British Customs Performance Cylinder Head Update Service
The Hinkley Twin powering your Modern Classic is a thing of beauty. Its also an incredible building block for riders hell-bent on their pursuit of more power. The British Customs Performance Cylinder Head Update Service has been designed with this speciﬁc type of street rider in mind.Street riders performance needs differ from racers -- a usable increase in performance across the entire power band trumps unreachable top end, wide open gains.
To accomplish that task British Customs has developed the following polish and port process:
Cleaning and inspection -- The cylinder head is inspected for wear and tear.
Porting --The shape of the port is important to the performance of the head. The goal is to increase ﬂow by 10 percent while maintaining a good ratio of intake to exhaust ﬂow. We work the shape of the ports per the ap-plication and engine size.
Valve job -- To increase ﬂow, a 3-angle-valve job is performed on the valve seats and then hand blended to maximize ﬂow.
Blending ports -- Removes any edges, or irregularities in the ports to maximize ﬂow.
Polish the chambers -- Polishing the chambers is done to increase low lift ﬂow with a target number of 0 to 300,000.
