Ripmax have news of two O.S. motors that have just arrived in the UK. First up is the O.S. FSa-56 four-stroke. Sporting the new blue head design, this is the first engine in a completely new series of advanced four-stroke motors known as the Alpha series. This new '54 has increased capacity compared to the old FS-52 Surpass so giving more power and torque.
The new carb' provides more throttle control across the entire RPM range and has a constant velocity tube to prevent fuel from spitting out when accelerating under load. There are new features like incorporating the breather/oil recirculation system into the crankcase to dispense with external nipples and drain tubes.
The new O.S.Max 75AX is the fourth engine in the new AX range of two-stroke engines and fills the gap between the 61FX and 91FX. The lower crankcase dimensions are the same as the 61AX, so it will fit in all models designed for a 'sixty' size motor. It is supplied with the new and, from this writers own experience, very effective P-Box silencer.
See the Ripmax website for more information.
