Progress foties?



And... can I ask... how did you decide on the 525 as your bike of choice? Was it the best starting point?

Were there any other serious contenders? XR650?

Bid bore kit 540

Got the big bore kit home and strait in to it ,
First was to gap the rings , reading through the instructions , Bla bla bla
measure the cylinder 76mm devided by 25.4 x 0040 = .01189 and there's my ring gap ( ha ha very funny , homo ) grab the feeler gauges carfully slide the rings in the barrel ,................. spot on ,

keep reading through al the other instructions Hmmmm piston 12.5-1 Comp
Sweet ( i ordered1.0-1 comp it was cheaper ) first bonus

double check all the part , full gasket set , nice new 540 cylinder , jet kit 8 asorted main and pilot jet, Stage one HOT CAM ,

Hmmm i think to my self there no point installing this big bore kit unless i get
new valves , seats ,guides and springs , Shit more cash i gotta fork out

So the big bore kit will wait, Now time to get valves , seats ,guides and springs.

If your going to do some thing do right !!!
