Re: 1216cc 1127 motor - oil pressure / temps
We never heard from the OP again.
There is a lot of misinformation and misconceptions out there about Top End Oil Kits...they were intended for big block monster motors (86mm+), when you have to machine so much out of the upper case, in order to provide clearance for huge cylinder sleeves, that you end up losing the factory top end oil circuit, below where the stock block would sit...
Or otherwise have modified the lube circuit.
What makes them so popular is...They aren't all that expensive, they are an easy bolt on, they usually have some nice shiny anodized fittings and most of us think they look cool.
Again, they offer no benefit on a stock or mild motor.
I think they look bitchin' on 1500cc+ GS drag bike engines.
