Hey everyone. I know this is an old chestnut but would appreciate any info. My 1052 is very old and tired (like myself). It still runs but is way down on power everywhere so I'm looking for a cheap and easy solution. Thing is now I'm old and slow the reality is I very rarely go above 6k but I do love low down torque. So should I just try to source a decent b12 motor , would it be cheaper than a big rebuild on my motor and would it's power delivery suit my last riding better ? Any thoughts?

An 1109 kit and some mild cams would wake it up.
What are you running for an exhaust?
How many miles on the 1052?

If you don't know the history of the B12, than you could be potentially looking at another project there as well.

It's a big standard 1052 with a stainless cobra system and has clocked up 100000m. I haven't done a compression test yet but she drinks oil and has lost all her oomph.
