No it wasnt odd at all, he has switched engine geometries, he built one up for himself he said right off to see how it would perform, he said all he did to his was clean up the casting slag from the ports, put one of the RT carbs on it along with one of those small banana pipe expansion chambers and one of the Puch heads he sells now bolted straight to the jug with no head gasket.

He told me he has been impressed with the performance of his, he said it has good power and is pushing his bike 40+mph comfortably with a 36T on the rear.

He told me that the balance of these newer engines is just as good as the 40mm stroke engines he was selling before, that was my main concern since the other dax engines I have are the best balanced engines I had run.

I can say that the GT5 lower I got from you has a good balance also, I was a bit concerned of how it would be when I noticed a slight amount of wobble in the crank counterweights when I spun the engine but to my pleasant surprise its a really smooth running engine, I still have some things to experiment on with it but its doing just over 40mph on the bike with a 41T sprocket, NT carb, kit exhaust slightly modified and one of the pedal chopper type heads, so I cant complain.

Im glad I flushed it out good though, I flushed out a good size piece of that wrist pin retainer clip that was still in it, it was at least a 1/4" long and would have spelled disaster if I hadn't got it out.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
