 same old engine as before...I just went .010" over with a set of +4cc CP domed pistons. My last set of pistons were Diamond Racing +4cc.
Tuned by Jim Kennedy.

Looks great Ray , was looking forward to seeing the results . How do you like the injectors that was installed . I really like the power your bike makes . Must be a blast to ride.  What I really like about the build is it makes torque down low and keeps pulling . It makes power and torque in the area where I ride . I don't short shift but it the way I prefer a engine to pull in a heaver bike .

We're you having issues south the other pistons Ray?  Good job on this.  I heard Jim went at tuning full time.   If this is true that's awesome for him. Support your local Indy.

  Chad...yes I had poor ring seal the last two times it was on the dyno. I knew it, and when I found a good amount of oil inside my t/body I knew it was time to go .010" over to fix it. And no to Jim tuning full time. He is still working at GE...but the plant is scheduled to be shut down. I didn't ask him when...but I think sometime later on this year it will be closing.

  Jim...I ended up staying with the yellow band 6.2 injectors.

As usual, very impressive.  :chop:

Any ideas as to why you didn't get a good ring seal on the Diamond piston/ring pack?

 I think in the beginning the Diamond pistons did seal...but I listened to a guys suggestion and had the pistons coated and the cylinders ball honed. After doing that...the ring seal went down hill. I did run it like that for two seasons...but the ring seal got progressively worse and it got to the point where going .010" over was my best option.
  Randy @ Hyperformance got me the custom CP pistons and he bored and honed the cylinders to fit for me.
Oh...by the way...I used a .040" head gasket this last go around. I was going to use a .036" but in the end opted for the .040" h/g to set the compression at 11.08:1.

  Ray I knew that you have a outstanding set of heads and the difference now is ring seal and tune I guess . You engine makes more horse power with less camshaft and that is what I really like .

That really is incredible output with the comp at only 11.08:1. The heads & exh., & cams are working extremely well together.

  Brian...I just ran it into town to run a few errands for the wifeepooh. This was my 1st ride on it since it was tuned.
It runs fantastic.  :smilep:  It's got tons of power every where at the slightest twist of the throttle. It has no hesitation at all and delivers the power instantly. I bet this thing will be an arm stretcher when I really try to turn the wick.
  Now I just have to figure out an excuse to tell the wife so I can get it back out and go for a longer ride.  :hyst:
 
  Robin...yes it is 4.145" bore now...and the heads are 93.5 cc's. I would have to say no to keeping up with that T143.
Randy actually sold his bike with that T143 in it to a fellow member on the forum here. Those T143's are in a league of their own. They are monsters.

I agree, it's a great example to follow. Mine won't make what Ray's does I think simply because he has a better exhaust, and the cams are a little different timing wise.

I'm glad to hear Randy sold the red beast. I saw it for sale and started drooling all over the place. I was sure insurance was going to total my bike and I was all set to write the check. They decided it was worth fixing. Probably worked out better for me. Someone got an absolute monster of a bike. I hope they post up updates on that thing.
