Intake Modification Services


Along with cylinder porting, intake modifications can improve the ride-ability of your machine as well as improving the power.

Through extensive research in the flow characteristics, I have learned that throttle response and horsepower are increased with the addition of a VForce3 Reed Valve System by MotoTassinari. Fuel economy is typically better as well, due to the efficiency of a VForce3 Reed Valve System.  

Rich's Venturi Diffuser System provides large, noticeable horsepower improvements, greater power at 1/4 and 1/2 throttle for 2-strokes, 4-strokes, mini bikes and ATVs. 

Following in their tradition of high technology and performance, Rich's Taylor'd Porting offers Mikuni & Keihn carbs for all your engine needs. Vintage, modern, single and multiple cylinder applications are available. We can help you choose the right carb to match the intake and porting modifications tailored to your specific needs. We are your source for rebuild and jet kits as well.

If you have any questions regarding my work (what I do) and my experience, please call me as I would be more than happy to talk with you regarding how I can meet your needs.

I have been around motocross since 4-strokes were popular the first time (1968). I started competing and riding on Hodaka dirt bikes in 1970. Wanting that competitive edge in racing fueled my hunger for increasing engine performance. I began seeking how to improve upon what I had and started experimenting with porting. Shortly after I became hooked on bikes, I also became an Automotive performance enthusiast. I attended Automotive Trade school to learn and apply performance enhancing theory to building high-performance engines.

I worked as a high-performance mechanic at Tuckers GM Performance center in Las Vegas for 24 years. All the while, I kept my hands on the grinder, working onbikes, watercraft and automotive cylinder heads.

I have been involved in just about every angle of high-performance there is. I am highly experienced in the dying art of carburetor tuning for small engines as well as automotive, single and multiple carbs both naturally aspirated and Super charged. My passion is for 2-Stroke engines and vintage engines of all makes. I personally collect and restore Hodakas and haul them with a 500 horsepower small block, 1973 chevy "work" truck.

Over the years, I have accumulated porting specs from all sorts of sources like factory racing directives, practical experience, and the one-on-one training by Harry Taylor, a renowned factory Hodaka technician and racer. You might say I'm a bit of a vintage freak and sympathetic to the needs of vintage bike owners like yourselves.

Rich’s Taylor'd Porting offers all-inclusive porting packages for all types of 2-stroke engines used in dirt bikes, ATVs, Snowmobiles, Watercraft and Shifter Karts. I do all the porting myself. I have worked with porting tools since the 1970s, porting countless cylinders and cases. All the 2-stroke porting work I perform is "complete porting" (of the cylinder and matching case), not the fake fluffy junk that most "In and Out" Porting or big time "SoCal" hop up shops offer.

I have made my reputation on porting to the individual needs and specifications of my customers. I perform all the work myself, no illegal aliens, space aliens, or third world slave labor. It’s just Good'ol, middle-aged, American labor from one of the most experienced tuners in the business, whom still actually rides motocross, dirt bikes and ATV’s.

PLEASE NOTE: Rich's Taylor'd Porting DOES NOT recommend Oiled Paper Air Filters. Although testing shows that they flow more air over stock and even more air than some other aftermarket filters, they also flow way too much debris into the engine shortening it's life span measurably. A good oiled foam filter is your best choice for protecting that valuable asset; your engine!
