Stolen and Recovered 700XX

I thought I would share my story with this site for fun.

I bought a stolen and recovered 2008 700XX. When I bought it, it didn't run. I thought maybe it was swamped before but still decided to take a chance.

Turns out the piston was badly damaged and cracked the cylinder (obviously I didn't look it over very good because the crack goes through to the outside of the cylinder haha).

So I decided to get a Cylinder Works Big Bore 727 Kit (might as well upgrade while I'm doing all this work).

List of problems:

-Cracked Cylinder
-Squished Piston
-Broken Clutch Lever
-Broken Clutch Hub (caused by me haha)

I came in knowing nothing about motors (I wouldn't say I know anything now either). I'm hoping to bolt this kit on and have everything run fine so I can enjoy my toy.

I can add some more pics for anyone who wants to see something in particular (it is still apart waiting for dowel pins to come in).

Also one of these is a wise investment. Did the same on my brand new Honda 1993 CR125R some years ago.

Looks like it got just a little warm!!!

I would check out the cooling components to make sure they all work.

Hopefully it still ends being a good deal when you have it running again.

bracdmcg3000,
I that just a reflection on the cam chain or is that melted aluminum on it? WOW!!!
You sure have your work cut out for you. Got to give you credit for taking on that seemingly impossible project. Sure hope you decide to pull the lower end apart. That mess on top sure makes you think what is down below especially if your going to put in a big bore kit. Best of luck. Keep us updated on your progress.
Very Respectfully,
Sid

Holy crap that looks horrible. Almost looks like someone tried to kill it. I would say the crank is most likely damaged as well judging by the piston and cylinder damage.

Yea, too me looks like they ran it like they stole it lol & w/out any oil. This would probably be the route I'd take. And then rebuild, or look for a better engine this was just only one I seen.

I have just about all the bearings to rebuild the lower end except for the crank bearings and one or two others. Just rebuilt my motor a few months ago. You really don't need a clutch holding tool, just an aluminum washer to jam the gear on the back of the basket to break it lose. Propane torch, bearing extractor set with weight slide, deadblow or rubber hammer, freezer for your new bearings, arbor press, a manual, and crank puller/separator. But if this is your first time rebuilding a motor, you might want to think about paying someone else to do it!
