Haha..
Ask me how many times I pulled mine apart.
It's all part of the bonding process.
You get to know the engine pretty well though as you mentioned.

Haha! Now I don't feel so bad. I do enjoy the wrenching and yeah it's a good way to get really familiar with your motor/bike but damn a guy gets antsy to see the results of such a build too!
Which I finally have now. Put a few miles on just before these damn thunderstorms hit again early evening yesterday and while I still have to be nice to it for awhile, I am impressed.
I haven't really experienced the full gain up top yet with the 570s but I can say I sure didn't feel any loss in torque down low either. It way more responsive to the throttle too and I haven't even tuned the carb yet. I think it's real close as is tho.
