Hit me up if you have questions. I have a few simple but effective tricks beyond the common ones to get my RD down to the that weight. I didn't even have to spend that much extra dough, and in many cases the results were a vast improvement, the weight savings were just a bonus.

Managed to 'build' a 'rustic' table for filming some more install and tech vids.  Then found some time to blast the engine as well.  This time a pretty rough job compared to the last engine - running with the more time on performance things than looks!  I actually tried soda this time too, but it just wasn't abrasive enough to remove the clear coat on the engine cases or the oxidisation. 

Oh yeah, then put on some old 3D printed prototypes to dress it up a little and put it on the stand I made a last year.  Never thought it would be so handy!

Is it even physically possible to get 30hp out of these? Staying tuned..

Physically possible, absolutely. Technically possible, maybe.

Isn't it the other way round?

Either way we want to see you try :)

My point is that the potential exists, but does the technical know how in this specific case exist? Maybe, maybe not.

I'm not OP though, so I'm not building it.

Ok, gotcha.
I think so too.
I buying a Honda 250 twin motor to tear down make some mods and if it works out, heading for the ton too.
