Thankyou salvardoriRacing. I do remember that on the lower rpm's, there was stil alot of smoke coming out of the exaust stinger. I'l lean the LSN and try your reccomendation.

My guess would be that if the Ninja series and the Orion engines are any good, Novarossi's pricing will have to come down sooner or later.

They have been milking us long enough

I'm awaiting for the Ninjas too... Still using some 'old' Novas NSR's & RR's (Circa 04 - got 'too much engines' them and last weekend started break-in of the last two).

They hang on with actual JP's in 'non-stock' condition. The only ones who escape me are the Sirios Evo3 (they whine a lot and the NSR's cannot keep their pace at insane 'Sirio RPM's'). Sirio pipe is really good for NSR's, just check it.

Actually got a N12LS3 (they handed me very cheap), need to dismantle and put an eye and some hands over it to see how much can give it.

Please let me know the performance of the N12LS3, I'm tempting to get one for myself as well

as much fast as the other engines (sirio, picco, etc...)

very good mileage.........much bottom end and a little less RPM........I've been told that raising the sleeve by putting one 0.10mm shim under the sleeve (don't forget to deduct this shim from the others that go under the combustion chamber.....i.e: if you use 0.30mm shim you have to use 2 shims of 0.10mm thickness considering you have another 0.10mm shim under the liner) makes the engine reach higher rpm.........
just to mention, the REX LR3 (same as LS3) exhaust port height is 4.39mm while the older NS/NSR based engines (including JP, MAX, etc..) are 4.54mm

since it's just changing powerband I prefer taller gear ratio, maybe in a very open track this change will worth the try........
