What fuel would you recomend?
Can the 3 port sleeve piston be used or can only it only be the 5 port, spose the crank is different as well.
BTW it's in a V-One RR
Most fuels are fine 20% to 30% nitro
The race fuels have only have 10% oil... regular fuels have 12%oil.. Use the 12% and maybe even add some castors..
Myself I use a home brew of 30%nitro 12% synthethic and 4% castors
I have put a non-turbo head button on mine...As for plug I am using a mccoy #8 as of now because that is about all I can find right now..I prefer a nova rossi #7 (6,7,8 nova rossi seem to work well)
Some one else will have to recomend a turbo plug????
The sleeve should fit fine(quote me if I wrong on that)
The crank is different but only on inside diameter. And that is the only difference I think...Everything 3port should interchange..
After you get it broke in!!! these engines dont like to be loaded up... they like to stay on the pipe.
it will run hot if not geared right.. Good luck
