XL350R esploded

Recommended Posts

Had 3 valves part company with their heads.

Bounced around and trashed the combustion chamber before exiting into the crankcase through the piston.

How hard is it going to be for me to find a head?

Piston too-looks like I will need .5 over and bore the cylinder to clean up.

Very sad-bike has 2500 miles on it.

That sucks. Heads are getting rare but they do come up, just got to be watching and ready.  I just saw one last week on fleabay that looked in pretty nice shape.

Are you talking about the one with the gouged up combustion chamber?

Naw, the one I saw looked decent. But my "time" memory is horrible. Might have been 2 or 3 weeks ago. Or another website.  Sorry
