Yeah, if it seems like things are going slow, this is why. They're absolutely swamped.

Another update:
Piston - Apparently I did a poor job of measuring parts when I took the engine apart. Once assembled on the rod, the piston I selected was 2mm below the deck according to Travis. We've switched to using a KTM 560 SMR piston from Wossner. Having it sent out for Microblue.

Custom rod - Upon fitup, Travis discovered that the rod was contacting the cases. He had to do some trenching.

Carb - I got a Christmas bonus at work so I've decided to pull the trigger on boring the carb out.

Cam sprocket - We decided to switch to the steel cam sprocket that Bushie supplied the part number for in my hybrid engine thread.

Progress - As it stands right now, the bottom end is together, the head work is complete, the carb work is complete and all Travis is waiting for is the cam sprocket to arrive and the piston to come back from Microblue.

Jetting - Travis's website mentions that the carb overbore comes with custom jetting so I'm hoping this'll get me in the ballpark. I do feel that it's necessary to mention, as an indication of how cool Travis and the folks at Thumper Racing are, that he offered to weld up a sensor bung on my exhaust and provide a wideband to help get it dialed in so long as I decide to do the break-in near his shop. And, since his shop is near some of the best motorcycling in Nevada, I think that I'll take him up on it.

Pictures to come once I get the engine back.

I just received an email from Travis saying that the engine's done. We're going to talk on Monday to square up the finances. That gives me the weekend to find a buyer for my spare kidney as I expect this to be expensive.

I can't wait to read your ride review/report. I'm also collecting funds for Travis to do his magic to turn my blown 650 into a jewel 700. I estimated 10K Canadian. So far got only 4😞
