LAZER (LOSER) PORTING
« on: November 29, 2007, 09:43:06 AM »
Had Mike from Lazer Porting install valve guides in a cylinder head - everything looked great, looked like a nice job.  Assembled the motor, and once warmed, smoked like a bastard.   New pistons, new block, new valve guide seals, etc.   Took it apart to find that 75% of the guides were loose in the head, allowing oil to get past,  into cylinder and exhaust ports.  Even though the head was ice cold on the bench, I was able to knock the guides right out - one shot with a light ball peen hammer.

Good job Mike!  You got my business - when it comes to heads, think 'LOSER PORTING" . . .

Ron,
   I have no record of doing any work for you, your name does not ring any bells. I build every head as if it was going on my own bike. I believe you have me mixed up with someone else.

Doesnt surprise me. We had one that was supposed to have a fresh valve job and had all of the intake valves leaking.  Not to mention we put one of Bob's head on it and it picked up over 15 hp than when the lazer head was new.  I wouldn't even call it a port job!

I can not comment on Mikes valve guide installations and valve jobs as we do all of that here in house, but I have known Mike both as a supplier and customer for what seems like, forever. We have had him do Kawasaki 2 valve heads when they required oversize seats. We would supply the seats, and the heads came back perfect.

One customer runs a nitrous funnybike with a Lazar head we did for him almost 8 years ago. It is still a 6 second bike.

Not disputing what you guys say, but I can say that if you have been around this sport for any length of time, you will know that these things are not typical of Mikes work.

I can comment about Mikes work at Lazer Porting.  He has done cylinder head and machine work for us since 1999 everything from top gas heads, to Outlaw Pro Street heads, to Pro Mod heads, even streetbike heads for hayabusa's and GS's. He has repaired heads that most would throw in the trash, and they come out looking and running just as good as before.

He has done a few Busa heads for me Nothing but good to say about Mike.
He will also get on the phone and explain, and answer any questions that I ever had.
That goes a long way with me.

I believe Ron Duback works for Frank at powerhouse. At least he used to from info posted here. Frank has stated that he posted here using the Ron Duback account in the past.
Still privately owned and operated by Hayabusa owner enthusiasts.

He did a ZX-11 head for me years ago and it turned out great.

My Buddy had a GENI Busa head done after that. It turned out great, but it took forfuckinever to get it back.
That was 10 years ago, so maybe he's caught up now?
