Any word on this, got your head back? Looks like a nice build.

After calling Hammer they said to send both heads in. I should have them back today, actually. They took great care of me.

As usual their customer service is top notch.

Received the reworked heads back. Installed them a few months ago and all has been well since.

Glad you got it sorted out. It's a $h!++y feeling when a build goes south and you don't know why.

Just got my bike back together and on the road. Similar timing/electrical symptoms(ignition, cps, map, coil, wires, plugs) OK . Loosened rockers and checked cam timing. OK. Took rockers off and found the rear exhaust valve spring broken. Hammer said to send both heads back for a look see. They did a real nice job on their dime. Superb customer service from Hammer. Had approx. 12k miles on the BFH heads.
