Default Re: reliability is a must!

high tensile bolts on ALL mounts (front rear motor mount, chain tensioner, etc.)us 8 grade, ideally upgraded sprocket mount (billet aluminium), greased chain, no chain tensioner or chain tensioner drilled / tacked to chain stay or spring loaded chain tensioner. run high quality oil at a recommended ratio once broken in. Break in at 24 to 1 (there is a LOT of ideas about this but this is my go-to ratio), install a fuel filter. The SBP high tensile head studs are a great option and greatly improve reliability if you take you head off often or have a high compression head. This may be a lot to start but the most important things in my opinion are the upgraded mounting bolts, safely secured chain tensioner, and fuel filter. Best of luck and ride safe MOTO
