(Over 2 Ltrs) Will be interested to see what pipe you are running also.
I had 2.5ltrs left out of 10 after the final....lol

No worries....just make sure you richen it up a bit and it will run leaner with this pipe.

I tryed the Vox and I find it got better top end as the Picco engines .

Try the 2018 pipe or ad a shorter manifold on the 2033 . Youīll see .
On my Picco I used a 2052 Novarossi and I think it will work good on the Vox too.
I find the Vox is an amazing engine and got a lot of bottom power .
I like this engine and its true it runs with less temperature . I run the Vox with 100-105°C and it got enough of all . But 5 minutes are not in .
Maybe a lidlebit slower than the 9ports of Nova on the streight but only maybe.

I didnīt test the Vox against my Max TQ but I think the gap is very very small.

The Vox is not mine but one of my buddy . But I think to go for this engine .

Which Picco are you comparing the Vox to? Evo 3 or Evo 4?

I didnīt compare it directly . But I used the Evo 2 ,3 and 4 . For several years.
I find that from evo2 to 4 i didnīt recognize a great difference .
But from the Vox on the Evo 4 I felt a better Topend . I felt the rpmīs going up a lidle faster .

The Vox seems more reactive on bottom and bites in the midband. But I carefuly will say that it isnīt a huge difference to the Evo Piccos . I loved all my piccos because of its great bottom power . All Piccos got great torque . The Vox is an impressive engine . But I think the Piccos are it too.
The Vox got a lidlebit more bite . But its only my impression . Maybe someone else got a different opinion to this engine .

Is your starter box turning the right way?
Is the carb clogged up and fuel not getting into the motor?
Glow igniter charged?
Try a different plug?

Try dropping some fuel directly into the carb opening and see if it starts.

If the engine won't start and you think it's the carb settings causing it not to start, then the settings are likely too lean. If the needles are too lean, the engine won't get fuel, and thus, won't start.
Richen the top and bottom end needles, and raise the idle a bit. If you still have problems, go to your local shop and have someone with experience help you.
It won't hurt to put a new and trusted plug in it, and use good quality fresh fuel too.

i sorted it turns out it was a dodgy glow starter...i knew it had to be that because the engine wasnt coming to life at all...i was checking the glow starter using another plug in my hand and it worked fine so i thought the glow starter might of been dodgy because it was a bit stiff so i pushed it down on the engine at a different angle and it came to life straight away
