      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!

      Hey Dan,
        I have been trying to contact you about this too. If you are not building engines anymore, I understand. I am capable but I need a source for the parts. Please let me know as soon as you can if you are able to help. I dont want to be hasty and buy the scrappy dog GY6-200. I would rather have dependable Taida parts instead!  Please let me know.

    According to the website, the GY6-200 IS a B block:
    http://www.scrappydogscooters.com/gy6-200_GY6-B_case.html 
    The 161QMK engine is the one I think I am looking for. Id rather have it already built since I have already rebuilt my Type A over and over again about 6 times and I just dont want to deal with problems anymore. I just want something reliable with more power than stock. I have a stroker crank and performance cam and all sorts of upgrades that may have made things just a little too complicated to troubleshoot. So, I think its time to start over with an Oil cooler and if I get another car someday, I could always bore out and stroke up to 232cc if I really wanted to. But for now, I want to go for reliability.
       I have tried to call ScrappyDog scooters during PST business hours according to their phone... But, they never pick up and their answering machine is full. I also tried to call Daniel, left message and no call back yet.
    Pistonguy,
        While I do like Taida and think that would be my best option, $1300+ is just too far outside my budget right now. To be honest, I was nearing my budget with the Scrappy dog 600+ price. I know that this is going to cost me probably like 800 or so Id imagine. However, I also know that if I really wanted to, I could by the type B" block and all the trimmings minus a crankshaft for less than $500. I could assemble it easy enough but the only crank I got is 2.5mm over and I dont know how that would affect anything. Also, its from a type A block but I dont think that should matter. I could use alot of my performance parts as well. I dont know. I just wish I could buy a fully assembled motor without issues so I dont have to worry.

    Looking for a low cost GY6 180-232cc type B long complete! Help
    Hi,
     So my 180cc GY6 motor has again blown up.  I’m sick of pushing it to its limit and hoping it doesn’t break.  I want a dependable yet powerful motor that is a type b. Anyone know the lowest cost place to get one? Experienced Scrappy dogs GY6-200 motor before? Any suggestions helpful! Thx

    I am going to try and grab the pulse right from the stator as one of the YouTube videos suggested. The company is shipping me a brand new one and I get to keep the old one! so, I have a failsafe... If it blows up, I am no further away from where I am now. I have a second battery so... I will wire up the new one off the bike and just probe the stator wire to see. If I can get that to work, I will try the one installed again to see if I can get it working without having to rip apart my entire bike again!

    Yes, I saw this and knew about it before it even came in the mail. I used the pulse + (before the coil) and it showed erratic signal and then just stopped working so.. I dont know.. its cheap crap.. I guess I'll see what they say!

     This speedo is everywhere... youtube has a million videos about it... most of them show that it stinks.. Its alot of work! I still dont have it setup right but I think there is something wrong with it so, awaiting seller to help replace it. 
    Once I get the speedometer set correctly, and the tachometer working right, I will be using black RTV to make it water tight again from the rear... I just know that it will get moisture in there and condensate. But have incandesent bulbs so.. that should help too... We will see.. This will probably take a month or two to resolve.

    Tach is NOT fixed. I am still not sure what I am going to do about it but, since I need it for commuting, I had to stick it all back together... I'll look into it next weekend I hope.

    This is the story of "Hey! I have an idea! I am tired of this useless KPH speedo that does nothing for me...
    So, let me hit up Amazon and get me a new Speedometer... Sounds good right!? 
      Well friends, let me tell you, I spent about 20 hours on this thing. Got every single thing working except for the tachometer (I think I broke it by plugging it in the place they recommended - the coil +) 
       So, you want to see the results?! Well, lets start with what was there before! 

      Well, that was nice... if you live in Europe or Asia I suppose..... Well, here in the US... We do things the wrong way so...

      Doesn't look so bad right!? (Note the volt meter hide-a-way location. I made the glove box only open 2 inches, spring loaded so I can close it and lock it up when its raining. I accidentally bought a non-waterproof one so.. had to get clever... I got the idea from Daniel's V4 head video when he said that it was a must for all scooters... so... I must!)
    So, lets dig in and show you what it took!

    Fabrication! I had to hack up the original speedometer and make a bracket to hold it in place!


    Yes, I also added 150db airhorn and a 72W LED light because near ATL, they will SEE me... or if not... they will sure as hell HEAR me!!!
     
    Tell me what you think!

    It was indeed the culprit... I capped it off before I knew anything about the GY6... Now I know it likes to breathe or it will piss all over your floor if it doesnt...
