The new flask is immediately noticeable. Here a piston ring keeps the combustion pressure in check. The piston has not undergone any further changes. In the 1-ring variant, the piston ring sits in the same place as the upper piston ring in the 2-ring variant.

The length of the piston skirt is also identical to that of the piston in the 57mm stroke variant. When assembling with a 60mm stroke crankshaft, the length of the piston skirt must also be taken into account with the 221 to avoid hitting the crankcase.

As a replacement for the piston with one piston ring, the normal piston with two rings can also be used.



Malossi 221 012Malossi specifies a compression ratio of 98,3: 10,5 for the 1mm cylinder, which is slightly longer. The cylinder head is borrowed from the little brothers MHR210 and Sport 210 and is centered with bushings on the cylinder to the bore. We also quickly looked at the heights of the canals. Since the overcurrent channels on the right and left were not identical, we have entered the mean value here as 47,2mm.

The outlet width is a good 63% in the green area. The moderate chord size and the large corner radii make the piston ring

make life easy and make the cylinder a permanently reliable service provider even on longer tours.
