A damaged head sells for 250: http://www.ebay.com/...52876d2&vxp=mtr
And I've seen clean titled SM frame going for a thousand bucks
...Why shouldnt I just part out my bike?
Kidding, however I recently purchased a frame and complete motor that came off a 2000 S model for 200 bucks. The guy said it need a top end, which I knew meant it was trashed. It had a MCCT that had all but 1/4 inch of thread left and had a broken exhaust cam bracket, cam journals chewed up, and valve seats damaged. One of the exhaust valves dropped, bounced off the piston and head then either decided to exit the motor or the person that determined all it needed was a "top end" removed the broken off valve. The piston was trashed, but the cylinder was spotless, and the rod was not bent. Also there was no vertical play in the rod. A pair of cases right now on Fleabay is 250, I was thinking 350 for a complete bottom end was not over asking. I do not want to turn this into a for sale thread, I'm just trying to be realistic about what this is worth.
One of my ideas was to get this motor, buy the ACT gears, a stroker crank, BB kit, TI valves, RHC's, and springs and build a monster motor to swap with my current Z.
