    We shouldn't have to inspect the heads, though...a lot of people assume that when you've paid good money, you should be getting a good product.

    Have you sent pics to NRHS, yet? Misaligned valve guide doesn't happen from bad tuning, that's bad construction.

    i'm not messing with nrhs. I doubt they will even try to help fix this. and even if they do I'm not trusting their work.

    took a ride with the air filter on. gonna have to take one shim out of the needle if I keep the air filter. I don't like where it sits while riding. very in the way and likely to split boots so the K&n rc-9770 will be replaced with a K&N RU-4410

    coffee can full of nickels and dimes. theres so much inertia in the flywheel that by the time you loose power and start to hear the rattle of death its too late.
