milled head or Riva?
I made the decision to modify my head on my 06 gpr. My question is whether to do a stock milled head or buy aftermarket. Is there any benefits of one vs another?
My current mods are...
Jims FF plate
Solas 14/20 DF
Carbon Tech Reeds
My rpms are a bit light for where I need to be and I am around 70gps'd in chop. I ride Jersey bays and Ocean and never see glass.

I have tried several aftermarket heads on several platforms. For the GPR's I prefer the milled OEM head. Get it done by the right person and it will out perform the aftermarket's and not require any special hose routing gasketing etc.

I was thinking of using Jim again, he did such a great job on my plate, and he was very helpful with questions I had. I just wanted to be sure it was an acceptable way to go.

milled is stronger than aftermarket it...
biggest pro i heard/see in aftermarket is looks....
But you can just spray paint your head gold.... and it'd be just as cool

I have a couple Jim's plates and love them. I have not had a head done by Jim. I have used Lowell and Pro-Tec I do not reccomend Pro-Tec as the guy who ran the shop is no longer there.

Hay Bill, is 30 tho off correct ?? I think i read this some where. Also with only 30 off you dont have to do anything with the squish.
