Thanks a bunch to everyone who has put up supportive comments, and all my new 'followers.' Knowing people are reading this should motivate more frequent and better posts. Check out the new one on port mapping, and check back for the rest of the writeup on the Ciao. Its getting pretty out of control adding additional boost ports and really pushing the limits of that bizarre little motor. Some midwest moped racing is in the works, and even though its at a disadvantage without a variator (i'm not putting one on, either) it should be pretty dangerous with a powerful engine and light weight.
Also, props to 1977 Mopeds who mentioned this on their facebook. Check out their blog and buy some stuff, cheapass!
