Boy, did I ever! After reducing the flywheel weight, blueprinting the engine, balancing, cleaning up the intake ports, installing Witham valve springs and adding RCMs, that 650 CC Triumph engine would turn ~10,000 RPM and made lots of HP above 4200 RPM.

The sounds of a vertical twin on song at 6000RPM and above gave me goosebumps!
