I do a little porting before it ever goes on a bike.

My oldest and highest mileage engine was bought on ebay from boygoesfast back in the fall of 2009 and its still running great, not a real high mileage engine but ithas well over 2000 miles on it now.

Its a lot to do with setting it up right, using a quality oil and the right mix and dont try to blow it up or you will....

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
