i really hate to thread jack, but how much am i looking to spend if i get someone to do the rebuild? i already know the parts are going to cost close to a flipping grand, is it really worth it to rebuild the motor, or should i just buy a whole new one?
Hey Talgies - you should consider decaf.... you seem to be all over the place with your posts - wants and desires. I've tried to assist you, as has boost, with the proper fixes and we've given you the best possible advice.
Now - as far as "This Engine Rebuild" - Had you completely read the entire thread - I explain that there are two motors involved - my original (which I have rebuilt and runs fine) and the "Used One" which blew up after one week in the hull.
If you have the time - it will take you about 24 Hrs - if you work, like most of us, a bit longer depending on your schedule and other duties.
The second hand motor ran 250.00 US and parts @700.00 US plus your labor. If you do not have the tools, knowledge or patients to do the job - then I recommend to you that you sell it and get a new one (whole bike) cause you'll just mess this up and get more pissed off and kill someone.
I'd be happy to assist you in you efforts, but don't trash my thread - It's helped many, and with yours, if you choose to do so, will help many others.
