OK well I just recieved my new (used) head from the ups man :partsin01:. This time I will not be the cheap scate I was last time. this head will have everything new! I will do like I did before take a few before pics, but this time I will take more progress shots leading up to the final results. I have to do it right this time I don't have any more spare parts...LOL

Here is my new Subject. LOL


You can actually see the casting inside the intake opening..that will be alot less noticeable when I'm done.

Yeah, looks good. I believe you will get it this time with the purchase of the new valves.

Oh yeah KB Motorsports has what I need new springs, and valves. I'm sticking with the oem size, I feel with my riding style I don't need to put any un needed stress with oversized valves.

I've learned to use the lighting while I'm grinding and sanding away the metal if you look in the pic above of the intake ports you will see the light pattern is nearly identical on the longer reflection. that tells me that the runners are basically going to flow the smae route IMO?
Thanks for the votes of confidence. I'm still debating on +1 valves but I don't race so I really don't feel like I need them. any opinions???

If it's gonna be a performance quad build I'd do the +1 valves.If I get the money I want for my bike I'm gonna do them.Looking great by the way.
