I'm just curious: has anyone done port work, tuned expansion chamber, aftermarket carb, crank balancing or aftermarket centrifugal clutch mods to this engine yet? I'm curious to this engine's longevity, stock and at higher hp; then potential hp that can be achieved. The head and cylinder are 1 piece, but I'm sure that there is another 2 stroke cylinder that is close enough with port timing, piston pin location, stroke and bolt spacing that maybe a larger cylinder can be used as a "big bore" kit with a little modification. It seems these engines didn't really make it as a big hit, aftermarket parts are almost non existent. Hell, I haven't seen a single vid running anything but full stock. This engine seems to have potential, but it seems folks aren't really willing to dive into the unknown, especially when our current well known bicycle 2 stroke isn't really that reliable and it may be too expensive on an unknown that may be an expensive paperweight in no time flat. I would hit the new frontier but alas, lack funds for unknowns. It would be nice to not have to pedal or pull start. The onboard electrics would make headlight, turn signals, tail and brake light much easier to deal with since it charges as you ride. I just wish someone has tried at least an expansion chamber on it, it might be better than most current kit 2 strokes in nearly every aspect...except weight.
