I'll be looking at building BBK's and cam for it and the 420's. I'm going to order some parts in from Honda next week to see how big I can go for sure.

Just found out the 500 is just a big bore 420 and It looks like that will be max for the 500 at 92mm piston.

I had a good idea that was the case with the new Foreman 500 engine, with a slightly bigger injector as well.

The way it looks right now is most of my R&D will be in the cam and heads on both.The 500 will get a little higher compression to help run the bigger cam,and with the 420 I will just offer the 475cc 92mm piston piston with the higher compression and cam to match. The you will just buy a 500 cylinder and head gasket to go with my piston. After that head work and maybe big valves so you can take advantage of the 500's 36mm throttle body over the 420's 34mm.

Yes the 475 is as big as you can go without welding up the water jackets and moving them out. I would do that if it had 4 valves.
