My Motor Build

As some of you may have read, my beloved Honda developed a knock and now they're tearing it down to see what the cause is.

Worst case scenario - I have to put a motor in out of my pocket. I'm thinking of building something but I want to keep factory maintenance and reliability in check. I don't want to have to adjust valves after I ride it every time. What would you guys do?

I'm thinking: Stage 2 (piston, cam) Alba stuff with a ported head and throttle body.


Motor Status - Waiting on tech to do a tear down and then Honda for warranty. This will be updated as I know more.
11/20/09 - I'm responsible for labor, they're going to pay for the parts. I think i'd rather it be the other way around though...

Go with XR650 intake valves and port, TB bore and 11:1-11.5:1 and stage II or III cam. Premium pump gas and dead stock reliable IMHO. If ya need anything from me just holla!

I wish I could come across like $10k or so. I'd buy an XX and put the rest of the money into it. Fox/Elka shocks, full Alba/Dasa system, JE piston, stage three cam, PCV, +1 Burguard stem, you know, everything else...

Went by the Honda shop today and they told me they're going to pay for the parts and stick me with the labor bill, since it was "low on oil". I said, "well there has to be a reason it was low on oil." and he said "yeah, i'll have the tech call you or something". I bet this turns out interesting. Have you seen my stapler?!

I raced MX when I first bought my 700 Raptor. I cracked my frame in one of the races, Yamaha warrantied it without any problem.

Mine as well throw an 11:1 piston in while your at it.

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
