I just bought a set of loaded Spada heads from a wrecker in Australia, they will be shipped direct to Mike Norman at G-Force engine development for porting, flow bench testing and valve job. It's another investment in the old bike but you couldn't ask for anyone better to do the work. With rumours that our 250 and 300 Lightweight classes will be combined next year I'll need a few more ponies :lol:

Scott,

If anyone can get an increase in HP from the VTR Mike is "The Mann".

John, his built engines have typically been in the 38HP RANGE on pump gas. He says most gains are in the heads but I have already lightened the flywheel by 300gr and put in VF500 +1mm pistons.

Wow, I see Photobucket no longer allows sharing/embedding without paying them. I see so many threads on forums gone to mud because of it :(

If you would like to see my race photos and bike updates you can check out my Facebook racing page.

I use Flickr which still hosts photos without charge.
