yep, that "fun" roughly adds 20% on the price.
considering current budget, it's out of question this year.

meanwhile, cases are split and stuff is out.
collected nearly all pieces of piston.
gearbox is alright, no worn teeth or dogs.
sadly, not the same with the crank. so far was unable to measure runouts, but other measurements are not very promising -

guess at least new bearing is needed. after finding the way of measuring runouts, further decisions will come.

Ok, bearing and rod, dont use old if you first take the shaft apart. If you havent changed any bearings around its time to do them all, how about the head cam etc any wear
marks?
Was the rotor stuck or did it come off easy? The problem is that with all you need for doing this complete rebuild its no low budget build, do it all or you will regret later when you have to start from beginning.

thanks, will consider the new rod as well.
head & cam were looking good, haven't checked valves and springs yet. but cam chain was almost to the end of its life, tensioner had one last position left.
rotor was not very stubborn. came off pretty similar like last year when had to replace the starter clutch - good pressure with diy puller + one good hammering.
yup, this rebuild is still pricey than expected. although, the reserve of some spares (gaskets, chain, clutch etc.) collected earlier somehow help. also, maybe couple friends abroad (greece and germany) will be able to find and send used parts in good condition, this also might make the life easier, let's see...

Ok, yes been doing alot of buying from Germany earlier years, it was alot of parts and good price. But lately its not the same, prices is really high and not much good used parts. Here you cant find used parts for those, still good buys on good bikes low km. Good luck getting bike on the road again

thanks a lot for a good wishes! hopefully, not too much of the spring will be missed..
meanwhile, checking some options of con rods and even used crankshafts online. this later is sometimes listed with appropriate measurements as well, making option to consider. all this leads me to the new question - are there any year or model (xt/tt) difference for con rod and crankshaft?

conrod kits from PROX are relatively cheap and quite well made, had one in my racing supermono. easy to find in ebay.


question is if you have a decent shop who can put it back together with the right alignment.

thanks for info. seems they also have pistons and other parts which i'm gonna need sooner or later.
yep, that question about decent workshop is very exact and actual. still have to check couple remaining options but expectation so far is not very optimistic.
that's why considering maybe whole crank/rod set (used..), assuming that someone will be ok/able to measure at least free plays. let's see.
