    1060 big bore kit???

    Right guys, looking for some info here!!

    What are the real world pro's and con's of this?? I suppose my main worry is reliability and whether the cost (how much are we talking here) outweighs the benefits??

    If i do it, it will be on the small valve 2000 model engine, so again, is this really a viable option?

    i'm thinking of doing it too alongside the turbo! cost-wise it's 1450 dollars without transport. no reliability issues because the pistons are the same weight as the original... my street mille is a 2000 too

    Andi,

    We are doing 1103 kit's ready to fit for 1500 exchange for your existing barrels. These have been well tried for reliability on street and track bikes without any problems, we are in the process of building 2, one mine and one a very trick customer bike (think 15,000 spent on a factory, details to come soon) and will have one on the dyno in around 2 weeks, so watch this space.

    i had my race engine in at southern cross motorcycles having the 1060 done when i had the tri colour

    i had the cp kit to go in, but on strip down of engine to commence work they found damage on the heads so i didn#t go through with it in the end

    You want to work the head for optimum, slot the cams, have the bigger valve heads & something else i can't rememer now
    would of been 150bhp ish & 95lbft ++ if i remeber right

    If you are going to the expense of a big bore kit i'd fit 04> heads as these flow better than any earlier heads as stock basically sp heads

    guys on af1 have done it...not that hard

    you'd get the real benefits of the 1060

    and would be cheaper then having the standard heads flowed ported polished whatever they need
