I never heard of them either but a customer of mine wants me to install them on his bike....I'm a little leary to tell you the truth. He is bringing them over for me to look at...I'll go from there.Hillsidecycle.com said:Doc,
I've never heard of "Hotshot Heads".
This is why we don't hear about them...I suspected as much...thankshdryder said:They are from sandusky ohio, and i have nothing good to say about them! Had them machine in and install some compression releases into some sportster heads, they both blew out after a few miles! They also balanced the crank as well, the bike has never vibrated soooo bad. I've heard some other horror storys about them too. When I first got started with them the guy on the phone was telling me how thier heads are so much etter then everyone elses, and stating that others just do it wrong! Some of the name he was stating are leading guys in the industry!

Have you ever seen any results of their heads?Hillsidecycle.com said:Doc,
We do know of Hot Shot Motor Works, in Ohio. I was suspecting that they may be of that origin, but not knowing all the particulars, also thought that maybe another outfit altogather.

The ports look good (at least the workmanship does) I did cc them yesterday and the rear was 87cc and the front was 91cc so that didn't thrill me. I'm cutting them down to a 86cc chamber for the compression and squish I need. I'll report the results as soon as I get her tuned.06roadglide said:I didn't see this come up last month so sorry I didn't chime in for you.
I am using their heads and I'm very pleased with them also. The quality of work was excellent. A bit pricey though.
I would post the dyno sheet but when I try the "Manage Attachments" button it doesn't do anything.
With the build I had at the time I was getting 105/105 @ 14.5 fuel ratio with the typical Rinehart tru-dual sluggish bottom end. The tuner was "Rolling Thunder:thumbsdn: " He used the tuning link so there was no human touch to it and when I rode home it would detonate bad, real bad. So I worked on the map in the problem areas and got the detonation out and it ran much better. I would say it was around 110 TQ after that but not verified.
Since then, I have now installed a D&D fatcat and now it runs like it should starts pulling really hard at about 2300 rpm but like above I have not verified any of this with an actual dyno, but I'm welling to bet it's alot better than with the rineharts.
