How about good old paraffin? Easy to use, cools and sets up quickly and won't stick to the metal if you use vaseline as a release agent. If you extract it prior to complete cooling there should be some pliabiity to it. Just a thought.
Whew! It's early and I haven't had any caffine!

Here's a product I found. Don't know if it is in the "cheap enough" range, but doesn't look to be "too expensive". http://www.scul.com/catalog_98/CastingMaterials/URETHANES/flexurethane.htm

If you weigh 280 why don't you get the Ciak 150? Its' a real scooter with real power and will serve you much better in the long run. A friend of mine has one with 20,000 km and he loves it. Very quiet too esp. when compared to the 50cc 2 stroke. Top speed is about 68-70 mph and gets about 68 mpg.
Can you give us a simple diagram? And you say this is between the reed cage and the crankcase and not the reed cage and the carb?
I agree. I was just looking at shapes. Can't see that any would truly be useful...and the main question is still "Why?"
Let's try this:http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.cyclewareables.com/pages/am_carbs_edelbrock/am_carb_edlebr_dual_manifold.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.cyclewareables.com/pages/am_carbs_intake_manifold/am_carb_intake_manifolds.htm&h=530&w=657&sz=193&tbnid=9q3jNJ9rmkYJ:&tbnh=109&tbnw=135&start=72&prev=/images%3Fq%3Ddual%2Bcarbs%26start%3D60%26hl%3

Here's an interesting read about a new technology that might answer some questions.http://www.shindaiwa.com/PDF/catalog/2005/c4_tech.pdf
Mr. Marc. Good news! You've picked about the best metal for thermal conductivity, much better than aluminum. Check out the linf for more info.http://www.schoolscience.co.uk/content/4/chemistry/copper/copch0pg4.html
Bet you're sorry you asked. BTW, I think you have a sticky "k" on your keyboard.
I think Mr. Breitman is going for "Salesman of the Year". I admire his enthusiasm, but just remember your Latin lesson.
Thanks for the link to Latin phrases. Hope some of the younger members will be curious enough to look it over, too!
Do you remember: "Latin's a dead language, As dead as it can be, It killed off all the Romans, And now it's killing me!" That was me!! I appreciated it for what it was , but hated translating all the stories about Uncle Julius and the boys.
Glad someone knows how to research something!
Hawk your wares in the proper section of the forum.
My, my! The boost bottle debate rages on and on. I tried one with great success (noticable torque improvement) on a little 43cc Mitsu engine that had a Walbro carb (no reeds). I also see where tuners of twin cylinder 2 stroke engines use them a lot, but I think the benefit there comes from using the boost bottle as a bridge between the two intakes and thus one cylinder assists the other and vis
Here is a brief explanation of ways to get more performance out of your electric scooter/bike. There are many places that are getting into this clean, silent form of fun.http://escooterparts.tripod.com/partsalternative.htm
You need to go to this site and start reading. There are many experts who can do wonders with electrics from mild to wild.http://www.visforvoltage.com/forums/index.php
Now's a good time to do some testing. Check the ront wheel first since it is easier to fix if necessary. Raise the front tire off the ground somehow and give it a spin. With a little lookig and listening, you should be able to figure out if anything is wrong up there. Then do the same for the rear, but there you have the drvetrain to contend with. Pull the wheel off and check things out.
More NOISE! And isn't that what we all want? Can you tell I'm an old geezer?
I think the first thing to do is determine if you have a reed cage as part of your intake system. That will go far in determining if the boost bottle will work for you, I think. If you do have a reed cage or block, then the positive effect of a boost bottle will be minimal according to what I have read and what others have said in this thread.
I'm curious. Does the moped you have put your boost bottle on have a reed cage? I've been doing extensive reading and from all accounts, the boost bottle is designed to work on 2 strokes with rotary valves or simple carbs not using reed cages. Just want to know if you got this performance increase in spite of what is said.
Here's one! Saab Sonnet, that is.http://www.auto-roedig.de/Unterhaltung/WPSonnet2.htm
Well brock, I like your explanation as much as anyone else's. I don't think anybody really know why they work in some cases and not in others. I know the twin cylinder 2 strokes really seem to reap the most benefit as do some engines that have the small carbs (like string trimmers, etc.) I have a spare intake manifold for my little FA50 so may try again to squeeze a boost bottle in so
Thanks Ray, and no hard feelings, Brock. Just having a little fun. I'm often a Dumbass, just not this time!
Hey, I'd like some "dramastically" improved performance too, but I couldn't find it in the dictionary. Sorry guy, I just had to do that!
