Default Re: blueprinting not hotrodding

i agree. new motors i install, i match the ports, lap the head, remove all casting flash, clean up the transfer ports in the case and the jug, and basically blueprint them.

i've done it enough so i know what works for the motors i have, and haven't bothered with trimming piston skirts or drilling holes in the carb, rejetting, or whatever irreversable, potentially damaging mods that other people are so keen on, and all my bikes run smooth, mostly vibration free, and i'll put them up against anyone else's "hotrodded" bikes anyday.
