I'm not bitching about the carb. I just wondered since companies have put so much into engine design modifications, if there's some reason why they don't tinker with the carb?

Maybe the Walbro/Tilletson/Etc designs are good enough as they are, I don't know.

That's why I asked....

FI would be nice, I'm sure one of the engine companies is working on it. It's not impossible and relatively simple. Back before they even thought of FI on jetski's, I use to take carb'd jetski's and convert them to FI for racing.

The flat spot is for a wrench to remove the prop shaft. It is threaded into the hub. Makes for cheap repairs if you nose over and bend the shaft

Do they make wrap around headers with a 25mm drop that most of the common 50cc planes need to run cans/pipes??

mintor does make beautiful headers and cans for there engines. and can make them in any size,drop or bend. at a very reasonable price. i had a set made for my carf yak and the look awesome like the rest of the engine and even have nice machined smoke ports installed. and not event kidding i got them in less than a week of order. the reliability is awesome and just as good as a old da (50,100,150). the power is outstanding and sound of the tuned cans are great. all the R&D shows with the rpm achived. just stuck a 29x10s mej on my 110 today and got 6300 rpm. after some slight adjustments.

I'm expecting a limited number of the Mintor 60cc's this coming week, probably mid to late week. Some are already spoken for, but there will be some available for purchase. If you don't see the 60cc on the website(order online), you can call to order. We will update the website soon.
