Damn, I don't know if everyone caught that, but I'm pulling for your recovery. Damn cagers and their inattention. Keep looking, forks turn up here pretty often. Keep us posted!

Well, I did get the bike fixed to ride this summer, but the shop that did it.. didn't really straighten the front forks out that much.. They are still off.

Now it is time to take it all apart so I can stop the smoke thats burning out the left pipe.. I sure hope this works out.

Nice!

You nailed the geometry. I can't look at a rigid Tri where it's a straight shot from the steering head to the axle plates. And the axed tank is perfect!

Thanks for the comments.. I worked on it when I could in the (cold)..
I hope it's just valves, but lackluster seems to think i should tear into it to see how that sludge trap is.. I think I need to.. $$$$ adding up quickly..

I found 1 washer on ! head bolt out of 4 of them..( it's the one on the right) So did someone put it there in the past, does it not belong, and I found no O ring on the push rod tubes, only blue gasket sealer. Looks like this has been apart in the past. The search continues....!

Hey Kevin- I thought about it for a bit after we talked about it last night. It's definitely cheaper to pick up a big bore kit than it is to try and track down some decent 650 jugs, have them bored and honed, buy pistons, rings, gasket, etc. Plus with a new big bore kit you'd be starting over with a stock bore. I know you were going back and forth on either doing just the top end or splitting the cases, but since it's burning oil and its already .060 over I'd say its probably got some serious miles on it and it might be due for a teardown. Also, if the previous owners did do some work on it and they left out o-rings and washers etc, plus you can't ride in MN for another 4 months, might be a good time to do it!

If the basic things like push rod tube o-rings and head bolt washers were left off, I'd be wondering what else was forgotten about internally.

Sucks you had to tear it down and find shody work, bright side is it will be new inside and you will know the quality of the work!

I relate to what you are doing and I can tell you how to make your pistons live if they come with 0.002 wall clearance, depending on pistons of course. I have heard some of those kits have tight clearances.
