the way I read this, your having a specific go at me for doing any old work. you don't know what I do or how i do it. in the next post you imply WRONGLY (because your a fucking big mouth) that I

The professional I used flow tests EVERY head he works on. So you port one head then copy every other you do? Interesting.
why would I not copy my best result? for a man running a bloody roadbike for christsakes? who just wants 90% result for 50% OF THE COST? i MEAN WHY?

THAT STATEMENT IS THE ONE THAT GETS RIGHT UP MY GOAT. you go casting fucking statements like that and then hold yer hands up going: 'who me? little old innocent me?

while you run a standard cam you don't even need a porting job.


when you win two championships in one season against people with double the CC and 50% more power you can talk. now have you done thaT?

HOW ABOUT YOU TWELL EVERYONE HOW YOU KNOW HOW i PORT MY HEADS?

Taffys just blunt speaking here, I wouldnt take hes blunt in person, ie I dont know. I know a lot of blunt speaking uk peaps though, so who knows?

However Id like to know more about the 100hp engine. it would take over 400 fps at 28 depression, rather intriguing.
309 is good for 72 on 565cc and 390 is good for 94 on 599, the latter is cheat as its a ducati twin.
I typically post everything about my work, just be open about it and customers will come
Thanks from bushmechanic and canolman

I've no idea? Squinting through one eye with a Dremel? Who cares? The OP was asking about a USA tuner. How much do you charge for one of your porting jobs by the way?

A track bike running an 08 cam would not benefit from being ported? Interesting claim? So a before and after on a Dyno would show no difference? Also an experience rider would not see an improvement in lap times? Again, an interesting claim?

Can you give any details on your 100hp engine? I think we'd all pay for that!

What is the relevance of the picture of the mullet haired gentleman with the Ducati in this thread? In your cock waving contest is three better than two?

Best regards,
Big Mouth.

Forums can be a confusing place with lots of people talking. As we age, we can get a little cranky and less inhibited. This is no cause for worry and most people understand that this is a natural side effect of the aging process and in most cases you will be given the requisite patience. However, Taffy, you seem to be having enough trouble with this that here's a piece of advice: When in doubt, try looking up at the post title to see if you're on topic.

Furthermore, perhaps your family would be more interested in your keepsakes and photographs as a general topic. I believe that would be a more appropriate venue.


Regarding the topic which is Thumper Racing and their head porting work: I don't recall anything but people speaking very highly of their work, that their knowledge is deep and working process thorough and all quality 100%, that they work with measured and documented changes to flow (as a matter of course, although not all vendors do), and that Travis is super pleasant to deal with.

Yes I can vouch for Travis, I've just purchased a third 610 big bore kit from him (2nd one was for a friend) quality and customer service has been great every time. If I lived in the states I'd send my head to Travis, but I don't so I sent mine to Serco in Brisbane. Even though I've been a difficult customer at times I've never been flamed out on a public forum.

Be nice to see some dyno before and afters.
