the motor just had a complete top end rebuild to include fresh cylinder hone, new piston rings, fresh competition 3 angle valve job, some mild porting done to the cylinder heads
right now the motor has a set of P cams installed
I do have 3 Sifton Barracuda cams that will go with the bike (missing the front cylinder exhaust cam)
