For what it is worth, Bob picked up ~8 wHP with his port job. I bet more could be had by extending the rev limiter with a port even with stock cams.

yeah by looking at cecil's dyno chart his made max hp at the rev limiter. when i spoke to kevin hunt (kws) a few years ago he said the stock valve springs were close to coil bind. i wonder if it would be safe to raise the limiter another 2-500rpm if bren tuning is able to flash the ecu..

yes, $750 and that includes dis-assembly , cleaning , porting , milling , reassemble and return shipping. since I'm promoting this for Bill I will handle and answer all questions for the bmw stuff. once i get mine assembled i plan to have him do my other head for exchange or purchase out right. if exchanged i will require a $500 deposit until the core is received.

i feel you will find this a very good deal as carpenter racing charges $1650 for this same service and doesn't include shipping.

Stupid question to follow...

What exactly would have to be sent? The entire motor? I'm not familiar with this process. Thanks.

I'm fairly certain BMW was running over 15,000rpm on their WSBK bikes. Have no idea if they were using different valve springs or cams, but I'd guess yes?
