Well... I dropped my warrior off to get a nice port and polish job at a local atv shop. All they do are emgines. PR Racing Engines is the name and Eric the owner has been doing this stuff for 45 years so I think my warrior is in good hands. For those who have the port and polish what kinda gains did you notice. More bottom end than top. Did you feel both top and bottom gains. The reason I went w/ the p&p is cuz I was pushin an extra 50cc's through that little stock hole and Eric highly reccomended it for some really good power gains. ;D

Well it is hard for me to say what my individual experiance with JUST a port and polish got me due to me getting the oversized valves, .430 cam, and springs at the same time. But I will say from experiance (watching Dyno Results) and my bike after I got it back is DAMN! Good Port & Polish work is well known to do wonders!

*By the way I got these 6 LED light strips (bright as ****) on ebay for 15.00$ each in blue. I will be using your idea - accent lighting for the motor area. ;D

Thought about that, but I ride to illegal areas on state land at night, so too much attention can be bad news, especially with those bright little f*ckers! :cool:

I dont know...It was kinda close to the battery. It was a conveinient spot I guess. And... I dint have to worry really about flippin them off and on all the time so its not that big of a deal.
