I just can't leave anything alone. Thanks for the great feedback guys!! It's appreciated.
Might as well do the Level B heads, too. I just did the entire package, 107", TW555's, Level B heads.. did all the work myself. May sound like a joke, but rebuilding my engine was probably one of the easiest mods I've ever done. If you can turn a wrench, you can rebuild an engine.
The only special tools I needed was a ball-ended allen wrench to remove the throttle body (the angle for access is a bit awkward), and either a piston-ring compressor, or some wooden sticks to compress them in. If you can get your hands on the cam bearing removal/insertion tool, it makes the job a ton easier..else PepBoys or Autozone rents tools for free, and all you need is a 5lb slide hammer with a point-blank bearing attachment, and an old cam with a wooden hammer to get the new cam bearings in.
I sent my heads out before christmas, so naturally they were backed up on the return, it took like 3 1/2 weeks, but since it's snowing here in NJ, i didn't really care. Total time from start to finish was probably about 8-10 hours of labor.
The biggest pain in the *** of the entire project was either adjusting the pushrods, or having to stare at my bike while waiting to get my heads back, or having to stare at my bike because ITS DAMN SNOWING IN NJ.
