I now have the rings all file fitted and on the pistons. Next up was installing the pistons on the rods. I do have the piston clip installer but for the life of me I sure can't figure out how it is suppose to work. So I did it the old fashioned way, with my fingers and a small blade screw driver. 8, eight is the number of times I dropped one clip down in the motor before I developed a "system" to install the clips. I had intentions of installing the cylinders when I realized I don't have a ring compressor that will work on this bike. I ordered one that I should have here sometime next week.

It's getting there. This is still a big dollar experiment as NO-ONE that I know or have heard of has attempted to go beyond the 1190 displacement.
My piston ring pliers will be here Monday-Tuesday according to UPS.
IMO opening up this motor is only worth it if your going to go big. Anything else is a waste of time. How does it go? There is no replacement for displacement!... other than a power adder!

CP 4.275" domed pistons, pins, wire locks and rings
ARP rod bolts
ARP/EBR Head studs, washer and nuts
Revolution Stage 3 head porting
.010" milled surface

Crower Performance Drag Race Cams
Balanced and welded crank
Cometic head gaskets
Buell gasket kit
Bottom end of the motor is assembled. The top end will have to be finished up, the parts are all here.
$6500.00 plus shipping. I know this is more then some paid for their complete motorcycle. Then again the heads alone are close to what an 1125 was selling for during the "Fire sale". This IS NOT a street motor. This is for racing. Current cam selection is a drag race cam, with a different cam choice you could have a road race motor.
My local drag strip has closed their doors and I have no desire to travel to race, so I'm selling my drag race stuff.

Shame about your local track closing Mike,that sucks big time,but seems to be getting to be a regular occurrence.
Sorry that you're pulling the plug on the project,was good to see someone else working on the motors.
But you'll do well to recover some of your losses,you know the score we do this because we want to,not because it makes any sense.
I've had rods made and have a couple of cranks being lightened and ground for more stroke. But at the moment I'm concentrating on the chassis and weight savings.Got 750cc injectors now so if I need some more ponies I'll use nitrous.
Good luck,you might do better splitting the bits up. Didn't you have a nice swingarm made as well?
