Oh yes, I have a nice assortment of reverse burrs  cheesy
But going slow and changing the cutting angle goes a long way to not having a problem.

This is all for now.
Still gotta weld up the compression reliefs so no sense getting carried away.

I guess it's too late to say "Don't lower the bottom of the main exhaust port."

Nope, haven't touched it  grin
In fact I have to cut the top of the exhaust port back to the stock specs as it has been welded up.

Something huge showed up last week..
There was no "M" markings but if you know what to look for you can see the "M" touch on it...

Me too  cool
I know it is a 44mm Lectron with a cool choke set up on it.
I gotta get it on my bike one of these days...
I doubt I have enough port timing to make full use of it but we will see..

Well... It's been about 6 years since I built this bike when catastrophe happened..
I was climbing a dune and misjudged the amount of speed it would take to just barely clear the top so I had to wind this baby up and leave it there for about 10 seconds... I made it to the top when I heard a rattling sound... I shut the engine off and got towed behind a side by side a few miles back to camp in the deep sand.

I just let the bike sit in the garage for the last several months because I thought that I had ran it too lean and smoked the piston...
Well... the piston was smoked but not from being ran too lean...

As soon as I saw it I had a feeling I knew where that small bolt had come from...



In one of my "How To" threads I specifically say that if you use a VF2 reed that you need to take all the bolts out and use thread locker on them.
Apparently the Blue I used wasn't enough... So next time I will use the red...  cool

So here my baby sits in need of some love...  cheesy



After I get some fork cleaner in town tomorrow I will rinse out the bottom end and get it prepped for a test top end.
Yes.... Test top end....  evil
