hamkj, I would go buy a cheap compression tester and check for compression before doing any driving at all. For all you know you might have a hole in top of a piston from detonation broken skirt\rings who knows, but you could end up doing a lot of damage. Me and my brothers race 5 second drag bikes, and this is a common occurrence < sometimes weekly. Just to be safe you know.
