    Awesome! I really appreciate the feedback on this.

    On a side note, I visited the machine shop that rebuilt my heads. Told them I have the engine out, and have the parts to bring in with it for the 30 overbore build. They said, because a lot of the shops in that area have closed, their work has more than doubled, so they will not be able to rebuild the engine as promised when I picked up the heads. They can do the machine work, if I disassemble the engine. They can order the bearings, and what-not, but no time to build it back to a long block so I can put it back in myself, as planned. Now I know a lot of you can do this in your spare time, and have done this left and right, but I do not have the time to do this. My search is on for another machine shop than can do all of this. A little bummed, but it is what it is. You might say, "You can do it. You have the factory manuals. Common, build it, it's nothing that hard." I can only say, I seriously do not have time for this with all my other projects as a home owner, and just other projects. Machine work and assembly all in the same place. The search is on. No truck running, no motorcycle racing till it is complete. Others here have a passion for drag racing, or even auto cross, but my passion at 53 years old is still motorcycle racing.

    Waiting for a reply back from an e-mail sent to M&M Heads. This place is close by and has a good reputation.

    I love sport bikes and watching the races! I almost bought a GPZ back in the 80's. I rode a 97 Yamaha YZF1000 until 3 yrs ago. After neck surgery it just wasn't comfortable sitting in that stance anymore.

    Very Cool, I need a supermoto in the worst way, my brothers build on his is almost complete, it'll be a wheelie machine Can you actually close your tailgate with the bike on the back?

    Oh how technology has changed since that bike. Looks rather fat. You get use to a bike, and stay with it, that's why I have had my GPz550 as a daily commuter since 2003. Just enough fun to not get me in trouble. The 2003 SV650s Twin is just enough speed, and still competitive in a lot of classes. No plans to move up to a 600 or 1000.

    Supet Moto's or Motards, are very popular here in the bay area. I can't close the tailgate, because the rear tire sticks out, and I carry the bike ramp, and Easy-Up I bring with me. Inside the truck the rear compartment holds my gear bags, tools, and spare parts crates. If I had bigger truck, or had the bike on a trailer, I'd bring more stuff I may or may not use.



    Good news is M&M Heads in Hayward will be able to rebuild my engine, and they said it will take a couple weeks. I have plans to drop the engine off to them with all the other stuff a week from Saturday. This news made my day yesterday!

    Motor is being delivered back to me tomorrow. Only about 3 weeks to have it complete, balanced, and assembled, less the intake manifold. Details to follow with pictures of course.
