Head milling

Was just wondering if any other 10r owners have had their head milled. And how much was taken off. I am putting on the .45 head gasket but would like to take off more. The race manual tells you how to measure piston squish, but I don't need it to be the maximum that I can get. Was just looking to get about 1 more point bringing 12.7 up to 13.7. Any help would be great.

I don't think you can get much higher compression without domed pistons, the squish is pretty close with the .45 HG. Buy some drop-in 13.5:1 pistons and you will be close to 14:1 with the .45 HG. Just run 93 fuel. -Dean

I have taken .015 off the head, and used the thinnest gasket. PV clearance was no problem. I've taken .025 off my second one but haven't put it together. I plan on using the thinnest gasket again, and the kawi race intake.
