Re: Best starting place
Agreed. There is no high performance ignition for the china 2 strokes, some claim to be but in speed tests they prove the same or worse than stock. Porting the cylinder, cutting the piston and using a performance head and exhaust are what's going to get you the most power with these engines. I also recommend a bigger carb than stock. Reed valves also help. But I would recommend starting with a stock engine and breaking it in before starting any mods.
