I could do your hip surgery for you if you like. Cheap.
I haven't done one before but I wouldn't let that put you off.
Imagine the bike parts you could buy with the savings!

Hip surgery and whatnot went well. I called my friend to show me how to post some pics. Hopefully he will come over in the next week? I have already been riding some. My bike is very consistanly but not always pulling power wheelies from about 35mph I am guessing because I am usually too busy to study the tach in ernest. My airbox mods helped my midrange a lot. My latest mods most definitely got me a lot more power EVERYWHERE. The biggest gains are in the 4k to 7k range. My above 7k power gains aren't nearly as big as the lower rpm gains. I highly suspect it is the exhaust holding it back but we will see here pretty soon I hope. My bigger intake valves and massively hogged out ports and completely hogged out airbox just keeps getting me more and more midrange. I figured that raising my compression, dual plugging and remapping my ignition would mostly get me more low rpm power but I didn't figure on all the hogging out doing the same thing. I chalk a lot of that up to the 336. Despite their high end reputation they are most definitely a midrange cam. Now that my low end performance is SO much stronger, I will put bigger diameter exhaust on and see how that raises my peak torque. If that isn't enough I can always time my cam straight up. Everyone I know says that's good for around 500rpm higher peak torque.

Pics coming soon I hope!

SS is a great mechanic and a wonderful source for instruction for all of us inmates. However, he is "differently abled", or "computer challenged". Just kidding, SS, don't hurt me.

Check your sidestand bolt torque value and repent.

I will soon be starting a Southland Clutch thread. I expect to be soundly chastised.

Thanks guys. I swear that my computer wherewithall is about like I am with a camera. I did buy a camera a few years ago. I just for some reason have no inclination to use it! Or much of any desire to post pictures but I will. I am just going to wait and be showed how to do it so it will take a fraction of the time.

I think my stainless push rod tubes might be weeping at the cylinders. I hope not. I have had just about perfect luck with the stock ones. Those stainless tubes don't fit right IMO. The tube ID is the same but the interference fit is a lot tighter for the tube being a lot thicker and not giving as much as the stock ones. I am keeping my fingers crossed but it doesn't look good at this point.

I over revved the crap out of my engine today. I am going to look into a rev limiter. Any experience with any out there on our airheads? I just leaked it down and nothing bent! I think maybe my new valve float rpm is higher than I thought. The black top was damp so I got going around 35 or 40 mph before I rolled into the throttle. The back tire broke loose and that sucker spun up out of sight in a nano second before I had a chance to get back out of the throttle.

I was hoping to have some photos posted by now but my help has been out of town. Soon I hope!

Did you pull 9000? Don't go bending that thing (and yesself) again!

I got to just on 8000 this morning before it stopped making power/breaking down? while out giving my tranny rebuild a try out. No point screwin' about.

The tach tops out a 8k so I don't know. Bending a valve? That I was afraid of! Bending the bike? That's going to take more than spinning up the back tire while in a straight line. I am not that old yet!
