75cc conversion advice

Post  Creative Native on Sat Mar 04, 2017 9:43 am

Hi,
I've recently undertaken a complete re-build of a LUI 50CL for the missus. I'm now at the stage where the engine will be stripped down and converted to 75cc, with parts obtained from Rimini. However, when scanning through their website, I was confronted with the option of a 75cc inlet manifold and engine cowling.

Will both of these be necessary, or will my existing 50cc manifold and engine cowling be suitable?

I apologise for the simplicity of question and appreciate the help.

I'm afraid I don't have any direct experience of this kit so may be talking my usual nonsense!
But I would imagine the inlet manifold you have is tiny but with plenty of meat / room to expand to match the port on the new kit. Potentially any inlet you buy will need some of this but obviously not to the same extent. If you are handy with a dremmel; this is straightforward.

Also I have no idea about the engine cowling but why not see if it fits? I would guess RLC head cowling isn't pennies so if you need a new one, shop around! At the very least, a Sunny one from SCooter Restorations would fit and if there is extra space between head & cowling, this should be less of an issue with an alloy kit unless it is thrashed mercilessly!
Just my best guesses!

I dont have one of the kits either..but I don't think you have to change the inlet if you are keeping your Lui carb. I've never read of someone doing HAVING to change carb to use the kit, although people do, so i assume the old manifold will fit.
