Is there a noticeable change going from stock pistons to Gs850 pistons?

Absolutely. I would say there's probably a 15-20% increase in power. It's almost as if Honda designed the head for a bigger engine and then didn't change anything when they went with a smaller displacement.

thanks

There are probably half a dozen of us here that have done it.

This one is in progress right now.

PJ pretty well covers it in this thread and in one on, I believe, HondaTwins.  Go back and go through the whole thing and it's all there.

I guess anyone with a yahoo mail account has noticed the 'change password nagging due to security breach in 2014? about 500,000,000 accounts 'probably' compromised.
Anyway, I can't access any yahoo account at present so if you e-mail me don't expect a reply anytime soon. Yahoo seem to have 'shut down' customer service and only 'help' paying businesses, small business and majorones (they are complaining about ads on paid subscription, no wonder Yahoo management want to sell out to Verizon.) I managed to get an e-mail to them but the 'help' section is saying 'tough luck'.  Guess I'll find out if they intend to do anything on Monday? 18yrs of using Yahoo just to get shit on  >:(

More a blog than related to motorcycles but I wanted everyone to know I'm still here.
Stepdaughter had a major meltdown last October, ended up calling police saying I attacked her......... case is up in court on 10th May.
She's 37 now so not a kid (although still act's like a 6yr old)
Wife and I have been looking after grandson since 9th Oct 2016, he was 11 months old when everything happened
He's a happy little chap and having a great time now (I spoil the heck out of him  ;D )
It is pretty much a full time job though so everything has been put on back burner for a while.
We are really lucky living next door to a park with a playground, he's there every afternoon after daycare and I'm getting a chance to get stuff done.
 Grandson is 18 months old now, learned to run and thinks it's great fun to play on 'the big kids' equipment over park, keeps doing 'gravity' experiments rolling soccer ball down the 'twirly whirly' slides then goes down after it. I have to use the stairs, lost almost 20lbs in less than 3 months (no, I'm not trying to lose weight)
Anyway, I'mmmm baaaaaaaaack  8) (sorta ;) )
