Glixal 170cc Big Bore Kit

I know, I know it isn't a Taida or NYC big bore kit but I have a question about the Glixal. Has anyone been able to install this kit on a 150cc without having to bore out the case? I know the difference in quality but if they are all 61mm pistons why would one fit but not the other? I have heard that some people have purchased this kit without having to bore out the case. I was hoping that my Tao Tao Lancer 150 was one that didn't have to be bored.

Well after a little research I answered my own question, The Glixal's outer sleeve d. is 65, so boring is a must. Not doing all that, so I just purchased the Taida 61mm (block a) from MartinMopeds.com. At 62.7mm it should slide right in. I know Dan swears by Taida, just hoping that sleeve holds up.

Hey there Kachi's Kid, welcome to the forum, I have a 125cc A block, and first used a Glixal big bore kit without having to machine to take me up to 155cc, but the kit was designed to be installed without boring the case. I had great success with the kit, I ran it for months till one day the case bolts loosened from vibration and lost all the oil. It wasn't any fault of the Glixal kit. I had to replace the cylinder and piston though, everything got destroyed.

I replaced with a drop in Taida 155cc, and it is great. I also got a matching performance head to go with the cylinder with larger valves and runners, it is well worth the money. I've been running this combo for a few months now and pound on the engine daily. I run at WOT for around 15 to 20 mins to and from work, between 90-100km/hr. and the cylinder and head take it really well. 

I may move up to a 61mm kit in the future, but considering I have the smaller A block, I will have a thinner skirt than what you have with your B block, reliability may become an issue in my case considering the riding conditions.
