    Hi and welcome, Tony.

    Dunno if this helps, or perhaps you already knew this, but the engine/transmision unit of the Italejet 180 is exactly the same as the Gilera 180 Runner, so anything that applies to the one, applies to the other.

    And if you need it as a reliable ride, buy a spare cylinder and pistons because any 2 stroke with serious modifications will do a piston and cylinder occasionally.

    Its not fair to expect a good mechanic to keep it reliable without basic spares in your kit. And don't expect an agent to hold parts like that incase you need them.

    it rides ok now but would realy like to squeeze more power out of it, i know with some work they are can produce about 28bhp around there...

    any other 2stroke tuners in melbourne worth looking at!!

    The thing about 2 stroke tuning is they are all different so engineers and mechanics develop one engine type at a time. 

    Its unlikely you will find someone in Australia who has raced the 180 engine so anyone doing those modifications will be following someone's modifications overseas.

    We are a long way from countries that race scooters so its unlikely anyone has close knowledge of the 180 engine.  They will have general knowledge of what to do and what should happen but even the best engine builders have the odd meltdown once your pulling big power from a small engine.

    And if you find someone who says its easy, run, runaway quickly.

    Just bought my second one.

     While they do mod up nicely they also wear out quicker. The best mechanics are European ones that have moved here.
