    Shaving head xl1200

    Will shaving the head give me better performance? How much could I remove? What would I have to change if I did shave the head?

    You should gain a little performance, as your hair is creating some drag. A bald head should cut through the air better.....Sorry I couldn't help myself.

    If you mill the head can you still run 87 octane?

    No, at 150 psi you should run 93( added timing also), 87 on a stock 125 psi,
