And if you do it this way, you have a used starter, carb,muffler, heads, ect for parts. It will be much smarter to go with the new motor.Originally posted by Mikes Machines
Unless you do the work yourself and figure your time at 3 cents an hour it doesnt pay to rebuild. Call a machine shop and ask how much it would be to turn the crank, bore the cylinders, replace valve guides and cut the seats. Then price all the parts at a Kaw dealer. Now add in your time if you want to do it yourself or figure maybe something like 5 to 8 hours shop time at XX.XX amount. Now compare that to the new motor. The new motor is new and has a warranty from Kawasaki.
