Default 4 valve Buell heads?

I am trying to find some info on 4 valve Buell heads made by a company called Max "T" Engines. I can't seem to get there web site. Does anyone have any info here that they would share (preformance wise) about these or any other 4 valve head that would fit on a XL/Buell?.

Can't say that I've heard of such a company, but I'll keep my ears open for you. I'd love to see the bottom end on that thing; I wonder if uses quad or twin cams?

I've heard of them and even talked to the owner, but it was several years ago. I think I even talked to Aaron about them. This was back when we were running speed trials. To the best of my recollection, the decision was that 4 valve heads weren't the greatest for street use.

But then my memory isn't what it used

Easiest way to find out is to PM or call Aaron! He or Dan will be able to answer your question PDQ.

I have found some info on the net about guys using the 4 valve heads for evo big twins,... the first thing that I thought was... to me anyway was... this would be like putting 4valve heads on a Belarous tractor . These engines do not spin to 7000+ rpm do they???, not to mention I would think most big twins are the weight of two (or more ) Buells, are they not?. I would think an XL version 4 valve head engine could really make some big hp numbers and preform much better compared to any low reving big twin?.

Hi Dan... I realize it won't be cheap but can you guys get a set of these heads?, I would think with one of your 88" kits and the right cams/components one these engines could really be a trick powerhouse. I think this would be a good option to a big stroker.

Very VERY expensive and the performance does not justify the cost involved.

You would be a lot better off getting a set of our stage 4 STD heads for around $1900. The 4 valves heads will cost at least $3500.
