When I was working at Suzuki dealers we used to re-profile the reed stops to a (I think, can't remember) 8" or 10" diameter and about 50% more 'lift'.(just about touching case radius)  o need to polish contact area with at least 600 grit afterwards.  Make sure angle of port and reed block all match up. PE175 was first bike I ever managed a 'tail whip' on, my Yamaha 400 was way too heavy to learn on (plus I broke rear suspension trying  ;D ) I don't like thinking about it too much though, makes me feel real old (almost 40 yrs ago  :( )
hahahaha
Thanks for the advice mate will do

Engine is been rebuilt and is at the painters. Forgot to take pics sorry. Found the only 79 63.5 oversize piston in the world apparently and we are back in business. Also bought my baby a new heart.
