I'm after recommendations for a big bore kit. I'm not after massive horsepower and I'm not looking to do this right now - I just thought that I might spend some birthday money and have a kit handy for when a freshen up is required. I want reliability over horsepower and an "all inclusive" kit over bare bones (requiring other purchases). I would prefer to buy off eBay (and ship via the global shipping program) as it solves the issue of import tariffs and duty at my end. Any thoughts as to brand, reliability and suppliers greatly received. I am aware that there may be other parts of the bike requiring attention when a freshen up is required - maybe valves / head and cam chain. Any thoughts on what else?
Street legal with lots of functional mods that include: Yoshimura RS3 full exhaust system, JD jetting kit installed, K&N air filter (regular filter included also), 3X3 airbox mod, Sisneros Speedworks handlebar mounted on/off fan switch, Unibiker black aluminum radiator guards, Thumpertalk aluminum case guards, Thumpertalk HD skid plate, desmogged, Zeta aluminum handguards with deflectors, Supermoto Engineering front axle sliders, peg sliders, handlebar end sliders and billet rear axle blocks with sliders installed, EBC red brake pads, Continental Contiforce SM tires (75% tread remaining), Sisneros Speedworks battery bracket with battery box modded to use a YTZ10S battery for better amps/performance, DRC Edge LED tail light assembly, aftermarket turn signals, Carbon Fiber license plate frame, Custom MDF graphics imported from Japan, MSR extended shifter lever, manual cam chain tensioner and magnetic drain plug.
The bike has been adult owned by someone who has owned over 15 motorcycles and does his own maintenance. The bike has been serviced ever 500-700 miles. I just performed an oil change, new air filter and checked the valves and all are well within spec. The bike runs flawless and is in excellent condition. The bike has never been down or even tipped over. Currently the mileage is 5,XXX miles and I purchased the bike 9 years ago with under 1,000 miles on it from another adult owner that had many motorcycles. I am selling due to lack of use recently and the bike is too nice to be sitting around. The registration is good through August 2018.
Thanks for you interest and email me at SoCalMan922©gmail.com with any questions you have.
If you are interested in the bike but were looking for a bike with better offroad capability I also have a very nice set of Excel complete wheels with tires, rims, spokes, sprockets and everything ready to turn the bike into an offroad bike in 30 minutes. Please email me if you have any questions at the email address above. Thanks!

I'm thinking of freshening up my, mostly stock, engine a bit and wondering if any of the sub-$300 big bores kits are acceptable? They say they are Nikosil plated and one mentions moly coated piston.
Anyone have any insite as to why I shouldn't.?
