There are two of them on eBay ranging from $350-400. I guess I was looking for a cheap way out. Last spring, I found out the hard way, that the choke plate occasionally comes loose and beats the sh.. out of the combustion chamber. I bought a new Wiseco piston, smoothed out the head with emory cloth, lapped the valves, and put it back together. It started on the 3rd kick. It runs pretty strong, but the cylinder has a crack between two water ports and another close to the cylinder wall.

I appreciate you taking the time to check it out.

That's a real bummer.  Any idea how the choke plate let loose?

 

 I think OEM would be the way to go for the price dif. on the cylinder. Head maybe quite a bit more depending on what is salvageable from the original one.

A known issue with some bikes. I didn't know anything about that until after it happened, and looked online.

Anyway, I appreciate your time.
