On the other hand, you could really cheat, taking the motor out to 750cc. As long as you don't look significantly faster than the other bikes, or win too often, no one should ask for a tear down
Its an R65 with 450 cylinders and pistons, finding the 450 kit was hard enough and they were never imported to down under.
Where can i get oversized pistons?
