You're right it seems like they just made new stud holes. You need a different head though and that's what always stopped me. It's like 250-300 for the kit (if you can find it) and the head. Never tried it tho so can't say anything about spacing on it.

Listen to Terry he speaks the truth. Check his builds, he knows his stuff.

Get a pipe, proma circuit seems better than techno circuit as far as performance is concerned. Depends what you want in the end though. Circuit pipe is gonna be nice for city blasting.

Get a bigger carb, at least a 15.15, 16.16. I wouldn't go past a 19 with that stock kit.

Once you get a solid set up tuning a pipe and carb on that kit. Read as much as you can about porting and then read some more. If I was in your shoes I'd try to get my hands on another stock cylinder if possible. That way if you mess up your porting as you get ballsier with it, you have a back-up.
