I am sure if you were to replace the internals later the factory parts would work fine. But if you replaced the sleeve it would not be modded anymore. Also I would recommend talking to Ed if you did replace a p/s to make sure the compression height would be the same. Sometimes when modding they alter the sleeve timing and you may need to add or remove shims when replacing a sleeve.
Personally I would try to spend the extra $ on a speed, pro mod or a Jx ninja, the coated cranks last alot longer.

You can replace the internals with stock parts no problem.. If you used a new stock head button, then you would have to run the stock shimming (1 Silver & 1 Copper). If you run the eb mods button just 1 copper.

Ed told us a couple weeks or so ago that he would still mod a V-spec if we sent it to him. I don't know if he will work on old ones, but he said he would mod a new one. He is the only one that can answer your questions directly.

BTW, I love my EB V-spec. Tons of power, and long run times.

10-4 Gotcha. When my V-spec goes, I'll probably be in line for one of those JS motors. I like the EB motor I have now.
