Re: Question about connecting rod polishing
I didn't polish the skirts or the intake. After smoothing and contouring the intake I went over it with 120 grit. Someone compared the gas going down a polished intake like rain water running off your windshield at highway speeds. How it just sticks to the glass and creeps along. That same person said that 120 will work fine and it does. The bike I did that stuff to performs really really good. I wont do all that stuff on the new build as the head I just scored is rebuilt and ready to run.
I'm definitely gonna get the rods checked out.......better safe than sorry.
