Hi guys, I had my last cross country race on sat and want to do some maintenance and mods on my race bike, it has approx 100 hours on so I want to overhaul the engine for next season,

I need to fix the gearbox cause there is a bad false neutral between 3rd and 4th so I am going to strip the whole engine,

I will replace whatever is damaged and piston, rings,timing chain, should I do anything else while I'm in there ?

Also I want to get the head flowed and maybe some hot cams, any suggestions ? It has a yoshi pipe on already

Cheers, Stu
