I was wondering how many km's till it needs new pistons, and if the set is prone to defects...

The info from Mototek states to replace the top end every 800-1200 miles. I was replacing the top ends on the stock engine approx. every 1500 miles, so it doesn't appear to be very different. I have so far put two race weekends on my new 316 engine (275 miles) and so far so good!

If you want to talk with the originator of the kit or read his posts, search on this site for Monson708. He has a complete 316 engine for sale right now!

We are running a 316 bike in CCS/CMRA this year.

Having raced a completely stock bike last year, I can say this 316 bike is much faster. The powerband is similar to stock, just stronger everywhere, and more torque. It drives harder out of turns, I'm now able to pass bike under power (even the mighty SV's) which is something new on this bike.

I know the kit's expensive so you'll have to decide for yourself, but I can tell you that it does work. It makes an already great racebike that much better.

I've never understood what class you would race a 316 in. I don't know the class structure for CCS, but in my local club a 316cc RS would put you in the 251-450 class. Wouldn't you be at a disadvantage against a 450? :rolleyes:

If you run CCS, it shouldn't affect your classes at all. The RS is already penalized into the Middleweight Sportsman class (instead of LW, where it belongs) because it isn't a street bike in the U.S. CCS Rules state as follows (from www.lrrsracing.com): (http://www.lrrsracing.com):)

LIGHTWEIGHT SUPERSPORT (Amateur & Expert Divisions)
Twin cylinder, liquid cooled 2-stroke, up to 450cc
NOTE: Ducati/Bimota/BMW Supermono/Woods Rotax are excluded.

LIGHTWEIGHT SUPERBIKE (Amateur & Expert Divisions)

LIGHTWEIGHT GRAND PRIX (Amateur & Expert Divisions)
