I'm wondering if there might be a "Performance Kit" available somewhere that would increase the horsepower of this motor?

I think you'd have to throw

I think you'd have to throw quite a bit of money at it and the gains would only be marginal. What really hampers the R60 series is the mild cam which makes it prone to pinging. To really make improvements, you'd have to replace the cam and then bolt on new cylinders/heads. Might as well consider an R75/6 or R90/6...better yet, find an R90S.

THOUGHT SO!

I thought that the case but wanted to make sure. I will sell the R60/5 now and make another choice when I have the time.

Thanks for the reply. Greatly appreciated.
