I can say one thing about there product.
I bought a IMS tank with the XR's Al baker decals on it. The decal where on the tank a year before I bought it. They have yet to show any prospect of pealing off around the edges yet.
Although I have read here that they are not making them anymore....to bad, nice item. This is the reason I was looking at the other items they have on there web site.

Sorry, I did not mean to start a rant by anyone about XR's only. I like reading good pos. feed back on a product when I saw the comments here.
In this case it looks to me that it's not the product but the vendor that may be the problem.

Don't forget about me! During my motor re-build I placed a Hotcam in my motor, it shit, then I had to rebuild my motor again but with the OEM cam.

I bumped CW's thread for enlightenment, copied and pasted most of it into a word file to get rid of the trash.

Mega Cycle will NOT accept a Hot Cam core for one of their regrinds. Has something to do with the sub par steel the Hot Cam is made of.

Just saying.

I'm not one one them douche. I built Ducati motors, vintage CB motors, and this motor is not string theory.

This same motor is running strong 2,500 miles later.
Some people shouldn't post sucka!

They did some work for my cylinder head and didn't have any issues. I do recall some dude there not sowing up for work and that caused a delay but I was happy with what the work they did. The cylinder head was so nice I didn't want to put it back in the motor.

One way shipping was about the same $$$'s as case splitting, and done in a timely manner.

I guess I can endure a few obnoxiously large fonts once in a while.

Thanks Kenno for the inspiration...I will absolutely post results hopefully tomorrow afternoon (so everyone can opine and see...) and test on the same trails I always do my testing/jetting.

Even if I get a 10f degree drop that would put me down to a safe 250f max. Which for a semi modded mild engine is ok for now...

In my humble opinion
