Sexy bits

The idea was to build good, reliable power without going too crazy. Carrillo rods for security, Megacycle X10 cam (not the most powerful but great for mid range), Mike Rich stage 2 heads, coated bearings and lifters, balanced crank to 51%, 41mm carbs. Timing chain was retained. The Sport 1100 flywheel and clutch were kept as they are pretty light in stock form (about 8 lbs all in if I remember correctly). It's always tempting to build the biggest, most powerful engine but the limiting factor in my first season on the Guzzi (2008) was my riding ability, not the power....
