One thing I havn't heard mentioned is the oil cooler. I may be a noob to pit bikes but it looks to me like those billet ones wouldn't dissipate a lot of heat??

it is true that the billet oil coolers keep there heat but they are much stronger than the 'radiator style' oil coolers because they are prone to damage and once you damage a fin on the radiator style cooler you lose some cooling ability.

true!, the air hits billet cooler and jut stays there, the radiator style, the air hits and goes though taking the heat with it, if that makes sense

I honestly did not check the jetting, I put it on and it ran fine but I had to adjust the mixture a little, Was a bit rich

I bought one of those blue performance CDI boxes with the led light. Got a lot more kick-back when starting. Checked the timing with a light and found the timing ran full advance even at idle. Stock CDI works and advances fine. Blue box is on the shelf.
