Building a good Mod Honda is a science as McMahon has said…  It’s lots of things and they all have to work together…

You can’t “bore” a nikasil cylinder without replating it, and it’s not legal in any kind of karting….

Case prep was a big part of it, porting the cases and cutting and welding the kick starter hump for a straight intake would probably make the biggest change, along with a good pipe and a stock 99 ignition advanced all the way, run a TM 125 piston, shim the cylinder up, and tighten the head up.  That’s the way Banke had us run them until he came out with the programmable ignitions, albeit with RS125 pistons…

All that and the stock Honda guys will still be faster!!!!  :)
