    you mentioned g43 engine, i was actually gonna use that engine on my next build since ddm stocks them now, and also because there are many performance mods that are readily available for the engine through their site / and port work which i believe chris bartolone would be able to take care of that for me since i want to buy the TS reed kit which is currently in stock at ddm and it would need the porting job for proper use. i dont really want to gear higher, just want to experiment and see how well of a setup i can get with this modified g43 setup using a stock 15 tooth sprocket, consistency is really important too. im expecting to get a top speed of at least 32 mph. specific mod lists would be a new g43 engine, ts reed kit, walbro hda carburetor with a venturi of about 15mm since ddm told me the reed kit entry hole is about 16mm, so i figured a 15mm venturi would be perfect. hp filter, port work, i dont really know much about this but i guess chris bartolone should know exactly what to do for me based on my setup, tanaka 3 piece, bladez 3 stage pipe, or any end bleed pipe that fits on a bladez with little to no modification, black magic clutch spring, and thats pretty much it that i can think of. oh and i forgot about the gas tank portion, im gonna mount the original gas tank that goes with this engine, just like grandpaglyn did on his bladez cruz'r with g43 engine.

    i currently have a tanaka 47r engine in great condition, i bought it off from someone else who said it only went through a few tanks with the bladez scooter which i bought complete with it, at first when i got it, it appeared to run sluggish and a few days later had backfired a lot and i could not get it to start, i inspected the engine, it had rust on the flywheel magneto a little bit, and a lot on the ignition module leggings, so i cleaned it up a bit using sand paper, used a small flat washer in between fan cover and module, new bolts, i ordered a new base gasket, new muffler gasket, cleaned the top of the piston a little, new fuel filter in gas tank, new pulse line, cleaned the carburetor, new spark plug, put fresh new 91 octane fuel using about a 42:1 gas oil ratio and within a few pulls, the engine fired, came to life, warmed it up and it ran great, and its showing no problems up till now. i fixed it yesterday. im looking to sell this tanaka 47r engine for 250 dollars or best offer shipped or picked up for a little less so i can move on to this g43 setup hopefully.

    ya, those settings are not gonna work at all, extremely lean. i tried 1 1/4 on the low and 1 on the high, the engine fired for a few seconds, gave it some gas and i immediately knew it was running very lean from how hesistant it was running, shut it off, tried to start it with slightly richer settings, wouldnt start at all, i had to go all the way back to my original settings which were about 1 1/2 on high and about 2 3/4 on the low, worked fine at those settings. the engine actually runs pretty smooth at these settings with almost no bog, i also checked the spark plug tip and it is basically light brown so im pretty sure these settings are adequate. if i were to adjust it for slightly better performance, it would probably be 1/8 - 1/4 more, any more and it would probably affect performance for the worse. i just dismounted the engine btw, getting ready to sell it so i can maybe move on to the g43 setup as my next setup.

    my tuning may be off slightly, but it does run fairly well and only has a little bog on low end which like i mentioned, may be from the pop off spring issue with these carburetors and the carb itself being pretty big for just a 46.5cc engine. there may be also other smaller factors preventing optimum performance and top speed but i dont think there would be a huge difference in top speed, i would say if everything is adjusted within range or close enough, i should be getting about 32 mph or so, after all, they did put the top speeds of these things around there when they made them and i think im getting just around there too, i am suprised though that you hit 38 mph with that setup you just listed. im gonna go give the scooter a test ride tomorrow and see what my top speed will be on flat ground, i weigh about 130 pounds btw.

    well i just came back from the test ride and the gps said 31 mph, again, my tuning may not be perfect and there could also be smaller factors preventing the best top speed and performance, but in my opinion, i think 31 mph is about accurate for a bladez with tanaka 47r / 15 tooth stock gearing. i dont want to mess with the carburetor settings much because the engine runs fine right now and im scared that if i make it leaner, it will affect the reliability and may not change the performance, i have about 2 3/4 on the low and about 1 1/2 on the high. i did notice that the few people that owned tanaka 47r's would have the settings leaner on both so im open to recommendations for this / what other people's settings were and its possible that i may be able to get another mph or so from better tuning and just better overall engine responsiveness, one thing that concerns me on the engine tuning is the idle screw portion and how much would this affect performance. i think it idles fine but my other concern is the relation between the idle screw and low end speed because these two can make the engine run sluggish i suppose if one is not adjusted in proportion to the other, the high end is also a factor because its possible that the low end settings are affecting the top speed / high end settings. so yeh, i guess i will have to experiment more and see what is the best setup, least bog, most responsiveness and check the spark plug for a general idea of how rich or lean the engine is running.
