Default Porting by Computer

Rule #1: Thereís more or less a set amount of power available for you to manipulate. If you port for high RPM power then your low/mid-range power will suffer. You are robbing Peter to pay Paul.
Rule #2: You are pretty much stuck with the porting arrangement the factory put in your cylinder. If the exhaust port is single with no auxiliary ports then you are stuck with that. If your transfers have limited area then you can only widen them a little to the rear which wonít make any big difference in power.
Rule #3: Widening the exhaust port or making it more square at the top will shorten the lifespan of your rings. So when you gain something you lose something.
Rule #4: The expansion chamber controls the top RPM, not the porting. Porting can only move the power up or down in the powerband.
Rule #5: Blowdown degrees are only half of the equation. Avoid people that emphasize them without any mention of port size. True blowdown is the time it takes for the combustion pressure to fall to near zero so the intake charge can enter the cylinder freely. This is where computers come in. Depending on the piston speed (due to RPM and stroke) the time it takes can be calculated according to the open port area every millimeter down as the piston uncovers the port. This can show if you need more area/degrees between exhaust port opening and transfers opening. You can increase the area by widening the port or making the top half of it more squarish, or increase the degrees by raising the top of the exhaust port. And a computer can remove any guesswork on how much to do. Widening is preferable because raising the exhaust port reduces the trapped volume of the engine, effectively making it a smaller engine. Only the area above the exhaust port is the true engine size. For some ****ed up reason the same formula for 4 strokes is used on 2 strokes for their engine size which is the volume the piston displaces from BDC to TDC. Itís totally wrong for 2 strokes. Here is a free spreadsheet that allows calculation of your engines trapped volume: Various Spreadsheet 2 Stroke Calculators
Rule #6: The exhaust port location and size is only relevant in relation to the transfer ports. The transfers height/width control whether or not the power emphasis is for top RPM or for a broad powerband. The higher/wider they are, the more the emphasis is on high RPM power. If the exhaust port is too narrow or too low then at high RPM the pressure will still be present when the transfer of intake charge wants to happen. Delaying that transfer reduces top RPM power. A good porting calculator will help you figure out if anything needs to be done with the exhaust port according to the designated top RPM.
Rule #7: Porting is not the end all. Just as important is the jetting, the reed petal tension, the lack of air intake restriction, the squish velocity, quality of fuel and engine oil, the ignition timing, and the design of expansion chamber which can either emphasize a narrow powerband with high peak power, and a broad powerband with lower peak power.
