Hi.

My Mito needs a rebuild, the crank and everything.

And I`m wondering, should I buy a new original (or mitaka kit), og should i go for a Polini?

If so, 160 or 165cc ?

much better quality than any mitaka stuff and im not a fan of big bore kits and people seem to be having problems getting them set up properly. so all in all an original cylinder is better in my eyes.

AFAIK a 162cc kit will not be balaced properly as the balancer shaft is sized for a 125cc piston, you will get increased rate of wear on all your bearings.

Everything for 162cc kits is more expensive than the 125cc version as well.

I would reccomend getting a 125cc cylinder tuned properly, it would be much easier to look after.

actually in Oz all the 160 stuff is cheaper, but only just. however having done the conversion and dealing with all the issues etc, if you just want to ride ur bike and keep it on the road stick with 125. easier all round. and stick with OEM parts.
