Are you still talking about your sex life or are you talking about dirtbikes?

Sounds like a $10 front sprocket fix to me - unless the chain really IS shot. If its not too loose on the rear sprocket, I'd keep it.

...and as for Somers, don't rule me out. If I can make it, I will. I always welcome the oppourtunity to deny one one of you fucks, I mean friends, a trophy. LOL.

Edit: probably no trophies because its a Turkey Run, is there even timekeeping?

I wish it was, but the rear sprocket is looking pretty sharp, and the adjusters are at the max
I would hate to get into the woods and pull a Capt Redbeard trailside maintenance move

So the rings gave up on you?

I was considering doing that job to my 400exc, so I studied up on it. Turns out it didn't need it, but I'd seriously consider Manchester Honda/KTM's services, just get a quote over the phone.

Now, if the motor is really screwed up, and you want to get a new motor, there are a couple guys (at least) that you can send it and make it 120% of what it was. Total rebuild is around $2000

If you just want to do top end stuff, and are willing to make it a home project, I'd figure on up to $500. I've done a few and that's about the average. Personally, no experience with the cylinder plating so I'd consider it toast too. I have every cylinder I work on machined to the next size up so the bore and piston match perfectly.

Plating will be restored to it's original size.

You'll need timing chain beak/stake, clutch holder & valve spring compressor. Measure the height of all the valve springs, clean the valves and head completely, relap valves into the seats, It'll need to be cleaned and inspected well, trust me.

Hope this makes some kind of sense / helps a little.
