    Got the K9 out of the trailer down in St. Augustine Florida and fired it up and drove 70 miles down to Daytona, and 70 back. It ran flawlessly through the week and I didn't really crack that throttle hard until the third day of riding it. It's a rocket! I would have never expected this type of power to come from it. I've been on some fast jap bikes and I wouldn't be surprised if I could walk one of them. The thing feels like a Hayabusa. I am very, very happy with the outcome.

    Since u are tearing it down u should have ur cylinders polished it will look 100 times better well u have it apart get some head work done and u can bore it if u want and get new pistons and a cam. But talk to s&is about the boring and the cam or get a certified s&is builder to do it, but just remember boring with bigger pistons will make it run hot as hell there will be no stopping in traffic unless oil coolers are installed good luck

    I don't think that you have red the whole thread to say the least.

    Boring will NOT make it run hotter. Just be sure your tune up and jetting is right.

    No actually to say the least I saw just a thread asking for opinions on what to do during a winter rebuilding then I saw where it was posters and saw that he was well on his way,but really no reason for sarcasm when I saw an old thread and just gave my Opinion " 2 say the least "
