The first one was rock solid, the only reason I tore it down was because I had a slight knocking that i thought was rod related, turns out I was wrong, the engine looks brand new inside.
I bought another complete engine (brand new) and replaced the cylinder and piston with a JE 444 (97mm) big bore piston and had the head done.
what I can tell you is that you want to set it up tighter than they (Wiseco or JE) recommend because the pistons shrink a bit after a short period of time.
Mine is just broken in and runs extremely strong.
I set it up at .0012" or .030mm piston to cylinder wall clearance.
I am also running Fluidyne radiators to keep heat in check.
So far, an awesome build, I also went with the 03 cam.
Bike runs bad ass.
