Lambretta Race-Tour Cylinder head, 125-250, square head, without cowlings, centre plug, MB


This is our original special heat treated aluminum cast oversized center plug head.

The biggest and best cooling head on the market.

It is designed to fit without a head cowl. Originally these heads were made for racing and sprinting but over the years have been used many times on high powered road engines with no ill effect because the size of the head the engine cools better. These are pre-machined with stud holes and center plug to suit 200 large block casings. You can take this head fully machined to suit or take these part machined and you can finish off the combustion chamber and squish your self (this will be a reduced price)

These heads are machined to order so please confirm specification when you order

  • we need to know the piston used
  • and diameter
  • any other another pointers you require

This is not an MZ head it is an MB head there is a massive difference!

Tim B on 16 Jul 2018 asked "Always looking out for cheeky upgrades without opening ports and fitting bigger carbs and expansion boxes. And after riding and keeping an eye on the temp with my tiny SIP gauge. I noticed how high the temp went when slow or stationary (sensor on cowal nut) After looking at the cowal especially the right side I thought how crap it seemed to be so was actually looking for a better cowal and saw this head so thought it might make a good cheeky upgrade with its central combustion chamber. (Removing shocker to get plug out is no real bother as I can’t remember the last time I took plug out) I use my scooter, almost daily and in London too, happy with Indian cylinder, Reed valve and 25mm carb so not going kit route for now but get very twitchy with left hand on clutch incase of nips. Would this head be a reasonable thing to do for my sort of riding or are there better ways to cool a cylinder. The standard cowal to my mind looks counter productive, think I’d use the flywheel side part of cowal to direct air to cylinder but bit the rest. Seeing as the cowal design in 50 years old when no computer modelling was around and not only your head comes machined to suit a piston with combustion- compression reduced to help with modern fuels it seems a no brainer to give it a try, maybe I’ve got no brain :-)"

MB Scooters Ltd replied: Customers do use these heads and they do really remove the heat from an engine, and I know a few who use them in cities. The basic cowling design isn't bad and works very good in traffic and cities, probably better than a big head with no forced cooling. Personally I would fit one of our CNC heads these will remove heat just as good and still use the cowls.

Richard G on 18 Jun 2008 asked "I have a question about "Cylinder head 125 - 250 without cowlings centre plug" I would like to order one for a race bike running an RB22 but was concerned about squish etc. What do you normally recommend and how long would it take to get it delivered? Many thanks Rich G"

MB Scooters Ltd replied: It all depends on what you want, ideally aim for 1 -15mm squish clearance.

I would use no head gasket, which will give what seems like well over the top port timings but this will give maximum power.

We can aim for a good compression ratio but always comes down to the customer and how the engine is finally set up.

These heads are usually done within a week when we know your requirements.
