... my '03 KTM 640 ADV is in the ICU. The final estimate from 3Brothers Racing to get the bike back on the road is $2,400.00 (that's major scratch for me... I work full time for Saddleback Church, its a great job but noone who works there is there for the salary). The piston rings self destructed. Fortunately there's no secondary damage, but the service department recommends replacing the valves, bearings, and timing chain in addition to repairing the piston and new gaskets. Parts alone add up to $1,400.00 according to their shop manager. I know I can get the replacement parts for less myself, a 15% discount on KTM parts comes in handy. What I don't know is if I can put the engine back together myself. This is a call out to Creeper, Passmore, Surfphoto, Meat Popsicle, and the rest of ya'll who have more experience with this sort of thing than I do. I'm no slouch with a torque wrench, I've got DustJunkie on my side for help as well. Should I tackle this and put her back together myself or is it time to face the music and part her out for sale? If it weren't for the piston rings she'd be in incredible shape, I've really taken good care of her. I'll be picking her up this afternoon; the various pieces of her that is. It is truely a sad day in my garage!
