Default Guide : Performance modification on Enfields

In the course of modifying our 2005 Machismo, we have come across various instances and advices provided by other Bulleteers on what to / not to do on Bullets.

Some which I can recollect are (if someone could post the reasontoo):
Do not fit a free flow filter without rejetting the carb.
Do not fit a free flow silencer which does not have glass wool in it. It may "fry the valves".

Can someone please post the list of mods which can be done to the Bullets and what needs to be kept in mind while doing so.

This post can serve as a guide for all Bulleteers.

We had ( Sankar and me) to test lot of jets after he got the HP filter for his Bull. People even told that so and so filter will pull in dust which we found was not true on inspection of carb and engine ( during moding)

Free flow doesnt help much but a neat designed ( i mean specs) Goldstar can help.

A A350 (the engine that comes in Thunderbird and Machismo) has lot of potential. Was told that it can catch up with a CI 500 easily.

The problem with Bull is DIY.

Would you believe that Sankar's Bull had A350 head and rest is the old engine and he doesnt have that gasket between them!
