Cylclops....great job on those!!! Impressive! cool "Termignoni" decal tooFrom my past experience on modifying cars I take an engine swap over internal's modification all day, hands down.
When you start cracking cases and stroking and boring stuff it's a never ending money pit. Nothing beats the a factory motor designed with a budget of few order of magnitude greater than any Joe Performance.
In this case it is so stupid simple, mostly plug and play that the alternative is even more non sensic... But that's just IMHO
I would be curious to know if the 1098 airbox fits under the 999 tank as is.
For the mapping I would recommended checking with JTP as an alternative.

the only extra titanium would be the valves. and you have to swap the whole R motor as the major components aren't interchangeable.What about updating your 999S to 'R'-spec? Might cost less and the power would in the ballpark of a standard 1098. Plus it would have the coolness of titanium bits
Waste of money as the R spec is mostly about titanium bits as mentioned. If he were to do that he would be better off with the 1038cc kit, get the cams degreed, lighten and balance the crank, some porting and valve work. He have more HP/TQ with the 1038cc kit over both the R and 1098. Another option while it's out is to have the crank done.What about updating your 999S to 'R'-spec?
