DWMS Racing XS1100 Big Bore 1196cc Engine Build!

Post by joeyputt on Thu Jan 03, 2013 8:36 pm

Here is another engine build that I completed recently, this engine is a XS1100 that we put a big bore 1196cc piston kit in, we also changed the camshafts to the good 79 cams, the cylinder head has a three angle valve job and we ported the intake and exhaust ports, added a modern cam chain tensioner, etc. We also replaced all of the gaskets and put a nice cosmetic package on the engine including satin black paint on the cylinder head, cylinders, engine covers, and engine cases, as a nice wine color on the valve cover, oil cap, and custom DWMS Racing billet crankcase breather. We sanded the edges of the cylinder head fins and gave them a nice satin polish and lightly polished the engines side covers. I hope you all like the way this one looks!

You all know how much I love to post before and after photos of engines and motorcycles that we build so today I took a few photos before we started to disassemble the engine for the rebuild.

I finished painting the rest of the engine covers as well as the starter cover and we also finished washing and preparing the engine cases and painted them. I was still sanding the center of two front engine side covers to prepare them for polishing however here are some photos of how everything looked!

These photos show the cylinders after they were machined to fit the big bore pistons and with the new satin black paint.

Thank You Brothers, hearing your kind words about my work always inspires me to keep being creative!

Brother Hayweed this was one of the very first forums that I ever joined so it will always be a special place for me, I have been very busy with work so I have not been on the forums a lot however I have always been very proud to be a member here!

Brother JSteel I truly am blessed to be able to make a living for my family by doing what I love to do, I am not rich financially however as long as I make enough to take care of my family I will always be happy! I also posted some before and after photos of the Bridgestone motorcycle restoration I just completed here in the project section if you would like to look at it and I started a build thread for the RD350 that I am building now!
