I have about 1,100 into it by the time I am done. It will be almost a new bike. I will post some pics when its all done. My engine will be ready about mid march. I ended up hiring a guy to machine, and rebuild the motor. He works at a harley dealership and has the winter off.
I just got my engine back last night. I had a couple blown valves, and 3 bad lifters.
I am painting the engine a flat black and it will have to sit for a week before I can run it. I should have it finished painting by Tuesday, engine back in on Wednesday and start re-connecting electrical on Thursday.
I cant wait to fire it up for the first time.
I will. It looks like a brand new bike. Its an 86 and now has a brand new engine. I will run this bike till it dies. I spent about 700 on the engine rebuild alone. I did not know that gaskets would cost so much....I wish they still made our bikes, so things would be easier to get and cost a lot less.
I need to do similar work to my '03. Looking for a generator cover and stator cover. Any ideas?
Don't expect a response from robbie7045 as that poster has not been active since 4/30/2011.
and always remember, "Ride until you rot!" **Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
