How much horsepower can porting and polishing add?

How much HP gain from porting heads? How much HP does a port and polish give you? Head porting is probably the single most critical piece of adding HP. you can gain 20-30 from a really good port job.

Where are the ports on a four stroke engine?

Unlike on a two-stroke, four-stroke porting is done in the head. There are no ports in the cylinder wall of a four-stroke. To properly port the head on a four-stroke requires an understanding of how the air is drawn in and out of the intake and exhaust ports.

What does the cylinder head shop do for a motorcycle?

The Cylinder Head Shop carries out porting and gas flowing for all 4 stroke, motorcycles, automobiles and others.

Can a four stroke engine be used in racing?

Stroking a four-stroke engine also increases the displacement (making the bike illegal for AMA Pro racing). To stroke an engine, a tuner relocates the big-end bearing further outboard on the crank halves. In most cases, the connecting rod is shortened the same distance that the big end bearing is moved.

Why are dimples used in cylinder head porting?

In a port, we are looking to create a situation where fuel stays off the wall of the port. So the dimples would (in theory) help create this boundary layer of air that would keep the fuel off the wall and in suspense and atomized. First off, more than likely you have an engine with modern fuel injection if your reading this.
