    head bolts ?

    I just got some used riva heads off ebay for my 03 1300r can i use stock head bolts or do i need riva bolts? Should i buy the girdle kit also? One more question which is better the riva fuel controller or the new r&d controller it looks easier to adjust on the go.

    If they are the black cast ones from Riva you need different length bolts, also there is a couple spacers you need for the exhaust U-pipe bracket.

    Make sure the bore fits your 1300

    OEM 1300 bolts work better then the Riva ones. 1200 bolts are wrong length.

    Like Oside said make sure they are the 84mm bore for your 1300.

    Controllers are pretty much the same if not identical.

    The controllers looks different plus the r&d is about 100 bucks more. Anyone try one or is it a waste of money? Thanks for the info on the head.
