    34nineteen, this is my 2nd motor with the 1050 kit. Canít give you much review of this motor but my previous motor was an animal. With head work, xb12 tb, header, and Proper Tuning the 1050 kit will rip. Highly recommended. Probably wouldnít see a huge gain of doing the 1050 kit by itself though

    Oh ya. I'm talking about the brake ducts. Key piece of information there.

    Looks are subjective, IMO, I like it!

    There is flow analysis that proves there's better air flow outside of a spinning object, so it should work to cool the brakes better if that what you need. That said, I put one on the EBR and it still hates trail-braking too much

    Motor is ready! Unfortunately its gonna be 2 weeks before Dan and I can meet. In the meantime, I redid my breather reroute lines using black nylon braided hose and black AN fittings. Pretty happy with it.

    Ah ok. I was gonna say I thought the front wheel is kinda mandatory.
    I like the ducts as well. I have them on my SX. Cause they look cool
