    GY6 Cam Chain breaking / master
      When I first started getting into stroking the GY6, I read somewhere that you could break the cam chain and extend it to allow for spacers or whatever. I sort of ignored that since I knew I was going to have block open, I would just replace chain. Well.... I am no looking into cam chain breakers and master links....
      I CANNOT FIND MASTER LINKS FOR CAM CHAINS ANYWHERE!!!! Anyone know where I can find them!!?

    mounting holes are same. 
    I know... I plan on dremeling out the port a bit. Then polishing. I won’t get too adventurous because I can’t allow it to fail. Well see!
    thanks

    Well, after putting together my gasket sandwich, I discovered that the 45 link chain is just too tight to allow the cam to sit flat on the valve head. So, I ordered a new gasket set (again) a 46 link cam chain and an A10 cam based on David Bullocks suggestion. Just wait! I will upload some pictures once some more parts arrive!
    thanks! I’ll try to share more as I get further

    Well..... much has happened since this post! I ordered a SSP-G 180cc power kit (Taiwanese b block with oil cooler). Spoke with David Bullock who sent me a genuine OKO 30mm jetted with a new manifold and uni filter. Also ordered an a10 cam, 46 link chain (since i have a stroker and need to triple up on my gaskets). I am hoping this will be the trick and I can start depending on it instead of worrying and Hoping it won’t explode. 👦🏻

    I spoke to so many people about my situation and have decided on a solution. I went was the SSP-G 180cc Power kit (made in Taiwan) it comes with a type B block case and everything you need (minus a few parts fro a donor motor) to switch everything over. David Bullock has built and jetted a new 30mm OKO carb, intake mani and Uni cleaner. I am still 2.5mm over stroked. I needed a 46-link chain to accommodate a gasket sandwich (3 base gaskets) for clearance. Went with A10 cam as recommended by David. My CVT was reflect and worked for me so I kept that. When it’s done, I’ll post it!
     
     PS look in my pictures, I found a great use for old worn out tires. Works perfect for putting your engin block on while building it.

      I wish I could. However, the cost to insure a cycle where I live is about 42$ a month where a scooter is 7$ a month. I only use it for a 2 mile commute for work. I would love another bike but... well, I really would rather get a car instead. LOL. 
       Now:
     
    I got the kit. I am also going to upgrade to a 30mm carb. Currently I have a 26mm but I think it is at the end of its band. Has anyone had any experience with a NIBBI? they look nice but I know that could be deceiving. Should I just stick with OKO or CVK? ANy advice on intake manifolds? 
       I appreciate it guys!

    well, I️ tried to call ScrappyDog and also Dan... nobody picks up or returned calls.I couldn’t even leave a message for scrappydog. Gy6store is in N.C. and picked up when I called. I know this is an inferior product compared to Taida but... it’s half the price. And that’s about all I can afford. I wish that i could get the taida but man.... the b case alone is almost 500 beans. Crazy!   Should I hold out of just get the kit!!??

    IT BLEW UP! What now!?
    So, my GY6 with 63mm 2.5mm stroker threw a valve and exploded the top end. I REALLY dont want to just throw a new head on it at this point. Thinking of going over to a Type B block which will require a new cylinder, head, cam chain, gaskets, oil cooler. 
        I am thinking I might be able to re-use my crank and most other internal parts. Am I wrong? 
      Also, will my A09 or A12 cam be okay to use on a taida head? Or should I bite the bullet and spend like 80-100$ on a taida T300 cam?
    Could I re-use my "too small for it" 26mm Carb without a problem (Yes I know I will not be running efficiently till I upgrade it but.. baby steps)?
      Anything else? I dont need to upgrade to a 8200 Crank at this point since I really dont care if its 232cc or not... I am trying to save as much money as possible. TRYING to keep it under a grand. 
     
     *pictures: how does that even happen!? I guess I didn’t have enough of a spacer for the stroker. Love and learn.
     
     Ideas? THANKS ALL!
