Dual Snap Rings

22May11

While I was in Seattle I picked up a V1 turned Puch clutch bell for the KTM conversion. This fancy item was forged deep in the liar of Seattle wizard Michael Mike. When I picked it up he gave me some wizardly advice and suggested running dual snap rings to keep the crank from walking […]


I first built this Polini bottom end 2 years ago. It was clean, but the case matching left room for improvement. Here’s the original case match. That will not stand, man. The top ports especially. Here’s an ok photo of comparing a before and after. The right channel is mostly done, and the left is […]

This weekend was epic. Dead Peds threw an amazing rally. Everyone I met was real cool and the rides were long, winding and beautiful. I got some video, unfortunately not till after some of the best parts, but you get the idea. There was a small breakaway pack of us that were blasting full throttle […]


There seems to be a lot of nervousness when it comes to building these kits. There’s not much too it, but there are some Polini tips I’ve picked up from Devin at Motion Left Mopeds, Peter, the MA community and a few little things I’ve figured out along the way. Most all of this stuff […]


yesterday i finally got the dremel collets i needed to hook up my dremel flex shaft. i was holding off porting my polini exhaust until then so i could get all the angles i wanted inside the exhaust port, making it a lot easier. a pros only porting tip i picked up from peter is […]
