Question Knock knock... (DR650RS)

My 93 DR650RS sounds like this: (links to 1.52mb .wav file, idle is about 2000 rpm)

Now this is a project bike. I was told that the cylinder taps on the barrel (hope I got the wording right here ), needs to open up anyway - no problem here.

I'm looking for possible engine mods here, once the engine is already open. I'd like more power please, but it's very important to keep the reliability on this engine. I want it to run for another 16 years

What is your thoughts here?


If you wanna ride - ride, don't talk
