Airsal was founded in 1986 after twenty years of experience in the manufacturing of cylinder's for motorcycles and mopeds. They are located in Spain only 30km from Tecnigas. Airsal is a major producer of cylinders and bore kits under contract for popular names such as Metra Kit, Droppler, Conti and Bidalot.
Their expertise in the manufacture of aluminum cylinders using the Scaniment (Nickel-Sillicon Carbide) process has made them one of Europe's leading producers. This is an extremely hard cylinder plating that resists wear considerably better compared to conventional cast iron cylinders. This combined with the benefit of aluminum for better cooling makes this a very durable cylinder.
Airsal produces stock 50cc replacement or 70cc conversion cylinder bore kits with the venerable T-6 configuration. With the T-6 in the 50cc version performance is as good or better than the majority of 70cc cast iron cylinders.
The T-6 in the 70cc is a very strong performer due to the increased port area allowed by the bridge exhaust. The wear resistant single chrome-moly design allows reliable high rpm operation without the risk of shattering or fatigue. Used with the correct exhaust system and carburetor this cylinder works extremely well on all brands of scooters. This modern technology gives excellent reliability for everyday use. Properly ported and modified the track potential is easily there for the racing enthusiast.
Our own T-6 mileage testing is at 11,000 miles and still going strong! Engine rpm has almost always been at a consistent 9500-10,000 rpm and peeks at 11,500 wide open!
Airsal while also having the facilities for the manufacturing of pistons and cylinder heads that are capable of producing over 14,000 units a month makes this company a very strong contender. Airsal is also one of the few companies in Europe that is willing to make products for our US market. We had asked late last year about the possibility of a Kymco Super 9 cylinder to be produced. The cost versus the performance of the Malossi unit was not to our standards. Due to Airsal's responsiveness we now have this cylinder available for our customers.Tweet
