it is. Raise the price and make it slower!Seriously wicked engine build. Legit 60mph.
Looking to buy OEM Puch Magnum hydraulic forks in any color.ThanksMatt
I loved my OG 65MK. That’s what started it all for me. That thing was a blast. I too would kinda like to build another bike with one to see if it’s as fun as I remember it being.
You don’t have to run a head gasket. It will leak out a little oil over time and that’s fine.Does the noise go away once you’re cruising at max rpm?I assume the carbon buildup on the head is on the exhaust side. That’s too much heat in the pipe. Advance your timing.Let’s see a plug chop.
Based on your flywheel marks I think you’re timing it right. You want the points to break open at your desired BTDC mark, not be able to stick a shim in it. Should still run either way. Arching points is bad as stated. Getting a weak spark at the plug with no compression won’t necessarily spark under compression. I think you’re onto something there.
The piston with the ring at the top is a dykes ring, L shaped, uses the compression of the engine to help seal. Don’t let that stop you from running it. Make sure the ring gaps on the new piston don’t open into a cylinder port. Make sure the piston size is correct.
Gila works great. It’s a solid kit out of the box. Knowing what I know now I’d go with a Gila from the start too. I’m not sold on the hpi though. I’d save money there and stick with conservative points timing.Chamfer ports and pistons. Gap piston rings. All that.Gila is a solid kit. I’ve destroyed a lot of stuff but the Gila isn’t one of them.
I’ve run an MLM Cali on a Puch 65 Metrakit and an MLM BK100 on a Puch 74 Gila with great success. Both are great pipes. Highly recommend both.Never ran a Crank pipe but hear good things just like MLM. I wouldn’t be afraid to try a Crank pipe.

Just eyeball the same off each. The end should be enough. Shouldn’t need to remove anything from the bottom. Sure exact weight and balance is great but not needed.

BumpStill looking. Got the bug again and would like to add one of these to my collection.
What you’re describing are the symptoms of too much slip for the amount of power you’re making. Dial back the slip and it’s as good as it’s going to get. If you need more low end get a bigger carb and intake or a low end pipe.
Nice looking shop. I’m envious of all the space!
Anybody have a link to the MBR page that says what stiffness equals what stall?OP the OEM KTM is well worth the effort. Go ahead and pair it with straight cut gears while you’re at it. With the increased stall the helical gears will blow your snap ring off.
If someone has a nice one of these they’d sell me I’m still interested.
What’s up with that added jet on the TM24 on the website. That’s interesting.
I question how well your cleaning up your ports. It looks like you’re putting a chamfer on them but are you making it smooth. I use a piece of 400 on a small file and only file from inside out to make it really smooth. Need to get rid of all sharp edges on the piston skirts too while you’re at it then wash everything with soap and water. I use an old tooth brush to scrub with. Then lube with 2 str
Potr, depends on the bike. I have a pretty good idea of what they’re worth. wes66 threw out some numbers I agree with. If you’d like to email me some pictures or post them up here I’d take a took and make an offer. Thanks for the interest.
I was hoping someone had found something that worked good with the HPI inner rotor. At this point I suppose I’ll see how much current that coil produces and find something it will drive. I’m not looking for the worlds greatest light, something stock 1156 would produce is fine by me.
All these LTDs are making me want one even more!Gator, that’s an awesome find! Gotta love the paperwork. That guy has an interesting signature.Wes66, love the patina! Looks sweet
Satan, that’s a good find. I wonder how many are at garage sales and people laugh as they walk by.
Brian, you’re running the inner rotor? If so that looks great
Has anyone found an 1156 that the HPI inner rotor will power that projects light?I currently run an led that doesn’t project light but at least it illuminates so I’m seen. It would be nice to have a light for the back roads.I wonder if these have a low enough current drawhttps://www.ebay.com/itm/1156-LED-Fog-Light-Bulbs-Front-Back-Up-Reverse-Lights-White-Headlight-Upgrade-x2/224084733451?_trkparms
Ring gap is checked on the bench. Put the piston ring in the cylinder bore and measure the gap with a feeler gauge. No piston. Use the piston to square the ring up and a 1/2” down from the top.
Nick, that’s awesome. Hopefully you post about it.Moped Lar, it would be interesting to know. I bet there are a lot of them in garages, sheds and basements that belong to people who have no idea they’re popular and people want them.
Nick, that’s crazy somebody painted all that blue. At least they left the white alone. Are you going to leave it original finish or repaint it?Mark, I have an XK and it is a nice bike. Something about that white with the red/gold, the black chrome, the dash/fairing, it just makes the look for me.Chris, if there’s 1,000 it should even be easier yet to find. I don’t know that I buy into the whole 50
