EDIT APR 27: Would appreciate advice about removing right side cover
EDIT April 18 (tax day!): Finally riding again !
EDIT 11: About Max RPM
EDIT 10: COMPARING VARIATORS - K&S vs DR. PEPPER
EDIT 9: Tuning the clutch
EDIT 8: Low Cost and simple Fuel/Air Mixture system shows exactly what your tuning is
EDIT 7 - First performance report
EDIT 6: Full NCY clutch added to the mix
EDIT 5: Started up with the first push of the start button ! Lots of tuning yet to do - the carb is tuned for a much smaller engine, and rejetting is a must. but she runs!
EDIT 4: Mounting the engine! Ain't it purdy! Hope to get a test start done today, otherwise it will have to wait 'till Tuesday (personal reasons prevent moving forward unitl then).
EDIT 3: The engine arrived, but there are a number of things that yet need to be added. The pix at the end show the new stator (be SURE you check it out !!!!!!!!!!), flywheel and clutch.
EDIT 2 : The SuperEngine built by Martin's arrived. Here are a few pix. Isn't it PRETTY !!!!!!!!!
Martin's Lightspeed Scooters (aka, Martin's Scooters, LLC) has completed the build of their custom super engine for my retro scooter. Soon I'll be receiving it and figuring out how to get the scooter ready to handle the increase in power and torque.
Anyway, in this Tread you will find videos that Martin's did of each step of the build, from start to finish. They are perhaps the most informative videos showing how a GY6 engine goes together. Have any questions about how to do something? Just find the right video and it should explain.
And for the record - Martins was a true joy to work with; HIGHLY recommend!
The links are all right here, but in case anything happens to this Thread, they are all in this section of Martin's site:
My little retro scooter is getting a facelift - kind of a ToolTime upgrade. Martin's is building a balanced / blueprinted Taida super engine that will drop in and look stock (except for the oil cooler) ... but be anything BUT stock.
Parts from Taida arrive at Martin's today; engine should be done by next week.
Will keep you posted.

I was discussing with him my plan to put a 250cc water cooled Kymco engine I found into the little scoot (weeeeeeeeee !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), and Martin's SUPERFAST Scooters convinced me to go the Taida route. Will still need an oil cooler, but not all the water crap that is needed with the Kymco
Martin's Insanely Fast Scooters has started the build of the Taida "B" block super engine. It seems he is going to video the entire build process, so anyone who has an interest in what is involved in a GY6 engine build (or rebuild), .... Martin's produces videos that are perfect for a normal person (not GY6 nuclear expert) ... like me.
Awesome thread!! These videos are top notch man,,thanks for taking the time to edit and upload this series Martin,,cant wait to see and hear it run Tommy
