Exclamation Airsal aluminium quality issues: not cheap, not cheerful either.

Derbi EBS/EBE/D50B0/D50B1 engines:

*Inferior threaded connections need fiber washers and/or PTFE tape. Some cylinder heads are unusable from day 1.

*Exhaust port machining not deep enough, not wide enough either. Pictures tell a thousand words.

Rant over.
