Try running a Red Dot 12. or a IDM 12.for a little more then 3/4 gallon. Myself and 3 others here in Fl. have had them expire before 1 gallon of fuel. Yes,, we know how to tune a motor. I AM NOT BASHING THESE MOTORS, just hoping the issue will get fixed. thats why most of your LHS tell u to replace the rod before a gallon.
Yep, starts with them blowing plugs....

Haha , I wish I could have gotten a sign like popping plugs at first, mine just let go both of them. And I do replace my rods after breakin.

But lets not Highjack this thread with negative input. I hope to see a great motor come from Orion CRF.

Official practice is over at the worlds and Bertin managed to get the 4th time overall. Ofcourse these engines are not the same as from the shop but it looks good.

Does this engine use the normal diameter exhaust port on the crank case? Or is it smaller and you need special exhaust gasket like normal Picco engines (Ofna & LRP etc)

Thanks in advance!

IDM plug = Sirio plug, so any Sirio Turbo plug will also work

Are you sure? I would think IDM plugs would be Picco's.
