44 days until race day and i still have a lot to accomplish on this build, and need as much seat time as possible.
Yesterday we bored to m7, tapped, and installed new studs.
Fyi for people thinking of running the watercooled head: bore to m7. The m6 studs that are recommended are garbage. Buy the m7x125mm Polinis, REALLY nice quality and no need to clean up the threads.
Running grade 8 hardware and Nord Lock.
Next step is to make sure my piston is clearing the exhaust port. Then torque the top end down and build a pipe on Sunday. Then leak test it.
