  1. I just came across this, on a facebook page....does this sound right?? " All new kits are supplied with a seven stud fixing (three additional studs, nuts and washers, to ensure consistency in head location. The three studs should be fitted to the cylinder. All the newest version of the kits do not use head gaskets. You can tell this by checking your cylinder head. If this sits into the cylinder, no gasket is needed except where you need to achieve the correct squish clearance (working clearance between the piston crown and cylinder head; necessary for efficient running of the engine). We highly recommend a very thin smear of Threebond sealant where a head gasket is not used. When fitting your cylinder head, it should then be secured by strong plain M8 washers, followed ideally by our extra length M8 cylinder nuts (including the elongated nut for the purposes of securing the head cowling and as referred to previously)." Any thoughts??
  2. I found out that the Mugello kit does not come with a head gasket and seems to not require one. I guess that the crush measurement will determin if you need a head gasket and what kind you need. I tried the crush test and could not get any crush what so ever. Is this odd? If I get no crush is this bad? Here is what I found on Facebook, in relation to the head gasket.

  3. I purchased a Mugello 200 kit for my LI125. I've had it for about 1 year. Today I'm ready to install the head and noticed that I dont have a head gasket. I actually dont see that the kit ever came with one. I've looked online, looked at many Mugello 200 kits, and I dont see a head gasket pictured. Does this thing use a head gasket? Id think that the answer is yes, they alll use head gaskets, but I'm a rookie and dont know if that is true. If you need more info, let me know ant I'll get back to you asap. Thank you.
  4. QUESTION: Do I need a head gasket. I have the Mugello 200 cylinder. I can not find the head gasket. I dont think the kit came with one. When I search that product out, the photos do not show a head gasket, although other gaskets are included in the kit. Any info would be appreciated. Cheers. 🍺
  5. The flange nuts I used could be used with or without a washer. I guess that it comes down to personal experience. I'm sure there will be someone out there who thinks a washer should be used in all cases. And if I hear a good argument for adding washers to my set up I'll do it. My understanding is that a flanged nut does not need a washer, because the flange is distributing the pressure across a large area, which is what a washer does. These flanged nuts have a smooth face like a regular washer. I've had good luck with flanged nylock nuts in the past. I got all of this hardware online at BELMETRIC.COM. This website has all the metric hardware you'd ever need. They are affordable and ship fast and accurate. I was very impressed with them. My local hardware store has a good selection of the standard metric stuff, but when it comes to 7MM I had to find a source. I think that Bel Metric is a great resource. Check them out when you get a chance. Cheers 🍻
  6. Stu Aka S. Hanson!!! Thanks for the info boss, I was just about to crack the case open. Come to think of it, I dont think my chain had enough slack in it for it to fit under the tensioner. When I first installed it this item I was surprised that it came with no destructions. I didn't find much about it online either, so I just guessed. Once I do get this on the road, I'll pay attention to the case. Cheers.
  7. Welcome. I still consider myself a newbie. I bought my LI125 over 3 years ago. I'm slowly rebuilding it too. Congrats.
  8. I just saw some pics of other motor builds and realized that I did not install my chain tenssioner correctly. I put the chain over the top, but I guess that the chain goes along the underside. I'll have to swap that before I go for my first ride. Thanks LCUSA for posting good pics.
  9. OOFTA!!! This thing looks bad ass. DUDE!! After looking at your chain, I just realized that I installed my tensioner incorrectly. My first build, so I didnt know. Thanks for the photos!!!!
  10. Looked like a blast. Next year I'll be hooking into this stuff!!
  11. WOW!! All of you who went to Bonnevil are GREAT!! Thanks for sharing. Do any of you have video of your pass. I'd love to hear what your scooters sounded like. I've been to Bonneville once, and the sounds are just amazing. If you guys plan on returning again, please let us know which event you will attend. Thanks again.
