Default VZB Speeds

I have a couple of nice VZB Speeds.

The first one is the model just before the World Champ Spec 2 however I have modified the crankcase to Spec 2 (only one small but significant improvement). I have also modified the crank for better balance, performance and runtime. It has been fully rebuilt with new bearings, conrod, piston pin and a slight pinch. With a OS 2090 pipe and header set this engine has well over 10 min runtime
$225

The next one is the same model engine but with a V-Spec liner (this combo produces excellent low down torque) and a new standard OS main bearing, still great bearings just no ceramic balls. Same bearing as found in Ninja engines. Engine has Speed crank, rod, cooling head, head button, block but crank is not rebalanced/flowed. This engine is just rebuilt and has not yet been started, came up very nice and will not disappoint.
$175 or $200 with crank rebalanced and flowed.

These are very good engines.

This is the piston and sleeve, as you can see, great condition and only a slight pinch.

This is what is done to the crank. The result is ultra smooth engine with great runtime and performance. The VZB Speeds were poorly balanced and as a result the main bearing failed quickly, often in less than 15 litres. With this mod the bearings lasted over 40 litres.

The first engine in my post. It has been run in and is ready for the race track. Can do the same to the other engine if required. The only reason I have not done the second engines crank is there are those out there who prefer stock but make no mistake the engine is much better with the crank rebalanced as in the pic.

No stone has been left unturned, the 21J carb has new orings, fuel inlet gaskets, etc. The engines come with a new glow plug, exhaust seal, extra carb inserts, caps and has the extra head shim fitted for 30% nitro.
If there any issues not caused by user error or normal wear and tear I will fix for free, you pay to post to me and I pay to post it back, service you wont find anywhere else.

These engine will last the same if not longer than a new engine of the same model. If you don't like scratches there is not much I can do about that but mechanically they are fine.
