Re: Big Valves and porting?

Jim,
Is there a guide or YouTube video or something to show where and how much porting is done? I have wanted to do some porting but don't know how.
Thanks,

Re: New Focused-Beam LED Headlights

Sounds like your headlights are mis-aligned and/or out of focus. Poorly aimed headlights will be aimed at oncoming traffic. Poorly focused headlights make a bright glow that goes everywhere...

Re: Small mirror, big blind spot

For what it is worth:
