Sweetness!  It definitely sounds more snappy and than I remember from the video you posted in the spring.  Listening to the exhaust note, it has that distinct "pop" generally associated with a higher compression motor that you don't hear on a standard UCE motor.  I'd say mission accomplished.  ;)  What was your previous top speed before you tore the top end down again?  Did you do a cylinder compression test to get a relative idea of the compression bump achieved?

    Yeah, it definitely SOUNDS sweeter.... But also maybe a little restricted. looking at THAT today.  But I want to at least get it out for a run today if the rain stops. Compression  IS up as you can hear......   I did show 94 , on the GPS on my phone during the summer.   For top speed stuff, as opposed to good mid range ? Yeah... I think we'll have to take a look at the gearing  and probably that header.

  Yeah, and crackley and poppy...... Might be time to make a bigger header.  Took a little closer look at the stock header today.  It is actually quite well made... if not I little small for my needs now....  Something we did not see earlier. Down near the silencer connection ,the double wall pipe also houses an anti-reversion hole and chamber...pretty trick.

Thanks GHG.  I went from reading about motorcycles to watching a 45 minute special on mountain lions preying on desert big horn sheep.   ;)  I didn't even know there was such a thing.    ???
