I'm sure some of you guys have done the same.
I don't think a longer kicker arm on a 2 stroke 80cc engine like in this scenario would allow you to spin the engine faster do you?

I think there is a terminal length for our purposes depending on the requirements.
Too short, you can't generate enough force or speed.
Too long and force is easily applied but speed is lost.

Oh by the way, project is looking great Monte.
Not relative?? How can it not be relative? Your 80 has 6.6% of the displacement, it's 6.6% relative- but probably not much more than that.

Apples and oranges anyone?

Congrats Monte ! A 4 5/8 is my favorite motor for a lot of reasons.

You're gonna have a fun summer. It's a shame the blvd. isn't full of Z-1's anymore.

Feeling a little motivation for the 86" yet?

That's funny, one of the first things I remember about my stroker in 1976, was looking for Z-1's and other "street rockets" of the day.

exciting to hear about your first voyage,M3. after it's broken in,you're going to love it when the front wheel lift's a,foot off the ground when you nail second gear.
