Default Re: My review of the GT5_A Superhawk

Well today i got my new head stids and head gasket today from SBP. I was suprized at how stiff the new head gasket was compared to the one that came with the motor. upon comparison i noticed the original was easily bendable and i guess from the torque had expanded into the cylinder and must have been brushed by the piston cuz there was a wjde flat edge around the inside. So i think the cheap hg is just another part that should be replaced right away.
So i went for about a 2 mile ride and im impressed with the smoothness of the motor and the power. It takes everything i got to not just open it up. i know that is not a good thing since its not fully broke in, but just cruizing around at quarter throttle is enough to get you going pretty good.
I can say that im happy with the motor.
in about 20-30 miles ill post how its still doing
