Ports mean the number of holes there are in the cylinder wall,

These are there to let air and fuel in and mix and also let exhaust gases out,

The 8 port sh motor will produce more power all round and rev higher than the 3 port.

I ran many gallons on my lrp30 savage xss,

Never broke anything,

the lrp30 is the big brother of the sh28 8 port,

The only thing I would upgrade is the stock clutch shoes to alloy ones.
