Try calling Sturgess Cycle in Hamilton - Kenny Riedmann family shop in Hamilton Ont. and see if they can give you the name of his engine builder. I can't recall the name but heard from a couple of guys at our local tracks that he is a genius.

Also Latus Motors in Oregon. Honestly as much as I like Hord and Power Tripp I would go to Latus first because they have really built a heck of a race bike that has been extremely reliable (except for the rider) in AMA racing and clearly is in the top tier for power in the class.

After I spoke in detail with Kenny and his dad in great detail, I'd recommend them over RSR. I'll leave it at that.

Gotta give props to the folks up North, always seem the be the nicest, most friendly folks when it comes to business. If only the US dollar was stronger :-(

Had a pretty bad experience with Power-Tripp, and would not recommend them. Read review here:
