I checked the valves and the exhaust was pretty tight and the intake was close. I bought the JD kit for it but I would be interested to hear your take on jetting Bob. My plan is to run it on the lake this winter, so I need to get my ass in gear and get her sorted. I owned a 570 and I didn't like it nearly as much as the old Chassis. Not sure why but the old chassis it feels more stable and it slides better than any other bike I've ever had
