The right side is still much louder than the left, and I think I've figured out why! Back in 2013, when I first started work on it, I had to file on the right side head and block both to get them flat. I don't know how much I removed but it may have been as much as 5 thou (total). Could this have increased the compression on that side? I know that my compression testing a while back showed #1 to be 20 psi higher than the other cylinders.

Could be, these motors have high compression to begin with, When I did my gaskets and tested after, the bike had the high side of factory spec and it has 200K+ miles on it, so I bet you could have increased it.

Loaded up the Hunley and took it to Stearns, Kentucky to the Moonshiner's Run Car Show. Had a great time, met some wonderful folks, and talked to a lot of them about the Hunley. Next up is new lower brake lines and new tires, so I can get some riding in this fall!
