Spent ALL day ( at least 8 hrs ) on this thing again…. list of what was done.

Re-measure the squish, set it at 1mm
Re-timed Powerdynamo to conservative 1.7BTDC
Compression test = lots!
Spark = Super shocking ( numb fingers )
Air Leaks = NO
24mm Mikuni with 175 main

Fires, Idles high high high, choke off, still idle high high high
Repeat process from 165-200 main, same issue

Fuck it, idle high, adjust everything on throttle control/slide/what have you, including a new throttle and cable.
Same issue

Get confused and frustrated.
Lunch break

Take whole top end apart
Replace Vertex piston, with Gilardoni stock modified piston from V6.0 and the addition of the 2nd ring for good measure.
Base gaskets and squish EXACTLY like V6.0 ( know runner and blaster )
Copper spray head, heat gun for permatex
Go test……

Idles out of hand, wont go anywhere on any kind of throttle….. confused, started doing more reasearch, seems like I have it figured out, go back to it and get it to idle a tad lower but still screaming. UGGGGGGGGGG

Change carbs to 21 Delorto with jet ranges from 98 ( what I had in V6.0 ) to 115

By this time I have exhausted a whole day and am beyond frustrated, because seemingly everything should be working out right.
Go inside and revisit the port maps of V6.0 and 6.66, realizing that the ONLY difference is the CR80 Reeds and the intake which is now a healthy bit bigger…….

Moped monday started in 2 hrs and I had to clean up and eat a bit before riding the carped shame to the bar.

Thoughts are… Intake volume to much for Gila…. V6.0 works V6.66 does not, only difference – intake port size and cr80 reeds.

Next chance I have I am putting the V6.0 back on and riding, that one was flawless.


Other news :

Prospect Dore is now a mosquito/westseattle member, look out for him on the forums, STOKED !!!!

ALSO : Any opinions and or thoughts on V6.66 would be great, I dont really want it to die, but it just may be dead already 😦

ALSSSSO : Best farewell show I have ever been blessed to go to
