Right combination
« on: May 02, 2009, 12:07:39 AM »
I was thumbing through the new CMW catalog today and noticed there is now a performance head for the AVL. I had already been thinking of using the 535 AVL piston/rings in my bike if and when it comes time for a top end job. Now I'm thinking that I could add the new head to the equation. I have to wonder though, with a better flowing head and larger displacement, would my 30mm flat slide make my engine under-carburetted?

If I may- I thought the 535 kit was for the iron barrel only.  Is there indeed a 535 kit for the AVL?

Uncle Ernie, it is not really a kit per se, just a 535 piston and rings for the AVL. The bike shop I use can easily do the bore job for me if I decide to do it.

Just to Clear any confusion on this we do now offer a 535 kit for the AVL. The kit consists of a cylinder, fitted forged 535 piston w/ rings and the gaskets. Along with the kit we also offer a Performance head that has new Ampco valve guides, Black Diamond valves, three angle valve job, porting and milled. We also offer just the piston and rings for the AVL which is a forged piston in either stock or 535 sizes for those of you wanting to have your cylinder worked by your own shop.     ;D

Thanks Travis. Now, back to my original question: If I go with both head and big-bore kit, what would be the best carb?
