It's been a long time since the last aluminum cylinder for the large small frame models left the halls of Pinasco! The wait is over at last! Once again you can show your 3.00-10 tires to an admiring world.
PARMAKIT has brought the legendary Pinasco Direct Intake Kit back to life! Thanks to support from Italian racing champion Stefano Scauri, this cylinder kit has been brought up to date! For those who value a classic old school small frame cylinder in revised form to fit modern demands.
The ideal beginner cylinder for small frames with performance from 12-16 hp, depending on modification.
The motor casing must be modified, but does not need to be welded in the first level of modification. The manifold is designed for Vespa V50/PV/ET3 models When used in Vespa PK models, the driver passage will need additional modification. With central spark plugs, the spark plug opening in the cylinder cap must be aligned.
Conclusion: wide range of uses, depending on level of tuning, from daily motor scooter fun to sporty cruising.

"Sweet aluminum cylinder.... perfect for those who love small frame Malossi direct intakes. Transfers are very similar except for the boots, the pistons show more durability. Transfers cannot be milled out quite as far as the Malossi. The inlet manifold is bombastic."
