    Barn Fresh Rat gone woody

    Thanks Rick, Years ago I supercharged a Honda 50cc minibike and used a 17 mm(?) flat slide delorto from a 50ccFantic super rocket. The 'blower' was the guts of a pneumatic sander ( rotary vane pump) pressed into a slug of aluminium and driven at about 2.6 to 1 from a tiny v belt from a vacume...

    Barn Fresh Rat gone woody

    Thanks. The front of the pipe was rotten when I got it so I cut it back to where the steel was solid, fabricated a new extension of the diffuser. The original pipe was a larger diameter at the cylinder though. Long story short I think I need to add about 2 inches to the header. This motor is...

    Yamaha DT 50 pipe and jet

    I'm getting good results using a DT50 main jet. I turned it down slightly and ran a tap over it to make it fit in the stock carb. I also used a DT50 chamber that I cut and modified. I tried to keep the pipe the same length as the original yamaha length. You can check it out over on the rat...

    Modded Boost Bottle

    Should a boost bottle actually be the same volume as the crankcase rather?
