Pictures, please. Year, miles, price? You are really leaving us hanging.

Congrats, we should start a club.

Wow!! I think I'm going to sell all my 650/rxl parts this winter. I have tons laying around and I don't intend on using them. Originally I was going to build a drag sled, but I think the FST has taken over that mule job.

good buy!!

since you have to rebuild it might as well do some minor port work, set the heads down some. stock they have way to much clearance. gear it down, clutch it and you should have a good sled.

plugs out and exhaust off, out side cylinders burnt at exhaust, center has pitted dome. cats and rabbit running loose in the garage so no antifreeze spilling tonight.

your right it is a 96. they told me they bought it in 97, must have been a carry over. no big deal I guess.

Looks like a bottom up rebuild to me. Take the crank to Indy Dan in Welch and have him redo the crank.

I would at least have the crank inspected. Just for piece of mind......would hate to see you dump a bunch of money on a top end just to have the bottom go.

I had IndyDan redo the crank on my Dragon and it was like $300 and that included welding the case and balancing the crank. but i dont think he put on new bearings.

both outside pistons are missing the rings. only one jug looks like it could be reused maybe. used motor is looking cheap, but then what might I have?
