They have a magnesium and cylinder lightened version of the 200, but no, they have nothing but stock. That does not stop you from modifying them yourself, change port timing, squish and squish angel, etc., of course it will void the warranty

I do believe I remember something about a third party vendor that did hop-up mods to DA engnies. Names and specifics allude me now ......

He would polish the exhaust port, change the base gaskets to better sinc the port timing and go thru the carb. It really didn't increase power to any degree, but runability. I believe it was Salsa something out of bakersfield california.

I have a new DA-60. It is a beast. No hop up needed. Vertical dragging a 17.25lbs Extra has to been seen to be believed. And it's not broken in yet
