2006 prowler 650h1 xt top end rebuild

So my top end needs a rebuild. The head gasket was leaking and piston and cylinder are a bit scored up. Could maybe use cylinder still. What TO Do Rebuild stock or go with the 700 big bore? I'd. Anyone have parts laying around lookin to get rid of. Thanks

If you need to replace the cylinder, and piston, then you might as well go with a big bore kit. Early 650 may be limited to 700 cc, but check with the supplier on this. I know of two firms off hand, Campbell Enterprise Inc., and Speedwerx. I have a 750 kit on my 700, and I went with the Campbell kit. Personal preference on my part! Replacing the cylinder is a fairly easy job! Many stories around regarding head bolts, most people stress that they are a one time use, but can't confirm that one way or another. I just know that I broke two out of the four bolts one time, and that really sucked! LOL

OK thanks for that info I'll check. I have heard that about the bolts as well. Does anyone know where I can get studs for it or are any even made aftermarket?

Studs are another story! I was working with ARP to develop a set, and they must have lost interest! Have not returned any e-mails. So for what it is worth, I made my own studs up, double ended 10X1.25X230mm. One of the studs needs to have a reduced shank, as it also serves as an oil passage to the top end. I ordered 10mm round bar stock off the web, and picked up taps from sears. I change the nuts on my studs every time I pull the head, now instead of 80 plus dollars for bolts, I spend 2 dollars on flanged class 12 nuts!

You can put a 750 kit on your prowler but you have to make the opening on your cases bigger...the 2006 650h1 is the only year you have to too that to

That would give you a 700 for the cost of a cylinder, and a piston. 550/650/700 all share the same stroke. Camshaft share the same pattern, and heads are the same also.

Word of caution here! I'd double check the base of the cylinder's diameter. They show two different part numbers for the base gasket, not sure what the difference is. Quick check would be to put a 700 base gasket on your case to see if the bolts line up, and the cylinder base will fit your case. I've heard it will fit, but I can't confirm or not!

RD It will fit I was thinking of doing that awhile back and called speedwerx about it,and he said on the 2006 650 motor that the opening in the case would have to be made bigger,on the 2007 motor the case opening is made bigger,For some reason the 2006 motor was an oddball first year,it also had the stationary secondary spring that you couldn't clock,

Thanks for confirming Mike! That would make a sweet 700 motor, carbureted and all. Make for a bunch of low end!
