I have a set of stock pistons, they're yours if you want them.

....or is it time to bore it to 67.5.

Thank you for the offer, very kind.  I'll keep it in mind.  I'm not sure what I want to do next.  I might try looking over that spare older version motor now though.   Damn.

I was thinking turbo.  A small one.  Seems like a good way to make this motor more exciting.  Maybe not the best bike candidate for it but give me your thoughts?

I got to thinking about this bike again.  Wouldn't it be better perhaps to find and fit a 440 top end?

If cases will accept the 440 sleeves.
