    My memory banks are missing some links, looking for the differences and time frames of the Komet K-11 and Komet K-55.

    Not a real expert on time lines, but the K55 came out about ’78, and is still in limited production (it is a spec class in Japan).

    Most likely the K11 was late ’80s-ish, and most likely vanished when the Parilla TT75 came out.

    The major difference is that on the K55 the reeds/carb angled down toward the bottom of the cases, where as the K11 angled up towards the cylinder for better flow.
