Haha well I'm sure I know you then! Definitely a small world. Those were the good ol' days.
Anyways, the other guy is my roommate. We bought 2 maxis for a steal and decided we were gonna rebuild them fully. Everything is the same except for our top end kit. I'm not trying to beat him, but I am trying to get my bike to run like his and hit the hard Powerband like a 2 stroke should!!
My bike seems to run rich overall, through all ranges. It ran better with my 1 base gasket (.5mm black one), one head gasket, and the hi hi comp head. Low-end was great, but it topped out at 37 and didn't rev out. My new setup is 2 thick base gaskets (.5mm each) and one thin (3 total) paired with a head gasket and the touring head.
I've read on treats reviews of this kit that one guy had the best luck with .5mm of base gasket, no head gasket, and a hi comp head. The Piston apparently is 1mm above the exhaust port, but he said that's how he got the most power. Anyone else try this?
