    What pistons are you using? You will have to have a load of other parts too, that is way too much cam for a stock engine. If the pistons are stock you quite simply will not clear the valves.

    Fancy eye candy that likely does nothing but drain wallets. You'll know if they really work when they begin to shell out the OEM ignitors. What a coil that really works does, the ignitors cannot...

    If the tube is sticking way up in the triple to stick out the top like it looks, lower the fork tubes in the triples.

    You can't ride the bike like that regardless of how cool it looks.
