2008 650 blown engine

I have a 2008 650 that broke a piston. Ruined the cylinder, head and crank. I checked parts and cat doesn't sell the head anymore and the 650 parts cost more than the 700. The crank and cases are same as the 700. My question, can I install a new crank with 700 head, piston, and cylinder? 700 is injected and 650 is carb so my take some resetting. Has anyone had experience with this change?

Heads are interchangeable, later year 650 crankcases will take a 700 cylinder without any modification. I'd stick with your case, go with a 700 cylinder and piston, and head. Keep the carburation and go have fun! Try PowerSportsNation for quality used parts!

fuel related melt or ??

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us
