Erm... 5 bills x 2 = 10bills. Go halves with a friend and you get a discount on the $498 price. In my case I would have to come up with the full amount

IMHO, this is totally screwed up marketing plot. They are throwing an obsolete cheapo engine (NS12P) (http://www.kawahara-racing.co.jp/NS12P.pdf) in there to justify a horrendous price for that Plus 2.

I am going to stay away from NR for now. Picco engines have become way too good to put up with crap like that, and they cost half as much.

I know from your postings in other threads that you are very concerned about the power of the JLR you just ordered.
Since you are coming from an R12S1, the difference is going to be huge. Hope you can handle it
If you can, get a Mega 2607 pipe for it and it's going to rip big time!

Yes, I'm talking about all the latest Picco based engines out there:
Picco Evo3, IDM, LRP Team spec3, Mega DSII, JLR, Solaroli etc.

Picco engines have always been fast, most of the times even faster than the best NR engines, but until recently, they had a huge problem with their conrods in their .12 engines. Also, the carburators were horrible.

Now, they got those problems sorted out and their engines are now fast and reliable and most important, affordable.
