If and when I ever do it...I'll get the 100" pistons with a set of 1500 cams. That is the most cost effective way to do it IMO!
It's about $1000 -1200 for the piston kit without the cams, and a set of new 1500 cams. 1500 cams are the most bang for the buck period...on the 1600s! http://www.riderforums.com/mean-streak-performance-upgrades/77531-1500-cam-shaft-1600-engine.html3G seems like too much for too little
Actually...the power is really similar to stock off the bottom...with a noticeably better power curve on top. The 1600 will have better low end than the 1500 with the same cams.The 1500 cam is more aggressive so you lose some low end in exchange for the top end. My 1500 really comes alive at 3k but off idle seems like a lopey cam.

Calculations show only a small increase in hp with 5 more cui and increase from 9:1 to 10:1.
The real power is in the headflow. $300 and you can have a complete set of 1600cc heads already cleaned up. you just need to lap the valves. Sell your current heads for the same price and its a wash. That was my plan at least.
Don't know of anyone using it but it's from an outfit called turbo tec. I just want to get rid of this vagueness in the clutch. Probably going to look at judge washers. $30 vs $200 for thatAnyone familiar with the Thunder "Reali" Spring Clutch
