Fellers, A while back I made reference to my broken engine on the 650. Well, she is fixed once again! I was able to successfully rebuild the engine. I tore it all the way down and replaced the crank, crank bearings, seals, piston, rings, ECT. The local Honda shop told me I was getting in over my head and that I did not have the skills to make the repair. Well, guess they were wrong! Anyways, if you have a lower engine problem, don't be afraid to dig in there, it is not too tough and you get bragging rights at the camp fire if you pull it off!
