    1060 Big Bore

    A few weeks ago I was down at Eurosports, formally Martin Eurosports, to have my suspension tuned up. While there I was talking with Bill Himmelsbach about the 1060 Big Bore kit. I must say I am very tempted to drop off my RSV come Fall and let him work his magic. Just wondering if anyone has had Bill at Eurosports do a big bore kit for them. Or anyone else that has had a big bore kit done, how do you like it? Its a pricing thing, so I would liketo hear some opinions before making a decision one way or the other.

    It's worth it, but I would put lighter wheels on first. The bike will handle so much better, that it will feel 100% faster.

    I already love how thi sbike handles, especially since Eurosports did my suspension. What has my attention on the big bore kit is more mid range power.

    If we can meet for a ride this summer some time, you are welcome to trade bikes and see if you like it enough to have it done.

    DC Metro.

    I've been wanting to do a nice PA back country ride though. Lets work something out for the future via a PM.

    No longer Martin Eurosports. Now just "Eurosports" but that's academic.

    Very nice people to me, and Bill will do a top job on your engine....but I know Mr. Ckruzel had a bad experience with their service dept. and that's unfortunate so I can understand his feelings.

    You can ship the bike to Amauri, and I suppose it's worth asking him via a PM the total price. You can then PM me and I will give you what MES charged me.
