So to bore it to the 1200's size, you won't have to bore it very far

Seriously, the cylinder on a Blast is a standard 1200 piece. The piston is actually a Thunderstorm piston, from a 98-02 vintage 1200 Buell Thunderstorm motor.

The Blast has a very short stroke (3.125") and a very long rod (7.440").
A Tstorm head? All this time I thought they had a lightning head .
