And again.....we go

Head is decked, -0.024".....stroker crank is installed.
All new rings ordered and installed.
Middle shifter fork ordered. Transmission is in great shape.
Had small signs of detonation..... And also very light piston to valve contact. Ordered a couple intake valves just cause.

Motor is back together..........one must shim the spark plugs when doing an aggressive shaved, as the electrodes will get knocked closed from tapping the piston.

A quick cam timing check, and all seems in order for the initial break in. I'll go back and check the compression once the rings get seated and oil is throughout the motor.....usually after the first tank of gas is enough for me to recheck and tidy up loose ends.

Did some fairing wrap of carbon fiber....i'm content with it for now, will have to see what it looks like on the bike to see if its' gonna stay.

yeah, I didn't have much luck with Brisk plugs, had two plugs go bad on two separate motor's/builds.

I just stick with good old NGK.......but also choose surface gap plugs too.

New covering for the fairings turned out ok. Couple heat cycles done.....once the roads get clean, it will be test ride and tuning.

Been trying to upload pics, but for some reason it keeps kicking me out with an errror...laptop or phone.

Well, it's done. Went back to classic look with a fresh coat of paint.
