    Single or Duals?

    There is some truth to that but I believe it's on a moded motor....My opinion, is why make your bike look a year older with a single????

    Jet to Pro Circuit jetting specs and you will get a better throttle response as well....Remove the float baffle to.

    Hot Cams Stage 2

    I have the stage 2 and love it. Hard to tell exactly what the cam did since I also put a JE 13:5:1 piston in at the same time. It definately pulls harder and I only had to change the jetting.

    Best front tire from dunlop

    The RR's are very soft but boy does that thing hook up. I did have a problem though. I within 2 rides I was tearing off all the side lugs. Met the Dunlop rep at Anaheim 1 and he sent me a new one right away. (great customer service) Talked with another rep at San Francisco and he admitted they are having issues with the RR due to them being so soft. Who cares they stick and besides, who pays retail for tire? I get them for 50 bucks! tickets and food at the movies cost that much.......

    Suspension clickers

    get new springs. Check your race sag and free sag and see if you can get them where they need to be, but I have a feeling you will have to re-spring.

    Depends on where you ride...For a wide range I like the 952, but I run the 756 most of the time.

    How did the clutch basket look? Was it serrated looking?

    What worked for you.

    To give you a simple answer, yes you must constantly check and shim ti valves. You cannot start one of theses motors and not in some way start wearing valves. They heat up, cool down and slap valves seats changing the shape and length as you ride. Of course re-shimming is a band-aid that extends the life for a long time with no harm. Who has money to replace them every few weeks????? Thats why they make shim kits.....

    good baseline suspension settings

    You must change your spring rates to obtain proper settings.
