Dude, such a nice looking sporty.  Sold my 1200 last year without too much regret, but seeing builds like yours definitely gives me a few pangs of seller's remorse!  Love the rear fender chop, the choice of seat, but above everything else I love the bronze powdercoat.  Man, looking forward to seeing this all finished up.

Thanks... I'm going to pull the heads off and go ahead and powder the push rod tubes and tappet covers this weekend in anticipation of getting my stuff back from my powder coater... that'll eliminate all chrome...

So, I nutted up and pulled the heads and powdered up the Push Rod Tubes and bases. The inner head bolts were rusty and gross, so I blasted them and stripped the zinc off in some muriatic acid and re-plated them in nickel-copper-nickel. (See my Triumph build for details on that.) This at least gave me the opportunity to check out the cylinder bores which look great. I've been tempted to add a 1275 kit on it and bump the displacement up a bit.... It'd be about $1100 for the Hammer 1275 jugs and pistons, ignition module and re-jetting the carbs. I'm having a conflict on whether or not I can justify it... I'm still in this bike a at pretty decent price even after everything so far. Maybe I'll sit on it a week and think about it....that'd put me around a 90hp bike which is pretty quick for a sporty. Decisions, decisions...

If there's a vote, I vote for the 1275 kit.  :)  You already have the heads off and it'll be more work to do it later.  You know you want to....    ;)

As far as $/hp, if your bores still look good at 1250 I'd stay there.  25cc isn't gonna net you a whole helluva lot for $1100

Edit: new cams should keep you happy for a while anyways  ;)

If it's already at a 1250, I missed that.  I was thinking it was an 883 for some reason.

I agree, spend that money on some other performance mod, like porting maybe, 25cc is nothing, unless you are racing and need every last little bit of hp.

Its a 1200. So 75cc more if I do the kit. Were talking a noticeable HP difference. The bike has 27,000 miles (which is not a big number on an evo motor)

The Hammer kits look pretty nice.  I'd only noticed the S&S kits before.
