Carpenter Racing 1430 Motor

I was wondering if anyone on here knows a decent amount about a Bob Carpenter 1430cc motor. I’m looking at picking up a bike soon and one I found has a Carpenter racing 1430 motor in it. I want to use the bike for more street use then track use. I was wondering if this motor can be used for street applications or not?

1430's (85MM) usually will run Hotter than the 1397 (84MM) Engines Because the sleeves are Thinner on the Bores. Other Variables are Compression and your Coolant System Upgrades.
