Hi Will,

Don't know the 470's but the dual set up was great fun on my 650, enjoy.

Carl.

this probably doesn't translate at all but I once had an American call for parts from Amarillo. Amarillo! Amarillo!!! I said, "oh you must be so proud of the song: "Is this the way to Amarillo?" a 1971 hit for Tony Christie (which like all good septic tanks, when you have only one hit; just keep re-releasing it!).

he said: I'm sorry but I've never heard of it.
sheltered lives hey!

Would you be surprised to know that in US and in Canada we have many doubles even triples of the cities of the world. Mainly European ones. Bolton is just north-west of Toronto. Hey Taffy do you still have big bore kit 735? Valves 38mm?

So can you do 38 mm if I ship my head to you? How about porting and polishing, can you do that too? And do you stil have 735 kits? You can send me pm or reply here.

well I'll say one thing 100% for sure and that is that one good man should do the lot. if you are doing it properly you are;
removing the valves and guides
porting the head
having the valve seats either replaced or recut
cut the new valve seats
port the head around the guides and seats
cut the valve seats if caught when porting
refit everything

we no longer polish ports as such

we don't do an overbore kit but we are working on a 700cc bore AND stroke kit. I'm not a big fan of it,
