Engine dynamics, BRG, Megacycle cams, there were others but that's all i can recall- they used to have parts for racing/building an EX motor. The motor started out as a 400, got bumped to 454, then to 500 for the EX500- that's why there's not much room to go bigger. With the cam chain in the middle, the crank is weak and tends to break when you go bigger. It's hard building one up knowing it's gonna grenade eventually. Wolf 66 built a racebike, do a search- Falicon crank, 650 or 680 cc, megacycle cams, like 80 hp... it cost over 5,000 to build the motor back in the 90's- I bought it in pieces, i'll sell it since i got an RZ350 i'd rather get together, but the Falicon has rust on it.
