Any recent Experience with SBT?
I'm looking for a rebuilt cylinder head for my 2005 STX 12F, and I'm considering a rebuilt core replacement from SBT. I have read about some bad experiences with SBT. Is there any general consensus about recent experiences?
Also, a line on a replacement 12F head would be welcome too

Wow, the silence is deafening.
Wonder if it's like my mother taught me, "if you can'ty say anything good, don't say anything at all"

Well, all is said and done with my 2005 STX 12F.
I hydro locked the unit after towing it, and broke a valve in #4 cylinder. Wedged it in the intake port, 150 thou grooves in the seat, arghh. Considered the core replacement from SBT, but the guy I talked to couldn't talk proficiently about the part, so decided to try get it reapired locally.
I sent it to Mongoose Machine in Port Coquitlam, BC. Came back "spectacular".
Very tight, got it back together, has never run better.
