Thanks for the positive feedback guys. The vision was mine but the execution was really all Naz. Re: the Wiz kit and things like the rear wheel- I actually love the 14in rear wheel. It allows the use of the crazy Shinko rubber, which the 16in version of which would never fit out back like you said without giving up something critical (to me) like the starter. This bike is not about going 75mph, it's about ripping around town and alleys at real world speeds with great ease. It also DESTROYS hills right now. All with a wider range of variation than stock (TJT plate) and a taller final drive than stock (PX50 race gears). The bike does just about 50 right now and I'm pretty darn satisfied with that.

Now on the cylinder part- I started playing with these Wizard kits back when I first got the bike, and it's just the jug I happened to have that we decided to try the improvements on and try to make everything work well and run cool with the stock Honda oil injector. After all, what's an Urban Express Deluxe without it's starter, turn signals, sweet 12v lighting, etc? Once I'm satisfied that all the mods we've done work great and my injection is keeping up with things, then we can start looking into moving beyond the Wizard kit to something even zippier like maybe an Athena. Also I think you asked about stud spacing and yes, Naz did need to hog out the holes on the head to fit the Honda spacing and we switched to Puch cylinder studs instead of the bolts originally holding things together.

Below is a short Runkeeper GPS track of the bike riding around the neighborhood with an air filter on it and after downjetting a bit. I'm currently at a 175 main (very faint four stroking at WOT) and am about to drop down to a 165 and see how that runs next. I spotted a reading of 49.3mph on the flats on the section of ride right around mile 1.15 and rode up and down hills like I was on a two wheeled Billy Goat. I'll post some video of the bike riding soon, but it's pretty much the funnest thing ever.
