Nice work... BUT....
You are asking a lot out of it... and the new cyl/head studs are great. BUT, are you threading them into the stock case? Or, are you putting in "Case Savers"? (can't tell from the pic)
Back in the day... playing with air cooled VW's... we would pull the (aluminum) threads out of the case running high compression, or Boost. So, we would drill the case threads, and insert a threaded sleeve (steel) with a backer, so the studs couldn't pull out.

Actually... on second sight.... that cyl doesn't look like it's going to be very reliable. There's almost no "Meet" on the cam chain side. So.... 1) You will have really bad cooling at that point. and 2) it's not supported very well, so the cyl will wind up being oval shaped as it warms up... and 3) There's minimal head gasket clearance. With boost... that's just asking to blow out.
For a 200cc cyl... you need a heavier casting to start with.
Nice numbers... but I'll be more interested in hearing how it's doing after a few thousand miles.
we need more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
