Dunno what exactly that means Squizzy, but here's some more technical articles for anyone who's interested. As with the first ones, these are from a US based supplier so I've added some notes to suit Australian Stock Honda's, but everything is more or less the same.http://swedetechracingengines.com/techinfo/?cid=62993Spark Plug
Standard Size - NGK BR10EG or R7376-10
Shorty Style - NGK R7282-10
Must use the NGK TRS1225 Plug cap with short style plugs
** You must use a resistor type spark plug **
Spark Plug Gap – 0.024” – 0.028”Oil
Motul Trans Oil 10w30 or Motul Trans Oil Expert 10w40
New engine-650ml (21.9 oz)
Use 50ml less for routine oil changes ( 20.0 oz )
We recommend changing the gearbox oil every 4 hours. Oil is cheap compared to the cost of replacing clutch or gearbox parts. If possible, change the oil while the engine is warm.Two-Stroke Engine Oil
Motul Kart Grand Prix or Maxima 927
Australia Note: Many here also use Elf 976 and Castrol 747 without Issues.
32:1 for break-in and regular use (626ml per 20L )
20:1 has also been successfully used (1L per 20L)
** DO NOT USE PUMP FUEL ** Recommend VP C12 or AV GasJetting
The Stock Moto Engine for karting application will not run properly run on pump fuel. SwedeTech recommends the use of VP Racing Fuel’s C12 product.
Keihin 38mm PWM - recommended by SwedeTech
Jetting range is based on Sprint Kart setup using the SwedeTech GFS system and a 1999 cylinder combo.
160 -180 main (centre of the carb, 6mm hex ) **Recommended to start with a 182 jet and work your way down from there
Main jet supplies fuel from ½ throttle to full throttle
50 - 60 pilot ( next to main jet, use 5mm flat screwdriver to remove )
Pilot jet supplies fuel from 0 – ¼ throttle
DGJ needle - 3rd from top. Experiment with 4th & 2nd clip from top.
Needle regulates fuel from 1/8 throttle to ¾ throttle
Air Screw (side of carburettor body, above fuel inlet ) – 1 Turn
* For new engines purchased directly from SwedeTech and engines maintained by SwedeTech, we offer a jet chart to help customers tune their engine for optimum performance.Clutch adjustment
You need about 3/8" to 1/2" free play at the end of the lever lifter arm on the engine. You shouldn’t have more than 1 inch of travel when you engage the clutch lever. When the clutch lifter arm is at rest, it should sit at a downward 45 degree angle. As you engage the clutch arm, the clutch should start to have an applied load when the lifter arm is at a 90 degree angle to the case or flywheel cover.
Any more than that and the outer plate could jump out of the basket. Make sure your cables have the nylon inner housing and keep them straight and well lubricated. You should not need more than two fingers to engage the clutch.SwedeTech Quick Tips
Break-in water temperature should be 150° - 155° F (65° - 68° C)
Normal running condition water temperature between 125° - 135° (51° - 57° C)
Take the reading anywhere between the cyl. head outlets and the radiator. Do not place the water temp sensor between the radiator and the water pump
Engine will lose performance after 135° (57° C) water temp.
Overheating and engine damage can occur with temperatures past 160°
New engine break-in 15-20 laps.
New Top End break-in 12-15 laps
Increase main jet 1-2 sizes for break-in
RPM Range – 7,000 – 12,700 Top End Maintenance
Top End Kit – Piston, ring, circlips, wrist pin, bearing, head gasket, exhaust o-rings, and base gasket.
For normal use – 6 – 8 hours
For optimum performance – 4 – 6 hours
Normal use – for the recreational racer that is looking for longevity and cost effectiveness. Typical normal use includes jetting the engine on the richer side.
Optimum Performance – for the avid racer that is looking for every performance advantage. Optimum performance includes jetting the engine for best performance.
Note that the above schedule of maintenance is based on our experience. You may find that these times may be adjusted based on your needs, driving conditions, and overall engine maintenance. Many factors affect wear and tear on components.Lower End Maintenance
Lower end maintenance will require that you send the engine to SwedeTech. We recommend that this service is performed between 30 - 40 hours of use.
