To reed or not to reed? that is the question.
I’ve just bought a Keihin PE 24mm for 12 Euros!!! ( copy and new)
But, I don’t have a manifold for it, so I’ve got 2 choices.
I use a base gasket as a template and get a local shop to fabricate a manifold for it , using photos of a Polini/Mallossi manifold as a guide. What angle should it be and what length , height etc??
I go and buy an old barrell with a reed valve from a Honda NSR, Yamaha or a Kawasaki and cut off the reed intake area(?) and have that fabricated to fit on to my engine block , again the same questions ie; angle, length and height ?
At the present time, I don’t want to split my engine cases and do the inlet porting for the reed. Would it still run okay with a reed and carb just bolted on? I know it would work better with the porting.
Any ideas ,chaps???
