    Get one of those Kegra 190 kits on it, then it would be insane!

    Really like it, perfect for rallying!

    They'll run past 10k rpm (off the clock on most tachos), power band comes in at around 6k (where a p2 runs out!) and should easily match TS1's. However they are practically unusable at round town speeds and I can't imagine clutches will last long on them

    Firstly, i'm only a little journey from southend (where kegras is) and i might look into that, although if they are shite for traffic it wont really be appropriate lol. And don't know about the crash bar - it was on there when i bought it BUT, i did go into the back of a mini van at like 30?

    That kid sounds like madness! I want one hahaha

    They're not cheap mate - first off you'll need a 172 barrel to be bored out and relined, a jet ski (IIRC) piston, crank mods, cases ported/general setup and much better clutch etc etc. I'd start with a 172 first Shocked

    Reedvalves on T5s are a waste of time IMO unless you get them done properly (inlet properly machined and setup rather than just one of the bolt on kit) and once you've done it you canny change it back so unless you're sealing pads shagged I'd avoid it.

    I keep reading conflicting things, i thought reed valves (done properly with full circle inlet) were meant to be great on a t5. Whereas not much point on a P200.

    cheers for the advice fella, i will bare it in mind if i ever do decided to kit up my t5, but tbh with you i have all intentions of keeping it nice and standard because my true love is lambretta's and this is just a stepping stone towards my nice SX or TV Wink.

    But i'll probably keep the ice and reliable t5, just becuase you can never have too many scooters imo!

    As I say I've been told if you get them set up on the cases like this:

    http://chequeredpast.piczo.com/tuning?cr=7&linkvar=000044

    then you'll get a decent result, but with the malossi bolt on kits then you won't get that much out of it. It's got something to do with getting the reed petals as close to the crank as possible. If you have a look on squaretails there's a lad from Leeds who's had the above done on his T5 with a standard barrel and it goes like shit off a stick

    Yeah, i think the working bit is probably the main thing that makes me a bit reserved about touching the engine!
