no not really...

tickford had a minimal power increase and the differences were:

Final Drive ratio
Computer
Fuel Reg
Cam shaft
Head

No doubt amongst other things... So just fitting one item is going to make squat difference... You'll get more power out of extractors than the computer change I'd reckon...

Cheers,
Tim
