I saw an old article somewhere on the internet that I can no longer find that described the whole process. I am intending to replace the head with an new one because of some broken fins. I've gotten to the point where the bike is actually referred to as a classic and it would be nice to get rid of the unsightly scars.

Good luck on the rebuild and I will be following
Hi Kriton! My bike came with a K&N filter and I think it had already been rejetted but I"m not sure. I still have the carbs off the bike so I need to check that... I had no plans to change the cam timing. I've started the bike and it seemed to run just fine so I'll be changing as little as possible!
