Looking for some advice from anyone in the Pinasco know.

Running a 213 Pinasco kit and the scooter runs great. Fuel consumption and performance spot on, so I'd be mad to change anything.

But I am a bit mad and am wondering... is there anything recommended to add on that would be worthwhile and wouldn't have a detrimental effect on the performance?

I'm thinking 60mm crank(?), central VRH head(?), carb air intake trumpet(?) and / or bigger airbox(?).

Like I said, nothing major, just to complement what I've already got. Your recommendations and why (to a non-mechanically minded person like me) would be great.

Need more details.
Complete setup- pinasco 213 isn't much info.
Performance figures other that "fuel consumption good" would help

Go with a 60mm stroke crankshaft, but don't get the ones that are heavily cut for high RPM. The Pinasco is a reliable plodder with bags of grunt. I use a Tameni 60mm crank which closes the rotary valve at 65 degrees ATDC. I also lengthened the rear of the crankcase inlet port by ~4mm, to give me an earlier open and a total duration of ~185 degrees.

The VRH head is as good as any with the longstroke setup, or just get yours machined if you know someone who can do it properly.

I have recently changed from SI 24/24e to PHBH 28mm, and have noticed a better response and a cleaner, stronger pull through the gears. Mine is upgeared to 24/63, so I needed a bit more power, which I believe the carb upgrade has given me. Otherwise, keep with a conservative pipe eg. BigBox Touring and stock clutch (good condition components). Make sure it gets enough fuel and you'll have an even better engine.......maybe 17/18 hp.

Brilliant swa45. Thanks so much. I've got the Big Box touring exhaust and also a BGM superstrong clutch to go in.
I've kinda settled on the idea of a Pinasco 60mm crank, and Pinasco central (VRH) cylinder head. I feel I want to stick with the 24/24 carb and hope that's a good call!
Like I said it runs great and has been so reliable. Just fancy giving it a mild boost.

A 60mm long stroke crank is the best thing for a Pinasco kit
A stock carb will be ok if you drill out the fuel supply hole to the main jet to 2mm

A Pinasco 60mm crank has virtually the same timings as a Tameni/Mec Eur.
All are great cranks.

You will have a nice set up
enjoy
