Is the Mega DS II currently available in the US? Or still only in Europe as they have been running it for some time now?


Thanks.

Kendall:

Last week I ordered some, and they told me that are on the way. So Hopefully they should be in US next week or the other. But they will be very soon.

I think the top end is 5.5 out and the low end is 7 turns out. I know the low end sticks way out but the motor runs great.

Default part # for MEGA ZX21 carb slide

Hi all, i'm new in this forum,
I have been using the ZX21 for a while and i like the power alot.
But lately the carb seems to jam up after it's hot. I think it is jaming at the idle
screw slot and not the body. i have tried file a bit to make it smooth.. it worked but after a few outing it start to jam up again. Have any one experience this b4.
any way to solve this other than changing the slide and idle screw??
Can someone help me with the part# for the slide?? cant find it anywhere..
Thanks in advance

Worked like a charm DJ!! Thanks for the help!

Hi,
I have a Mega ZX12 race I just picked up w/ a Dynamite pipe attached. I want to swap this pipe out for a new one. I was wondering what is a good pipe to run on this engine? What are you guys running? I like these Vantage pipes, killer looks, durable(?), but how is the performance? Anybody got one? Any insight would be appreciated.
Thanks

This is correct. It is the best pipe combo for this engine. I agree with Edgar. We have tested many different pipes and we always end up back at the one that comes with the power pack.

Paolo M,

Do you have an update on the 21 DS II? Before you said you were having flame out problems possibly due to head clearence and you were blowing plugs. Did you and the team find out the cause?

Thanks

He is at the nationals, so do not be surprised if he takes a few days to answer.

hello, I'm sorry if this question has been asked before, but has the mega conrod problem been solved?

I bought a zx12 outlaw pack (201006) early this month, do I need to change the conrod as often?

I've almost finish my first liter of fuel, when would be the best time to replace internals? at what intervals?

If you engine is stock, it should last longer, I was running a Maxy modified and normally change it every 2 hours.
