of course there is, don't you think I know that? Not every job is flow tested because you can only compare an A head to a B head as the final finish is too much effort. I've had many heads flow tested here in the UK.

it's a messy horrible job. if you don't believe me - have a go yourself.

No thanks, wasn't doubting it's a messy job.
The professional I used flow tests EVERY head he works on. So you port one head then copy every other you do? Interesting.

I have done three styles of porting and had them checked. I don't do it proffesionally. has the man you go to done 4 heads (one more than me) then? has he done one Husaberg head more than me and flowed the valves?

if he is a generic porter he will know what he wants and doesn't have 4 previous Husaberg jobs. bang goes your theory.

Sorry didn't really understand most of that?
The tuner I use has probably done hundreds of porting jobs! Last time I was there the bench was covered with everthing from BSA, Jawa and Japanese heads including a works Suzuki team's.
A good tuner such as Thumper Racing will ask what the customer wants and not do a generic job as you suggest.
It's irrelevant how many Husaberg heads a given tuner has worked on, it only matters that the tuner flow tests each one to the customer's requirements.
I have a couple of home ported heads here I bought from sidecar racers, they may be yours, and they do not flow as well as the head I had tuned by a professional, FACT.
My advice to the OP is go to a professional such as Thumper Racing.

Dave at DJH said "Porting runs $250, I would warn you on that 505 gains will be very small as they are a beautiful piece to start with"

Looks like the 650 and 501 will head to Thumper Racing sometime soon.

each head was an improvement on the other. how does your BSA head help here?

you have no right to presume I did a ScX head?

look why don't you just fuck off, I've never done sidecar crossers heads, well one and i have it back here and it's mine. I have a Husaberg engine producing over 100bhp in Norway and talk from pricks like you is cheap.

if you're just going to throw insults out all the time go talk to yourself, I don't like you because your a smartarse when you haven't done anything yet you know it all.

your a big mouth

Here we go again!
Taffy's MASSIVE ego ruins another thread!
When exactly did I insult you? If you cannot except any other opinion other than your own I would suggest it is you who needs to look at yourself.
Would you tell me to f##k off to my face troll? We have met by the way.

Apologies to the OP and the forum in general it shouldn't come to this.

It's water off a ducks back.
Most forums have a troll like Lord Taffy it's just a shame he's allowed to get away with the foul abuse he spouts on here.
I dread to think how many members take a break from the forum such as yourself but never come back! This is one of the best forums I'm a member of, the advice and technical knowledge here is fantastic, all given for free with no agenda.
Lord Taffy can type what he likes in his garden shed, I don't need his 'products' or 'services'. He's still more than welcome to tell me to f##k off to my face though!p
