231 too 260?
Can you take a 231 and make it a 260 proplus? If so i might send one off and get it converted?

Thanks

Parts
Well you're gonna need:

A cylinder
A piston
A ring
A wrist pin
A head gasket

Not sure what the exact prices are for these but the big bore 29cc kit is $129. So you gotta figure at least that plus whatever labor is involved to take your motor apart, clean it, and put it all back together with the new parts.

If you're gonna pay for this upgrade, you could go to 29cc with about the same cost as going to 26cc, so maybe its worth it to jump through 26cc all the way to 29.

Don't you think it would have more vibration out of the 29 vs the 26?

Thanks
Ivan

PS Could i buy all the parts from Hanson and do it myself just to save a little money?

I don't see why you can't

That would be easier than shipping the motor back and if you're comfortable working on motors which I'm sure you're very capable of then just go for that.

The 29cc will not shake more as the piston is lightened so its still around the same weight as a 231 piston. You'll want to get it from any engine modifier as opposed to DDM as DDM's 29cc piston is stock and too heavy hence will shake more.
