If you figure a way to sit on the R3, have it shipped to Carpenter's for their 240 hp kit. $5k.

Carpenters is the reason for my posting this thread-----Any other brand would ,after a fashion, provide the speed I want but few have the design to provide engine longevity after the modifications. Thank all of you for the input---I have made a deal for a RIII and will let you all know how it turns out !...................
