That does look painful! However, I'm intrigued by another feature I hadn't noticed previously, the use of studs in place of the head bolts. How do you manage to install the head? I have enough trouble doing so with just the studs on the underside. It looks like it would be almost impossible to get the pushrods in place and the head over the studs. I checked to see if I could do that with a 750 engine way back when, and concluded I couldn't make it work. Is there some trick to it, or is there something different in the dimensions of this 500 cc engine that allows it.

The barrel is a little shorter than stock so that makes the geometry of the headbolts and pushrods a little different. They are still a pain...

Any warranty on that pushrod? :lol:
