Hero 65cc


I've decided that this kit is just too tempting to pass up. It looks awesome, has a big magnum style fin pattern, and it's ridiculously cheap. $77. Go buy one now. If you have a stock magnum, this would bolt right up with the angled exhaust, although you might have to do some intake adjustments. Either way, I'm looking forward to messing around with this cylinder. I intend to add some material to an E50, then open up those ports nice and wide. I'll adjust my 6p to fit this exhaust port, and pair it up with a 21 dellorto on a custom intake. I know some of the Cuperteens have run these, curious what they say about them. If I like it, I might snag one for my MagnumX, and I'll bet the stock MagX intake will bolt on without too much goofery as well. They do sell the matching head, but I realized the other day I have 5 magnum heads sitting in my cylinder box, and I"m not sure where they all came from. I'm going to mill one flat and lathe in a nice squish band for the 65cc when it comes. Pictures and fun things as they come along.

My brother runs that kit with a 19mm and an estoril and it rips. He ha had nothing but good things to day about it.

yeah i ported out one of these for my brother to 'mk65'-like dimensions.

its pretty much a good hunk of metal to make a cylinder out of, ports give mad potential though.

Apparently these are good enough cylinders for everyone's brother.

I would have given you my unused one if you would have know that I had one.... hahahaha

I dont think its worth the money unless you put alot of work into massaging the ports.

I just need to assume if it's a go-fast item for Puch, West Seattle has 2 of everything, and one for parts.
