And so it begins. Pipe off, fuel pump relay and jumpers, tiny spare off to refit a 3.5x10.

It also seems to go a lil faster? The work now, NOT the bike - gonna be slower.... Shhh emoticon maybe

But yeah, gotta be more relaxing too and maybe only three pages of undoing here?

It does go faster, you know the way already!

As for the replacement, I started thinking on it when I realized I wanted a bike with more storage, like a top case and compartments, which is great for day to day use. As unthinkable as it is to say so on the NSM side, I'm after a GTS 300. I test rode a 2020, and they are really nice, despite the lack of shifting. I have 2 shifty bikes to keep though.

Now, back to the action. Looks like someone's been putting too much power through his clutch. Time for new corks, the tabs are shot.

Project stock
Well I was not going to weigh in on this, but what the heck. I've owned lots of vintage cars over the years, and just recently got into this scooter scene. I've read all the posts in regards to sdjohn attempts to sell his hot rod scooter. I have to say trying to sell a hot rod scooter is like trying to sell a hot rod 68 camaro of which I have. There is a point of no return when it comes to selling. I have made pretty good money over the years flipping first gen. Camaros as long as they were original. Scooters I believe are the same way. Originality is where it is at...when it comes to selling.
I bought a 68 sprint couple of year ago. The scooter had a completely stock p200e engine in it. Someone had done really good job on the install. If it would have had a hot rod p200 I would not have purchased it. After reading all the threads, it sounds as if the consensus is the same.
Too bad you didn't have a spare stock p200 engine that you could have swapped in...keep your hot rod engine for another project.
Good luck sdjohn in selling your scooter

Hey sdjohn I have a 1500HP 68 camaro if your interested. LOL one of those cars that is next to impossible to sell. I will say it is fun to drive.

Thanks Voodoo that would be excellent. My other needs if you have any laying about are a CDI boot and possibly the exhaust hanger bolt through the swingarm, but I think I can find that one (I know I wouldn't throw that out).

Shall I PM you my address again? Thanks a ton!

Well it's no sweat now, I've committed and it really doesn't look to be too hard to undo. I will keep some of the stuff that I think would be useful on a future largeframe build (24.24 carb & port matched box, banded clutch and cover). But my guess is a future largeframe project = VBB, Sprint, Super, or Rally. Most of those won't make use of the big ticket items (Malossi 210 and pipe) so those will go for sure. I agree, at 1500HP 68 Camaro is probably a very limited market Laughing emoticon

and I found them CDI boots plus clutch stuff. The new set of 7 spring corks is either in Greece or I used them rebuilding my spare stock clutch before the
Honda corks came along. The used set I pulled later when I went Honda and they should be good for lots of good miles, little wear really and good set of steels. So pick out your favorite booty and it's all in the mail.

As much as I hate to see this be dismantled before it was finished. There is a prime opportunity to do an O tune experiment that the new owner doesn't necessarily need to be told about.

As you have a tuned inlet and 60mm crank more mixture will be getting in than the cylinder can get rid of. This could mean it pulls hard but ends up slower at WOT than totally stock would. To get over this fit a 1.5mm base packer. Grind the centre of the exhaust port up 2.50mm (seems like a lot but it isn't), timing at 21 degrees and up jet the main until it floods then back one size.

Will end up like stock but just goes really well.

How tight should I set the squish in this? My first inclination is a stockish horrible 3-4 mm, because it didn't like it when I got it tight before the Malossi kit. There were spark knock issues then.

Through the stub is how I do them. No special tools required.

Exactly. Be sure to measure it before and after. It can feel like you cut a lot and its only 0.5mm

With a 1.5 base packer squish will be stock 3mm or so. Use a totally stock head and compression will be slightly more. Use anything but a stock head and it will not go so well. Only us here will know why its faster

My head is a stock one that's had 2mm shaved, so my initial plan was 2mm packer and 1.5mm head gasket. I can start with 1.5mm packer and see where squish lands.

For the head, I have 1.5 and 0.8mm already. For the base I have 1.5 and 2mm. I think we should be able to make it work with these.

So that's about 3mm. Here's the final product. It's tricky to hone now, my stones are easy to have fall in there, so I have to do it in sections.

I think you enjoy the grinding a little too much. You now have choices that all work. The 2mm base packer will be the way I would go now. 1.5 on the head and should all be similar to stock, just a bit faster and will actually go up hill with the other traffic.
