jpk1080: I bought the bike for $800, and spent $1200 on all the parts. That includes misc gaskets, gasket sealant and shipping. My budget was $1,500 originally. I expanded it to $2k for the big bore kit. And my final spreadsheet was cost $2,000.36. Pretty happy I was able to fairly accurately predict all the misc costs that tend to add up on projects like these.

Update: Getting the bike ready for a nine day ride through the Tetons, Yellowstone and Beartooth pass area. Mechanically, the bike has been superb after the rebuild. I'm really looking forward to this ride. After the trip, I'll most likely be selling it to buy a friends 2008 DR650.
