sure, but for being quite a bit too rich, 42 isn't preposterous. Now if
it was 35...

Yes he's done cars back mostly in the 60's, 70's and some 80's. but is
big into bikes. Ran a race team in FIA europe supersport etc.

Suzuki G2 intakes. it's the wildly common G1->G2 mod.

no earthly clue. I just did the cam swap. Seemed simple enough.

I followed the directions for the cam swap and checked stuff a couple
times. now I guess I could be off by a tooth... Any way to really tell?
I marked the pins with ink so I would know where the timing marks
should be and AFIK no slips occurred. I've done cam swaps before albeit
on inline twins, and 4's so the concept isn't entirely new to me.

oooh, a guy in Orlando. That I can do.
