flat top

also the rings that came with the motor can be used, but if you used the engine before to break it in, then i wouldn't risk using the piston wist pin clips again. i have built my modded clone still have to start it and people over a oldminibike.com said that the billet rod is mandatory
Some how, I havent even noticed the lack of a billet rod. I used my wrist pin clips over...

@newrider- Really? I stand corrected- I've never seen one with plastic lobes. Now I gotta go find a pic.
@jareeB- A billet rod's probably not a bad plan, but NO, I will NOT blow a rod turning over 4k. It's bunk. Yes, the rod is a weak point, and yes, at the higher RPM the stock rod gets questionable. 4k is not high enough.

I forget where, but I have seen a plastic cam before. Do they use rollers on the end of the push rods??

well if thts how u fel then y dont u jst not by a clon cause the qualite of the cst is sht aparently mny of us hav had grate luck wth clon engins even moded 1s.

As read by Google Translator:

Well, if that's how you feel about these clone engines, don't buy a clone. Many of us have had great luck with these clones, even once they have been heavily modded. I would not shy away from one, as I know it will be well maintained (by me).

Not a problem, some issues annoy me beyond belief. I understand we aren't all fluent English speakers, but at least make an attempt.

I FINALLY had enough free time to spend a few minutes rigging this up on the test stand. When I left off months ago, I had removed both governor and low oil sensor. I literally hadn't touched it until tonite. I rigged the test stand with a fuel bottle, Loaded 'er up with 30-weight, and shot a quick vid. It's alive!
