I fitted a Nordwest barrel and piston to my Saturno with Nordwest/RC600 valves and gasflowed inlet-standard 40mm Dellorto-it flew....
Would rev happily up to the rev limiter at 8500-great fun at Cadwell Park.
I parted with the Saturno late last year and now have a Nordwest which has allegedly been 'tuned'-I don't know what if anything was done to it-but it also flies and happily revs into the limiter-runs a 15 tooth gearbox sprocket and pulls it very well.

Still on the standard Teikei carb or with Keihin CR33 smooth bores (the quickest tune up route for a Nordie)?

Still on the standard Teikei but with Arrow exhaust and K&N filter-I have been talking to John about his CR33's though.

Hey John, Was the Saturno the one one youtube running around Cadwell Park?

Hi, did you have any luck sourcing these parts? Any reviews re performance parts for your Saturno?

Stuart, I did actually get these parts however I haven't fitted them as I believe you need to bore the engine cases to fit the barrel. As for the cams I think all they would do is move the engine power and torque higher in the rev range, this isn't what I require of this bike.

Cheers Murray
