So as you all know, I have the kit. Got it back this past friday and wasn't able to ride it. I was there for the final stages of putting the head on and stuff, and damn stripped the nut to the outside of the crank, so the valves are off a tad until I can get a new cover bolt (already ordered).

I will just say what I needed done to prevent creating another thread. I blew the oil ring of the old piston plus a knick in one of the compression rings. Don't really know how, but it happened. Also, the crank where the wrist pin goes in was scratched up a bit, so I got a new crank.

So here it is. I did a lot of stuff to this bike besides just the kit, which I will disclose at some other time. With the kit, I got a stage 3 cam, and the place was suppose to charge $405 for the kit and to bore out the cylinder, plus $185 for the cam (which is a hot cam). Anyway, they called me up and said I owed $490, which was awesome, it was 100 less than I though. Turns out they didn't charge me for the boring, the kit itself was $285 with out them boring it out. I also talked to the guy there quite a bit, and he is very nice and informative.

So with everything installed, I finally got to ride it. It is a lot harder to start. I dont know if it is b/c the starter is having more of a problem due to a higher compression, or if the starter is just going. It has tons more power than it did with just the big three. I was ripping around in the yard and the rear would kick loose in 3rd and 4th a lot easier, and it was way easier for wheelies as well. Overall I am pretty impressed, with the price it was about as much as it would be for just getting the OEM piston and rings. I can't think of much more to write, so if anyone has questions, feel free.

Oh yeah, it sounds a little meaner as well.

Yeah I did. Plus bigger valves, I just didn't want to get into all of it here. Kind of wanted to wait to get to a dyno.

As for the DYNO, I have been looking around here and there, trying to find one closer in my area. So hopefully in the next month or two.

Retarded, any dyno owner that turns down work doesnt want to make money. If I owned a dyno If I could get it on there I would dyno it(which is why I like the dyno shop I use- he will even dyno a bike on his car dyno).
