I really think this is soo cool....I would try it in a second if I had a pipe that would fit the cyl. .....I just got done with doing the piston skirt matching to the intake port....and then I run into this post.....Cool deal,way to go....

Have you had a chance to run the bike yet with the piston mod Paul? I did it a month ago and was very impressed with the response, and smoother run......

Not yet George just did it a few hours ago, and did it on the spare motor I have....But I heard it was a pretty good mod to do for some smoother running...I might go ahead and do it to the motor that is in my bike now....I`m really wanting to feel the difference .....Probably do it tomorrow,lol.....

I would like to put two engines together for a side by side twin like a Yamaha bike I had back in the 70's a 100cc twin street bike and for its size it was a hot thing it would hit 90mph in good tune at least that is what the speedo was saying when it died after a good tune up a TNT speed and sport shop in West Quincy Mo. I was passing every car on hwy 136 going back to Hamilton, Ill. I could not believe how fast that bike was running.
Fond memories for me at 16 years old and still in high school.

it looked kind of like that mine was a 1968 or 69 model that one there looks to be a newer model but its close to what I had I don't remember much else it had just a speedo and no tach or turn signals.

What I find interesting in this set up (without even addressing the carb) is the ease & advantage
one would have in adjusting the header pipe length between the exhaust port of the cylinder and the diffuser cone of the body of the chamber. Opposed to adjusting the length of the stinger. I understand this is where you really make significant gains in tuning a chamber's performance dynamics and it will depend on the % the header pipe is wider than what the exhaust port opening is at the cylinder. If your header pipe is 10% to 50% larger than the exhaust port....the length of the header pipe may be from 6 to 11 times that diameter. The lower length number for maximum hp and the larger for a wider overall power band. This according to my research.

As for the carb, I'm left to ponder using an "L" shaped tube to mount the carb to with the
opening facing to one side of the bike or the other. If the bike is ridden during dry warmer weather
carb heat wouldn't be necessary. When the carb is behind the cylinder as it was designed to be
it is in an environment where it can aspirate warmer air. (in cooler damp air riding icing could
occur at the carb intake) I wouldn't think a carb heater would be that difficult to set up to vent
warm air thru a small tube into the air cleaner.

Just some thoughts to consider.
