In my opinion the hybrids are a waste of money. I have smoked many of them with my current setup. My only regret is not doing it sooner. I had the same issues and I was losing races due to the Hondas out powering me, that's when I said enough is enough. You are much better off talking to Chris and you will have a better running engine, while still maintaining a lot of reliability. Chris def. has this motor figured out. My buddy with a Honda mentioned he noticed on the same sections of track that he is completely revved out and my motor just sounds like its cruising.Honda! Now you're talking ha.
I'm really thinking about buying a spare motor and letting him do his thing to it.
I've been chasing Honda type torquey power ever since I've owned this Ltr. I am pretty darn close now, but for what it is, I just think it should rip.
I can't get that damn crf powered hybrid power out of my head and that's what I want. I just love my Ltr and have too much invested to let her go.
There's always the option to put a crf into this bike but I lack the metal fab and welding equipment to do so.
