I just finished a yzf head with a new valve lay out that i have wanted to try for a couple of years .if were going to make 64 hp this should be the head to do it the flow numbers @ 28"h20 are incredible for a 5 valve head as they usallyflow very well @ the lower lifts and then flatten out
.050" 56.9
.100 113.5
.150 165.3
.200 208.8
.250 240.3
.300 251.2
.350 257.6
.400 262.4
my curent honda heads are near 290 cfm but they dont have the flow@ the lower lifts like this head it only took 262 cfm on a honda to make 63 hp i have made 67 hp with the hondas.

Would this be different from an 06 head or are they basically the same? BTW - 67 hp is too much! :applause:

I wish there was a good 1/2 mile (or even a 3/8) somewhere around my 'hood. I've ridden stuff including 70 hp Norton twins at Ascot Park, and some Speedway, and the idea of having a 65 hp ride that weighs 220 instead of 280 sounds like fun to me.

Keep us posted on how this project shakes out. :applause:

290 cfm is a lot. An aftermarket small block chevy head with 200+cc runners has a hard time flowing that amount (unported) Nice work man.

You should see some of my HD heads 2.200" valve with over 390 cfm @ 28" h20 the yamaha was tested today it got kind just put together because of time limitation the cams qwere checked but left where they were not conclsive to hp and the steel valves with dishes in them gave up some ccs along with the piston being cut for the larger valves neteing less than 12-1 compresion but the bike still manged 60 hp @9000 rpm and maintaned 59 or better @ 11000 rpm with some compresion and better fuel it will match my best hondas before long right now it should be the fastest yamaha on the grand national circut if not one of the fastest bikes period were excited to see a diferent color the next 2 weeks are going to be exciting in florida .

Nice work man, its really hard to fathom that a 450cc engines really needs to flow that amount of air. The more air the better though, as long as you keep up the port velocity. Those HD heads sound like they flow some serious air. The highest flowing SBC (small block chevy) heads i've seen were something like 430cfm at .800". It was a naturally aspirated 355ci that put out over 1000hp. Flow benches are fun. :applause:

vvelocity measurerments @ the port entry are usally kept around 325-350 @ 28 " h20 where you have to be carfull is with the velocitys over the apex ssr if they get over 400 fps they quit making hp thats the reason down draft ports work so well you canhave higher overall port veloctys with no shearing because of a tight bend .

We actually built a 60 hp yzf 450 a few years back there was no reliability problems as a 450 its just that this new engine is showing promise of making even more power its curently less than 12-1 compresion the cams are not degreed properly it just sort got put together to make it to datona .

RHC
Are you doing any work on the YZ 250f? If so, what kind of performance gains?
