I am trying to decide what to do next on my build. I want to get a FCR or port and polish the head. I can't afford to do both at the same time so it is one or the other for now. I will do both eventually but would like to know which to do first. This is for a 05 used for trail rideing and XC. So far this is what i have done to the motor.

HC STG 2
CP 13:1
Dasa Exhaust
Sparks filter
HRC lid.

Porting will more than likely add power........

FCR will more than likely add to a 'crisper' throttle response, but not necessarily any more power.....

the decision is yours....

As said above, if those were my choices, I'd get the head ported.

BTW- how much time do you have on the rings?

If mine was down that far, I would probably go ahead and throw a new set of rings in it while I was there.

Later- Kris

I have under five hours on the rings so there staying in for a while yet. I think I might just do the FCR this summer and wait to tear it down this winter to send the head out. Plus at this point I have plenty of power for what I am doing but better throttle response would be a plus (ie getting the front end light). Where is the best place to get a FCR that I can just bolt on. I want to keep the hot start would like to not have to mess with tracking down a 06 airbox. I was looking at the Sparks but if there is a better deal out there I am open for that.

Thanks for the help.

That was a bit odd :dunno: ....you ask for opinions and everyone unanomously agreed on a P&P.... then you choose to do the exact opposite.

Oh well...it's your choice and money :yes

Kind of what I was thinking.

well in this situation i would do the fcr since the rings are so new, then once you need new rings again do a piston and pnp the head.

I agree......

but for "trail riding" and "X-country riding"....I believe the FCR would suit him better....
