Head Work

Labor and machine work includes:
All refurbished head procedures include glass beading and inspection.
After the inspection, the valve guides are removed and new guides are installed with our Cycle X procedure. The guides virtually follow the same path and makes valve jobs a breeze. Many machine shops use drifts to remove and install guides. Drifting in valve guides can cause 2 problems. First, the valve guides never seem to follow the same path in the head as the removed guides. Second, the inside bore of the drifted guides can cause a "S" bend on the inside. This "S" bend problem is generally seen on bronze guides installed with a drift.

After reaming and honing the valve guides, the seats are given a multi-angle valve job to manipulate the lapping line or contact area where needed. Once the contact area is in the desired area, the valve job is finished off with a 75 degree cut angle approx. .240 deep on the intakes to greatly improve flow. This area of the seat is the most important and is used by top engine builders in the auto and motorcycle industry. 
Finally, The 45 degree is touched off with 150 finishing green stone. Once again, used by top engine builders.
The head is then surfaced to insure flatness and head gasket sealing.
Cleaned, install valve guide seals and install springs as required.

#6 Head option (Big port) introduction.

We decided to reproduce our hot-street, race head for you go fast folks. These cylinder heads have modified, machined large intake spigots. Honda CB750 heads only allow the intake ports to be opened up to a certain amount before breaking through to threads or atmosphere. Epoxies are then needed. These heads will be offered in "K" and "F" versions and are specifically designed to use our Mikuni RS 34mm or bigger carburetors, large camshafts and big bore kits.

"JMR" Mike Rieck Porting
joins the Cycle X team.

We are proud to announce that several JMR cylinder heads will be on the shelf nearly ready or ready for installation.

Nearly ready?

Yes, some of the stage 3 and 4 heads will need to be checked or modified for larger camshafts and possible big bore combustion chamber modifications.
Mike's cylinder head port refinement and efforts are rarely seen nowadays.

These heads will complete a full line-up of world class cylinder heads including the JMR/Cycle X "big port" race heads.

 

Price to be announced.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Big Bore Combustion Chamber Blending

This combustion chamber service will perfectly match your larger cylinder bore to your combustion chamber.

This procedure is done to any bore size and is accomplished on our milling machine and then hand finishing for extreme accuracy.

F2 Drain Hole Modification

As great as Honda is and was...a mistake was made.
4 cylinder studs are exposed through the fins in the head which could allow dirt and road debris to enter the lower end.
Honda tried to correct this problem by putting large O rings at the bottom of the studs to prevent water and debris from entering the motor.
Here is what we do, drain holes are drilled and honed to accept brass tubes. Brass tubes are pressed into place and problem solved.
