Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/302355828034

30 seconds worth of searching.

Maybe see what Jim has to say first, he won't steer you wrong.

Thank you Wing. Who is this Jim fella?

Update:

Some type of oil pump failure. They are not exactly sure where it all started but an oil pump gear seized, scored the cases, metal shavings all throughout. Crank doesnt turn well. I would need a crank, bearings, cases, piston, gaskets, etc. Too much $ to be worth it.

I will be parting the bike out once I get it back later this week. If anyone is interested in anything, just let me know. Gonna start looking at new bikes that can dual sport.

sorry to hear that. If I wasn't cash strapped building a house I'd buy it to do an electric conversion.

good one! :killingme:

just curious how well he likes the case mod and how it runs. When I got the bike I didn't realize it only had 2 teaspoon oil capacity. 4 TSP if you include the separate gear case - what moron came up with that idea? The Blaise Racing case mod makes it so the crank case and gear case share the same oil. Solves other known problems too.

And no, I'm not planning on doing it. :dirtdog:
