392cc Athena kit.

I bought a banshee and it had a athena kit, it absolutly RIPPS! i really like the kit and its not "cheap" like everyone is saying. The cylinders and gaskets are quality. The pistons are not the best but ill run them till it needs rebuilt and go to wisecos.
The kit isnt for a guy looking for a big bore kit off the market, this is for the guy who needs a bore. Heres the way i thought of it
250$ piston kit
Thats 340$ thats half the kit price!!!
So u sell ur cylinders 200$
Sell your head 120$
So what u did is buy your rebuild kit, with a good set of cylinders for 680$ and u have a good deal.....
I guess id say a 5 star rating is perfect like a cub motor, these get a 3.5 or 4 star in my book. These cylinders are no joke.
The company; i have yet to deal with, but i will be communicating with them soon getting some inside shit for u guys here. I will be posting everything said.
Guys, theres no need for bashing here. Im just posting my review. Im sure if a few of you picked up this kit you would see what im saying. Plus u can pay to get the port job of your choice from a sponsor. Its still supporting one of our supporters.

My bike will be: athena kit, pro circuit pipes, 28mm carbs, no airbox lid, 19cc domes, vf3 reeds, +4 timing.
I will be trying both 28mm carbs and 30mm carbs
Buddys banshee: trail ported 65mm pistons, 4mil, vf3 reeds, 28mm flat slides, uni pods 22cc domes, wiseco pistons, +2 timing
Ive road his bike and im POSITIVE i can get what i need out of my athena bike to atleast stay with him the whole time. Then i will be porting it and posting new results.

By toned down im saying its not better or the same as a 421 cub. Its a 392cc
hmmmm, ran like a 421 cub huh but toned down. I would imagine that powerband would suck dick on trails??

doesn't sounds impressive to me.
and if is like a cub, it would have a peaky curve and not a broad curve, again not good.
