Does anyone have experience with the Pinasco 177cc Cylinder Kit for 2 port vintage?

I'm thinking about a winter project.
Maybe I can get my VNB to pull up the hills a little stronger.
hopefully my green plate is in the mail.

I have one on my VBB. It won't have you doing power wheelies or anything, but it's definitely better than stock.

What are you using for Carb and exhaust?

I put a 20/20 and a SIP Road 2.0 on it. Flowed the airbox to the carb, but didn't do any of the additional work I'd do now: mess with the rotary timing, open up the transfers, or even match them.

It was my first rebuild, and I was pretty happy just to have it back up and running.

As memory serves, the transfers were a pretty close match out of the box, though.

The aluminum 2 port is a solid kit. We bolted one on modkuo's Super. Has a "stock plus" feel, good power, dependable, no drama. I'd recommend it.

I didn't see a aluminum kit. Where did he get it?

Think he got it from SIP, I'll ask. It's a pretty sweet kit... it's actually a 3 port with a gasket that blanks the third port. Bolt n go as 2 or 3 port, easily upgradable downstream.

This kit does the 3rd port even better than the DR. That extra hole near the rings will keep the 3rd port open, even on a 2 port case.

I have one on my '65 Allstate. It flies now.

By the way, the ROM Saturday ride doesn't go north on the 101. It goes back roads, but is still a pretty fast ride. It does come south on the 101 down the big hill though. I did it last year on my P. If I go this year I'm taking the Allstate.

That is good news. What exhaust are you using? I'm thinking about the Polini.
Is a 20/20 carb going to be enough?

How do you get to the north county without going up the 101?
The only roads that I can think of are HWY 41 or Old Creek Rd.

24/24 carb and a TS exhaust. The TS exhaust has a lower profile than the SIP Road 2.0, I don't know about the Polini. I got it from Bar Italia in Van Nuys, they had NOS ones in stock. Scooter-Speed rebuilt the engine so I'm not sure exactly what they did, they said something about porting the case to match the bigger carb.

I don't remember the route, but we didn't get on the freeway until the way back down.
