Re: which 70cc kit for vino 2t?
i got some more questions for you as i probably will go with the malossi cast iron kit.
if i get JUST the cast iron kit to start with what would you get along with the kit?
You could buy the complete bbk from http://www.ScooterPartsCo.com
for $125 shipped. It comes with everything you need although I bought a new upper rod bearing from Yamaha just to be safe. To take advantage of the bigger bore, you would eventually want to add a free flowing pipe and bigger carb, but for the moment you should be able to just jet up your stock carb.
are you able to use the electric starter on your scooter with the bbk on it w/o any issues? if not is there a way i can get that to function?
Yes, I'm still using the stock electric starter.
Will i need to mess around with the oil/gas ratio? if so, do i need to premix gas with the bbk on it? if i do, is there a way i can get the auto mixer to increase the oil/gas ratio to compensate for the bbk? If i can't, where's a good start to know how much oil/gas i need to mix for it.
No, I'm still using the stock Yamaha pump although I did run a little 50:1 premix in the tank during break in just to make sure everything was sufficiently lubed. Some people say that the stock pump won't put out enough oil for a bbk but I've got several hundred miles on mine so far with no problems.
lastly, i'm sure you're going to recommend the LV TT, but is there any other pipes you could recommend that would compliment the malossi cast iron well? idk why but i either want my pipe to be stock quiet or obnoxiously loud but no effect on the performance. im deaf so i have no idea why i want this.
I'm not sold on that pipe, it was recommended to me by a friend and it seems okay. Others say they start rusting as soon as you take it out of the box. Mine's a month old and still looks like new. The LV came with weights for the variator and springs for the clutches tuned specifically for that pipe. I liked that.
There are lots of good pipe makers out there and everyone has an opinion on which one is best. I suggest you read as much as you can here and on other forums and decide for yourself which pipe fits your plans for the scooter and how you intend on riding it. Good luck!
