Engine Intake Info

  • '86 and '87 SLE should be a flat reed engine (the flat reed engine came into play in '86)
    • You can tell if it has a steel rear swingarm on a Variant step through, it is a flat reed
    • If it has an alloy rear swingarm, it's piston port or pyramid reed
  • the 81 SLE was pyramid reed
  • Derbi RD's were pyramid reed
  • Derbi Diablos and Lagunas piston port
  • the Derbi DS50 scooter is flat reed
