No worries – start a new thread as you see fit …..
Do you start a new post if you left your bike repairs 7 or so months ago? Or just add to the one I started before?
Also using an iPhone to do this can’t find away to contact the admin / forum boss?

Cool Thank you! will do. Collecting some pictures and will put them together and post
Found the engine online 60 miles from my home. Was in. 2013 they had sold most everything else wanted top dollar but to me it’s worth it. Yamaha doesn’t sell crated engines. I had 50k miles on the original and wound up cooking it. Seems to me someone warned me on here to rejet the carb or you risk burning up the motor. Got extra jets am working on the carb rebuild right now. Had tried to get local help rebuilding the top end. But that kept running into snags. Really I think ppl just didn’t want to get involved in a motor with such mileage. Now I have one with only 800 miles so what I paid for it should get me more the 50k miles
