Introduction
#1
Big Grin 
Hello everybody. I just want to introduce myself here. I have an old x4 which I purchased several years back. I have had allot of fun with this bike and continue to to this day. I spend allot of time tinkering with it. The bike is really my hobby and I do love to play around with different mods both cosmetic or performance. I can,t seem to leave it as is. Its a disease I think and I really don,t want the cure.  Smile  At this point I am working on the engine side mainly. I have installed the cbr 1000f cams. and ported the head. Bored to 81 mm with JE CBR1100XX pistons. The exhaust is an 4-2-1 but might be a tad large on the primary pipes at 1 7/8 inch dia. The old carbs were replaced with a set of FCR 39s. I don,t want to get into to much detail but the next thing the bike needs is a better cooling system since i can find myself in traffic on occasion and idling is not where it like to be. 
I could go n and on but I will cut it short here.
Along with being helpful to others if possible I would really like to connect with someone who has already been where I am tryng to get. That is they have already done the performance mods and have results. For example, I do have some concerns with my con rods.  I don,t know that the stock con rods can keep thing in place that well above 8 or so thousand rpm. I have searched for aftermarket can rods online .. zip, nothing. Also, the cam timing.. what works best? 
Very interesting stuff indeed. 
Anyway. I wish you all a very happy new year and the very best going forward. 

Take care, 
HW

We don't  mind if you go on about your mods, i am sure there may be others looking to take the same route as yourself.feel free to post in the x4 section.
We love pictures.

Hi Hermann,

No doubt you've found the X4 pages here by now - post away and let's see what happens.

Welcome to the forum. We have another X4 buff Sam but I do not think he has done anything close to where you are going. Do you do all your own work or use specialists. There are some good engine blokes out there who will usually be fine to offer advice to the amateur, they may be able to give you help with your con rod query. It may be a good idea to use a specialist for your cam timing if you are really unsure and cannot find an amateur bodge merchant who has been there before. I do know Sam knows his onions and may be able to help point you in some useful directions. meanwhile good to have you on board any pictures of your puppy will be good to see.
I am trying to care more about stupid people, but it's a struggle

See if you can find someone called Urbantiger, he posted on the old forum but never seemed to find the new one. He's on Facebook I seem to recall, I do seem to recall he's done a lot of what you've already done, maybe he's done more by now.
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it.

Hermann is having issues getting back onto this forum. He's emailed me to say he's not ignoring you.
