i can only say that I have never owned one of the motors they supply but from what i have seen, all of the mods that are done can be done easily by you. There may be no need to pay the extra price for a kit if you can do some work with common garage tools. I surely do not mean to disrespect a company or their product. Just my opinion on the videos I have seen. I can do the mods and save a hundred bucks.

Yep, I completely agree on all points inked1974.

Each bike is a bit different and many of the "mods" offered are just hype to make it seem like a logit reason to charge people more, if someone can't handle the simple mods, chances are they can't handle any of the rest of it either, not being ugly here it's just the truth so save a $100 and tweak everything the way you want it and need it to be.

Peace, map

I was going to buy a motor from Motovelo. I called the guy, he was nice and knowledgeable, but no matter what they tell you, their really just Chinese motors that he ported, billeted, etc.

You can do that yourself.

I would have bought from him, but he didn't even offer a warranty, so I figured If I wasn't going to get a warranty I'd at least buy a Grubee.

Hey Tank, give me a call if you have any questions. Our ported HP motors take all the guesswork out of things if you want something ready to GO NOW! I'm always here to help out my customers too if they encounter any difficult steps, or have questions about their build. Let me know. 805-637-1746

Thanks!

Probably better to do it on your own. Heck, you could even ruin a manifold or two and still come out ahead dollar-wise. I made the mistake of buying one of their fully ported engines:
