I voted in with a modified 865, but a 904 and headwork is in the near future.

BTW, Rumrunner, how do you like that TEC 2/1 with your engine? I just ordered one, but I haven't seen much on it from riders with bigger (carbs/cams/???) mods.

With my combination I love the 2/1 exhaust. It gave a seat of the pants increase in mid range torque and acceleration. I didn't dyno the exhaust back to back when I changed it. I certainly noticed the difference in that I can roll on the throttle from a lower RPM and she pulls much stronger. For the price I paid, I couldn't be happier.

I voted a modified 865 - meaning I have 813 cams in it. No headwork or anything yet though.

Rides too many miles and navigates far too readily to enjoy motorcycling properly.

I think now adays anyone that spends the extra money on the crank work tends to go with the bigger motors now if they run a stroker.988s are fun though.

Why do I feel young on my bike
