Yeah, couple of steps missing:

- Chamfer the ports to minimize ring snag.

- Polish the exhaust to maximize vroomage.

-Check your squish and adjust, if necessary, by grinding & polishing the head. Check when hot as well, things expand.

- Check your ports at BDC to make sure they are all the way open. If not, add a gasket to the bottom of your jug.

- Ring gap (mentioned in another post).

- check sparkplug clearance, get shorter throw if needed.

- Lube all surfaces before assembly!

- check your torqued bolts after a short ride.

- Break it in with regular, non-synthetic oil, at around 32:1 - jet accordingly.

- Keep it under 3/4 throttle for a hundred miles.

- Plug chop, rejet, then plug chop again. If you change anything, plug chop again.
