If you are all out drag than it is probably the epoxy port job. My opinion is that epoxy jobs are for road racing and street bikes not drag bikes. Is it a gen 1 or gen 2? Gen 2 head needs bigger valves.

Sidewinders hurt power if you're not running a big motor...

not so much hurt but takes away some midrange wich you really dont need.it actually picked up a mph when i pulled the baffle.yes a sidewinder is made for peak power and to move air,i actually seen a gain from it.the only reason i got it was for ground clearance...i think i have an answer to my prob anyways.thanks

all depends on how the bike was tuned really, doing the work to the bike is only half the job. maybe you should find a good tuner and know what parts make what power.

what year is the bike. As i stated before epoxy jobs (my opinion) are for road racing bikes. You dont gain a bunch of top end power from them. YOu can show me a dyno before and after doing an epoxy job and there is a huge gain down low and overall but you have to take in consideration must of the time you are setting the squish tighter at the same time. I think you should get another head done(not epoxy) and if turns out better for you then sell the epoxy job to a road racer.

I have a ported head. It really needs to be matched with the cams and motor to have the full package otherwise your just kinda slinging crap and hopefully something will stick. Dwayne at Cycle Concepts did my package and knows his stuff
