it's not an easy, bolt on fit. a Puch head might be the way to go if you don't want to modify a bunch of stuff.
thanks for the reply, ive been running puch heads but have still found that the squish needs attention on those... the search for the magical (bolt on) head continues.... I hear the crmachine (i think) heads are great, too bad they cost almost as much as a new engine. moto
