    I'm sure Gilerarunner.net will have some information on it.

    I apologise if advertising other sites is not allowed but its relevant.

    Interesting, but too cheap.. And we all know the saying "Buy cheap, buy twice" and "Pay peanuts, you get monkeys"

    Probably just another cheap chinese cylinder kit TBH, Malossi charge £250 for a reason ;)

    PM tuning ran one on test .. mentioned the castings a bit rough in the exhaust ports but they reckon pumped out 22bhp and overall it was OK..

    NGF Performance 172cc 65mm Alloy Cast Nicasil Cylinder Kit
    by PM Tuning Racing Products Ltd on Thursday, 22 September 2011 at 08:57

    NGF Performance 172cc 65mm alloy cast nicasil cylinder kit - based on a well known established kit but for around half the price. This kit is aimed at customers working on a budget, the kit offers great value for money and comes complete with piston kit, cylinder head, viton "O" rings, base gasket, and fitting instructions. £126.97, to order please contact sales on 01524 850800.

    “We tested a sample of this kit back in 2010 running on Castrol TTS on a well set up Gilera Runner with a PM59 exhaust, 25mm carb kit, PM variator kit and PM race crank. OK - the internal port finish may not be the smoothest we have seen, however this did not really affect the way the kit ran. The results were very pleasing giving a genuine 22HP at the rear wheel with a nice wide spread of power and greater over-rev than the stock 180 setup. After running the kit for over 3000 miles we carefully inspected the condition of the kit; we were amazed to see how well the bore, piston, and rings had held up. All previously noted tolerances had hardly changed and the piston still looked like new.”

    Full kit complete with fitting instructions £126.97, to order please contact sales on 01524 850800.

    Well, cheap and cheerful. I mean how can you resist at that price! thats 70cc sport money :O
    i would personally buy one if i didnt have the money at the time its a massive bang for buck if its port map is same as the malossi!

    Re: NGF 172 CYLINDER KIT

    Bought one of these kits about a week ago, they are made very badly (chinese) and have a very very thin layer of nikasil. They have the exact same port map as malossi though, but if your thinking of getting one then you will have to go over the ports with a dremel as they are very rough.

    So once the ports had been sorted I tried fitting it and the holes on the barrel was'nt drilled out big enough so it would'nt fit on the engine, so I then had to drill them out so it would fit, and whilst fitting the kit one of the skirts on the barrel actually fell off, so after sorting that out, I tried fitting the head and turns out that it also has not been made to fit and the bolts only screw on a tiny bit so had to sort that out aswell.

    Finally got the bike back together and started it, it does have good power the same as malossi if not better, so just going to see how long it lasts.

    But to be honest I would'nt recomend buying one, I would much rather pay the extra for a malossi.
