So went to the dyno with my new 42mm taperbore compliments of Walt, and some u4.2 to test out. Anyways I forgot to print both graphs but the bored carb lost power all the way up to about 6500 then started to take over up top. Taking the peak to about 55.2 and then leveled off to stock area. Im guessing once cams and piston come into play it will be better. Then drained the pump and added u4.2. Power across the board. Peak went to over 56whp and torque is huge now. 39ftlbs. Im super stoked with this machine. Pulls like crazy!!!!!!!! Here is the graph. Once I have 14.1 piston and cams this thing will do around 60whp easy and torque should be insane. I cant wait. Enjoy and more to come dont you worry.

About 2 more weeks and i will be crashing at you place so we can play with mine :) so it the carb bore really worth it for a mostly stock set up? I dont think I will go that route.

WE can just bolt mine on your bike and find out. On a bike with intake and exhaust only, itll depend on your style. Most peeps like to run their bike wound out. I know I do, so it works great for me. If your lugging your bike through the turns and such then probably not. Killer mid and top gains though. Im happy with mine. When i go with some cams Ill probably do 43mm and port match the intake side of the head. I matched the boot on the carb side for now, but eventually when i have it apart Ill open up the intake side just a touch to match.

I see you run U4.2, Nice power increase for just fuel, ive heard that u4.2 is corrosive to the aluminum in the engine,Is this true or not? I dont have any personal experince with it but I would like to try it if there arent any negative affects.

Ya, any Oxy fuel is corrosive. U4.2 is less corrosive though. U4 was designed a long time ago and the U4.2 is the redisgned U4 that is less corrosive and can pass the AMA fuel check. Just make sure if and when you use it you drain it from your tanks, lines and carb .

You should try some MRX01 if you want to see some real good #'s on the wheel.
