    Re: New JS440 owner

    Appreciate all you help. I found a guy up here in Canada on kijiji that I'm talking to right now about an aluminum jug that has a 76mm bore, if i can get it for a decent price I might just re sleeve it. I saw your reply to my ad bionic racing, are they in good condition? i would definitely be interested if you didn't mind shipping to Canada. In your opinion is it worth it to re sleeve a jug or find a better bore? I plan on tearing the whole engine apart and fix whatever needs to be done so I appreciate the knowledge. I didn't start it personally but was told that it ran great but bogged when you gave it gas.

    He said $275 shipped (seems steep) for the 76mm bore aluminum. What would you be looking for for one of your cast irons?

    Re: New JS440 owner

    It might be another couple weeks before I have time to pull out the engine and really start stripping it down. Lot on the go this week and next week I'm heading to Montreal for a week, plan on doing it when I get back from that trip. Definitely will check it out. Waiting for my Clymer manual to get in so I can pull the crank and throw it on some v blocks with some dial indicators to see if it's in spec. Are there any other things i should check while I have the crank out? Anything else that's known to go?

    Since you will have it apart replace the crankshaft end seals with Kawasaki OEM ones.

    Re: New JS440 owner

    Your manual will give you stator specs, ohm it out since you have to assume it ran before you purchased from the same guy that said it was a 440 , affirmative on above post also
