Well the 462 went well up the highway today. Seemed to run ok. No bogging but I didn't really want to lug it too much yet. Dont really know how to tell i its running lean? Pretty sure its ok.it didnt get too hot or anything. Man did I get some looks. Presumably from the demented Noise it makes now :thumbsup: It would be an understatement to say I'm happy with the build. I'm bloody stoked!! It goes like a scalded cat compared to before.

yeah ... after 4 years of dirt work i retired my 470 motor , i still have it and have had a few offers for it .

be warned ... if you ride on gravel like i do things can get loose real quick ! , in the sand you will be ok .

i find my 434 motor easier to ride on the gravel

Haha yeah I foun that out on my return trip. I took a gravel exit road. Next weekend I will be heading out the bush with my mates on their 450's. Should be interesting as it's quite soggy here in Tassie at the mOment. :thumbsup:.

I dropped the oil and took the 462 for a bash up the tiers today. Very happy with my motor!! In 5th gear it's still pulling like 2nd or 3rd all the way to the limiter! I think it's fair to say it's going to be good at ripping knobs off new tyres :thumbsup: I wonder if there are any other 462's in Tasmania.....

What parts did you end up with from Eddie?

Guessing the split the case/crank work was done here in AU?

Keen to see bigger pics on the head flow graph as I'm yet to get mine done.
