    Well...
    Things does not allways turn out the way you think.

    The 853 kit I bought was actually a 888 kit for 851...
    So I bidded on a 1098 SF engine for a transplantation in to the 748. In the time I was offered a 999R for a good price and suddenly I know have two big project during the winter...

    As dlivered:


    Surprise inside (it did run with out any suspicious noise)
    Ends up with a major rebuild...

    Cheers!

    Was it the 1098 or the 999R that had the failed main bearing?
    I've heard of quite a 999's that have eaten their mains.

    Its the 999 with bad bearings.
    Quite a shoping list now:
    New coating on the barrels, new pistons (Pistal) all new bearings, regrinding of crank, etc.
    Valves and guides where ok.

    I have not yet opened the 1098 engine but I have a set of new carillos and I ordered new Pistals and new main bearings for that engine also.
    Hope rest of the family will be happy with cheap christmas gifts....
    Cheers!

    Getting there...
    Never had a bike that had been so badly treated by previus owners before.
    Every bearing except for the stearing bearings and the bearing in the clutch operator(?) plate is replaced.

    Getting there slowly. I hope I like it on the track...
    Cheers!
