I didnt see your post thats just ahead of mine, when I posted I was responding to the post prior.
I think we need our own forum...lol
I admire Bill, the work he is doing with the race team, and the pride he takes in his equipment and his products. Bill is a great guy to deal with, and I would certainly buy from him again. While I have not had a negative experience with dealing with BC, I do not feel the same way about them.
Considering thing's I've read on other forums, I wouldnt expect Bill to have anything positive to say about BC or anyone from that organization. There appear's to be some history there, I dont know anything about it and wont pretend to.
I didnt mean to insinuate that you somehow bought or wiseco produce's a inferior product. I only meant that I'm anal about stuff and thought that the BC kit would be a better end result regarding longevity.
As for the comment about only having 2mm left for the 904 kit, my motor appears to be fine. I feel if there were a issue I could contact sean at BC and hopefully come to a resolution that would agree with us both.
The 1200 kit in development will be using sleeves that are 2.7mm thick btw...for what it's worth. Again this kit was developed and based upon a racing application, it only makes sense that they would want iron liners for durability. And they are tearing motor's down and rebuilding them on a semi-regular basis.
All together a different scenario when compared to a street bike. The other hting about iron liners is I would assume they wouldnt disapate heat like aluminum...( read assume )...which for me anyway is another nod for what I bought.
After 22k miles Bill's motor had enough wear to warrant new ring's and a hone job. Granted Bill use's his stuff, it's hard to tell how many dyno run's that bike went thru in that 22k miles...but after 17K on your motor the bores look great.
It's good that we as owner's have option's regarding mods...even if they are limited when compared to other brands.
