Unfortunately due to Rochester humidity I gotta re clean all my surfaces before putting new gaskets
But that's an easy clean up
Shouldn't damage my paint job either

I kinda wanna dremel or grind flats on my engine cooling fins to give in that custom look and break up some of the dark lines

Well I started grinding the fins and polishing them it looks great but now I need to fix paint
I definately recommend using vht primer before enamel
Especially on jug and head

Another while your in there mod
I started the port and polish my head also plan on getting new valves and lapping new seats
They had to come out regardless for new stem seals
No point doing complete rebuild on bottom to top
engine without doing a valve job
And while I'm there port intake and polish combustion chambers

I've got six hours on it so far
It's tedious but well worth it
I've spent less than 20 bucks on dremel bits

Updated picture
The valves were caked in crap
Glad I decided on the port and polish

I'm done with porting half done with polish
I've got 9 hours in so far
Agh but damn it looks good and should improve
Fuel atomization
And air flow

Please explain the fuel atomization theory of polished ports.  Polishing inlets leads to reduced flow and fuel puddling.  A nice "as machined" finish flows better and keeps fuel in suspension better than polished ports.

The only benefit of polishing combustion chambers and exhaust ports is to reduce carbon build up and on low mile bikes, that's not really an issue.

Did you follow the AGBell and Vizard inlet port shapes and how did you resolve the fact that certain portions of the inlet tract are too large already?

Yeah, so did you weld the ports to close them in some sort of squish them down then re shape em? wheres the pics I really am intrigued  ???
