Got some miles on it and figured it was time for an update. But first, anyone who has a winter project and want to add it to the post, feel free to do so.
Now that Iím past the break-in period I can tell you there is a definite improvement. Seems smother, more responsive, just overall better performing. So far there has been no oil usage, but I need to log more miles before I can give a definite answer to that question. Was it worth the money? I would say yes, seeing that it used oil and the head was off. Would I tear apart a perfectly good engine to do this? The answer to that is no, Iím a firm deliver in if itís not broke donít fix it. Before the work the bike ran fine and did everything I needed it to do, now it does it just a little better. I did find that my high beam indicator is to bright. So todayís job is to add another resister to that LED.
Hope to read about some other winter projects.
