If you go straight to milling the head, what happens when you blow the gasket and HAVE to mill your head? You could end up out of spec and have to buy a new head. $80 gasket is a much cheaper/safer solution.05zx10pilot said:It seems to me that if you have the head off the engine already ... just get it machined down a bit more. They do this mod on cars all the time. I for one am going to leave mine alone, the more I touch the more I break!
I agree.miykl said:If you go straight to milling the head, what happens when you blow the gasket and HAVE to mill your head? You could end up out of spec and have to buy a new head. $80 gasket is a much cheaper/safer solution.
Alright just got to ride my bike after I got the cams degreed to muzzy supersport setting. When I added the thin head gasket I only got around 3 hp but the bottom end power was really faster and pulled stronger down low. By degreeing the cams (by the seat of my pants) its day and night different. Especially up high. I'm running the 1 down in front and top end comes fast and the bitch just bangs off redline. It comes up in 3rd unexpectlly now and I'm no little boy 220lbs. I think legitally by degreeing the cams and the thin head gasket its a good 8-10 horespower. Going to have to go back to stock gearing I think cause I like to run over 175 mph and thats all you get with one down its says 189.BNninja said:DustinR changed his and only dynoed 2hp more so that is why he just had his cams redegreed. If you see the gain Ivan got it was 6.4hp with gasket, cams, and ignition advanced. Proof is in the pudding....now Ivan might have used the Kawasaki gasket which is .03mm thinner while the Muzzy is .2mm thinner or something like that...the muzzy is 3x as thin.
