    It’s had the squish band cut, base cut, port timing altered (exhaust intake and upper transfers), ports widened / reshaped, ignition timing advance and a muffler mod. Here’s some pics of the squish band before and after and the muffler mod.

    A couple of saws I’ve just finished. Found a recipe I’m liking for the 550xp mark II. That MS440 is a clean saw, not done much work. Nice to work on them as they’re getting rarer.
  4. I might have a 572 available, let me check something in the morning. I had someone ask me about it and I just want to confirm if he’s taking it or not. I can also get adjustable carb MS462s if you’re interested. If it was me I’d have a ported 572. Or a 372 but that wasn’t one of the choices. [emoji23]

    Yeah I spoke to someone about this recently. £500 was a bargain. I can do some slightly better prices off eBay but unfortunately not that cheap.

    I can get these if anyone is interested.

    Looking forward to it. [emoji106]

    This will be going under the knife very soon.

    More pipes [emoji16] The bigger ones for a 372 big bore with a 272 piston I’ve built. Will see how it runs.

    Can’t beat a couple of pipes in the morning [emoji23]

    I had thought the original post about not much gains and just noise was about a bark box. If you pipe it the wee saw wakes right up.

    Yeah there’s big gains opening up the 2511 muffler. It’s a totally different saw.

    Nothing wrong with tinkering though [emoji16] can always make something better.

    Twin ports do have a nice sound off them.

    I think the original quote was about bark boxes.
