I just bought an ('06?)/'07 Prowler 650 H1 project. It has a bad motor that I will be repairing/replacing.

I look forward to getting this thing going and having some fun with it.

Thanks for all of the warm welcomes...

I had bought this hoping that it was just the top end of the motor... but it looks like there is lots of clearance in the conn rod bearing. and there is piston and cylinder pieces thru the lower end. I still have to pull out the motor, and am definitely curious as to how much damage there is.

I will post some photos when I have a chance. this is from the first day:

From the looks of the cylinder, it had a hard life! If it was my project I'd go for a new engine. Many benefits over rebuilding, new trans, new engine, bevel gears updated and so on. But this is just my opinion, food for thought. Others have rebuilt with great results!

Yes I would say it had a hard life,once you start running numbers on parts VS new engine you will figure out what your gonna do.Do you plan on keeping it.When you get it tore clear down I would like to see what the oil pump gears look like.

Those rockers looked like mine when my driven gear stripped and stupid me replaced the top end without checking out everything so I burned it up again! I said screw it and with some influence from my wife dropped a new engine in and it's running great. Unless you can find some used parts it will probably cost more to rebuild.
