JCW, we can't wait to see what you come up with!

I'm about to follow in your footsteps...I'm going to order valves from Keith and I called Dinqua's recommended machine shop to do the valve install and port/polish, I'm going with a Wiseco kit I think, and the 41mm mikuni carbs...

that is, IF the XS650 sells and I have a few bites on it now.

I was wondering what cams you're going to use.

I don't see anything that really grabs me, and they're easy enough to pop in later so I'm going to wait. I really think our stock cams are ok and I like where they make power. Nice meaty midrange up to around 6k where they taper, so I'll stick with them for now. Plus after the valves, big bore, machine work, and $1400 carbs I'm tapped. Looks like this endeavour will cost me around $2500 bucks not including any shipping or my labor. Ouch!

I'm hoping to net around 85rwhp though...
