06 WR450 - What next? Sell or Keep?

My bike recently stretched the timing chain... im assuming its that and it resulted in a pisonslap...

Im hoping I dont need new valves, but if worst comes to worst, should i rebuild to stock form and sell (I have a buyer waiting currently, cash in hand)the bike has done 6000miles.

Or do I fix her up, repaint the frame and engine covers, do some head and cam work, rejet her and ride her another year or so.

Ive been extremely happy with her, im just thinking maybe its time to let er go?

I donnnt knowwww :busted:

what would you do?

i suppose it just depends on how much money you can afford to catch on fire

fix and sell

fix and sell

Good advice !

That depends on what a new ride would cost.

what you can get out of yours after it is running.

And how much it will cost to get it running. cam chain is only $17

Steve, I bought the bike for $5600 (converterd to US$) and ive got an offer of $5350 after a years riding and 6k miles.

Nice.

Is he taking it as is or do you have to fix it first?

And if you have to fix it can you do it yourself?

I just looked at the parts list for it,not sure if you can get parts as cheap as we can here.

Intake valves were $75 each,exhaust were $90.

Parts are not that bad its the damn labor that kills ya:bonk:

Are you getting a new bike?
