Also, what kind of cost is associated with a complete engine rebuild (cases included)?
Thanks, and have fun next weekend in Ocala Forest...that's where I was riding!

I'm kinda at a decision point. Do I spend the money and rebuild this motor (from the ground up), or do I part it out and buy another one? Tough call...anyone know what kinda price (parts alone) this rebuild may cost?
Of all my years in dirt bikes, this is the first engine trouble I've had. Guess I was pretty lucky.

The price of the new bikes is what's keeping me from getting one right now. I'm still looking at it, though.

The cost of fixing a grenaded motor can be more than the bike is worth.

Anyway, I ran across a 98 YZ 400F in excellent shape with some aftermarket goodies, and a new back tire (of my choice) for about 2400. I couldn't pass it up. Now I've got extra parts from my WR that I can use on this bike. Sometimes, things just work out.

It went for $207.50. Assuming it was a "real deal" somebody made out with some good spare parts CHEAP!!!
