I thought the same thing about the twin mufflers. I got excited, then let down.

Nice Pictures. I am no longer hesitant to tear mine down. Anything specific to watch our for??
Yeah just make sure when your putting the motor back together at four in the morning that you have the piston valve reliefs on the right side. That way the next morning when your thinking more clearly you don't have to tear the head off again to double check. Ask me how I know. :eek:hno: And knowing ahead of time if your new cam has the decompressor already on is nice. The xx cams have a pressed on cam sprocket mount and we didn't have access to a press over the weekend. So.... we had to get extremely creative with a couple of c-clamps, a 24" crescent wrench, and a big f'n hammer! :lol:

Thanks for the heads up. I will make sure I take your advise. Time to tear down and send parts to Alba. Can you elaborate on the cam chain mount? Do you mean the cam sprocket?

Yeah i meant cam sprocket mount. Its pressed on. You have to remove it to get to your decompression mechanism. Be careful not to loose the tiny spring between the cam and decompressor.

lol, yeah twin pipes would be seriously custom on this bike, but yeah all the stuff on the left of the pic is for crisco's rappy. hope to get her on the dyno either wednesday or friday, then out for a ride on saturday.

pretty much what crisco said were the big ones. just take lots of pictures so u can look at them and see where stuff goes back if your not sure, and make sure to download or buy a service manual.

Great job! Did you get your pc3 map figured out?
no, just gonna spend the extra time on the dyno to get her mapped.

Can the cam be removed without removing the sprocket by loosening the tensioner?
not sure what the point would be. the chain is pretty tight as is, and the tensioner only adds a little pressure. plus u have to put the sprocket on the new cam if its a hot cam. just tie the chain up to the frame so it doesn't fall down into the block.

Well I was planning on the following:
Head port & polish
Valve job, Just 5 angle cut
Stage 2 cam
11:1 piston
Throttle body bore.

Tearing her apart as I type

I had Alba do my first build and IMO you can get much better work done for a better price with other builders. You may already have your mind made up but I just wanted to give you a heads up.

Where to? Just getting ready to pull the valve cover! Alba gave me some good discounts (I think) after I told him that I was part of this forum. Did you guys hear bad things about them?

I went with Daniel from high desert dyno (dl700) on my second build and could not be happier with his work and prices. He has great customer service and a much faster turnaround time than Alba did. I would recommend Daniel @HDD over Alba.
