No offense Lucky but has anyone dealt with lucky700r? I'm considering him for some work but wondering who else has gone through him and what the results were.

White Knuckle has done some great work in the past along with building some great parts for the raptor. They just haven't been on top of the raptor game in the last few years. IMO

thanks for the info guys, how is White Knuckle Racing, I was also looking at some of their stuff
I wouldn't let White Knuckle touch my kids tri-cycle. They sent me a TB that first with their boot wouldn't stay on the head. The high dollar TB then came apart and sent throttle plate screws threw my brand new 778. So I've since rebuilt the throttle body to how it should've been from WK from the start for an almost $700 piece. It did give me a reason to switch from 12.5:1 to 14:1 and to go from 5050 cam to the 5150 along with less restrictive pipes. So thanks to Eric at WHITEKNUCKLE for giving me a reason to go bigger.

Ok so heres my next question. Who can build a strong running NA motor that will push 80 hp and run every weekend with minimum shop time (I know when building something like this there is always shop time but I want something nasty for where I'm at and I don't have to pull it into the trailer to work on it after every ride)

My 778 was at 83hp at 12.5:1 with +2 extreme port head 5050 cam and 54mm TB
I had no issues until the WK TB sent screw into the engine. I'm now looking at close to 90 when I go have it tuned with the 14:1 and 5150 cam idk numbers yet but hoping to get 87-90hp with a trip to dyno I'm running a good base map just slightly rich right now.

Fast
Reliable
Cheap

You only get to pick 2 of the above. Fast and Reliable is gonna cost you big money but it is doable. 80hp is no cheap journey to begin with though just a FYI. I bet with all the supporting mods you will be in the $4000 plus range or more depending on the parts you buy. Where are you located at?

I'm in south eastern wyoming. The money is not an issue, I just want to do my research before I send my motor to someone to make sure that I have something fast and reliable and done by someone who will back there work and give me any support for questions I may have after the build

I think just about any of the builders could get you going. DL700(Cuervo) puts some nasty motors together and you hear nothing but good things about him. I have bought a few parts from him and he was always quick to answer questions and ship things out. I think many will vouch for him being great at what he does.

I agree with spider about white knuckle, stay away from them. Their customer support sucked last time I had to deal with them.

+1 after their boot didn't work. I called emailed and got a reply after about a month that they was designing a newer boot style and sending me one. It never came. So I took a few oem boots and started modding them until I got it right. That's how their customer care goes.
