    Epoxy power valve openings shut?

    I remember reading a build once where they epoxied the powervalve opening shut to eliminate the power valves on a big bore 1200r cylinder. Has anyone done this?

    yeah...but, you have to port to match your new powerband and the epoxy is not permanent by any means. I would just get a set of 1300 non-pv cylinders instead of going through all the fuss of non-pv transforming. I know guys who big bore 1500 pistons and do this because of the larger cc's. But I don't like the aspect of having epoxy in a hostile environment...it's just matter of time before kaboom.
