What size and pitch alloy would be best? The engine will come with an alloy prop of my choice. I may buy a stainless as well but want to get the best allow I can.

Am I correct in thinking alloy and stainless are not interchangeable with the same pitch and diameter, so if you switch between the two you have to change dimensions ? If that's correct and a 14P x 10 3/8 stainless is the right prop, what size alloy should I get ?

Honda dealer has suggested either 12p x 11 3/8 or 13p x 11 1/8 3 blade alloy on a bf50. What are the ribnet thoughts on this, which should I go for?

The dealer has done me a really good deal on the engine, it would be rude to ask for more discount.

if it helps, my ally prop is a silverline 3 blade 13", part no qa2076x 10 1/2" dia with a Flo-torque reflex hub kit, part no 835257q12, let me know if it's any use to you, sort something out
