AF Rayspeed 200cc & 225cc Rapido Kits
| The"Rapido" cylinder kit from AF Rayspeed is an affordable high quality "touring" kit. It was designed to bridge the gap between stock cylinders and high end racing kits such as the TS1, which requires some fairly radical modifications to the scooter's engine (and in some cases the frame).
By contrast, the Rapido kit will fit a standard 200cc engine with no modifications. It can be run with a stock carburetor and exhaust system, or better yet with a moderate sized carb and a performance exhaust system, without having to remove the battery tray from the frame or cut away large portions of the cooling shroud to clear the intake and exhaust manifolds, as is necessary with TS1 kits.
The 200cc kit actually has more intake timing than the 225cc kit, and is therefor best suited for use with a larger carburetor in the 28-35mm range and relatively low gearing (4.90:1 maximum 4th gear ratio) to allow it to rev out and reach peak power. The 225cc kit has more conservative intake timing, and as such is an excellent choice for a 'torquey', low revving engine with tall gearing and a moderate sized carb. This makes for an awesome setup for pulling hills, riding two up, etc., and can be used with 4th gear ratios up to 4.4:1 as found in TV200 models.
