    Raider (Break) IN

    ..I have been absent for a while just working on my ski and testing, TIM JUDGE.....is the real deal , I dont even have my JetWorks on yet , and i cant explain how hard this Raider pulls out of the hole....I only hit it hard (ONE) time , after the all afternoon break in.........I ran 6850 across the chop.. , it was still pulling when I let off......I dont really try to top out on the chop....then ..DISASTER.... ."duhh.duhhh..duhhh..duhh...", it was running on 2 cylinders.pulled to the shore. and checked what I could, but didnt bring the compression tester, so after 6 hours in the sun and fun we went home. LONGEST RIDE IN A LONG TIME....when I checked the compression , I HAD 155....155..( 0 )......you dont know how much I wanted the guage to be wrong,or the valve core messed up !!!, so after a LOT of "bad words".I pulled the head and .....ALL WAS PERFECT, the cylinders were perfect ,the pistons perfect, no scratches...then I looked at the head and found a "HOLE"..in the dome !!!! , I was so relieved it wasnt something else....soooooooooooo..what happened is , the Triton 1 piece head comes with domes that make it around 200 psi, so to get it to work, I had to get the dome cut out, .well the dome was cut so thin and I believe the machinist ,hit the edge, too much causing the "CAST" alluminum head to punch a really small hole in one spot..... and the pressure did the rest, so I am running a milled stock head ,squish is real close to being right and the compression is good also, this Raider makes you wonder if there is an end to the throttle..it blows my mind .I am going today after work on ripple water to GPS... (THIS IS GOING TO BE A ...REALLY..LONG DAY)

    That head was pretty, but now you have a sleeper look to it and there is nothing wrong with that.
