Cylinder head
« on: February 20, 2015, 10:40:14 AM »
The 900ss heads in use at the time of MH900E production were stamped V2. MH900E heads are stamped V2 on the front but J1 for the rear. This implies that there is a difference in specification. Anyone know what that might be?

I never noticed the "J1" stamp.  I know the "V" heads are considered superior to the earlier "W" heads used primarily on 750s and on some M900s, for what that's worth.
