    10.5-1 is too much compression for the 204`s,not surprised you have detionation & over heating

    Glad I had somebody to take the time and explain to me what to do before I do a build.
    And that is talk with a headman and builder before I took bought cams and parts I thought was great and have heads done and start putting a motor together.
    We are fortunate to have folks like Prodrag and baggerpaul here to help give us much needed advise.
    A headman has the knowledge to sit down and ask what you are lookin for out of yer build. And what you expect yer bike to do. And how much reliability you want in it.
    And a head man can help you more than the HD man or anybody.
    They know the geometry of the build and what will work together and what will not, or what will hurt the build
    These people are very valuable to us.

    unfortunatly theres alot of "baffle them with bullsh!t" guys out there,who still go by the "bigger is better"on cams or other aspects of a build(mostly guys who work for dealers)ALWAYS get more than 3 opinions on any build

    Ha I didn't either. I joined the site because I had a question about my bike, but it wouldn't let me ask it.. Oh well I'm on my 7th now :)

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Today I stopped by the indies shop and he told me that he had some goodies for me. I got my new wires, head gaskets and clutch ring in. I didn't get them to pick them up as I caught him just as he was getting ready to leave for the day as he had some other things to take care of. Just waiting on the new fuel valve.
    Soon, soon this bike will be back together. :cool:
