  3. Flowed and ported head
  4. Over size Stainless valves and seats
  5. APE rolled head studs
  6. Engine block taken out to 1080cc, not the rubbish failing re coated thing. Water jacket total machined out. Steel liners then sank into head forming new water jacket then taken out to 1080. thus plent of meat in barrels very strong.

  16. JMC arm + Scnitz lowerind adj arm linkage
  17. Bitubo rear shock (Not shown on pics, later addition as standard too soft)
