Hey guys so I'm trying to get my Starflite fast. He's been reliable stock (with some minor changes), so hopefully i don't make him blast his own head off with all this. I will try and tune it for low end torque cuz city life. I'm not a master clearly so if you can, keep explanations simple for a simple boy.
15.15 Dellorto (jet sizes when i'm actually running it)
I'm hogging out the cage entirely, and putting on carbon fiber reeds. I'm a LITTLE bit worried about having no central support on the reeds and that they'll get sucked in. Anybody have any input here?
There's almost no material to remove here without blowing through the thin casting (no secret), I don't know if I have capabilities to add aluminum weld to thicken so I can do this. I've accepted it will be as is for now.
I think I got the last one from treats LOL. Anyways I've filed down the spacer and the crankcase to make for a smooth transition from the ports of the case to the Motomatic cylinder ports. Looks nice. I still need to figure out what head I should get for this kit, treats just says a matching morini head? I can only find one such as this .
A recommendation from an IDIOT friend of mine (jk dave) is to send this puppy over to Mr. Crankshaft or Crankshaftworks.com and have them replace both the roller bearings on the big end and either ream out the brass bushing on the small end or replace it or put in a needle bearing. I'd love some input here on which of those to do for the small end. I know they'll also true it and stuff so that sounds kewl.
I did the typical mod here of replacing the stainless steel ball bearings in the clutch spring. Some people do ball chains or whatever but I went with aluminum balls off of Mcmaster that are the same diameter.
I bought the People's pipe from treats, it's the only exhaust that will mount right onto this kit unless you have an adapter. Pretty self-explanatory.
I think that's it. I am trying to research what I need for the crankshaft job i need done so that's where I'm at. Once I get that back it'll be rebuild time and off we go to the moooooooooonnnn. I'll get pictures or throw this stuff in the wiki when I'm donezo.
