Performance goals: Feels like a P200 running lean haha.
Anyways, case is closed & cyl is on. I didn't realize I would need the long stroke appropriate head spacer until now but basically this seems like a perfect opportunity to learn how to measure and what those values mean.
I know how to set the kit up to function well but I learn nothing that way. I'll feel like I missed an opportunity to progress if I do that.
I need an idiots guide, like set your dial at TDC and then...
So maybe performance goals aren't even the point right now tbh. Overall, I like torquey around town bikes that can stretch their legs on the occasional back road, but I'm not a tourer that loves nothing more than cruising at 55-60 all day.
Calculating port timings is not actually all that hard.
Measuring accurately is about diligence and averages.
Figuring out what the timings you're trying to achieve is the trickier part, but we can help with that based on performance goals and specific parts choices, e.g box vs pipe, which top end, cruising vs. stop light racing, etc.
