Glad you found the info helpful Dave, I been friend with him on facebook for a while and he seems to be a straight up fella and another good source for some of the parts many of us enjoy.

I also like the heads he's making, they flow really nice with the shape of the jug and they look the be light weight and have plenty of surface for better cooling.

so i layed it down yesterday as stated above, i rode it today and it runs like **** i just got home so i haven't taken it apart yet (still too hot) any ideas what may be causing it to run like garbage? it doesn't seem to hold idle anymore and when i throttle on it runs and then almost bogs out completely.

Hehe... nice job on the bike... 53 is really respectable too... I probably would have told the cop "well the ebay kit was advertised that it would make my bike go 35" then try to play it off like I didn't know the bike was going that fast...
anyway, really nice job on a bike that runs as good as it looks.
