After much success with Piaggio crankcases, Malossi completes the task: Aluminium Ø47 BIG D.E.P.S. Cylinder and Head Kits are now available again!
The only CIAO/SI cylinders on the market with a split exhaust port and symmetrical transfer ports!!!!
Threaded type exhaust header offers two major advantages:
- Increased strength and the possibility for replacement due to failure.
- Possibility to increase the exhaust size hence increasing the performance.
These results are possible due to a smaller decompression valve, compared to the Piaggio original, which is supplied with the kit.
Centred, hemispherical combustion chamber.
Malossi aluminium BIG D.E.P.S. cylinder kits are the best balance between component performance and component durability! The BIG D.E.P.S. are designed and manufactured with the specific objective of obtaining high combustion efficiency, long life, and a reliability that suits the Malossi name.
Owing to the experience gained in the preparation of cylinder kits for racing, Malossi engineers have developed the thermodynamics of the aluminium cylinder kit to the fullest and designed the inner fluid mechanics of the cylinder kit with fanatical precision (see the transfer ports, exhaust and combustion chamber), thereby obtaining a high level of turbulence in the combustion chamber. The latter has permitted a substantial reduction in consumption and a drastic reduction in exhaust emission pollutants.
