I got 95 hp out of an SV that ran a complete CCS mid-west season. Here are the components I used:
41 mm Flatslide Keihin's
Carrillo H beam rods
1 mm over JE pistons, custom made. Higher compression
Ported Heads <<<--- Very important to get a good engine builder to do the heads. They are worth a lot in hp!
Custom Valve Springs
Ti Valve keepers
Megacycle Stage 3 cams
Undercut magnafluxed tranny
My buddy now owns the bike and she still runs strong.
Carrillo rods are better than Falicon Knife from everything I have heard.
Also, if you ever damage a Carillo rod, you can send it back and they will fix it for cheap.
